Google servers goes down for 5 min, traffic falls by 40%:


Saturday morning was something harassing for some regular die-hard google users in  India. Reports confirmed that Google servers were down for 5 minutes. The busy internet traffic stood still for around 5 minutes on Saturday morning. All google services including Gmail, Drive, Maps and chat suffered a setback and stopped working

They were some confirmations from the user side that some of their apps malfunctioned and showed error while accessing it.

The application dashboard for Gmail displayed following message for users:

‘We’re aware of a problem with Gmail affecting a significant subset of users. The affected users are able to access Gmail, but are seeing error messages and/or other unexpected behavior. ‘ 

Other apps also showed similar messages when accessed. 

According to some web-analysts like GoSquared, the internet traffic was hit by 40% as a lot of users relied on such an internet giant.

After that Google rollbacked to the normal state, but some other leading giants like yahoo! And Bing couldn’t capitalize such an opportunity.

We are yet to hear something from the Google itself.
