Downtime Insurance for Cloud Services
Your customers expect your products and services to be up and running at all times, but you have no control over what happens when your cloud service provider goes down. This is where Parametrix comes in with our simple, smart and affordable policies for businesses that rely on the cloud for their mission-critical activities and need to quickly get back to business after an outage!
What Happens When Your Cloud Service Goes Down?
What you do have control over is the outage-related financial risk which can be quite significant. A single hour of downtime can cost SMEs tens of thousands of dollars, while for larger companies the losses can add up to far more than that.
Do you really want to risk the financial exposure created by your cloud provider’s downtime events? While they may compensate you with credits, you still need to cover an array of financial losses including:
Cloud downtime can strain your company’s financial reserves due to unexpected monetary exposures which increase the volatility of your cash flows.
Lost End-user Productivity
When applications stop working productivity can grind to a halt for both internal and external users who are unable to access the services they need.
Meeting all the financial obligations based on your customers’ SLAs (service level agreements) can have a tremendous impact on your bottom line.
Lost or Damaged Data
Downtime can prevent critical data from being recorded and stored, requiring time-consuming work as people have to re-enter or reconfigure it later.
Lost Employee Productivity
Your IT and service teams need to shift from their normal working activities to figuring out how to support customers & bring the business back online.
Your customer service, marketing and sales teams need to handle the negative feedback and update customers, some of whom may never come back.
