Update #2 on Microsoft cloud services continuity

28 марта 2020 г.

Since last week’s update, the global health pandemic continues to impact every organization—large or small—their employees, and the customers they serve. Everyone is working tirelessly to support all our customers, especially critical health and safety organizations across the globe, with the cloud services needed to sustain their operations during this unprecedented time. Equally, we are hard at work providing services to support hundreds of millions of people who rely on Microsoft to stay connected and to work and play remotely.

Using this feature customers can take control of host updates for a period of 35-days in a rolling window. At public preview we are making CLI, PowerShell, APIs available. Portal will come later.
