Microsoft’s Windows Azure has been down for 7 hours

Posted by jps

Windows Azure service management system has been down for about seven hours worldwide. Some services were down as we can see on the Microsoft Azure dashboard. In facts, some hosted services could be hit by capacity problems.

TheRegister reports this issue on his website and Microsoft said:

We are experiencing an issue with Windows Azure service management. Customers will not be able to carry out service management operations. We have started a gradual rollout of the hotfix in North Central US sub-region. As we proceed through the rollout, we will progressively enable service management back for customers. Further updates will be published to keep you apprised of the situation. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes our customers.
