Cloud APIM Service Level Agreement (SLA)

This Service Level Agreement between Cloud APIM and the customer outlines the level of service, the process by which the customer can request technical support or submit a claim for not meeting the service level and request credit for the period of time service level was not met.

Service Commitment

Cloud APIM takes great pride in providing a highly fault-resilient service with automatic recovery in case of system failures. We ensure that the service is free of software glitches and that our service is reliable. We do provide technical support for users with access to the system. Non-technical support for issues related to billing, credit due to outages, etc. is also provided.


We guarantee at least 99% availability on all dedicated plans. In case of an outage larger than that, Cloud APIM will provide the customer with service credits equaling an amount of 50% of the instance’s subscription cost.

Response time

For critical support issues our on-call engineers are available 24/7. For these types of issues, we will respond to a request within 30 minutes.

For critical support issues our on-call engineers are available during office hours. For these types of issues, we will respond to a request within 2 hours.

Resolution time

  • Urgent server-down issues will be solved within 24 hours.
  • Medium priority issues will be fixed within 48 hours.
  • Low priority routine issues will be completed within 72 hours.

How to Claim a SLA Credit

In the unlikely event that Cloud APIM fails to meet the above-mentioned uptime commitment, Cloud APIM shall offer service credits as compensation to the customer.

Request for an SLA credit must be submitted in writing, within 30 days from the outage to which they refer, via email to

Payment of Compensation

The compensation will be in the form of Cloud APIM usage credits and may not be exchanged for cash or other forms of payment. All outage periods and compensation are calculated by Cloud APIM and are based on the plan that the customer is using. Once we’ve verified the outage, we’ll issue an SLA payment as a credit to be used against your invoice for the following month.

Exclusions to the Uptime Guarantee

Cloud APIM does all that we can to keep your service up and running. However, there are a few things that we can’t be held accountable for. Thus, they are excluded from our SLA. The following events will be exempt from Cloud APIM's availability guarantee:

  • Scheduled interruptions or network/hardware maintenance
  • Customer triggered redeployment (restart)
  • Load caused on the systems by client queries or usage (including, but not limited to, inaccurate installations and software configurations, abuse of the network, abuse of hardware or overuse of resources)
  • Failures or termination of the instance by the cloud providers used by Cloud APIM to implement the service
  • Failures due to hostile or abusive actions by third parties such as denial-of-service attacks that violate the Agreement
  • The system is not available due to technology failures on customer's side (network, hardware and software, third-party equipment)
  • Routing or other faults caused by intermediary or external networks
  • Errors caused by factors outside of Cloud APIM’s reasonable control
  • Features or Services designated Alpha or Beta or deprecated
  • Features or Services excluded from the SLA
