Have you missed Geeking out with Perry Clarke? Well he's back with another blog post and Geek Out with Perry episode where we chat about availability for Exchange Online in the Office 365 service.

Perry shares some insights on the framework that the team uses when designing reliability and availability as well as discusses with me how the team evolved their thinking as we transitioned from mainly creating Exchange as on-premises software to delivering Exchange as service.

I thought that this was an awesome topic but I'll leave it up to you to watch and give us feedback. We'll have more Geek Out with Perry videos coming soon as well some videos that feature you, our Exchange community!
