Is Office 365 a good example in itself of a serverless architecture?
For a number of hours on June 29, one entry point to the Office 365 Admin center was down. Users were unable to access the Office 365 Admin Center from iOS devices.
For this specific instance, you can see if your own tenant was affected by checking the Service Health history. The two log entries that are visible in my tenant are MD108133 and IT108132. These are specific for MDM and Intune, so I’m not talking about widespread downtime. This was only a very specific case.
The serverless architecture piece is that a user/admin doesn’t always have to go through the O365 Admin center to access other admin centers. With the right URLs, you can go directly to the admin center that you need.
Martina Grom, (@magrom), posted a useful set of direct links to different Office 365 admin centers. I want to post a version of that list here, as a tool to keep in the bottom of your O365 Toolbox, just in case you ever need it.
