Google Cloud Platform outage was reported on June 2nd and lead to 4 hours downtime. Multiple Google services were inoperable or showed slow performance or intermittent errors. While blackouts like this are not sustainable in the long term, they’ve happened more than once for Google as of late. YouTube faced downtime in October, for instance, while Google’s general administrations failed in November because of a steering issue.
Even though the issue was resolved it might cause a four hours downtime for companies who choose GCP as a part of their IT infrastructure and depend on one service for their ability to operate. A disaster can occur not only in case of even most popular platform like Google Cloud outages but by other internal and external reasons: application failure, human error, power outage, environment, theft, fire, impact of virus attacks, etc. Average loss within one hour of an outage can be up to a few million.
