The modern data center is tied directly to the successes of a business, especially when it comes to the uptime and downtime of the data center’s operations. In recent years, company’s reliance on the data center platforms have continued to grow as more systems move to cloud, more applications are deployed, and more devices connect into the data center.
Keeping this in mind, data center administrators are growing increasingly concerned with redundancy and uptime. According to an article released in Data Center Knowledge earlier this month, the average data center outage costs about $7900/minute, or roughly $474K per hour.
With stakes this high, organizations MUST invest in better power management and data center resiliency solutions. Otherwise, you could be facing a serious outage bill or worse- lose the reputation of your trusted customers and the people they serve.
