Microsoft hit by another outage

Written by Nick Farell

That old cloud reliability
Microsoft’s cloud based future keeps looking shaky every time there is an outage. The technology is based on an assurance that companies can't lose data and can access it on demand.

However this morning Redmond was again in the embarrassing position of having to put its hand up to another outage. Microsoft says email services to most customers using Windows Live Hotmail and Messenger have been restored following a worldwide outage.

The software company said services are back, but warned customers could still have problems logging on to their email accounts as the changes made to the system made their way through the network, through its Windows Live blog. Microsoft’s cloud-based software Office 365 was also affected by the outage.

The speculation is that Microsoft was caught in a power blackout that hit San Diego, although we would have thought it would have had some backup servers.

That company is spreading themselves too thin.I mean come on, windows,xbox,zu ne,bla bla.the cloud is suppose to be almost unsinkable if done right. where are the redundancy to prevent these services from going down, and when clouds go down it's called rain, so i guess with Microsoft cloud computing you can at least be in for some stormy weather.
Going down means millions of people going down,this could be something critical like a hospital unable to get information about a patient about to be operated on or as simple as little jimmy can't access his porn collection.this has to have 100 percent uptime before people take it serious.or hearing about the cloud would just make people thinking about thunderstorms and getting rained on.my cloud is hd 6870 and phenom 2 965 8gigs ddr3 powered

I at least understood your point and I agree with you. Keep posting. Here's an idea; with your hardware you could run CentOS and provide your own cloud services.
