Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
RingCentral's platform has been designed from the ground up with high availability and geo-redundancy in mind. RingCentral guarantees up to 99.999% service uptime. We will share on financial compensation adjustments associated with under-performance upon request. RingCentral invests in a world-class Network Operations Centre, which is monitored 24/7/365 by highly skilled engineers to support up to 99.999% availability.
Approach to resilience
RingCentral's architecture has multiple levels of inter & intra redundancy built in to it. It's designed to run in an active-active mode and seamlessly switches to the available data centre in the event of any failure. Service failover is tested regularly during system maintenance windows. In case of a local internet failure, all calls can fail over to mobile devices.
Outage reporting
RingCentral's network operations centre (NOC) operates 24/7/365 to ensure optional system configuration and service availability. Our engineers continuously monitor systems, metrics and alarms. RingCentral uses 5 internal alarm levels to ensure reliable operations (presented here from lowest to highest importance): Informational (take note, no direct action results); Warning (watch and take action as needed); Critical (immediately fix and/or escalate); Service Outage (immediately fix and escalate); Disaster (immediate fix and escalate through a live conference call regardless of day or time). RingCentral customers are immediately notified of issues and outages affecting their service. Customers are also notified when the issue is resolved, what the issue was and how it was resolved.
