A more important metric is how critical the web presence is to the
company. For Amazon, say, it's pretty critical, so what they do is
likely to be interesting: if their site is broken they're not making
any money. For Toyota, say, well, an outage would probably be
embarrassing, but it's not anything like as critical to them.
Unfortunatly I suspect that with web stuff as with other stuff, the
answer is that it entirely depends. I am endlessly horrified by the
poor state of software that is really critical to large companies.
