Azure down

Posted on 16 March 2009 by Andreas Vamvatsikos

Microsoft’s Windows Azure “cloud” platform, still in pre-beta, had its first crash this past weekend. Azure stayed offline for almost 22 hours leaving a large number of deployments offline, and applications unreachable in “stopped” or “initializing” states.

It is not yet clear what caused the outage but in his post in the MSDN forums, Azure team member Steve Marx said he expected a root cause analysis would be conducted to “understand exactly what went wrong and what we need to do to ensure it doesn’t happen again. Once we have that sorted out, I’ll put together a summary.”

Amazon Web Services had a similar insident earlier this year.
