Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability Techmodal are committed to work with clients to plan for any periods of service unavailability. Techmodal will always work to ensure any unplanned outage is resolved within service level agreement thresholds.
Approach to resilience The service provided by Techmodal is developed on an Oracle Enterprise Database and therefore benefits from the investment Oracle have made in resilience. Our hardware is also fully mirrored with failover servers, which are available in the instance of hardware failure.
Outage reporting For outages longer than an agreed threshold with the client (in minutes), an outage process is entered with an outage notification provided by email to agreed users. Outage updates are then provided hourly until the outage is resolved. Upon resolution, a reason for outage report is compiled for the client, providing details of the occurrence and future remedial actions being taken to avoid recurrence.
