While outages aren't as prevalent and pervasive as they were in years past, the harm they cause business customers might be greater than ever.

The burgeoning number of mission-critical workloads migrating to cloud infrastructure amplifies the damage caused by even a short service interruption. Each outage, no matter how quickly remedied, erodes credibility in the technology and dissuades greater adoption.
