Software vendors and analysts love to rattle off scary numbers about how many thousands of dollars per minute or hour an infrastructure outage will cost the typical company. Those numbers can be scary indeed; for example, Gartner quotes $5,400 per minute as the cost borne by a medium to large-sized retailer. Your company, however, is most likely not identical to the “typical” company on which the numbers are based. In fact, the cost of an outage can vary widely depending on a variety of factors specific to your organization.
