Can You Afford Data Center Downtime or Data Loss?

While computer data threats such as viruses, spyware and hacking receive national attention, environmental factors such as heat, humidity, poor airflow, smoke and electricity can be equally devastating.

For computer servers to operate properly, they’ve got to be kept cool (ideally, between 65º to 70º F) in order to prevent them from malfunctioning or incurring expensive damage. Depending on the size of your company and its industry, downtime and data loss can be costly.

  • A data center shutdown at Amazon.com that lasted 49 minutes in 2013, cost the company more than $4 million in lost sales.
  • A 5-minute outage at Google cost the company over $500,000.
  • A heat-related server shutdown at Microsoft kept businesses and individuals from being able to access their email accounts through Hotmail and Outlook for over 16 hours. Microsoft did not release figures on the cost of the shutdown.

 

Any company can fall victim to data center overheating, even some of the most successful tech companies of all time. And while your company might not lose quite as much during an outage, every second your site is down can be disastrous one for you and your relationship with your customers.
