Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability Whilst PayDashboard intends that the Services should be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, it is possible that on occasions the Services or Website may be unavailable, in order to permit maintenance or other development activity to take place. If for any reason PayDashboard has to interrupt the Services for longer periods then PayDashboard would normally expect, PayDashboard will use reasonable endeavours to publish in advance details of such activity on the Website. No refunds available.
Approach to resilience Data is geo-replicated to a secondary Azure region. In the event of an outage the service would failover to the secondary region. We perform disaster recovery (DR) drills to simulate a full outage of the primary region and initiate failover to the secondary region.
Outage reporting Outages are displayed on our login screen to the service, and communicated via email or via support team. Triggers are in place for after 60 minutes.
