194 years of downtime: looking back on incident data from 2018

Statuspage customers logged more than 194 years of collective incidents in 2018. That’s a whopping 87% increase from the 104 years logged in 2017, and we aren’t even through December yet.

Open incident communication is becoming more and more important to companies and their customers. This is underlined by the big names who have set up a public Statuspage this year like GithubLinkedIn, and Yelp. With more focus on incident communication comes more focus on incident management in general. Companies are spending more time and resources preparing for downtime, as we learned from a handful of customers we profiled on how they prepare for high traffic days.

We dug deeper into our 2018 data to get a better idea of when and how our customers communicated around downtime this year. The data represents all reported incidents – from small blips in service to large-scale outages – plus any planned downtime logged through scheduled maintenance.

Thanks for wonderful report!

Just curious, how many customer status pages have been used for a report?
Just interesting avg of the downtime, avg maintenance of the period for a per system in one year.
