As the world continues its public cloud journey, more milestones arise. As this case is still being actively discussed, the fun continues.
Microsoft Azure – one of the largest public cloud platform had experienced a major widespread outage today. Microsoft Azure that over the past few years grew to a “true enterprise” cloud vendor was down for more than two hours. The outage affected multiple regions and multiple services, including Microsoft’s own web services, Windows Store, Xbox Live and more.
Are you affected, concerned or still considering public cloud? Apparently, the old rule of not putting all your eggs in one basket works here, even if this basket is so huge, reliable and “guaranteed” as Microsoft Azure. Another reason we are right when we recommend our clients to consider hybrid cloud or spreading services across several public clouds.
