Microsoft SkyDrive currently experiencing service disruptions [Update]

It looks like Office 365 is not the only Microsoft product facing issues today. The official Microsoft SkyDrive account is also reporting that this service is also facing some issues too.

These two Microsoft services are in good company as there have been a string of outages across the web today. If nothing else, when a service goes down, we quickly realize how reliant we are on web based services.

For Microsoft, even if these problems are externally related, the black eye still lands on their products. Unfortunately, outages are an issue the corporate IT world. While there were not specifics on what SkyDrive users are facing, it is clear that some users are having issues accessing their data.

When the service will return to normal is not known. We will update this post when Microsoft confirms that disruption to the service has been resolved.

[Update] Microsoft is reporting that service has been restored.

Not a good advertisement for cloud services in general

Now that the cloud is getting more and more popular, we're just starting to live the pains of having our stuff in a remote place

I really don't see where this notion of "it's the cloud OR it's traditional computing" comes from, at least with services like Skydrive. I use it to sync settings and files between my computers, and occasionally to remotely log into one from the other. The cloud hasn't taken over my usage patterns. It simply allows me to do things that I'd otherwise do, in a more convenient fashion.
