The Cost of Downtime
When your business goes down, you feel it immediately. Impacts can include:
- Productivity loss, employee morale issues
- Revenue and cash flow loss
- Customer and partner reputation and goodwill loss
- Regulatory and compliance cost penalties
The cost per minute of downtime is estimated to be $5600 – and recently has been reported to be as high as $7900 per minute.(1) The traditional answer to this has been the use of complex and costly high-availability techniques such as redundant active/active and active/passive clustered systems.
