Office 365 Monitoring: Microsoft 365 Services Outage June 15, 2020
On Monday June 15 at ~12:00am UTC, Microsoft reported a Microsoft 365 services outage.
Microsoft 365 status reported that some users may be experiencing issues when attempting to access Microsoft 365 services in the Oceana region and stated that more information could be found in the admin portal.
Upon attempting to login to Microsoft 365 services, many received this error message.
Many began expressing frustrations due to the fact that they were unable to access that admin portal to get more information. While others expressed their frustration with being locked out of everything as well as the high number of recent outages Microsoft users have had to deal with.
Finally, at ~2:00am Microsoft reported that they had redistributed traffic in the affected infrastructure and confirmed 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.
