Warranties of Cloud/Managed Server Software

PN understands that the software managed on top of PN-provided hardware, network and delivery infrastructure is a critical component for service availability. As such, PN offers specific managed server software stacks and plans for its dedicated customer installations. In that spirit, PN guarantees:

Cloud / Managed Server Software will be Free from errors and interruptions 100.00% of the Time:

·        PN guarantees that all the dedicated managed server software that resides on the Dedicated Customer Installation will be always-on, free of configuration problems caused by PN, free of avoidable security risks, and that any configuration or software issues that cannot be automatically recovered by our monitoring tools will be looked into and repaired at no cost to Customer within 1 hour.

·        The always-on guarantee extends only to Managed Server Software running on Dedicated Infrastructure and described in a valid PN Service Order. The configuration problem guarantee extends to all aspects of software configuration managed directly and solely by PN. The security risk guarantee extends to all known related software security holes that have a stable vendor released patch publicly available, and for which it does not interfere with any software version dependencies as previously provided by the customer to PN. The security risk guarantee does not extend to Customer’s custom software or to recompilation of Customer’s custom software with patched, unsupported, third party libraries.

·        Managed Server Software downtime occurs when a managed process stops running, a client cannot successfully connect and the processes have not exceeded hardware or network limitations, or clients cannot successfully connect because software processes have exceeded hardware or network limitations as a result of PN’s improper configuration to reasonably optimal settings for the customer’s hardware and known software configuration, or PN has incorrectly configured the software such that the customer’s data is not available as the customer instructed.

In the event that the Managed Server Software is not repaired within 1 hour, the Customer will be eligible for an SLA credit of 5% of the monthly fees per hour of the affected services up to 100% of the monthly fees.

SLA Claims and Exceptions to Coverage Claiming an SLA Credit

In order to initiate a claim for a service credit, Customer must contact PN’s customer support department within seven (7) business days after the end of the month for which credit is requested. The service credit request must include the following information (a) customer name and contact information (b) the date and time that the problem started and was resolved (c) a description of the characteristics of the claimed outage or failed metric (d) ticket numbers or other documentation demonstrating that the customer notified PN of the claimed actionable issue PN will notify the customer via e-mail of the resolution of the request. If PN rejects the request for an SLA credit, a reason for the rejection will be detailed. If the request is approved, PN will issue all SLA credits to the Customer’s account that will appear on the next invoice issued. Multiple service credits cannot be overlapped on the same service (i.e. Failure to meet multiple metrics during the same period of time cannot be stacked up). In no circumstances will the total monthly credit exceed the total monthly charge actually paid by the customer for service during the month in question. Service credits will be credited against a Customer’s account and may not be received in the form of a refund, except that if any credits remain unused at the termination or expiration of the Agreement, PN will provide such credits to Customer in the form of a cash payment.
