Gmail service disrupted in new Google mishap


San Francisco

Google’s cloud-hosted email service suffered a “significant” disruption Tuesday, just a day after it went down during a massive outage of the internet giant’s platform. Google said on a status dashboard that it had Gmail operations back in order shortly before 0000 GMT, about two and a half hours after people started complaining of problems. “We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and continued support,” Google said in the status dashboard notice. “Please rest assured that system reliability is a top priority at Google, and we are making continuous improvements to make our systems better.” Google did not disclose the number of users affected or the precise cause of the trouble.—AFP
