Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability The Contact Centre platform has been designed from the ground up with high availability and geo-redundancy in mind and provides 99.99% service uptime. We will share on financial compensation adjustments associated with underperformance upon request. All data is stored and processed in world-class data centres highly secure running in an active-active configuration to provide business continuity in any situation.
Approach to resilience The Contact Centre platform's architecture has multiple levels of inter & intra redundancy built into it. It’s designed to run in an active/active mode and seamlessly switches to the available data centre in the event of any failure. Service failover is tested regularly during system maintenance windows.
Outage reporting RingCentral’s network operations center (NOC) operates 24/7/365 to ensure optimal system configuration and service availability. Our engineers continuously monitor countless systems, metrics, and alarms. RingCentral uses 5 internal alarm levels to ensure reliable operations (presented here from lowest to highest importance): -Informational (take note, no direct action results) -Warning (watch and take action as needed) -Critical (immediately fix and/or escalate) -Service Outage (immediately fix and escalate) -Disaster (immediately fix and escalate through a live conference call regardless of day or time). RingCentral customers are immediately notified of issues and outages affecting their service. Customers are also notified when the issue is resolved, what the issue was, and how it was resolved.
