Earlier this month, Google Cloud experienced one of its biggest blunders ever when UniSuper, a $135 billion Australian pension fund, had its Google Cloud account wiped out due to some kind of mistake on Google’s end. During the initial deployment of a Google Cloud VMware Engine Private Cloud for the customer using an internal tool, there was an inadvertent misconfiguration of the GCVE service by Google operators due to leaving a parameter blank. Google says, “No customer notification was sent because the deletion was triggered as a result of a parameter being left blank by Google operators using the internal tool, and not due to a customer deletion request. Any customer-initiated deletion would have been preceded by a notification to the customer.”
