Marathon Measures Downtime

LITTLETON, Mass. -- Marathon Technologies Corporation, the leading provider of automated, fault tolerant-class availability solutions for virtual and physical environments, today announced the launch of the first Application Availability ROI Calculator. The resource tool, which was designed by Marathons leading experts in application availability, provides customers with a fast, easy way to estimate the impact of application downtime and how much they could save by deploying application availability software. The ROI calculator was designed to provide IT professionals with a tool that they could complete in five minutes or less. It is available from authorized Marathon Infinity partners or directly on the corporate site,

Based on the customer’s input, Marathon’s ROI Calculator estimates the annual downtime costs in terms of lost revenue, lost productivity and avoidable support costs. It also calculates what they could save by deploying Marathon’s everRun software, how quickly they would get a return on their investment, and which version of everRun fault tolerant-class software would be most appropriate for their availability requirements.

“The risk and cost of unplanned downtime continues to increase as IT departments manage growing sets of data, more complex networks and a growing number of critical applications,” said Gary Phillips, president and CEO of Marathon Technologies. “Our new ROI Calculator is a powerful but simple way for IT professionals to approximate what application downtime is costing their organization to help quantify the business impact.
