Microsoft Azure total outage for secured storage

rtfa-troll (1340807) writes "There has been worldwide (all locations) total outage of storage in Microsoft's Azure cloud. Apparently "Microsoft unwittingly let an online security certificate expire Friday, triggering a worldwide outage in an online service that stores data for a wide range of business customers." according to the San Francisco Chronicle (also Yahoo and the Register). Perhaps too much time has been spent sucking up to storage vendros and not enough looking after the customers? This comes directly after a week long outage of one of Microsoft's SQL server components in Azure. This is not the first time that we have discussed major outages on Azure and probably won't be the last. It's certainly also not the first time that we have discussed Microsoft cloud systems making user's data unavailable."

12 hours in no /. article on global Azure outage (1)

On the /. I subscribed to over a decade ago "major Microsoft service down globally" was the sort of thing that would be on the front page in mere minutes of the fact, not the coverage: beating coverage of every other service. Now /. can't beat reddit [reddit.com] , theregister [theregister.co.uk] , cnn [cnn.com] or even known Microsoft puff rag ZDnet [zdnet.com] .

Now not even can /. not beat these to the coverage, it ignores all of this coverage for half a day.

This isn't the ride I signed up for. Maybe the new management has some editorial influence that changes why I come here. This is "News for nerds" and it's also "stuff that matters". If /. can't at least fit this in in half a day it's probably not what I'm looking for in a geek blog any more.
