The Downtime Cost Calculator provides a tool for a solution provider to use with their clients and prospects. The Downtime Cost Calculator allows the solution provider to enter some basic information and show their clients and prospects how much downtime actually costs. The calculator also shows whether or not the Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and the Recovery Point Objective (RPO) are met. From there, solution providers can transition easily to a conversation about additional services and solutions to minimize the cost of downtime. This simple, easy to use calculator offers real data that is as accurate as the data supplied by the client.
