More Storms in the Cloud: Google Docs Suffers Downtime

flickrOne of the issues with Cloud Computing is when things go down and users don’t have a backup in place. This is especially true with business critical docs such as word processing documents and spreadsheets. The Register is reporting that Google Docs and Spreadsheets has suffered some down-time today, right smack dab in the middle of the business day. Ouch!

Google Docs and Spreadsheets says to try back in 30 seconds, but I’m sure it’s customers who rely upon this utility computing facility are wishing they had local copies of the documents handy.
