Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
Oracle works to meet a Target System Availability Level of 99.5% of the production service, for the measurement period of one calendar month, commencing at Oracle’s activation of the production environment. Oracle measures the System Availability Level by dividing the difference between the total number of minutes in the monthly measurement period and any Unplanned Downtime by the total number of minutes in the measurement period, and multiplying the result by 100 to reach a percent figure.
Approach to resilience
Oracle deploys the Oracle Cloud Services on resilient computing infrastructure designed to maintain service
availability and continuity in the case of an incident affecting the services. Data centres retained by Oracle to host
Oracle Cloud Services have component and power redundancy with backup generators in place, and Oracle may
incorporate redundancy in one or more layers including network infrastructure, program servers, database servers,
and/or storage. Oracle periodically makes backups of Your production data in the Oracle Cloud Services for Oracle's sole use to
minimise data loss in the event of an incident. Backups are stored at the primary site used to provide the Oracle
Cloud Services, and may also be stored at an alternate location for retention purposes. A backup is typically
retained online or offline for a period of at least 60 days after the date that the backup is made.
Outage reporting
Oracle will provide You with access to a Customer notifications portal. This portal will provide metrics on the System
Availability Level for Cloud Services purchased under the ordering document. For those Cloud Services for which
such metrics are not available via the Customer notifications portal, Oracle will provide metrics on the System
Availability Level upon receipt of a Service Request submitted by You to Oracle requesting the metrics.

Information security policies and processes
Responsibility for our Information Security Policy lies with the Head of Information Security (HIS) and the UK Leadership Team.

We routinely identify all assets, assess the threats and risk levels and define what action needs to be taken to protect those assets. All security incidents, breaches, “near-misses” or concerns are required to be reported immediately to the HIS and Information Security Manager. In case of a breach, all critical IT systems are tied into a monitoring system which notifies IT personnel of any breach or anomaly. Our IT security and governance practices are reviewed annually by the Hitachi Ltd auditors. These reviews are cover all key systems utilising a framework based on the COBIT standards.
