Service Metrics / Service Goal metrics
System uptime - 99.9% (8.75 hours of downtime/year).
Wednesdays from 12AM-8AM are reserved, weekly, for standard security patching.
If security-related circumstances are deemed appropriate, patching will be scheduled as soon as feasible following the ITS Change Management Critical Change processes. As an example, a 0-day vulnerability that put user data and/or the security of the platform at risk. Communications will be sent to all CloudApps users notifying them of the reasons for non-standard patching under these situations.
Every effort will be made to ensure this is a transparent action to applications on the platform.
