Google Cloud Fixes Outage That Hit Home Depot, Snap, Spotify
Home Depot, Spotify Among Multiple Websites Reportedly Seeing Outages
(Bloomberg) -- Google’s cloud services, which provide computing power for many major companies’ websites, have been fully restored after outages on Tuesday that were caused by a glitch in a network configuration.
Networking issues plagued major consumer websites from 9:35 a.m. to 11:28 a.m. San Francisco time, the Alphabet Inc.-owned company said on a status dashboard. The configuration update happened at 10:10 a.m., and made websites unable to balance traffic loads. Google’s Cloud Run, App Engine, Cloud Functions and Apigee services were also affected.
Multiple company sites that run on Google’s cloud, from Home Depot Inc. to Spotify Technology SA, were seeing user reports of outages midday, according to Downdetector. Users also reported issues on Etsy Inc. and Snap Inc.’s services. These companies later said the issues had been resolved.
