Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability We do not guarantee a specific level of availability, but achieve 99%. There is not currently an arrangement for refunding users.
Approach to resilience Spa currently runs across paired servers: one acting as a front-end (website); the other, as a database server. Each server is capable of switching its role, or a single server can hold both website and database if necessary. We have a rolling programme of upgrades to our web, data and development servers. We have the capability to add dedicated servers as needed, and have multiple servers available as contingency for both the website and data. As well as our live site at, we have a contingency site at
Outage reporting As well as UKFast’s monitoring, we use serviceuptime as an extra check that our servers are online. We let our user community know as soon as we are aware of any issues in this respect by email.
