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.
