Activate Alerts for Potential Azure Service Issues
Business resumption and proactive monitoring should be top of mind for any IT professional. Now that your workloads are moving to the cloud, you have less to worry about regarding foundational infrastructure. You still need to consider, for all the redundancy built into cloud solutions, sometimes the inevitable can happen. In 1987 and again in 1994, squirrels were responsible for the temporary shutdown of the Nasdaq (the completely digital stock exchange). For all the planning that architects and engineers can do, there are always difficult to predict variables.
In Microsoft’s blog post Three ways to get notified about Azure service issues, find out how you can activate alerts for potential Azure service issues. Learn how to setup email alerts, mobile push notifications, and connect alerts with your IT service management tools.
The following information is taken from Three ways to get notified about Azure service issues:
All three take advantage of Azure Service Health, a free Azure service that lets you configure alerts to notify you automatically about service issues that might have an impact on your availability.
1. Start simple with an email alert to catch all issues
Set up an alert that will email your key operations professionals about any service issue that could affect any service or region.
2. Set up a mobile push alert for urgent issues
Not all service issues are created equal. If there’s a potential impact to a critical production workload, you’ll want to find out and respond as quickly as possible.
3. Connect our alerts with your IT service management tools
This will allow you to automatically create and assign tickets for Azure service issues.
