Google says it closed a major data center to save it from the London heatwave

Google has revealed more details about what happened when it had to close one of its London data centers on the UK’s hottest day of the year yet.

The “europe-west2-a” zone outage last month, according to Google, was due to failure to maintain a safe operating temperature due to the simultaneous failure of multiple, redundant cooling systems coupled with the “extremely high” outdoor temperatures.
