Amazon Rds Service Level Agreement

The combination of customer acceptance, many new features and extensive operational experience has taken RDS (Relational Database Service) to a level where Amazon believes it is mature enough to be made accessible to all. Until now, users could access it through a beta testing program. The SLA operating time varies depending on the type of S3 service and the guaranteed operating time varies from 99.9% to 99%. So you need to consider some important things when trying to understand Amazon`s service level agreements. The most important advice I would offer is not to rely on service level agreements to guarantee the operating time of your applications. The ALS provides some guidance on the hours of operation you can expect, but the service credits offered, provided you remember to claim them, will likely be unlikely to compensate for the downtime your application is experiencing, and the likely business consequences in terms of lost productivity or even lost revenue. It`s also important to make sure your application infrastructure is observable – if you don`t recognize service outages, you can`t make claims against the ALA, so you can no longer get credits. You need to be able to back up your rights with log files, so make sure you know where to get them! In this article, we look at THE SLAs for some of the most commonly used AWS services, including EC2, RDS, EBS, ECS, Fargate and S3, to give you a taste of the offer, but this is only a guide and should not be considered a substitute for reading real SLAs for the services you want to use. AWS offers service credits for non-compliance with the ALS operating time, but it is important to note that they are not applied automatically. To obtain service credits for downtime, AWS customers must assert a right to credit by opening a business in the AWS assistance centre with the words “SLA credit requirement” in the subject line and specifying the details of the dates and times of defaults or failures for which you use secure credits with protocols and resource IDs for the services concerned. If service credits are available for loss, they are normally used as credit on future invoices for the same service.
