This week‘s topic
When the cloud disappears, what should you do?
In this week’s podcast, Steve Goodman and Paul Robichaux catch up for a post-Microsoft Ignite chat and catch up to talk about the most embarrassing incidents (for Microsoft) this week:
With several service outages, including a major Azure Active Directory issue, we discuss the issues in more detail and go beyond the Microsoft Azure service status and Microsoft 365 service status incident reports and discuss how the services are built for reliance and what can go wrong, and what’s gone wrong in the past.
We also discuss in depth whether you are safer running on-premises and whether the additional control you have available is worthwhile – and compare the way that Microsoft services in the cloud are engineered to other services – and whether what Microsoft do is good enough.
Take a listen to this week’s show below to listen to Paul and Steve’s expert take and hear our share of war stories from previous outages both on-premises and otherwise.
Steve is a Microsoft MVP for Office Servers and Services. He enjoys getting hands-on, solving some of the more complex problems associated with migrating to the cloud or to newer versions of Exchange Server.
