For customers that use any of the VMware Cloud Services, you can check the status of any or all services by visiting https://status.vmware-services.io. You even have the option of subscribe via a number of communication channels to receive updates.
Awhile back, I had someone ask whether our status page which uses the status.io service provides any APIs that could be used to programmatically retrieve status for specific service. I figured there probably is a way but only recently did I have a chance to follow-up on that request. The answer is yes and below is a quick example on how you use the REST APIs.
