What’s the real cost of IT Downtime?

Infrastructure matters. When your network or applications unexpectedly fail or crash, downtime can have a direct impact on your bottom line and ongoing business operations.


Average cost of IT downtime

IT Downtime Factors

The industry average cost of downtime is dependent on a lot of variables. The monetary losses vary when you consider your revenue, industry, the actual duration of the outage, the number of people impacted, the time of day, etc.

For example, losses are significantly higher per hour for businesses who are based on high-level data transactions, like banks and online retail sales.

If you experience an unplanned outage during peak traffic time, obviously the damage will be more significant.

Additional Cost of IT Downtime

But there are other costs that don’t often show up in dollar form. Did you know, according to a study by UC Irvine, it often takes an average of 23 minutes to refocus and get your head back in the game after an interruption?

IT downtime affects customer retention, employee productivity and reputation in the marketplace. It is extremely expensive, and in ways that can make or break the success of your organization.

How much does a data recovery service cost?

On average, professional data recovery can cost anywhere from $300 to well over $1.900. Usually, what determines the final quote is the type of device, type of damage, and its severity, as well as the turnaround time selected.

Data Recovery is a complex process and it is difficult to quote without assessing the drive. It can be as low as $95 for jobs that require simple data recovery from operational hard disk drives, USB drives & SD Flash Cards and can range from a few thousand for complex RAID System Data Recovery.

What is the difference between data backup and disaster recovery?

The sub processes—'backup' and 'disaster recovery'—are sometimes mistaken for each other or for the entire process. Backup is the process of making the file copies. Disaster recovery is the plan and processes for using the copies to quickly reestablish access to applications, data and IT resources after an outage.

Backup-as-a-service (BaaS) is a cloud-based service model in which the data of an organization is backed up on a remote cloud-based server or data center. What differentiates it from traditional data storage is that the entire BaaS service is provided by a third-party BaaS service provider. The primary purpose of BaaS is to keep the data backup of the organization safe and secure. It involves safekeeping data from several risks of data loss such as human error, cybersecurity attacks as well as natural disasters.

Disaster Recovery (DR) is the process that includes the process and strategies that an organization implements to resume and maintain critical business functions and operations in case of disruptive events. The purpose of Disaster Recovery is to be ready with a strategic plan of action that an organization plans to implement in case it is exposed to any disruptive events. It involves a plan to prepare an organization for instant and swift resumption of operation after the occurrence of unforeseen disruptive events.

What is the difference between backup as a service and disaster recovery as a service?

BaaS solutions are thought to be best for long-term cloud backup, while DRaaS best supports quick recovery of applications during a disaster

How to recover data from natural disasters?

You need to identify which data sources are affected, how much data is lost or corrupted, and what are the risks and priorities for restoring them. Depending on the type and scale of the disaster, you may need to physically inspect the devices, use diagnostic tools, or contact your backup providers.
