6. New apps status dashboard improves visibility

Do you know what's the best merit of Google products I like? Open.

Merely sharing source codes to the world is not open in my dictionary. Google shares more than that. App status is one of what Google opens to the world, no matter the status is good or bad, though which users know how long is the downtime for Gmail recently, or was there a disruption or outrage for Google Sites?

Please don't regard this innovation as redundant or insignificant, especially when you're choosing which service/product is worth to invest. The best evidence is the statistics of its history, isn't it? Then how many service providers out there dare to provide the real app status to all of the world? Many of them just want to polish a beautiful financial report to the stock holders, rather than tell the truth. Google has the confidence to its technology, so it's open.

Let's take a look at some real data to gain more feeling. Last year, Gmail was up and running 99.984% of the time, and in the first half of 2011 Google has delivered 99.99% availability—that’s less than 5 minutes of downtime, on average, per month. A new App Status Dashboard gives you accurate information faster, which can be used to evaluate Google products before investing on it.

Once your confidence is established, please drop us an email, and Softhinker would like to bring amazing Google Apps solutions to your organization!
