Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
We provide Customer access to the Software-as-a-Service production application on a twenty-four hour, seven days a week (24x7) basis at a rate of 99.9 % (“SaaS Service Uptime Metric”).
Approach to resilience
"To ensure that infrastructures such as: Remote access, Active directory, DNS services, mail services, DB services, and mission critical customer facing applications such as: the Customer Authentication systems, and the Ticketing system are fully disaster recoverable, using Business Impact Analysis (BIA) MFI SaaS identified and prioritized system components and mission/business processes, and established the backup strategies required to enable both employees and customers to keep a communication channel open in case of any disruption.
In the standard Recovery Point Objective (RPO), MFI SaaS performs both on-site and off-site backups as follows: (Unless there is a special customer contractual requirement)
 On-site backup occurs daily and includes a local copy of production data followed by an offsite backup of the same production data to a remote site.
 Backup process takes place out of working hours per region.
When there is a service disruption, customers are notified in accordance with the MFI SaaS customer notification Service Level Objective (SLO) statements."
