Important information regarding your Microsoft Azure subscriptions
As a Microsoft Azure customer we’re letting you know about Microsoft’s current capacity issues within their data centres. This is across the EU but especially in the UK.
When adding new subscriptions within the Azure portal, you’ll be advised if a data centre is unavailable and provided with alternatives. The recommended data centres at this time are US East or US South Central.
If you have existing resource in the UK, it’s recommended that your customers don’t scale up and down regularly, otherwise there may not be the required capacity available to scale back up.
Due to these issues Microsoft is seeing a large number of incidents, meaning response times to tickets/calls are longer then usual.
