Google suffered a rare but major outage this morning

Published by Business Insider on Thu, 12 Mar 2015


Google appears to be suffering service issues today.Functions such as Google search and Gmail stopped working for people in countries including the UK, Netherlands, Iceland, France, and India. For some, Google services went down altogether, while others suffered intermittent outages. The episode was brief.Lots of people are reported on Twitter that they experienced issues.Isitdownrightnow.com also appeared to confirm the issue:Google declined to comment after Business Insider reached the company by phone. We tried to reach them by Gmail, but that service was down at the time, too.The company did, however, direct us to its Apps Status Dashboard, which stated that none of its services were experiencing issues on Thursday morning.It is an extremely rare occurrence for Google to go down like this. And annoying: It has become second nature to use Google as a primary search function, and many business email accounts run on Gmail. For thousands ' possibly millions ' of people this morning, they were faced with the task of trying to navigate the web without Google. It's surprisingly difficult!Google outages can also be incredibly disruptive even when they are short-lived, like this one. Google's Doubleclick ad server went down for an hour in November and it probably cost publishers who use the service millions of dollars.By coincidence, on Wednesday Apple suffered a huge outage that brought its online store iTunes, the App Store, and other services online for a couple of hours.Join the conversation about this storyNOW WATCH: 14 things you didn't know your iPhone headphones could do
