Finally, at 9:30 pm Microsoft reported that they had taken corrective actions to mitigate the impact associated with EX223053 and that service had been restored.


The Importance of Office 365 Monitoring

In a cloud-world, outages are bound to happen. While Microsoft is responsible for restoring service during outages, IT needs to take ownership of their environment and user experience. It is crucial to have greater visibility into business impacts during a service outage the moment it happens.
