100% Uptime Guarantee
Sadeem offers a 100% uptime guarantee via this Service Level Agreement based on network and host node availability. Collectively, these guarantees may be referred to as the "SLA." This SLA is provided as a supplement to the Hosting Terms of Services You agreed to in becoming a Sadeem customer, which is hereby incorporated by reference as an indispensable part of this SLA.
This uptime guarantee is applicable on a per-service-item basis and is not applied to Your entire invoice. For example, if You have fifty (50) servers with Us, and one (1) of those servers experiences downtime, any credit due to You under this uptime guarantee would be proportional to that one (1) server's downtime and not Your entire account with Us. This uptime guarantee does not apply to the accessibility of Sadeem's web property, DNS servers, API, or control panel
Packet Loss and Latency
Sadeem does not proactively monitor the packet loss or transmission latency of specific customers. Sadeem does, however, proactively monitor the aggregate packet loss and transmission latency within its LAN and WAN. In the event that Sadeem discovers (either from its own efforts or after being notified by You) that You are experiencing packet loss in excess of one percent (1%) ("Excess Packet Loss") between your instance and one hop from Sadeem's border router(s) (first hop of egress providers router) and You notify Sadeem via a support ticket (or Sadeem has notified You of an event), Sadeem will take all actions necessary to determine the source of the Excess Packet Loss/Latency.
The uptime guarantee ONLY applies to network and instance availability during normal operation. The uptime guarantee does NOT apply to server-side software uptime. Any outage due to server software, operating systems, improper configurations, denial of service attack against your instance, instance suspension, instance paused/halted for any reason, or any other non-network or non-"host node" outage, for any reason and whether or not such outage is caused by Us due to upgrading, troubleshooting or performing any other tasks, is not subject to this uptime guarantee. The guarantee does NOT apply when a scheduled maintenance occurs with a minimum of twenty-four (24) hour notice or in the event a time critical patch/update must be applied as long as the outage/packetloss does not exceed ten (10) minutes.
Furthermore, none of the guarantees in this SLA may be combined. For example, a hardware outage that also disrupts network activity will not qualify You for two (2) separate credits. If for example, a hardware outage was the basis for the connectivity loss, the entire event will count as one single outage for the purpose of determining applicable credit.
In accordance with the procedure outlined below, you must initiate a support ticket and request that a credit be applied to your account. Merely initiating a support ticket related to an outage will not result in any credit to your account. Initiating a support ticket and requesting a credit is what triggers an event for any potential credits; however, Sadeem must still determine, in its sole discretion, whether or not an eligible outage has occurred. If Sadeem determines that an eligible outage has occurred, then the ticket you generated will be used to generate a credit using the table below:
|Outage Time Frame||Credit Amount|
|Less than 9 minutes||1 Hours|
|10 – 59 minutes||2 Hours|
|60 – 119 minutes||5 Hours|
|120 – 239 minutes||10 Hours|
|240 – 419 minutes||20 Hours|
|420+ minutes||60 Hours|
