What Is Network Downtime?
Network downtime is when your systems are not functioning properly for their primary purpose, meaning that your business cannot operate correctly. For example, if your computer network stops working and you cannot get into any of the data or files that your company needs, this would be counted as downtime as nobody can get their job done.
Downtime can refer to a single application or computer, a single server, or an entire network. The system could be temporarily unavailable, offline or simply unable to operate, but it costs your business a lot of money, even for a short period of downtime.
