There’s really no question that the modern data center is tied directly to the successes of a business. In fact, reliance on the data center platform will only continue to grow as more systems move to cloud, more applications are deployed, and more devices connect into the data center. With this in mind, data center administrators are growing increasingly concerned with redundancy and uptime.

Here’s the reality: Uptime is revenue. Here's an interesting white paper that dives into how outages specifically impact business revenue and why critical uptime capabilities are so important. In fact, the average data center outage costs about $7900/minute, or roughly $474K/hr! 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.

Data center services are only going to continue to become more critical for the modern business. This means that uptime will be an absolutely critical factor to consider for any data center architecture.
