Why would a business so dependent on their website (and already using Azure) not take advantage of Azure's ability to prevent prolonged outages?

There were a lot of humorous tweets to read through. Which I'm sure many of you noticed.

maybe you should spend some time at the doctor's office to identify why you have to poop so much.

Very interested in this answer as well. I definitely think that leveraging some multi zone architecture would have mitigated this incident. I'm certain they are using scale-able infrastructure to meet high demand.

Reading through https://twitter.com/AzureSupport, there were many businesses impacted. Lighting struck the datacenter in San Antonio which caused the AC units, which provide cooling to servers, to go out. Servers were shut down for protection.

One user that was responsible for 100 nursing homes posted they had to manually call doctors.A radiologist couldn't look at the images for here patients. Lots of users on pins and needles. The twitter feed is worth a read.

Quality headline: "It's getting hot in here, so shut down all your cores"

It affected us at work as well. I had a new employee start yesterday and we couldn't access any of our online training modules so she pretty much got paid to stare at a wall all day.

I find it suspicious that this happened coming out of a long weekend. Long weekends are typically used by data centers to perform regular maintenance and testing of things like fire suppression equipment, back up power, etc.
One of the reasons I got out of IT ops was because I was tired of working like a NASCAR pit crewman every MLK, Memorial Day and Labor Day weekend.

Yesterday was quite schaudenfreudilicious thinking about everyone scrambling and finger pointing at each other:

"What's taking network so long?!"
"We're waiting for skilled trades to finish!"
"Skilled trades finished 90 minutes ago."
"They why does this rack not have any power?!"
Twenty minutes later, skilled trades rep finally tracked down outside having a smoke. Visibly irritated, he shows up to investigate.
"Because you plugged your crash cart into the wrong circuit, dumb***."
