The search giant wakes up to service disruptions for some users of its most popular cloud services.

Several of search giant Google's (GOOGL -0.16%) most popular cloud services are experiencing service disruptions this morning. On the company's apps status page, Google shows Mail, Drive, Documents, Spreadsheets, and Presentations all facing disruptions. Google's admin control panel is seeing a total outage.

Not all users are affected, but there are reports of many users not having full access to various Google services. Rival Apple has sees some of its iCloud services run into hiccups from time to time, so Google isn't alone in this regard. iMessage saw an outage last week, but that's less inconvenient since messages fall back to SMS. Apple also has a system status page to monitor its services.

Some of Google's services like Calendar and Talk are unaffected.
