EdgeNext SCDN Service Level Agreement

Last Updated: November 15, 2022

This EdgeNext SCDN Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) sets forth the service availability metrics and compensation plan for the Security CDN (“SCDN”) provided to you by EdgeNext, and your purchase and use of the Service is governed by the EdgeNext International Website Product Terms of Service (“Product Terms”) between EdgeNext and you. This SLA applies only to your purchase and use of services provided directly by EdgeNext for a fee and does not apply to any free services or trial services provided by EdgeNext.


I. Business Description

1. Security CDN is a security acceleration product that protects web services such as Websites/APPs/APIs from threats such as web attacks, exploits, system intrusions, tampering, backdoors and DDoS attacks. By directing traffic to the edge nodes for threat detection and disposal to ensure the security and availability of the source site.


II. Definition of Services

1. The service period refers to each natural month included in the service term of your SCDN service purchase, and service availability is accounted for separately by natural month.

2. Total minutes of Service Period = Total days in Service Period * 24 (hours) * 60 (minutes)

Assuming a 30-day Service Period for the month, the total number of Service Period minutes is 30 (days) * 24 (hours) * 60 (minutes) = 43,200 minutes

3. Service unavailability refers mainly to the following situations.

Service requests cannot reach the service server due to the SCDN itself.

The business server returns 4xx and 5xx status codes due to the SCDN itself.

4. Service Downtime = Service unavailability resolution time – service unavailability start time.

Downtime is calculated minute-by-minute, with less than 60 seconds counted as one minute. If the time for business failure to return to normal is less than 1 minute (i.e. Service Downtime for a duration of no more than 1 minute), the unavailability minutes will not be counted.


III. Service Availability

1. Service Availability means whether the product services provided by EdgeNext are serviceable of the Service Period.

2. Service Availability calculation formula

Service Availability = [(Total minutes of Service Period – Service Downtime) / Total minutes of Service Period] * 100%

3. Service Level Commitment: The availability of SCDN services shall be no less than 99.5%. If SCDN fails to meet the Service Level Commitment, you may receive compensation following Clause iv of this Agreement.

Assuming a 30-day Service Period for the month, Service Availability time for the Service Period = 30 days × 24 hours × 60 minutes × 99.5% = 42984 minutes, i.e. allow 43200 – 42984 = 216 minutes of Service Unavailability.

4. Exclusion of liability

Please be aware that the Service is unavailable for the following reasons and that the corresponding period of unavailability is NOT part of the calculation of the service unavailability and is NOT covered by EdgeNext’s Service Level Commitment.

Unavailability of the Service due to:

4.1 business shutdowns caused by an offence in your business;

4.2 your non-payment or arrears;
