Global Accelerator (GA) Service Specific Terms

1. Service Unavailability

A Global Accelerator is considered unavailable if it fails to establish connections with its endpoints or packets are lost for one or more consecutive minutes.

2. Disclaimers

This SLA does not apply if service unavailability is caused by any abnormality described in the General Terms or either of the following:

  • Network failures, device faults, or configuration changes in non-Huawei devices, including but not limited to network carriers' line faults;
  • Your applications are attacked by, including but not limited to DDoS attacks;
  • Your applications are abnormal.

3. Service Availability

A Global Accelerator's Service Availability refers to the availability of the network between the Huawei Cloud access points and the Huawei Cloud private networks. The network availability between the Huawei Cloud access points and your terminals is guaranteed by the carrier from whom you leased a private line.

The service availability in each service cycle is calculated using the following formula:

Service Availability in each Service Cycle = (Total Time of Service Duration - Service Unavailable Duration) / Total Time of Service Duration x 100%.

Huawei Cloud will make all efforts to ensure the service availability of at least 99.95% in each service cycle.

4. Service Credits

If the service availability falls below 99.95% due to reasons caused by Huawei Cloud, Huawei Cloud will offer service credits based on the degree of the unavailability:

Service Availability

Service Credit

99.0% ≤ Service Availability < 99.95%

10% of Monthly Service Fee

95% ≤ Service Availability < 99%

25% of Monthly Service Fee

Service Availability < 95%

100% of Monthly Service Fee
