Azure is on fire, your DNS is terrified
Many services affected
Microsoft Azure DNS suffered a wobble Thursday afternoon UK-time, taking down a number of services.
According to a status update on Microsoft's site, the issues began around lunchtime.
Customers using Azure DNS in multiple regions experienced difficulties connecting to their goodies at the moment due to the mysterious issues affecting Microsoft's cloud computing and infrastructure platform.
Among the services affected were SQL Database, App Service/Web Apps, API Management, Service Bus and Visual Studio Team services.
Azure proudly advertises itself as a global network of name servers using Anycast routing to provide "outstanding performance and availability."
Azure DNS, which currently is still in preview, and is supported through community forums, allows customers to host their DNS domain in Azure, so they can manage their DNS records using the same credentials, billing and support contract as their other Azure services.®
