... Or should we call it parts two, three and four? In March of this year, the Google Drive storage service suffered three outages in a single week. Primary issues, which began on March 18, involved isolated software glitches that subsequently resulted in larger problems. As much as one-third of the customer base was impacted, leading to a virtual hue-and-cry across the Internet. On March 19, there was a two-hour outage, followed by an even lengthier loss of service on March 20. Google was pretty tight-lipped about the sources of the three outages, but users say the service has been relatively stable in recent weeks.
