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.”
