Quick Question on Industry Standard

>From my understanding there is a 99.97% up time value that most companies try 
and match.  Is this a hard and fast rule or is this a value that we all try 
and emulate as best as we can?  Do I have the value incorrect?  Is it higher 
or lower?  I had always thought that it was 99.97% but have not found 
anywhere to reference that figure, it was just via talking with others and 
checking available uptime statistics.   My understanding also takes into 
account that it does not include controlled downtime due to any maintenances. 

Any thoughts?
