Microsoft recovers cloud services following network outage

Microsoft Corporation today said it had recovered all of its cloud services after a networking outage took down its cloud platform Azure along with services such as Teams and Outlook used by millions around the globe.
Azure's status page showed services were impacted in the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa. Only services in China and its platform for governments were not hit.
By late morning Azure said most customers should have seen services resume after a full recovery of the Microsoft Wide Area Network.
An outage of Azure, which has 15 million corporate customers and more than 500 million active users, according to Microsoft data, can impact multiple services and create a domino effect as almost all of the world's largest companies use the platform.
Businesses have become increasingly dependent on online platforms after the COVID-19 pandemic caused a shift to more employees working remotely.
