Microsoft Experiences Cloud Failure with MSDN

An anonymous reader writes "Around Sept. 9th, the folks at Microsoft decided to switch off of the (working) MSDN subscription download manager to their new Azure Cloud solution leaving many developers unable to access their benefits. Mind you, these subscriptions are expensive costing in the neighborhood of $2600/yr. per developer. Better yet, it appears that the great folks in Redmond failed to provide for a plan 'B' despite a similar failure in July!
All we have been hearing is apologies, requests for screen shots and trace logs (sure.. you can post my internal network topology for all to see), and "we are working on it". It certainly doesn't fill one with confidence that Microsoft can't figure out the problem with their own solution.

And no, you can't just get a disc mailed out by calling support.
