40 minute outage in North Europe? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have 2 Cloud Services running in North Europe.

    Last night, both services went down for 40 minutes.

    The Azure Status dashboard reported no problems and I couldn't find any mention of problems online or on Twitter.

    I asked other Developers whose services are also in North Europe and their Services were fine.

    I narrowed it down to SQL Azure connection errors.

    I could log into our Servers but not connect to any of our databases.

    Could anyone shed some light on the outage for me?

  • Hi,

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    As per the dashboard, I see that we had Websites - North Europe - Partial Service Interruption

    From 16:46 to 17:40 UTC on 4 December, 2014 a subset of customers using Websites in North Europe may have experienced latency and/or 503 errors when attempting to access websites hosted in North Europe. This incident has now been mitigated.

    That might have been the cause, however if you would like a deeper understanding as to what happened I would request you to open a Technical Support Ticket as we would require your Azure details.
