Microsoft reported a sharp increase in the load on cloud services – it jumped by 775%. The company explained that users of Windows Virtual Desktop, for example, have tripled. Microsoft Teams uses 44 million users daily; they generated 900 million minutes of meetings and calls.
In addition, the load on the Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Live and Mixer has increased. For this reason, gamers were temporarily banned from uploading new custom profile images, backgrounds for profiles and club pages. This is done in order to facilitate the work of moderators.
Microsoft also holds events that will deliver updates to games without interruption. Earlier, the company noted that its priority is to ensure the operation of the services needed by emergency services.
