Users of Google’s popular Gmail email accounts experienced some down time today starting around 9:30 GMT. Gmailers may be disappointed, since one of the great features of Gmail was the nearly 100% uptime.
“If you’ve tried to access your Gmail account today, you are probably aware by now that we’re having some problems. Shortly after 10 9:30am GMT our monitoring systems alerted us that Gmail consumer and businesses accounts worldwide could not get access to their email.
We’re working very hard to solve the problem and we’re really sorry for the inconvenience.”
Many businesses that have made the switch to Gmail’s webmail may have gotten a wake up call that even applications available on the cloud are susceptible to downtime.
