Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
The level availability is 99.5%. Our payment of Service Credits shall be your sole remedy in full and final settlement of Our liability in respect of any failure to meet or delay in meeting Service Levels.
Approach to resilience
One of the many advantages of Jive’s next-generation platform on AWS (Amazon Web Services) Cloud is its high availability infrastructure. AWS’s cloud infrastructure is designed to meet the highest standards of high availability and resiliency. Many of the world’s largest companies and institutions rely on AWS Cloud to power mission-critical applications. The AWS Cloud infrastructure is built around Regions and Availability Zones (AZ’s). AWS Regions provide multiple, physically separated and isolated Availability Zones which are connected with low latency, high throughput, and highly redundant networking. A disaster event (e.g., fire, flood, earthquake, tornado, hurricane) in one AZ will not impact any other AZ. Latency between AZ’s is generally less than 1-2ms, allowing for all AZ’s in an AWS region to be treated as one big data center. All Jive services are deployed to at least two (usually three) AZ’s within a region. All data is replicated between at least two AZ’s. Databases can be failed over in 1-3 minutes.
Outage reporting
Published outages via alerting service, with RCA provided no more than 5 days after outage.
