Service Level Agreement

Clause 1 - Subject Matter

This Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) applies to the Services set forth in the Order Form. The SLA guarantees eligible customers reimbursement of (part of) their monthly datacenter services fee (“SLA Credit”) in case Version Next Technologies did not perform to the performance metrics as defined in this SLA (“SLA Metrics”).

The SLA Metrics are either measured on a calendar month basis (“Monthly Metric”) or on an event basis “Event Metric”).


Clause 2 - Service Delivery

The Services will be delivered 24 hours a day, 365 days a year during the term of the Agreement. The Services will be considered available to the Customer as of the Commencement Date indicated in the Order Form.


Clause 3 - Occurrence Handling

In case of an Occurrence (as such term is defined in Annex 1), Version Next Technologies will notify the Customer using the designated contact persons and their contact details as specified by the Customer on the Order Form.
In the event of a Customer identifying an Occurrence, he can contact the Version Next Technologies Support team by email on the e-mail addresses indicating in the Customer portal (contact email address for colocation services).

The power has a guaranteed Uptime of 99.99%.
See below.
If there is a power outage as a result of which the guaranteed Uptime is not achieved, the following SLA

More than 10%

Calculator Monthly Metrics:
T1: Time that service has to be available according to the SLA (excluding circumstances mentioned in Clause 4 and 5)
T2: Time that service was available (excluding circumstances mentioned in Clause 4 and 5) Uptime % = (T1-T2)/T1 * 100%

The guaranteed Uptime is calculated as a percentage. This percentage is the percentage of the month (without circumstances mentioned in Clause 4 and 5) that the service was working (T2), based on the total time of the month (without maintenance windows and errors caused by Customer) that the service has to be available (T1).

In order to determine the breach of the guaranteed Service Levels, Version Next Technologies’s systems and records are leading.

Clause 5 - Exceptions

There will be no breaches of the guaranteed Service Levels set forth in Clause 4 and the Customer will not be entitled to SLA Credits in connection with such failure to meet the guaranteed Service Levels under Clause 4 which is caused by or associated with any of the following:

  • Failure to meet the guaranteed Service Levels caused by the Customer or the Customer’s
  • Equipment or facilities; or
  • Preventive or scheduled Maintenance; or
  • Failure of any third party equipment; or
  • Emergency Maintenance; or
  • Circumstances beyond Version Next Technologies’s reasonable control.

Clause 6 - Exclusive Remedy

In case Version Next Technologies fails to meet the guaranteed Service Levels under Clause 4, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that the relevant SLA Credit(s) set out under Clause 4 shall be the Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for such failure, save to the extent that the guaranteed service levels are not met and damage to the Customer Equipment has been caused as a result of gross negligence or wilful intent on the part of Version Next Technologies.
In case of an Occurrence where both the Airco and Power SLA are breached, only the SLA will apply that grants Customer the biggest compensation for such Occurrence. In no event can Customer cumulate a claim under the Airco SLA and the Power SLA for the same event.

Clause 7 - Claims Procedure

All claims under this SLA must be submitted to Version Next Technologies within seven (7) calendar days of the event that caused the SLA breach (Event Metric) or month (Monthly Metric). The Customer must submit the following information with the claim:

  • Customer’s name
  • Rack ID’s
  • Date and time of the Occurrence
The Customer must submit the required information by electronic mail to [email protected] Next Technologies.com. Version Next Technologies will acknowledge receipt of a claim within seven (7) calendar days and will review all claims within ten (10) calendar days after receipt thereof and inform the Customer by electronic mail whether the appropriate compensation will be issued or whether the claim is rejected specifying the basis for rejection. The amount of compensation allocated to the Customer will be subtracted from the monthly fee by means of a credit note that will be issued for the next billing period.

Clause 8 - SLA Credit Limitation

Aggregated SLA Credits in a given month will be limited to 50 (fifty percent) % of the monthly recurring service fee for rack space.
