Business: Downtime caused by power outages is frustrating for anyone, but can be financially crippling for a business or organization. Every year, billions of dollars are lost due to downtime caused by power disruptions that could have been prevented by a UPS. For Fortune 1000 companies:
- The average annual cost of unplanned downtime: $1.25—$2.5 billion
- The average hourly cost of infrastructure failure: $100,000
- The average hourly cost of critical application failure: $500,000—$1 million
Small to medium-sized businesses may be at most financial risk due to a limited ability to generate revenue during downtime.
