Executive Summary

Most IT environments aim for five-nines reliability, which requires at least 99.999% uptime (or just five minutes and fifteen seconds of downtime per year).

And Brigham and Women's strives to lead the way in patient care and quality, which demands standards that go beyond five-nines. The evaluation process Fraai used was unique.
