Internet traffic falls 40 percent as Google goes down for 5 minutes

It doesn't happen a lot that a major Internet company faces a total downtime, but that's what happened yesterday to every single of Google's servers for between one and five minutes. During the downtime, Internet traffic reportedly collapsed by a whopping 40 percent. It's unknown what caused the outage.
The Google outage began at 4:37 Pacific Time and, by most estimates, lasted anywhere from one to five minutes. During that brief period countless service under the Google umbrella were unavailable. This would include, of course, things like YouTube, Gmail, Google Drive and even the Google search engine, among many others.

Currently, there's no explanation for what happened to bring Google down, but the consequences of its collapse, even temporary, are somewhat startling when you consider the sheer breadth of it and the possibility of it someday happening again. After all, yesterday's outage was, by most accounts, only a few minutes long. What would happen if it were an hour? Or a day?
