The corporate world went into a mild chaos a few hours ago, as Microsoft’s ominpresent Office 365 suite and Microsoft Teams services were both experiencing global outage. Microsoft later confirmed the outage and mentioned that services are now back to normal.
“We’ve identified that a recent networking update may have caused user traffic coming from the internet to fail intermittently before reaching Microsoft 365 services,” the company said in a status report around 7 p.m. Pacific time. “We’ve reverted this update and are seeing some initial signs of mitigation. We’re continuing to validate the cause of the problem while we monitor the environment for service recovery.
As of now, all services seem to have restored to their normal and the corporate world has been saved from a collapse.
