Independence of resources We proactively monitor usage across our network and its infrastructure, ensuring that no part of our network is running at over 60% utilisisation. Once 60% is reached, we plan to implement new resources, ensuring that these are in place by 80% utilisation. This means our network is always below 80% utilisation, and that demand by all users does not affect performance of others.
