9. Service Outages Hit Salesforce, Google Cloud, Slack

Cloud computing and the internet have become integral to how people work today. So much so that service interruptions with cloud services are no longer just disruptive, they can bring business to a complete halt.

And there have been a number of such incidents in 2019 so far. Salesforce grappled with the worst service disruption in its history for several days in late May, leaving sales agents and marketers around the world unable to access customer information.

Cloudflare, which provides content delivery network services for millions of websites, experienced a massive outage June 24 that brought much of the internet to its knees.

Several core Microsoft cloud services, including compute, storage, application development, Active Directory and SQL database services, were hit by a nearly three-hour DNS outage May 2 that also impacted the vendor's Microsoft 365 and Dynamics 365 cloud applications.

Google Cloud services, including G Suite and YouTube, failed for about four hours June 2 when cascading errors created a network congestion problem.
