Google Drive Service Disruption: Microsoft Giggling As Enterprise Gets Scroogled
Microsoft must be smiling this morning, as Google continues to Scroogle the users of their Google Drive service, which competes directly against Microsoft SkyDrive and Office 365 services.
Google Drive was having some technical difficulties on Monday morning, when many of the cloud storage service’s millions of users were having difficulty accessing their web storage and documents.
Google first acknowledged the problem at 10:17 a.m. Monday morning, with an update to their App status page.
“We're investigating reports of an issue with Google Drive. We will provide more information shortly,” the page read.
An hour later, Google had both more and less to say about the situation, in an update posted at 11:10 a.m.
“We're aware of a problem with Google Drive affecting a significant subset of users,” Google posted. “The affected users are unable to access Google Drive. We will provide an update by 3/18/13 12:10 PM detailing when we expect to resolve the problem. Please note that this resolution time is an estimate and may change.”
Both updates were marked by an orange indicator, which indicates a “Service disruption.” The problem appears to not be serious enough to warrant the full-on red alert of a “Service outage,” which could be comforting.
Just as a personal anecdote, I’m writing this article write now on Google Drive, so the disruption appears not to be affecting me right now, though there were some strange things afoot on Google Drive earlier this morning, with warning tags about not being able to connect to the server.
According to the App Status Dashboard, Google Drive appears to be the only one of Google’s web service apps that is facing any problems or disruptions this morning.
Complaints on Twitter have been reportedly coming in about sluggishness in other apps like Gmail, or the Google Reader app, whose death notice threw the Internet into a fury last week.
