I saw this post on GigaOm on Microsoft outages on Monday.

Several Microsoft Azure services — virtual machines, cloud services, StorSimple, backup and site recovery — were off line for hours Monday afternoon.

It’s Monday, and it’s already been a pretty bad week for Microsoft Azure. Starting early afternoon Eastern time, the company witnessed partial and full service interruptions to several of its services across multiple regions. The sites were back up again at around 8 p.m. eastern time, according to Microsoft.

Out of curiosity going to Azure History you can see the range of issues that have occurred over the past month.  At Microsoft’s scale there it looks like there is a constant stream of issues.
