Time is money. In context of your network, this truth yields two simple equations:
- Network down-time = money lost
- Network up-time = money gained
It is that simple. As the network is business critical for every business, maintaining network uptime, or business continuity, is foundational to the bottom line. Alternately, network down-time costs real money, and more.
