Service Credits

Service Credits are calculated as a percentage of the monthly bill for the affected file system that did not meet its SLA. The Service Credits provided to you under this SLA will be provided to you only in connection with your use of the Included Services from Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) region. This SLA does not authorize you to receive any Service Credits from any other Amazon Web Services regions. We will apply any Service Credits only against future payments otherwise due from you for the applicable Included Service. At our discretion, we may issue the Service Credit to the bank card you used to pay for the billing cycle in which the Unavailability occurred. Service Credits will not entitle you to any refund or other payment from us. A Service Credit will be applicable and issued only if the credit amount for the applicable monthly billing cycle is greater than one Renminbi (¥1 Renminbi). Service Credits may not be transferred or applied to any other account. Unless otherwise provided in the Agreement, your sole and exclusive remedy for any unavailability, non-performance, or other failure by us to provide the Included Services is the receipt of a Service Credit (if eligible) in accordance with the terms of this SLA.

Credit Request and Payment Procedures

To receive a Service Credit, you must submit a claim by opening a case in the Amazon Web Services Support Center. You may not combine or stack claims under the SLAs for a particular Included Service file system. Your credit request must be received by us by the end of the second billing cycle after which the incident occurred and must include the information specified below:

  1. the words “SLA Credit Request” in the subject line;
  2. the billing cycle with respect to which you are claiming Service Credits together with the dates and times of each Unavailability incident that you are claiming;
  3. the File System IDs, if applicable, of the affected file systems; and
  4. your request logs that document the claimed unavailability (any confidential or sensitive information in these logs should be removed or replaced with asterisks).

 If your claim under the applicable SLA is confirmed by us as valid, then we will issue the Service Credit to you within one billing cycle following the month in which your request is confirmed by us. Your failure to provide the request and other information as required above will disqualify you from receiving a Service Credit.

Amazon FSx SLA Exclusions

The respective SLAs do not apply to any unavailability, suspension or termination of an Included Service, or any other Included Service performance issues, directly or indirectly: (i) caused by factors outside of our reasonable control, including any force majeure event or Internet access or related problems beyond the demarcation point of the Included Service; (ii) that result from any actions or inactions of you; (iii) that result from your equipment, software or other technology; (iv) that result from you not following the current technical documentation applicable to the Included Services (including the applicable developer guides) as posted by us and updated by us from time to time on the Amazon Web Services China Site; or (v) that result from a suspension or termination of your right to use the Included Service in accordance with the Agreement. If availability is impacted by factors other than those used in our Monthly Uptime Percentage or Single-AZ Uptime Percentage calculations, then we may issue a Service Credit considering such factors at our discretion.

Definitions

  • “AZ” means an isolated location within an Amazon Web Services region identified by a letter identifier following the region code (e.g., cn-northwest-1).
  • “Monthly Uptime Percentage” for a given Multi-AZ File System is calculated by subtracting from 100% the percentage of minutes during the month in which the Multi-AZ File System is Unavailable. If you have been running a Multi-AZ File System for only part of the month, that file system is assumed to be 100% available during the portion of the month that it was not running.
  • A “Multi-AZ File System” is an Amazon FSx for Windows File Server or Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP Multi-AZ file system that has a pair of file servers concurrently deployed in an active-standby failover configuration across multiple AZs.
  • An “Operation” is an instruction that allows you to access your data in your Included Service file system.
  • A “Service Credit” is a Renminbi credit, calculated as set forth above, that we may credit back to an eligible Included Service account.
  • A “Single-AZ File System” is:
    1. An Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP Single-AZ file system that has a pair of file servers deployed in an active-standby failover configuration in only one AZ; or
    2. An Amazon FSx for Windows File Server Single-AZ file system that has a single file server deployed in only one AZ; or
    3. An Amazon FSx for Lustre Single-AZ file system that has a cluster of file servers deployed in only one AZ.
  • “Single-AZ Uptime Percentage” for a given Single-AZ File System is calculated by subtracting from 100% the percentage of minutes during the month in which the Single-AZ File System is Unavailable. If you have been running a Single-AZ File System for only part of the month, that file system is assumed to be 100% available during the portion of the month that it was not running.
  • “Unavailable” and “Unavailability” mean that all Operations fail for your Multi-AZ File System or Single-AZ File System, respectively, during a 1-minute interval.
