Microsoft reported an outage involving SharePoint online and OneDrive for business on June 1, 2020 at ~4:00am UTC. Shortly after, Microsoft 365 Status reported that the issue was primarily isolated to users within Australia.


Some users reported issues when attempting to access SharePoint using their ISP however, they were not experiencing issues when using their mobile providers. While others expressed frustrations with the multiple outages and issues the Australian region has experienced in recent months.


Finally, roughly 2 hours later at ~6:30am UTC Microsoft confirmed that the issue was mitigated, and that Microsoft was closely monitoring the situation for any issues.



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.
