However, ALS metrics, as a general tool, can have human consequences – if a company accepts, for example, that the availability of a web-based application will pay attention to a certain level of agreement. The period during which the operating time obligation is calculated is significant. For example, an operating time requirement of 99.9% per month means that there may be about 43 minutes of downtime in a given month; However, if the operating time requirement is calculated quarterly, downtime periods may exceed two hours, which could have a significant impact on the customer and its business. In general, shorter periods for calculating operating time are better for customers, while creditors want a longer period.

You can stand for a few months, but sooner or later, there`s always something going on. There are too many things that can go wrong. Suppliers like to boast of the high availability of their systems by claiming to have a service level agreement at 99.999% (and cash) (SLA) because that`s what potential buyers want to hear.
