Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability Leidos agrees appropriate service levels with customers to ensure the hosted, managed services meet the customers’ requirements. We ensure we have the appropriate underpinning contracts and Operating Level Agreements (OLAs) in place to ensure we can deliver the levels of availability that are necessary.
Approach to resilience Our hosting partners’ services are deployed across a number of sites, regions and zones. Each zone is designed to eliminate single points of failure (such as power, network and hardware). We design solutions to ensure they span multiple sites, regions or zones to ensure service continuity should a failure occur.

Each datacenter is built to physical, environmental, and security standards in an active-active configuration, employing an n+1 redundancy model, ensuring system availability in the event of component failure. Components (N) have at least one independent backup component. All datacenters are online and serving traffic. In case of failure, there is sufficient capacity to enable traffic to be load-balanced to the remaining sites.
Outage reporting All outages will be reported via the platforms’ Service Status page and the notifications service within the platform providers’ portals. Outages are identified as planned maintenance, emergency maintenance, and platform issues. In addition, the designated Leidos Service Delivery Manager contact customers proactively as appropriate. Leidos develops custom portals for customers use.
