Server failure brings doubt to Microsoft’s cloud-based plans

Microsoft has seriously embarrassed themselves and brought huge doubt to the viability of their Office Live incentive from their server failure this week, impacting all Sidekick phone users. Although they are saying that Office Live is built with server redundancy as a key part of their infrastructure, the fact that they have completely failed to offer redundancy for their Danger Sidekick phone users is obviously a major blow for Microsoft’s credibility to run any online/cloud-based service.

Quite how they allowed themselves to get into an unrecoverable position losing all their users data is quite unimaginable.
