Follow-up to availability

June 16, 2007

It looks like Microsoft’s main website (www.microsoft.com) has an availability YTD 2007 of 99.83%.  So they’ve been offline for about 9 hours so far in this year, or about 90 minutes a month.  I wonder when the outages were and what caused them?

Anyway, Anna Liu has a couple posts (here and here) with some stats what it takes to run www.microsoft.com and how much load is put on the infrastructure.  Right now they’re running Windows Server 2008 Beta 3 on 80 servers in two datacenters.

I find this kind of stuff really cool.  And yes, I am a geek.
