Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability Reasonable commercial efforts taken to make Magnum available at least 98% of the time in the aggregate in any Week, net of Permitted Downtime and net of other circumstances not reasonably in the control of Opus 2 (the “SLA”). “Permitted downtime” means scheduled, emergency or other reasonable maintenance which results in periodic service downtime. Opus 2 cannot and does not guarantee that access to the Website and/or the Magnum Software will be continuous or error free. Opus 2 will use reasonable commercial efforts to provide Customer and End Users with advance notice of any scheduled maintenance and to implement Permitted Downtime during off-peak hours. Opus 2 shall not be liable for any loss suffered as a result of the Website and/or the Magnum Software being unavailable (including, without limitation, as a result of Permitted Downtime).

Service Credits:
98% or more: None
95% to 98%: 10% of the weekly Magnum Access Fee
90% to 95%: 20%
Below 90%: 50%

Service Credits have no cash value; must be claimed through written notice to Opus 2 delivered within the calendar month after the month in which the SLA is not met; and will be applied (if timely claimed) against future Opus 2 invoice.
Approach to resilience The service is designed to be able to be brought up in a secondary region in order to deal with downtime in the primary data-center region (we use AWS so we get their resilience on top of design considerations). Data is copied to the secondary region every ten minutes. Typical service availability for AWS is 99.999%.
