Yes, it's down again: Microsoft's Office 365 takes yet another mid-week tumble, Azure also unwell


Why kill one SRE error budget, when you can kill budgets all over the world?! Of course, companies don't factor that in to their customer experience when they move to the cloud, nor do they care that they are moving from their own DC, limited complexity so good recoverability times (if they staff it) to a complex cloud (the underlying infrastructure is complex) with poor recoverability times (even if they bother staffing it).

The thrill of it all, is a large corporation moving to Salesforce Cloud, Oracle Cloud (or RE), Office364&Azure for desktop, AWS for workloads, F5& Centurylink for networks, you're beholden to all those actors and more doing their jobs; an endless patch cycle (because everything is at least semi-publilc), an endless cycle of EOL mattering.

You cease to be a company in a business sector for your customers and become an operations company for your own inftastructure.
