Do you know how much a system outage or IT downtime could cost your business? According to Garter, the average cost of an is IT outage is $5,600 a minute. There are many factors involved in calculating the costs for each business but in a recent ITIC survey, 98% of organizations said a single hour of downtime costs over $100,000. You can probably make rough guess for your own business and it's likely to be serious money.

Businesses are increasingly making use of cloud or multi-cloud IT resources and so being able to access them is critical. If you cannot reach your cloud, you cannot use your cloud. Therefore, any investment you make to minimize connectivity downtime by creating a stable wide area network (WAN) will pay for itself multiple times over.
