This excludes planned outages, maintenance windows and events beyond the control of the Company. In addition to the standard Easymeeting maintenance windows, site-specific and service-specific changes may be coordinated with customers.
All Easymeeting video conferencing infrastructures are placed in secure and advanced colocation centers. These colocation centers are covered by their own SLA to provide 24×7 support.
System Monitoring, Maintenance and Support
The Company will manage and monitor the servers, which are part of the Easymeeting platform services, 24 hours 7 days a week. Off-hours monitoring is done electronically, alerting service personnel in case of failure. The Company will from time to time need to perform maintenance tasks on the platform in order to continuously deliver a high quality video conferencing service and for minimizing risk of a service failure. There are three levels of such maintenance categories:
Planned service maintenance is approved work that is planned and scheduled at least two weeks prior to the change. The Company will communicate to the appropriate audience a minimum of one week prior to the scheduled change.
Unplanned service maintenance is priority work that is unplanned due to an urgent repair to prevent failure. Unplanned service outages will be given priority (and communicated immediately) on a case-by-case basis depending on the type and urgency of the service failure.
An emergency service is defined as a service failure that affects the entire infrastructure or significant number of users that requires immediate repair. The Company reports all emergency services to the appropriate people and determines necessary communication steps. Emergency service announcements are communicated usually the day of the service failure. Off-hours service failures will be communicated the following business day.
