Microsoft Azure: explanation of outage on 5/2

(Praveen Seshadri (AppSheet)) #1

FYI, Microsoft has provided an explanation of the outage caused a few days ago.

It appears that while they were able to fix the core problem within a few minutes, the fact that DNS information is cached widely caused their customers to have problems for hours afterward.

I appreciate their thoroughness in publishing a post-mortem of the root cause of the problem.
