Windows Azure Platform Global outage, Microsoft failure to renew SSL certificate

Global outage on Windows Azure platform caused by improper renewal of *.table.core.windows.net Wildcard SSL certificate.

In a company the size of microsoft and with as so many enterprise class clients using Azure you would think that they would have a procedures in place to prevent simple yet catastrophic mistakes like this.

Although better to be down than run insecure, some Azure users are opting to run in non SSL HTTP mode in order to keep services online.
