Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
We provide a detailed SLA for customers. Uptime levels apply to services provide by Tazio. The level of guaranteed uptime depends on the priority level of each item:
Priority level
Guaranteed uptime
1 99.9%
2 99.5%
3 99%

Measurement and penalties
Uptime is measured using the supplier’s automated systems, over each calendar month. It is calculated to the nearest minute, based on the number of minutes in the given month (for instance, a 31-day month contains 44,640 minutes).
If uptime for any item drops below the relevant threshold, a penalty will be applied in the form of a credit for the client.
This means the following month’s fee payable by the client will be reduced on a sliding scale.
The level of penalty will be calculated depending on the number of hours for which the service was unavailable, minus the downtime permitted by the SLA:
Priority level
Penalty per hour
(Pro-rated to nearest minute)
1 5% of total monthly fee
2 2% of total monthly fee
3 1% of total monthly fee
Approach to resilience
Full details of the design of our service are available on request.
Outage reporting
We provide users with advance notice of any planned outages via email. Any unplanned outages are reported by email and through our help desk.
