The purpose of our capacity management process is to ensure the continuous availability of services through capacity planning, monitoring and management.

This ensures that the required capacity for any given system is always available and that upgrades and improvements to the clients systems can be implemented to ensure that adequate capacity exists and resource requirements are planned for and controlled.

Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability Guaranteed availability 99.96%
Approach to resilience Atmolytics is built around a number of independent services connected together via an Enterprise Service Bus architecture. Services communicate using a durable message queue designed for reliability and robustness.
As an analytics platform can be expected to deal with large data sizes and high demand, managing system resources is a key challenge when designing a resilient system. Atmolytics allows for fine grain control in managing workloads. All processing is queued and asynchronous so that system resources are not overburdened. Furthermore, isolation between the tenants is maintained via separate databases
Finally, Atmolytics is built upon an enterprise database technology that is known for its resilience and stability. All dynamic system state is held in the database so can be easily backed up and restored if necessary.
Outage reporting We make a third-party monitoring status page and an email alert subscription available to customers

Identity and authentication

Identity and authentication
User authentication needed Yes
User authentication
  • 2-factor authentication
  • Public key authentication (including by TLS client certificate)
  • Identity federation with existing provider (for example Google Apps)
  • Username or password
Access restrictions in management interfaces and support channels When using identify federation, the user is authenticated against the specified provider (LDAP, OpenID Connect, OAuth). The rights that the user holds against the provider (for example, being the member of a specific Active Directory group) can then be mapped to access privileges within Atmolytics.
In the case of username / password authentication, accounts are issued on an as needed basis. The user's credentials are authenticated within Atmolytics. Passwords are never stored in clear text.
A user account can be disabled at any time via the system management interface.
Access restriction testing frequency At least every 6 months
Management access authentication
  • 2-factor authentication
