Our SLA is 99.99%. To find out more about our SLA, including how we compensate, read more here.
We monitor all services 24/7/365 and our personnel are automatically alerted on any service anomalies. Additionally, Aiven provides a basic level of support without a separate charge through email and chat. Aiven also offers three additional support tiers for an additional price. Find out more about response times and prices.
We offer most technical features in all tiers, however some features may be missing from the lowest tiers due to lower VM resources. The main difference between the tiers is the amount of dedicated VMs per cluster. The more VMs there are, the more resistant the service is for any anomalies. Our Startup tier is typically recommended for test environments, Business for staging environments and Premium for production environments.
