Wonderful talk, really refreshing to see this level of transparency versus others in the industry.
That issue with the ceriticate failure; the public report suggested the following certs failed:
Now, one issue this failure highlights is that the entire global storage namespace has a common URL, which is (for tablestorage, for example):
If the URL was instead:
Which is analogous to how AWS does it, for instance, for S3, they have:
You would then have the ability to assign separate SSL certs per region. As long as you have a separate cert per region and ensure that all these certs expire on different dates, this would have been an incident isolated to a region and not global. True that time is a single point for failure. Might be possible, however, to potentially spread this risk over several slices of time.
