Office 365 Monitoring: Microsoft 365 Services Outage March 2, 2021
On March 2, 2021 at ~3:00 pm UTC, Microsoft reported an issue that was preventing users in Brazil from accessing Microsoft 365 services.
Shortly after, at ~5:00 pm UTC, Microsoft reported that user impact was no longer occurring and they would continue to monitor the service health and availability to ensure the problem wouldn't happen again.
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.
