Google Appologizes For Slugish Service

"We're very sorry that it happened, and you can be sure that we'll be working even harder to make sure that a similar problem won't happen again," said Urs Hoelzle, Google's senior vice president of operations in response to an interruption in service or poor performance on the companies sites for millions of users. "An error in one of our systems caused us to direct some of our traffic through Asia," Hoelzle added.

The incident has cast doubt by some about the viability of cloud computing. "Maybe companies that are thinking about a cloud strategy - such as Google Apps - need to look into backup clouds" said Sam Diaz, a senior editor at technology news site ZDNet.
