BPOS Uptime Dashboard Makes Debut

Microsoft this week is introducing a sensible addition to the Microsoft Business Productivity Online Suite -- an uptime dashboard.

Called the Microsoft Online Service Health Dashboard, the online display shows the status of various BPOS components in green (good), yellow (slow) and red (down) icons. A Microsoft screenshot of the dashboard shows the tool monitoring subscription services including Exchange Online Mailflow, Exchange Online Outlook Connectivity, Exchange Online ActiveSync, Forefront Online Protection for Exchange, Hosted BlackBerry, Outlook Web Access, SharePoint Online, Office Communications Online and Office Live Meeting. The tool also monitors BPOS administrative services, and partner-specific cuts of data are available.

Charles Van Heusen, a partner technology advisor with Microsoft's TS2 Team, announced the tool in a blog posting Wednesday covered by my colleague Kurt Mackie.

Heusen wrote that the tool is designed to answer the question, "How do we know when there are service interruptions from the Online services verses networking issues with our own service provider or our network"?
