Windows Azure down by Leap-year Bug

Postby Antony » Fri 02 Mar, 2012 12:04 am

Microsoft's cloud service Windows Azure and perhaps the only cloud service gained Don's approval somehow went down for more than 12 hours on 29th February.

According to reports, it was the leap-year bug that caused the issue. Somehow, the system couldn't calculate 366 days in a year (which occurs every 4 years).
