The Azure Leap Year Bug

I work at Microsoft on the Windows Azure Fabric Controller team.  Azure had a nasty outage on February 29 2012, which many people have asked me about.

The full write up is  here.  Not only does this write up describe the outage, it's an excellent description of the azure fabric controller, and many of the technologies I work on.

I'm extremely proud of our response to the outage. We were completely transparent in our assessment, and as it says in the write up:  "Rest assured that we are already hard at work using our learnings to improve Windows Azure".
