The Microsoft outage aftermath, part one
Fallout: On the Office 365 and Outlook.com front, user forums and social media lit up with irritated customers' complaints. And on the Bing side, both people who actually use Bing were probably pretty upset.
Fix: The main outage, according to Microsoft, was the result of "routine maintenance" gone awry. More specifically, the company said a "scheduled network configuration change" was the "root cause of the issue," and "necessary repair steps" were able to be "successfully implemented and validated" in order for the "impact" to be "mitigated."
Whew. Conversational speakers those engineers are not.
