The Company’s backup solution will function as follows:

  • Off-Site backup storage – HOTBackup is able to communicate with the Company’s off-site storage repository, allowing the Client Data to be backed up and restored to and from the Company with 99.9% uptime.

The Company uses a variety of external and internal monitoring devices for the purpose of maintaining and measuring service availability and functionality.  The Company reserves the right to periodically change the measurement points and methodologies it uses without notice.


  1. Scheduled or emergency maintenance or upgrades announced at least 1 hour in advance, provided that such maintenance does not continuously last more than 1 business day.
  2. Failure of third party software, including any software licensed by the Company, such as Veeam Backup & Replication, StorageCraft ShadowProtect, etc…
  3. The software initialisation, maintenance, or reboot sequences of any third party software that causes services to be unavailable.
  4. Failure of any software provided by the Client to the Company, including but not limited to operating systems, applications, and software licenses.
  5. Failure of third party network circuits or Internet connections or services, unless such failure is caused solely by the Company or our contracted networking providers.
  6. Failure caused by infrastructure outside of the Company’s control (including failure of any equipment not owned by the Company), or failure of software running on infrastructure outside of the control of the Company.  For instance, backup failures due to the failure of the operating system of a user’s computer that is being backed up.
  7. Failures caused by the misconfiguration or incorrect settings of any product or software that connects to or communicates with the Company’s backup services.
  8. The Client not knowing their password, passphrase, or encryption key, or not being able to recover their passphrase or encryption key for any reason.
  9. False or incorrect outages resulting from errors made by any measurement system.
  10. Acts or omissions of those not under the direct control of the Company, including without limitation, any negligence, willful misconduct, or misuse of applicable contractual agreements.
  11. Circumstances beyond the Company’s reasonable control.   Such circumstances include, by example but not limitation, force majeure events, war, terrorist activities, acts of governmental bodies, acts of God, sabotage, attacks by hackers, fire, flood, or strike or other labour disturbance.

Nevertheless, the Company will make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the services are not interrupted by any of the foregoing reasons.


The Company reserves the right to update this SLA at any time without notice by posting an updated version.  The terms within the Master Services Agreement also apply to any Solution.  Where any conflicts occur, the terms and clauses as defined in this document take precedence.  The SLA that was current at the time of any failure incident will govern.
