Good Afternoon,

From 10:00PM Saturday, until 2:32PM Sunday the Microsoft SQL database clusters experienced an outage related to migration to new core.

We believe the problem is now corrected, and that it may not have affected all systems that use the database cluster; however please check any services that utilize the central SQL database clusters and advise us if you are still having difficulties with one of your services.
