Google's Blogger faces performance problems

Google's Blogger is facing performance problems that slow the service down, and hopes additional machines and electricity will resolve the issues.

Google is working to address performance problems that slow down its popular Blogger service.

Google is both adding new hardware and addressing an electricity-availability issue in order to improve performance, wrote Biz Stone, a Blogger official in an entry posted Thursday in the official Blogger team blog called Blogger Buzz (http://buzz.blogger.com).

"Performance is a huge priority for us and we're adding a bunch of new machines right now to speed things up," Stone wrote. "New machines are not an issue because here at Google we can add them quite smoothly as needed. The real issue is power -- actual electricity, if you can believe it. So now we're adding more power in addition to more machines."

Stone posted his entry after receiving an e-mail from a Blogger user who complained about "slowness issues" with the free service. It turns out that the performance problems not only affect regular Blogger users but also Blogger team members, Stone wrote.

"We use Blogger for this blog and many of the people on our team use Blogger for their own, personal blogs. We don't have a super-special employee server that gives us preference over anyone else so we are just as frustrated with slowness and performance problems," Stone wrote. "That being said, we are just as eager as you to make this fix so things will be fast again."

Google didn't immediately respond to a call seeking comment about this issue.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
