Why Do Cloud Apps Crash?

Applications running in a cloud computing environment experience downtime at least as often as on-premise apps.


While cloud computing can offer enterprises a greater degree of flexibility and, in some cases, lower costs, moving to the cloud doesn't necessarily result in greater uptime. In fact, cloud applications crash about as frequently as apps housed in traditional on-premise data centers.

eWeek has put together a list of the nine most common reasons why cloud apps crash:

  1. Human error
  2. Application bugs
  3. Cloud provider downtime
  4. Quality of service
  5. Extreme spikes in customer demand
  6. Security breaches
  7. Third-party service failures
  8. Storage failures
  9. Lack of cloud disaster recovery procedures
