Cloud Outages: Are You Prepared To Pay The Price?

Posted on January 29, 2018 by Morgan Woodruff

It’s no surprise, cloud and IT outages can stop businesses in their tracks - that’s exactly what a new report from Lloyd and risk modeller AIR Worldwide demonstrates. According to this report “Cloud Down – The impacts on the US economy” an extreme cyber-incident (one that takes a top cloud provider offline) in the US for three to six days would result in losses nearing $15B.

This is exactly why uptime should be a top concern when selecting your cloud or data center provider. Outages can impact the accuracy of data collection, halt the delivery of services and goods, and make it difficult or impossible to share information with your customers. Without a guarantee of continued availability, what would your selection mean?
