Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability

Approach to resilience
The Ajax service is hosted on AWS, multiple DNS systems are also deployed. The architecture which we use has full scaling capabilities. This ensures that redundancy or excessive demands can be met smoothly with no impact to the customer. We use fully scaling servers with reserves and have multiple health checks on each to minimise any disruption immediately. The system has been designed to be resilient and robust from the ground up with many health checks and fail forwards to ensure as much as possible that no disruption will occur to our clients emails.
Outage reporting
Each part of our server architecture has multiple health monitors to detect, report and resolve and outages. This is automatically reported to Aquilai's support team via multiple and systems.
