Many in IT still don't trust the cloud. Well, Microsoft gave a fresh reason for concern as its Business Productivity Online Services (BPOS) went dark three times in as many weeks.
While customers with SLAs should get a break on their bill, that not really the point. You buy software, whether in the cloud or on premise, to use it, not stare at a blank or frozen screen (insert all the Windows jokes you want here).
In one case, BPOS was down for two hours, which is about one hour, 59 minutes and 59 seconds too long for most IT pros.
BPOS is an online portfolio of apps -- including Exchange, SharePoint and Office Communications Server.
