Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability We use the AWS Cloud Services for its resilience and capacity. AWS commits to a monthly uptime percentage (defined below) of at least 99.95%. We have never had any unscheduled downtime using this platform.

We offer varying levels of support from business hours of 8am-6pm Monday-Friday, and for some customers we offer 24 hour support for business critical systems: this allows access to a member of our support staff at all times.
Approach to resilience All servers providing the service are placed into multiple availability zones, which are physically isolated and independent of one another. End-user access is through a load-balancer with health checks and auto-scaling of the underlying instances to ensure continuous monitoring and availability.
Outage reporting Monitoring is at one minute intervals and exceptions are raised through alerts, which generate email and text message warnings.
