Effective Date: August 30, 2022
This SLA applies to the availability of Striim’s Cloud and Streamshift Services (collectively, “Services” and each is a “Service”).
As described in this SLA, Striim offers certain Service Levels to its Cloud and Streamshift Services customers who enter into Order Forms which specifically provide for and reference this SLA (collectively “Customers”, and each is a “Customer”).
API means Striim’s Application Programming Interface used to programmatically communicate with the Services.
Downtime is when Customer cannot access the Striim Services and Striim’s APIs, provided that such downtime does not fall under the Exceptions defined in section III.
Total number of minutes in a given calendar month.
Total number of Downtime minutes in a given calendar month.
Monthly Availability Percentage
Monthly Availability Percentage is defined as the difference between Calendar Minutes and the Downtime Minutes, divided by Calendar minutes and multiplied by one hundred.
II. Striim Service Level
The Monthly Availability Percentage for the Service is ninety-nine and five-tenths percent (99.5%) (“Service Level”). If the Service fails to meet the Service Level in a given calendar month (“Service Level Failure”), then as Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy, Customer shall receive the applicable percentage of Customer’s monthly bill for the calendar month in which the Service Level Failure occured (“Service Credit Percentage”). The Service Credit Percentage will be credited against Customer’s usage in the calendar month following the Service Level Failure; provided that Customer requests Service Credit Percentage within twenty-one (21) days from the calendar month in which the Service Level Failure occurred. Service Credit Percentage may not be exchanged for, or converted to, monetary amounts.
Service Credit Percentage Table
|Monthly Availability Percentage ||Service Credit Percentage |
|Under 99.5% but greater than or equal to 98.0% ||5% |
|Under 98.0% but greater than or equal to 95.0% ||10% |
|Under 95.0% ||25% |
In June, Customer used a total of 10,000 credits in Striim’s Cloud Service. During that month there were 900 Downtime Minutes. For the 900 Downtime Minutes that the Striim Cloud Service experienced, Customer is credited back 1,000 credits (10% of 10,000) against Customer’s usage of Striim’s Cloud Service in July.
For purposes of calculating the Downtime Minutes, the following are “Exceptions” to the Service Level , and neither the Services will be considered experiencing any Downtime nor any Service Level Failure be deemed to occur in connection with Customer’s failure to access the Services that is due, in whole or in part, to any of the following:
Service upgrade and maintenance
Upgrades and maintenance scheduled or otherwise (including maintenance initiated by the Customer, scheduled or unscheduled emergency maintenance by Striim or third party providers) are excluded from the Downtime Minutes.

Service downtime due to schedule upgrade or maintenance may not take more than 24 hours per month.
