Microsoft’s Windows Azure cloud platform was offline for 22 hours  over the weekend. Windows Azure , which provides developers with on-demand compute and storage to host web applications and services in Microsoft’s data center, is currently in technology preview. The incident began Friday night at about 10:30 pm Pacific time, and was resolved at 8:30 Saturday night.
Windows Azure is housed in Microsoft’s huge data center in Quincy, Washington  and runs on Dell servers.  The pre-release technology preview and beta periods are useful for finding and fixing glitches, but also a time when developers are formulating opinions about the offering.
