On the morning of February 27th 2023 Google Cloud started to suffer one of their worst outages in recent memory. Cloud Developer Tools, Apigee, Google Cloud Networking, Container Registry - and many more - were affected.

Unlike previous outages, this one is global in nature. From Toronto to Taiwan, most global locations experienced difficulties, across these services:

  • Google BigQuery
  • Apigee
  • Cloud Developer Tools
  • Cloud Firestore, Google Compute Engine
  • Google Cloud Storage
  • Google Cloud Networking
  • Identity and Access Management
  • Google Cloud Pub/Sub
  • Cloud Build
  • Container Registry

Readers of Hacker News also reported Gmail was down for a time. The ongoing incident and status of affected services is available here.
