Active - Failures while accessing Azure OpenAI Service

Details

Impact Statement: Starting at approximately 00:01 UTC on 13 July 2024, a subset of customers across multiple regions using the Azure OpenAI service began experiencing errors when calling the Azure OpenAI endpoints and may have issues accessing their resources for the duration of this impact. 
Current Status: During a routine cleanup operation, we believe that some dependent backend components became unavailable, which led to the aforementioned issues. This was believed to be transient, as initially, this only affected a small percentage of customers, however it soon increased to multiple regions. We have stopped the cleanup operation to avoid further impact, while we continue to work on our recovery efforts.
These efforts are ongoing across all impacted regions, which are seeing partial service restoration. Customers in these regions may start noticing improvements. 
Retries may be successful as the mitigation progresses across the different affected regions. 
Initially, this issue was communicated via the public Azure Status page, as the full impact was not adequately determined. Now that the root cause has been determined, and the impact is no longer increasing, all further updates will be communicated via our standard communications to impacted customers in Azure Service Health.

About Our Azure Status Page Integration

Azure is a Cloud Infrastructure and Microsoft solution that StatusGator has been monitoring since March 2015. Over the past over 9 years, we have collected data on on more than 1,787 outages that affected Azure users. When Azure publishes downtime on their status page, they do so across 5,887 components and 65 groups using 3 different statuses: up, warn, and down which we use to provide granular uptime metrics and notifications.

More than 2,300 StatusGator users monitor Azure to get notified when it's down or has an outage. This makes it one of the most popular cloud infrastructure services monitored on our platform. We've sent more than 167,400 notifications to our users about Azure incidents, providing transparency and peace of mind. You can get alerts by signing up for a free StatusGator account.

If Azure is having system outages or experiencing other critical issues, red down notifications appear on the status page. In most cases, it means that core functions are not working properly, or there is some other serious customer-impacting event underway.

Warn notifications are used when Azure is undergoing a non-critical issue like minor service issues, performance degradation, non-core bugs, capacity issues, or problems affecting a small number of users.

Azure does not post separate notifications for planned maintenance work so we are unable to send notifications when maintenance windows begin. If you need Azure maintenance notifications, please email us.

Azure does not publish a feed of proactive maintenance events on their status page at this time. If they do, be sure to let us know and we'll aggregate Azure maintenance events into your unified calendar.

When Azure posts issues on their status page, we collect the main headline message and include that brief information or overview in notifications to StatusGator subscribers.

When Azure has outages or other service-impacting events on their status page, we pull down the detailed informational updates and include them in notifications. These messages often include the current details about how the problem is being mitigated, or when the next update will occur.

Because Azure has several components, each with their individual statuses, StatusGator can differentiate the status of each component in our notifications to you. This means, you can filter your status page notifications based on the services, regions, or components you utilize. This is an essential feature for complex services with many components or services spread out across many regions.
