99.58% Uptime with Android MiniPCs, Azure, and WordPress

My Android MiniPCs and TVBoxes blog runs WordPress on WebMatrix with Super Cache on Windows Azure Web Site (WAWS) Preview with ClearDB’s MySQL database (Venus plan) in Microsoft West U.S. (Bay Area) data center. I use Windows Live Writer to author posts that provide technical details of low-cost MiniPCs with HDMI outputs running Android JellyBean 4.1+ and emphasis on high-definition 1080p video rendition.


The site commenced operation on 4/25/2013. To improve response time, I implemented WordPress Super Cache on May 15, 2013.

Here’s Pingdom’s detailed Uptime report (in Downtime mode) for May 2013:


And here’s their Response Time report for the same period:


Note: The improvement in response time by implementing WordPress Super Cache on 5/15/2013 is evident in the preceding data.

I plan to report and log uptime values monthly with pages similar to OakLeaf Systems’ Uptime Report for my Live OakLeaf Systems Azure Table Services Sample Projectposts, which has two full years of uptime and response time data as of June 2013.

Month Year Uptime Downtime Outages Response Time
May 2013 99.58% 03:05:00 32 2,706 ms

Windows Azure Web Sites are in preview mode as of May 2013, so the usual 99.9% uptime Service Level Agreement (SLA) doesn’t apply. When WAWS enters General Availability mode, I’ll emphasize Uptime values for months in which the site didn’t meet the SLA.
