The Cloud Doesn't Have a Silver Lining

Despite Microsoft's marketing hype, the Cloud sometimes does not have a "silver lining".

The Telegraph reports:
"Microsoft's Office 365 services - which provide online access to Word, Excel and Outlook, among other software - was offline for many users across Europe on Thursday due to a problem with Microsoft's cloud computing service, Azure. 
Many users reported being blocked from accessing the Office 365 portal, with Down Detector, a website that tracks outages, seeing a spike in reports. Many appear to be related to problems signing in to Outlook, Microsoft's email portal."
Stick to desktop applications, and beware sharing data on a shared resource such as the Cloud.
