Cloud Statistics: Outages Cost More Than 71 Million USDs Since 2007

We had spotted multiple cloud computing statistics in the past – we actually had some cloud infrastructure stats and cloud computing revenue stats, we had spotted some cloud adoption stats as well – we spotted this today:

“A total of 568 hours of downtime at 13 well-known cloud services since 2007 had an economic impact of more than $71.7 million dollars, said the International Working Group on Cloud Computing Resiliency (IWGCR) on Monday.

The average unavailability of cloud services is 7.5 hours per year, amounting to an availability rate of 99.9 percent, according to the group’s preliminary results. “It is extremely far from the expected reliability of mission critical system (99.999 percent). As a comparison, the service average unavailability for electricity in a modern capital is less than 15 minutes per year,” the researchers noted in their paper.”

The Unknown 100 Billion Dollar Market

Emerging countries would need to make IT investments in good scale to keep up with the information demands of a vibrant growing economy. But how big is something we had not spotted, until now. Well, we never could have guessed this one. We spotted this today:

“Forrester estimates that India’s public sector IT purchases will grow at a CAGR of 14% between 2012 and 2017, reaching $108.5 billion in 2017. In 2014, we anticipate a decrease in government spending due to parliamentary elections — but spending will pick up after the election, as maintaining GDP growth will be on the agenda of any new government. We believe that massive infrastructure investments and increasing citizen expectations will fuel public sector IT in spite of the 2014 parliamentary elections. Citizens are pressuring federal, state, and local government to become more proactive and interactive and to provide services in a more organized and user-friendly manner.”

Just as information on millions of Facebook users is prized by advertisers, the details companies amass from their operations can be used to cut costs and boost profits. Norfolk Southern (NSC), which buys diesel locomotives from the Fairfield (Conn.) company, uses customized software to monitor rail traffic, reducing congestion and allowing trains to move at higher speeds. The fourth-largest U.S. railroad estimates that making trains run an average of 1 mile per hour faster will save more than $200 million.”
