How do we know in advance about service downtime for planned maintenance?
Azure is designed to avoid downtime for customer applications, storage, and service management capability during maintenance activities on the Azure platform. Our availability commitment applies to customer applications that use a minimum of two role instances. You can learn about Azure best practices for mitigating downtime by reading High availability for applications built on Microsoft Azure. The Azure SLA is documented here.
