Google Apps Service Disruption, 502 Error

by / Monday, 18 March 2013 / Published in Of Interest

Google Drive is experiencing a service disruption for a few hours already.  Accessing Google Docs is either slow or results in a 502 error:

google apps down

Google itself says on their Public Status Dashboard:

We’re aware of a problem with Google Drive affecting a significant subset of users. The affected users are unable to access Google Drive. We will provide an update by 3/18/13 5:10 PM detailing when we expect to resolve the problem. Please note that this resolution time is an estimate and may change.
Our AlertFox Service is – of course – not affected by this. However we are using Google Docs internally and thus use AlertFox to monitor its Status/SLA. Time for some of us here for a tea break…Update: The service is restored. The overall downtime was 2.5 hours.
