About Those Cloud Services?

April 3, 2020

Okay, Amazon can’t deliver. Microsoft can’t scale. Now Google Cloud Engine just falls over. What were the techno experts saying about those cloud services?

Navigate to to “Google Cloud Engine Outage Caused by Large Backlog of Queued Mutations.” The article reports:

A 14-hour Google cloud platform outage that we missed in the shadow of last week’s G Suite outage was caused by a failure to scale, an internal investigation has shown.

But why?

The outage was caused by a lack of memory in the company’s cache servers…

To simplify. Google’s smart scaling failed. Does this mean that Google and Microsoft are more alike than different? If Amazon can’t deliver, does this mean Google cannot deliver?

About those cloud services powering decision making? Well, sort of.
