What does the recent No-IP problem tell us about Windows Azure?
Correct me if I'm wrong.
Microsoft recently got control of a large amount of subdomains (and some other things), but Azure (which was handling the name servers of these domains) was unable to handle the traffic and as a result, the many of these websites went down for some time.
Only it didn't work, as No-IP explained: "Apparently, the Microsoft infrastructure is not able to handle the billions of queries from our customers. Millions of innocent users are experiencing outages to their services because of Microsoft’s attempt to remediate hostnames associated with a few bad actors."
I know that this can be No-IP's efforts to defend themselves and instead play the blame game on Microsoft, but it could be possible. What else could be possible is that everything was working right and someone did something stupid and messed everything up.
As I said, correct me if I am wrong.
So what do you guys think?
Not sure why some people are calling me a troll. The news is located all over the web so finding the source isn't that difficult. When "Microsoft infrastructure" is brought up in something that involves handling websites and IP addresses, it's a pretty reasonable thought to relate it to Windows Azure, which is the cloud platform for Microsoft. If you have an issue, write it out instead of getting all mad and simply calling me a troll.
