This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
The causation over the Azure data centre outage leaves more questions than answers
The September 2018 Azure data centre outage
leaves more questions than answers. Microsoft generically sums it up as
a cooling issue triggered by lightning storms. In this neck of the
savannah we have lightning storms that are the trademark signature
weather of the Highveld. We live at an elevation of 1.5 km. My house is
the highest one in our burrow and the advertising sign on William Nicol
Drive about 200m from my house is regularly klapped by lightning. We are
basically immune to the earth shattering sound of thunder and lightning.
