While some GoFormz customers have reported trouble-free services, others will continue to be impacted as Azure services continue to come back online.
-- Here is the latest from the Microsoft Azure engineering team --
Multiple Services - Applying Extended Mitigation
UPDATE AS OF 15:00 UTC: Engineers have restored storage availability for the majority of impacted services, and customers should be continuing to see improvements to service availability.
CUSTOMER IMPACT: Starting at 09:29 UTC on 04 Sep 2018, customers with resources in South Central US may experience difficulties connecting to resources hosted in this region. A complete list of impacted services can be found below.
PRELIMINARY ROOT CAUSE: A severe weather event, including lightning strikes, occurred near one of the South Central US datacenters. This resulted in a power voltage increase that impacted cooling systems. Automated datacenter procedures to ensure data and hardware integrity went into effect and critical hardware entered a structured power down process.
ENGINEERING STATUS: Engineers have restored access to storage resources for the majority of services, and most customers should be seeing signs of recovery. Engineers are continuing to work on any residual storage impact to fully mitigate this issue. We are also working with the impacted service teams to validate their service health in order to update this status page.
NEXT UPDATE: The next update will be provided by 17:00 UTC 05 Sep 2018 or as events warrant.https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/status/
