This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
Average Cost of a Data Center Outage
Time is money. And data center downtime is A LOT of money. That’s
what the latest findings from the Ponemon Institute indicate in their
most recent edition of the Cost of Data Center Outages report.
The average cost of a data center outage in 2016 now stands at
$740,357, up 38% from when the report was first developed in 2010.
That’s $8,851 per minute of lost revenue, and unproductive employees
(“e-mail’s down, time for some minesweeper!”).
