This provides enhanced resiliency and availability to the customer.
This ensures that business have the highest level of continuity available for their service.
SLA 99.99%
Approach to resilience Call Recording Solution is enabled in a resilient manner by deploying multiple Virtual Machines (VMs) in a ‘highly available’ cluster, this provides Call Recording functionality migration should an individual VM's experience a failure and also ensure call data records (CDRs) will continue to be produced ensuring no loss of data. Additionally, the Call Recording Solutions in Dual Data Centre mode VMs are deployed across two geographically dispersed datacentres providing site resilience.
Multiple diverse SIP trunks are in place between Skype for Business mediation servers, PSTN interconnects and the SBCs allowing SIP trunk failure with negligible impact to service availability. In the event of an site failing, any Call Recording traffic will be redirected to the second data centre.
