Google Ran out of Disk space, Woow! This is quiet unbelieveble but it really happened!
Google plus ,google’s latest social networking site which is still running on a invite-only basis ran out of disk space for the service which keeps track of user notifications
According to Google they didnt expect such huge response so soon
Remember as we said before google plus still on invite only basis or as said by Mr. Gundotra its on field trial , it will be intresting to see facebook vs google plus when it becomes open to all
Here is the exact quote from Vic Gundotra, Senior Vice President Engineering, google social posted on his Google plus profile
Please accept our apologies for the spam we caused this afternoon.
For about 80 minutes we ran out of disk space on the service that keeps track of notifications. Hence our system continued to try sending notifications. Over, and over again. Yikes.
We didn’t expect to hit these high thresholds so quickly, but we should have.
Thank you for helping us during this field trial, and once again, we are very sorry for the spam.
