Aug 16, 14:28 AEST

Aug 16, 14:15 AEST
Update - Microsoft Azure Support Engineers are working to cancel the stalled auto scaling operation. We are awaiting further updates from the Azure Support team and will continue to provide updates via https://status.edsmart.com.
Aug 16, 14:10 AEST
Identified - The issue lies with the scale up/down functions in the Azure database platform. This is functionality we have been using without incident for some 8 years. The most recent automated scale up operation stalled and our engineering team were not able to manually resolve.

We have found some references online, indicating that this is a very rare but known issue with Azure SQL.

The nature of the issue also appears to have sidestepped our monitoring, for example, database connection monitoring, which did not trigger. It seems Azure 'thinks' the database is available when actually it isn't.

The engineering team is dealing directly with senior account and engineering management at Microsoft Azure. In the meantime, they are also working to make the database available via other means, as the accepted Azure restore methods for failover are also unavailable due to the current issue.

Aug 16, 12:55 AEST
Update - Microsoft Azure Support are still investigating the issue, it’s ranked at the highest priority in their support system and we are in constant contact with their account and technical management teams.
Aug 16, 11:44 AEST
Update - Microsoft Azure Support have escalated management for this critical issue and are working with EdSmart to identify and resolve the problem urgently. Please continue to subscribe to https://status.edsmart.com/ for updates. Thank you for your understanding.
Aug 16, 10:06 AEST
Investigating - Our Support and Engineering teams are aware of an issue with our Microsoft Azure SQL Database as of 6:30 am local time. We are investigating the issue with highest priority and have contacted Microsoft Support.

Please continue to subscribe to status.edsmart.com for updates. We apologise for the inconvenience this may have caused and we endeavour to restore service as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.
