Unreliable Nature of Cloud Computing –

Why did Gmail Stumble ??


Google’s email service GMAIL seems to have stumbled again within weeks. As reported earlier, this time it happened on Thursday, September 24, a little more than three weeks after Google’s email product went down for hours – stranding businesses individuals who rely on its service.

Experts said this outage once again brought to fourth the unreliable nature of cloud computing. This is especially scary for corporate accounts which are starting to reply more and more on cloud computing for their core business needs. One wonders in such cases, if we are really ready for the cloud yet ?

Thursday’s problems began when users stopped being able to access their contacts, blocking them from their contact manager, the chat application and auto – filling of email addresses.

Gmail was unavailable on some mobile browsers, and some folders would not open. Those who bypass Gmail’s web interface by using IMAP protocol to sync with external mail clients such as Outlook were unaffected (this was the case earlier).

    There is more than one cloud. Don’t be fooled by the connotations of the term. There are many clouds, hosted by many people. Just because gmail went down doesn’t mean all cloud computing is un-reliable. Just gmail.
