I came across a study that indicated the average cost of a data center outage is about $5200/minute. That could amount to very large expense. The interesting thing about the report was that the second highest cause of outages was human error. This means those Dynamics users running their own data center are exposing their company to a significant financial risk. An advantage to using WatServ’s services is that our change management approach virtually eliminates the kinds of human errors that cause severe outages.
Here is the chart showing high and low costs as well as the average.
