The Microsoft Azure issue that affected access to using InventoryLab has now been resolved. You should be able to log in to your account and utilize it with no issues.
To explain the issue, Microsoft stated:
“Engineers have isolated an issue with cooling in one part of the data center, which caused a localized spike in temperature, as the preliminary root-cause, which has now been mitigated. Automated data center procedures to ensure data and hardware integrity went into effect when temperatures hit a specified threshold and critical hardware entered a structured power down process.”
This caused many systems hosted in the affected region (including InventoryLab) to also go down. While parts of Microsoft Azure is still down, the services that InventoryLab uses has been restored.
If you experience any more issues, or have any additional questions or concerns, please reach out via support.inventorylab.com.
Thank you for your patience while waiting on this to be resolved.
