Google restored UniSuper's account from backup and pledged not to let a similar incident happen. Google said the incident has never happened before on a cloud service, but the potential for glitches and disruptions has businesses and government organizations concerned about moving their data to other cloud services. cloud service provider.

Google Cloud said that, as of this year, the company had about 60% of the world's top 1,000 companies and 90% of innovative artificial intelligence (AI) startups as customers. And nearly half a million companies globally use Google Cloud as a “platform as a service” (PaaS) or customer-facing tool, including Volkswagen and Royal Bank of Canada.

The US government and intelligence community are also gradually moving towards using cloud services to store data. The US National Security Agency (NSA) has signed a $10 billion deal with Amazon to transfer its intelligence surveillance data to the company's cloud.

UniSuper's incident is a wake-up call for organizations and individuals using cloud services. Data protection needs to be given due attention to avoid possible unfortunate consequences.
