If you use Google’s Blogger platform, you probably learned the hard way that the service experienced unscheduled downtime (read: CRASH) for about 90 minutes yesterday morning. The crash was widespread, impacting users around the world.
There is no official word on what cause the blip, but the crash comes on the heels of last month’s Gmail and Google News outage.
This is not good news for the search engine giant as they continue to take steps towards an enterprise market via Google apps. Google, a proponent of cloud-computing, might need to rethink their strategy.
“Users were unable to access their Blogger accounts…and some people had trouble viewing others’ blogs. We worked quickly to address and fix the issue, and we apologize for any inconvenience to our users,” said a Google spokesperson.
