Randy Mancini 11 Jul 19

(Reuters) – A Google Cloud data center in London faced an outage on Tuesday, according to an update on the Alphabet Inc unit’s status page, as temperature in the UK soared to a record high.

Google Cloud said it was a “cooling related” failure at one of the buildings and began at 1:13 pm ET (6:13 pm BST).

A “small set” of customers are impacted, according to the update on the status page. A part of the issue still persists. (https://bit.ly/3OdAFig)

Britain recorded its hottest day ever on Tuesday, with the temperature exceeding 40C (104F) as a heatwave gripping Europe intensified, forcing train tracks to buckle and fuelling a spate of fires across London.
