Microsoft releases Online Service Health Dashboard to make service status more transparent

On Monday, Microsoft released Microsoft Online Service Health Dashboard, available to customers in all regions, to deliver a more timely and accurate information about the status of BPOS services.  Microsoft Online Services are designed for reliability, availability and performance, backed by a 99.9% uptime Service Level Agreement.  With this new service, customers will no longer need to wonder if service interruptions were caused by networking issues from their own service provider or by the Online Services.  The Online Service Health Dashboard includes a access to a greater level of information regarding the status of tools and service, current service status, and a 35-day status history.
