Google services suffered a massive outage today across the globe as YouTube, Gmail, Google Assistant, and Google Docs were suddenly inaccessible. Aside from personal inconveniences, the crash caught short numerous businesses who have come to depend on Google’s cloud-based services for productivity.
The problem seemed to start sometime after 3 a.m. Pacific. By 4:30 a.m., some services began to reappear, but they remained only intermittently available. The status page for Google services seemed to indicate the virtually every service worldwide had been impacted.
Google is down. How do CEO’s do our job now?
