Unplanned IT downtime can cost your business millions of dollars a year, and downtime costs are growing. In 2010, businesses lost on average $5,600 per minute in an outage, according to Emerson Network Power. This is a frightening number, but in just over 3 years, the cost of downtime has increased 41%.
