Monthly availability rate: 99.5%
“Monthly availability rate” should be understood as: the total number of minutes in the month considered as a deduction made from the number of minutes of unavailability over the month concerned. The total is divided by the total number of minutes in the month.
“Unavailability” should be understood to mean: the loss of access to and inability to reboot the VPS, for more than three (3) consecutive minutes from the moment an Incident ticket has been opened by the Customer.

The Service level agreements made above are subject to the exclusions below, and on the conditions that in the event of unavailability the Customer shall collaborate with us to reestablish the Service.
This agreement does not in any way concern the availability of elements that are under the Customer’s control, such as software or applications installed on the VPS and used by the Customer.
This service level agreement is not applicable in the event that we are unable to perform the technical operations required to check the service state due to the Customer’s configuration of their VPS.
If we confirms that a VPS is available and in good working order, we are released from the obligation under the SLA. However, in this case, upon the Customer’s request, we agrees to assist them in identifying the cause of the issues found by the Customer.
If we identify an Unavailability, we complete the diagnostic and works in collaboration with the Customer to reestablish availability.

If the service level set out above is not reached, the Customer can request the following credits :
• Unfulfilled availability rate:
(a) GE-OPENVZ* Services:
Credit equal to 10% of the monthly amount paid by the Customer for the month during which the components were affected by the Unavailability, if the availability rate identified is equal or lower than 97.5%.

Credit equal to 10% of the monthly amount paid by the Customer for the month during which the components were affected by the Unavailability, if the availability rate identified is equal or lower than 99.5%.
