Business SLA

When your knowledge base is business critical, we appreciate that you are taking a big risk by trusting a 3rd party to maintain the availability and performance of your knowledge base. That's why we guarantee a 99.5% uptime for customers on the Business plan. 

How it works

  • We guarantee a 99.5% monthly uptime for customers on the Business plan.
  • Customers can monitor our uptime on our status page and view historical data.
  • If we fail to meet that level of service for any month, Business plan customers will automatically receive a credit on their next billing cycle corresponding to the amount of downtime.
    • Less than 99.5% uptime in a given month (more than 3 hours and 39 minutes downtime) = 1 week credit
    • Less than 98.5% uptime in a given month (more than 10 hours 57 minutes downtime) = 2 week credit
    • Less than 97.5% uptime in a given month  (more than 18 hours 16 minutes downtime) = 1 month credit
