I was wondering when we would see the first stories about data center 
and IXP issues in Europe due to the heat wave.

According to Google Cloud's service health page, one of its London 
buildings hosting cloud services for one of its Western Europe regions 
experienced a "cooling related failure" starting Tuesday morning. The 
company powered down services in part of that region to fix the issue.

Meanwhile, Oracle is having similar issues. Its service health page said 
it's working to repair the cooling system in its London data center and 
has powered down some of its services to "to prevent uncontrolled hardware 
failures." Oracle said it expects service to be restored today.
