Submission + - Confirmed Gmail / Google App outage

mbone writes: Earlier today there was a confirmed Google outage which got a lot of attention from network operators. From a post to NANOG after everything calmed down :

Google ack'da maintenance on their core network did not go as planned-Forced traffic to one peer link that was unable to handle all the traffic. Maintenance has been rolled back. Issue has been restored

This is exactly what makes me nervous about cloud computing and data storage. It's bad enough when I screw up a config and it takes down my mail, but what about when it happens to the entire globe at once ?
