July 19 (Reuters) – A Google Cloud data center in London faced an outage on Tuesday, according to an update on Alphabet Inc’s (GOOGL.O) unit status page, as temperatures in the Kingdom United reached an all-time high.

Google Cloud said it was a “cooling-related” failure in one of the buildings and started at 1:13 p.m. ET (6:13 p.m. BST).

A “small group” of customers are impacted, according to the update on the status page. Part of the problem still persists. (https://bit.ly/3OdAFig)
