Microsoft Cloud Services Had 5 Hour Outage [UPDATE 2]

,----[ Quote ]
| On the heels of my story about the Microsoft 
| (MSFT) TechNet registration servers being down 
| for five days, I received an email from a 
| reader claiming that Microsoft Online Service, 
| the current name for its cloud offerings, had 
| a five hour outage. According to the tip, that 
| included the hosted Exchange email service. 
| This is clearly not the sort of thing 
| corporations want to hear when considering who 
| to trust going forward in cloud computing.


Microsoft's cloud is hiccuping. Has anyone even noticed?

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoftâs cloud has been hiccuping all week, 
| cutting North American customers off from 
| access to the services included in its 
| Business Productivity Online Suite, which 
| includes Exchange Online, SharePoint Online 
| and Office Live Meeting.



The people's cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| John Suffolk's (the Cabinet Office CIO) generously replied to my questions
| posed in last week's blog. G-Cloud is 'go' and it will be a Private Cloud,
| based on Open Standards and will use a mix of proprietary and (free?) open
| source software. All I reckon is left it to see whether it's stitched
| together by Microsoft's technology or Red Hat's.
| [...]
| Our great Free, Open Source guru Richard Stallman dislikes the Cloud concept.
| He sees it as a way to hand over your freedom to proprietarists and to get
| locked into someone else's computing paradigm. Many including this author
| agree with him. Below though is a manifesto for a 'good' cloud that would
| benefit the businesses and citizens of the UK without loss of rights and
| freedoms.
