Google and Oracle data centers were shut down due to the heat wave

The current heat wave is causing disruption to Google Cloud and Oracle’s UK data centres. Cooling systems in data centers are unable to cope with the sharp rise in temperature, leading to service failure.

Yesterday, temperatures of over 40 degrees Celsius were recorded in the UK. Outdoor temperatures have led to the failure of cooling systems in Google Cloud and Oracle data centers. To prevent further damage, both companies had to suspend some services due to disruptions.

The cold breaks

Google Cloud declared Cooling issues in one of the Europe West 2 cloud zone data center buildings led to the failure of Compute Engine, Persistent Disk and Autoscaling. Many virtual machines are stopped. This led to the loss of several machines to a certain group of customers, the technology company notes.

Many services have been fixed, but some persistent disk volumes may still have IO errors. Customers experiencing issues with this are asked to contact Google Cloud.

Oracle is also in trouble

Also Oracle flagged problems at its data centers In the United Kingdom. A cooling system failure occurred in the UK South (London) data center. These cooling issues caused failures in network infrastructure and services such as cloud infrastructure modules, infrastructure compute, infrastructure object storage and consolidation.

Oracle also immediately began restoring services. Services are now fully online. Oracle is currently working to fix the operating temperature of various servers and address the impact of the service outage.
