(All Times US/Pacific)

Incident Start: 5 May 2023 12:02

Incident End: 5 May 2023 12:58

Duration: 56 minutes

Affected Services and Features:

Gmail, Google Cloud Networking

Regions/Zones: Multi Region Europe


Multiple Google services, including GCP and Workspace, experienced an outage for a duration of up to 56 minutes in and around Spain/Morocco. From preliminary analysis, the root cause of the issue was a Google initiated network routing change at the edge of our network there. The issue was mitigated at 12:58 by removing the problematic routers from service, forcing traffic to use other paths.

Customer Impact:

  • Google Cloud Networking experienced a full outage for all internet service providers (ISPs) connected to two peering routers in Madrid, Spain.
  • All GCP services were unavailable for users reaching GCP from impacted ISP(s) until mitigation in and around Spain/Morocco.
  • Some Gmail customers had delivery delays and availability issues during the outage in Spain.

If your service or application was affected, we apologize — this is not the level of quality and reliability we strive to offer you, and we have taken and are taking immediate steps to improve the platform’s performance and availability.
