Google Cloud in worldwide wobble, G Suite, YouTube affected

When Google breaks everything breaks

Starting earlier today, users started reporting that they were unable to connect to Google services such as Google Cloud, Gmail, YouTube, G Suite.

Google has pledged to investigate the source of an hours-long outage that left popular services that rely on its cloud technology down for most of Sunday afternoon.

Google pointed to "high levels of network congestion in the eastern U.S., affecting multiple services in Google Cloud, G Suite and YouTube".

The issue, which primarily affected the eastern parts of the United States, was resolved in the early hours of this morning.

As the Verge noted, third-party services Discord, Snapchat, and Vimeo all use Google Cloud in their backends, with the outages preventing users from logging in.

‘Forbidden Planet’ found by astronomers in Neptunian Desert
The researchers suspect that NGTS-4b may have only recently moved into the Neptunian Desert, perhaps over the last million years. Researchers estimate it stokes the planet's atmosphere to a downright infernal 1,832 degrees Fahrenheit or roughly 1,000 Celsius.

The outage likely wasn't as disruptive as it would've been had it occurred on a weekday, but many users still took to Twitter to express frustration over the issue.

With most companies offloading their entire backend to Google (or Amazon, or Microsoft), it also means they are fully dependent on one service in order to operate.

According to Google, the incident was detected at 2019-06-02 12:53 and ended at 2019-06-02 16:56 (US Pacific time). Last night, Google reported several issues with its Cloud Platform, which made several Google sites slow or inoperable.

In addition to GMail and Calendar, affected services included Google Drive and its related editing and presentation tools, like Docs and Sheets, Hangouts, Keep, Tasks and Voice. Our engineering teams have completed the first phase of their mitigation work and are now implementing the second phase, after which we expect to return to normal service. "This detailed report will contain information regarding SLA credits", the latest update reads.
