Google suffers yet another outage

Blogger service goes down for over an hour.

Web giant Google has suffered yet another outage on one of its most popular services – this time the Blogger blog publishing platform.

According to brief messages on the Blogger status site and the Blogger Help Forum, the service went down for around 90 minutes, between 7.30 and 9am BST, so it is unlikely to have affected many users.

A simple message posted on the Blogger status site at 1.07 PDT (9.07 BST) reads: “Blogger was unavailable for most users for over an hour. Service has now been restored.”

Millions of individuals and businesses use the platform to manage and publish their blogs, and the outage will be yet another embarrassment to Google, which has been trying to convince users of the stability of its cloud-based service delivery system.

Google will be hoping outages such as this remain few and far between, as it seeks to push into the enterprise market with its Google Apps online applications offerings.

Pest control firm Rentokil recently announced it will roll out the service to its 35,000 employees by next year, while Portsmouth university is set to do the same to its 30,000 students.

Large scale outages, however infrequent, continue to plague the firm though, the most recent coming in September when Gmail users were unable to access the webmail service for over 90 minutes.
