This is the Internet Report, where we uncover what’s working and what’s breaking on the Internet—and why. On this week’s episode, we cover a recent move by the government of India to ban many Chinese-owned applications, including TikTok, which reportedly has more than 600 million downloads in India. We also talk through a service disruption at Google Cloud Platform on June 29th that affected multiple of its availability zones within a single region, and we briefly cover other outages at Slack and Comcast, too. Google shared their Incident Report of this event following the recording of this week’s episode, so you should check that out for the latest info. After our review of this week’s highlights, I sat down with Atif Khan, CTO of Alkira and former co-founder of Viptela to talk enterprise cloud strategy.
