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.
