After the recent Gmail outage, Google has launched the Google Apps Status Dashboard which offers a quick look at the health of popular Google services like Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Talk, Google Docs, Google Sites and Google Video for business. Administrators of Google Apps can also view the availability of the administrative control panel. An RSS feed for the Status Dashboard is on the pipeline.
It’s a good move by Google to address the chaos that arises every time a Google service goes down. The only thing to worry about now is what happens when the dashboard goes down? Just a thought.
