I don't think that's all that relevant as a customer unless those SP&P 500 companies ending regularly involves their services being turned off suddenly without warning.

I imagine a lot of those companies ending is the result of acquisitions/mergers where the services continue uninterrupted and in the vast majority of cases where that isn't true, there's a warning that it will end.

You can expect a warning.. unless their database gets overwritten and there are no backups! https://hardware.slashdot.org/story/09/01/02/1546214/why-mir...

(Granted, not an S&P500 company, but those have been known to fuck up as well)
