A Google outage that affected Gmail and Google Drive users globally starting approximately 2:53am GMT has been resolved, Google said this morning, apologising for the issue but providing scant details on what caused the serious performance errors, which lasted approximately four and a half hours.
The outage came a day after Google’s Cloud status page also showed issues with its Google App Engine Blobstore API and App Engine Version Deployment, with the company’s engineering team having to migrate underlying storage infrastructure to resolve the issue, which lasted over three hours.
App Engine is a web framework and cloud computing platform for developing and hosting web applications in Google-managed data centres. The outage left companies scrambling to inform their customers any app outages were not their fault and that Google was addressing the issue
Dear Agile CRM customers, Google App Engine is experiencing an outage at the moment. Agile CRM’s services might be temporarily affected by this. @googlecloud team is on it and a fix is expected soon. We regret the inconvenience and appreciate your patience in the meantime.
