Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability SLA availability is based on account level

Service Credits are calculated as a percentage of the total charges paid by you for the stack for the billing cycle in which the SLA was not met, see terms and conditions document for more details.

Visibility provided on our public status page and your dashboard
Approach to resilience ELK Stacks are highly resilient by design as their components horizontally scale across different isolated resources and datacentre locations. ELK Stacks can remain operational when any of the resources fail. Active monitoring detects failures and auto heals the stack by allocating resources and restoring resiliency.

Our platform is highly available by design and geographically distributed across multiple regions.
Outage reporting Global outages are displayed on a public status page with incident details and estimated resolution time.

Stack outage reports can be customised to alert users in a variety of different ways including webhooks, emails, slack, pagerduty and many more.
