Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability Identity is Always On, and so are we. We built the Okta service for high availability and a guaranteed uptime. https://support.okta.com/help/Documentation/Knowledge_Article/Okta-Support-Service-Level-Agreements-by-Customer-Success-Package
Approach to resilience Since we are aiming for billions of users and authentications, in 2014 we rolled out a new platform architecture that will get us to extreme scale. We call this architecture “cells”. A cell is a self-contained instance of the entire Okta service. Any fault in infrastructure is contained within a cell using a High Availability (HA) architecture, and even in case of an entire datacenter going down, another cell in a different geography takes ownership of the affected accounts within an hour.
Outage reporting You can see an updated status of Okta’s availability at all times by going to trust.okta.com. All users will also receive email alerts informing them of the problem, estimated outage time and a further email once fully restored.
