The Costs of Downtime
It can seem trivial - going offline for a few minutes, but downtime is very costly and those outages add up. According to Forrester research, small businesses, on average, stand to lose $12,500 per hour of downtime. Their average loss of profit for all businesses per hour is a staggering $212,000. Think of being down for an entire 8-hour business day. That’s not the kind of money anyone wants to see go out the window.
