You hear a lot of statements from venders usually based on polling as to to what the average percentage of servers per year is and yet the only ones who would really know this percentage are those that actually measure it. Can anyone who does measure their uptime percentage tell me what that percentage is? Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

We do not track our up-time here but the suggested up time for a server is 99.99% of the time which is very difficult to do because that is roughly 15 minutes a year of downtime. But I believe a more realistic number is 96% on a smoothly running environment that has a few issues a year or needs a reboot.

    First all one fact need to be cleared here. Make sure you read the web host's TOS & SLA very carefully. Most of the service providers mention “ 100% Network Uptime Guarantee” not “ Server Uptime Guarantee”, because for server maintenance downtime usually unavoidable.
