Compound problem

Its a shame that this happened on the same day that the public transport system suffered a significant failure requiring a far higher number of people to work from home. I expect that the two are linked in some way.

You have to ask though, why didn't MS capacity management notice that they were getting close to a hard limit in one of their platforms, I thought this was one of the big pluses of Cloud - <sarc>you don't have to worry about all of that, we do it for you and do it better than you can</sarc>

I wonder if MS should look at AWS Elasticache, that can be scaled out elastically and it uses redis too, so migration to it should be simple.
