You may have noticed that nice “page can not be displayed” message that has shown up on your browser while trying to access many of Microsoft’s web services tonight. Well, users have taken to twitter complaining of the issue and Microsoft has quickly responded stating “We’re aware of an outage impacting some of our properties. We are actively working to resolve this issue & seeing some returning now.” Not sure what they mean by that yet as all of their properties are down currently, but there is probably a internet routing issue at the datacenter that I am sure they are working as quickly as possible to resolve.
Microsoft recently discounted Office 365 users bills by 25% after a three hour service outage on August 17; Office 365 worldwide on June 28. Office 365 provides Office 2010, Exchange, SharePoint and Lync all Online in a cloud-based service. The service is a full browser-based solution that incorporates webmail, collaboration and document management.
Update: Seems to be back up in our browser but phone still unable to grab emails.
