CloudStore der britischen Regierung ebenfalls vom Windows Azure Ausfall betroffen

Der erst kürzlich veröffentlichte CloudStore (GCloud) der britischen Regierung, mit der die öffentlichen Verwaltungen Großbritanniens zukünftig ihre Anwendungen beziehen sollen, war auf Grund des Windows Azure Ausfalls vor zwei Tagen, ebenfalls für mehrere Stunden offline.

Über den offiziellen GCloud Twitter Account @G_Cloud_UK, informierte die Regierung um 12:11 Uhr britischer Zeit, über den Ausfall: “Power outage on microsoft azure means #cloudstore is temporarily unavailable. Patch being applied so will update when normal service resumed.”.

In einem weiteren Tweet, ca. 3 Stunden später, kam dann die Meldung, dass der CloudStore durch Microsoft auf eine andere Azure Umgebung umgezogen wurde: “Microsoft are moving us to a different azure install and are confident we’ll be up and running again by 4pm.”
