Hello, How are you today? I hope you are enjoying these hollidays! I would like to know something about your Tier, I had to read about Datacenter Tiers and Data Pipes, and Tier 1 is the slowest Datacenter Tier Certification, Tier 1 = Non-redundant capacity components (single uplink and servers). Tier 2 = Tier 1 + Redundant capacity components. Tier 3 = Tier 1 + Tier 2 + Dual-powered equipments and multiple uplinks. Tier 4 = Tier 1 + Tier 2 + Tier 3 + all components are fully fault-tolerant including uplinks, storage, chillers, HVAC systems, servers etc. Everything is dual-powered. Data Center Availability According To Tiers The levels also describes the availability of data from the hardware at a location as follows: Tier 1: Guaranteeing 99.671% availability. Tier 2: Guaranteeing 99.741% availability. Tier 3: Guaranteeing 99.982% availability. Tier 4: Guaranteeing 99.995% availability. My question is: Which level are your Cloud Servers and Data Pipes of each plans? Thanks!

We only use Tier 4 certified datacenters to put our hardware in. They are actually certified and audited to meet that standard.
