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!”).
