Microsoft continues to point at infrastructure changes being the cause of the disruptions of service.

Per Microsoft’s Azure Status Page:

Preliminary Root Cause: A change was made to an internal service that controls routing across the Azure Wide Area Network (WAN). A bug in the new version of the service caused traffic to route non-optimally across the WAN, causing network congestion and packet loss.

Whether all of the recent disruptions are interconnected is still uncertain.
