Credit For Service Level Agreement

By Mark, December 6, 2020

This service level agreement (“SLA”) regulates the use of all products and services (together the “services” offered by eSecureData Inc. (“eSecureData”) and subsidiaries for their customers (“You” or “Customer”). Defined terms have the meaning explained to them in the Terms of Use of eSecureData or as stated in the last part of this page. Given the extensive use and relative importance of Service Level Agreements (ASS) in a wide range of contexts, we provide an overview of the basics of ALS and what they should address in this blog post. ALS is an important part of any contract with a provider of technology-based products or services. Customers and suppliers use SLAs to set the performance expectations of a wide range of services, ranging from software and service (SaaS), maintenance, hosting, support or other cloud-based services to the delivery of physical goods. B. Termination for repeated non-compliance with the service level requirement over a pre-defined period With the increasing reliability of IT service delivery agreements, the availability obligations offered by IT service providers are generally increasingly approaching the elusive 100% requirement. Availability requirements of 99.99% are now achievable, but the higher the availability requirement, the higher the cost to the customer. The details of the commitment must be carefully considered.

Paradoxically, it is preferable, from the client`s point of view, to measure an availability target on the basis of working hours and hours of work rather than on a 24×7 basis. During a monthly measurement period, a 99% availability requirement on the basis of working/working time allows for 1.6 hours of downtime, while the authorized downtime on a 24×7 basis is 7.2 hours. One-day-a-month downtime are unlikely to be acceptable in practical circumstances. Medium measures operating time by checking the response of the HTTP EMbedly API. Every minute (1) a third-party service (currently pingdom.com) attempts to access the embedded API (z.B pro.embed.ly/1/preview?urls=google.com). If the service does not receive a successful HTTP response – that is, a 2XX or 3XX HTTP response code – this will be considered a one-minute downtime. The unavailability of the Embedded service is calculated from the date you did not notify this unavailability by means at sla@embed.ly. We have the right to change this method of measurement within a reasonable time.

Another approach is for the parties to agree to a termination threshold based on the amount of service credits incurred over a period of time, in order to interweav a right of termination in the event of a persistent default. This provides for an additional right of termination in cases where the service provider performs poorly on several occasions. However, in practice, it is not easy to set an appropriate level for the termination threshold and service providers will often attempt to set thresholds for flexibility in the event of a failure.
