Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability We can provide at least 99.9% availability. As part of a Call Off agreement, Capgemini can agree service credit arrangements for situations where availability levels are not met.
Approach to resilience Solution can be deployed across multiple sites including both active/active and active/passive designs (depending on modules). Disaster recovery can be managed from site to site. On each site, each technical element and functional module can rely on local redundancy, allowing service continuity (network/security clustering, server clustering, software clustering when applicable). Virtualisation can be used to improve flexibility and availability of services. Specific application modules can be developed to improve resiliency and recovery. Specific application modules can be developed to allow degraded operation without service disruption.
Outage reporting Communications are handled via the incident manager (according to ITIL standards)

Strict password policy is imposed (except for ID federation provided by third parties).
