Google says it shut down a key data center to save it from London’s heatwave

Google has revealed more information on what happened when it was forced to shut down one of its London data centers on the UK’s hottest day of the year so far.

The failure of zone “europe-west2-a” last month was, according to Google, down to not maintaining a safe operating temperature due to a simultaneous failure of multiple, redundant cooling systems combined with the “extraordinarily high” outside temperatures.
