Google Cloud said that there was a cooling-related failure in one of its buildings
The heat waves in the UK have resulted in cooling-related outages at the Google Cloud and Oracle servers, leaving the customers perplexed as they have never experienced such outages earlier. Google Cloud said that there was a cooling-related failure in one of its buildings in the UK-based data centers, which has now been resolved. The outages caused several connectivity issues for customers who use Oracle and Google Cloud services to host their websites. This caused a partial failure of capacity in that zone, leading to VM (virtual machine) terminations and a loss of machines for a small set of customers. Customers can launch virtual machines (VMs) in all zones of Europe-west.
Oracle has a similar message for customers, citing "unseasonal temperatures" in the UK as the cause of the outage. The UK on Tuesday officially reached 40 degrees Celsius, something the Met Office said was "virtually impossible" in an undisrupted climate. The UK saw its hottest-ever recorded temperature of 40.3 degrees Celsius in Coningsby in Lincolnshire, reports the BBC. Over 34 locations exceeded the UK's previous temperature record of 38.7 degrees Celsius in 2019, according to the Met Office. The London Fire Brigade declared a major incident after a number of fires broke out in and around the capital.
