My (@rogerjenn) live OakLeaf Systems Azure Table Services Sample Project demo project runs two small Windows Azure Web role instances from Microsoft’s South Central US (San Antonio, TX) data center. This report now contains two full years of uptime data.
Following is the first page of the detailed Pingdom response time data for May 2013:
You can check the site’s Public Status Page (shown for 6/7/2013) by clicking here:
This is the twenty-fourth uptime report for the two-Web role version of the sample project since it was upgraded to two instances. Uptimes below SLA 99.9% minimums are emphasized. Reports will continue on a monthly basis.
Update 5/7/2013: Added links to those previous uptime reports currently accessible. I don’t know why some posts are missing from the Internet.
The Azure Table Services Sample Project
See my Republished My Live Azure Table Storage Paging Demo App with Two Small Instances and Connect, RDP post of 5/9/2011 for more details about the Windows Azure test harness instance.
I believe this project is the oldest continuously running Windows Azure application. I first deployed it in November 2008 when I was writing Cloud Computing with the Windows Azure Platform for Wiley/WROX, which was the first book published about Windows Azure.
The application runs the default set of Windows Azure Diagnostics. About 5 GB of Event Counter data provides the source data for my Generating Big Data for Use with SQL Azure Federations and Apache Hadoop on Windows Azure Clusters post of 1/8/2012.
