This Agreement is intended as the complete statement of the terms of the agreement between the Company and the Service Accomtec relating to subject matter hereof. This agreement supersedes all previous proposals, oral and written, and all negotiations, conversations or discussions heretofore had between the parties relating to this Agreement.
This section describes in details the service specific terms of services available to be delivered to the customer by Accomtec.
The core part of the service is the provision of a remote backup center to where the customer can backup their data. This remote backup center will be located inside a secure data center where all standard data center facilities, including redundancy and backup power supply, 24-hour professional monitoring & surveillance and controlled access to the premises, are provided. Accomtec will setup a primary backup server inside the backup center to provide online backup services to the customer. The primary backup server will use a Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) system to introduce redundancy to the data storage system. To provide an extra level of protection, the customer’s backup data stored on the primary backup server will be replicated to another independent secondary backup server (also utilizing RAID). In the event when the primary backup server goes down or becomes unavailable for whatever reasons, there is always a secondary backup server available to pick up the primary server’s role. Customer’s backup data are still inside the remote backup center.
To backup data stored inside a computer to the remote backup center mentioned above, the backup software, Accomtec Online Backup Manager (hereinafter, Accomtec OBM), must be installed to the computer. The customer will install Accomtec OBM onto all computers that contain data to be backed up and the customer will setup Accomtec OBM to backup the required data to the remote backup center. The customer will choose a password that will be used to access Accomtec OBM and also to encrypt all data before being sent to the remote backup center. The customer is responsible for remembering this password. The encryption password is required to restore data. The encryption password applies to the data that is backed up at that given time; if the customer changes the password then multiple password(s) may be required to restore data. The customer can change the data retention policy to dictate how long to keep files that have been changed, deleted, or removed. The default retention policy is seven (7) days. The customer can use the scheduling feature of Accomtec OBM to schedule backups to run unattended. After Accomtec OBM has been setup correctly, Accomtec OBM will backup Customer’s data to the remote backup center automatically.
For each completed backup job, the backup server will send a backup report, with a detailed listing of all files that have been backed up within the backup job, to the customer’s designated point of contact by email. This report will show all unexpected errors encountered during the backup operation. If any error has happened to the backup operation, the customer will be notified of this problem in a timely manner and will be able to correct the problem in due course. Also, if a scheduled backup job has not been run as scheduled at the scheduled time, a missed backup report will be sent to the customer’s designated point of contact by email to report this problem. The customer is responsible for its own network functionality and internet connection. The computer(s) that run Accomtec OBM must be on (not in standby) and connected to the internet in order for a backup to take place. The backup services are not intended to be a comprehensive disaster recovery solution. Except as set forth in this SLA, Accomtec makes no claims regarding the availability or performance of the backup services.
Software upgrades fix problems and provide enhancements to the backup services. When a software upgrade becomes available, the customer will be notified by email or via the support web site. The notice includes a description of the upgrade and procedures on how to install the upgrade. The customer should read all upgrade notices and decide if the upgrade is appropriate.
A backup seed is used to manually transfer large amounts of data from the customer’s computer(s) to the remote data center. At Accomtec’s discretion, a seed backup may be requested in which the customer must perform a seed backup to an external hard drive. Once completed, the external hard drive is sent to the remote data center where the data is then copied to the backup server. Subsequent backups will be performed quickly and efficiently, only backing up data that has changed since the last backup.
The core part of the service is to provide access to Accomtec's Microsoft Exchange Servers. Accomtec provides access to the Microsoft Exchange Services via Outlook (Outlook Anywhere) and Outlook Web Access (OWA). In addition Accomtec may also provide Exchange Services to mobile devices via Microsoft ActiveSync. The Exchange servers are housed in a state-of-the-art Tier 4, SAS 70 Type II Data Center where expert technicians are on-hand 24 hours per day, 365 days per year to address any issues that may arise.
Microsoft Outlook is complementary with the purchase of Accomtec’s hosted Exchange Server email service. The customer must request this from Accomtec.
The Customer must have the appropriate software to connect to the Exchange Server. This can be done through a web browser using Outlook Web Access (OWA); through Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010 using Outlook Anywhere; through Microsoft ActiveSync on a mobile device. The Customer must first sign up for an account or accounts through Accomtec. Once the customer is signed up, then they must go through the necessary configuration steps to set up any or all of these services. Extra steps can be taken to import data (mail, contacts, calendar, and tasks) from a previous service. Setup fees may apply.
The core part of the service is the provision of a hosted Remote Desktop Services cloud to where the customer can connect to a specified server and use remote desktop connection to run specified applications with their data. The Remote Desktop Services will be located inside a secure data center where all standard data center facilities, including redundancy and backup power supply, 24-hour professional monitoring & surveillance and controlled access to the premises, are provided.
This unique service:
1. Provides businesses of all sizes with a secure, cost effective solution for deploying windows applications to their employees, no matter where they are located.
2. Provides a complete managed IT service that delivers high levels of security and availability.
For individuals and businesses that are looking for basic desktop services that include selected Microsoft Office products, but which do not require deployment of custom written or third party application programs, we offer three standard Microsoft Office packages which can be supplemented with additional Microsoft Office components.
For businesses looking to deploy one or more custom developed or third party programs, whether these applications are to be delivered to one office or too many remote offices, we offer a fully managed Remote Desktop Business Solutions.
Remote Desktop Computing is a way to deliver application programs like Word, Excel, Outlook, QuickBooks or just about any other business application your require to end-user desktops through the Internet.
Rather than installing programs individually on each user’s desktop, applications are installed once on Accomtec servers. End-users connect to these applications using Microsoft “Remote Desktop Connection”. For example, end-users that use Windows XP, Vista or 7 desktops run the "Remote Desktop Connection" program which is included with all copies of Windows XP and higher machines to connect to your application programs.
When they connect they are presented with a remote desktop that displays a list of available programs and users simply click and execute the programs they wish to execute as normal. A typical ACCOMTEC provisioned Remote Desktop Services session might look something like this:
Individual desktops can, of course, be tailored to meet the needs of your individual business and individual employees or groups of employees.
ACCOMTEC's Remote Desktop sessions are available to you and your employees no matter where they are, and no matter what time of the day or night they need to connect.
Employees from multiple office locations can connect to our hosted service, with each obtaining the same levels of support and availability. Employees that work from home can access the business applications they need to do their job, whether full time or part time. Employees can connect using a wide range of remote connection services, and even connect using thin-client devices, remote Pocket PC devices or remote tablet PC devices.
Individuals that travel can connect to their office applications from just about anywhere including hotels, Internet cafes, airports and other facilities. Employees can even connect using local dial-up connections while still seeing having similar performance to high speed connections.
For many businesses, just knowing that their data is protected and that they can rely on an experienced company like ACCOMTEC to manage their services is all the justification they need to subscribe to our hosted Remote Desktop solutions. These businesses no longer have to worry about nightly backups, or worry that a local disaster will wipe out vital customer records or other important information.
ACCOMTEC looks after everything. We manage your solution, we back up your documents and other data and we provide technical support to you and your employees as needed to help ensure that your business succeeds.
Accomtec will provide a secure method for accessing data to the user via a VPN client and Microsoft Remote Desktop Client. The connection into the data center will be over a VPN, short for virtual private network, a network that is constructed by using public wires to connect nodes. This will provide access for transporting data from workstation to server. The customer will use Microsoft's Remote Desktop client to manage the remote session on top of the VPN.
The core part of the service is the registration of domain names. In addition Accomtec may also provide Domain Name Service (DNS) services, hosting DNS and making changes to DNS as requested by the customer.
The customer must first request a domain name. After verifying the availability of the domain name(s) and receiving payment or agreement to payment terms, Accomtec will register the domain names for the customer and charge the customer accordingly. The customer will be notified by email of the new domain name registration and also of the methods to access and change the DNS server. At that time the customer can request DNS changes.
WHOIS refers to the method of checking information of registered domain names. By default Accomtec registers all domain names with WHOIS privacy, meaning that the customer's information is not available to the public. The Customer must contact Accomtec if they would like to share the WHOIS information.
This section describes the standard of the services that are to be delivered to the customer by Accomtec.
The minimum acceptable level of uptime ratio for the services for any particular month shall be 95% as determined by the following formula:
· Uptime Ratio = (Total Time – Lost Time) / Total Time x 100%
Total Time = total number of hours within a month
Lost Time = total number of hours any service is unavailable for services within a month
If the uptime falls below 95%, for each cumulative hour of unavailability or fraction thereof in any calendar month, at Customer’s request, Customer's account shall be credited on a pro rata basis charges for one day of the monthly fee for the service.
Scheduled maintenance shall mean any maintenance performed on the services provided. Customer will be notified 7 days in advance. Notice of Scheduled Maintenance will be provided to Customer's designated point of contact by email. Unavailability caused by scheduled maintenance does not count towards the “Lost Time” variable in the minimum acceptable uptime ratio formula above.
Table 3.3.1 shows the guideline for problem resolution time for problems at different priority levels and a simple definition of different priority levels. When a problem arises, Accomtec is expected to resolve the problem within the guideline stated below.
Table 3.3.1 – Problem resolution time guideline
Total Disruption to the Service
Accomtec shall assign a dedicated person to handle the customer’s call at any given time. The customer can simply call the assigned telephone number to contact a technical support representative during support hours.
If there is any urgent problem that needs to be brought to the attention to the management of both Accomtec and the customer after support hours, Table 3.1.1 at the end of this document shall be used to contact the personnel in charge of the services.
Both Accomtec and the customer are responsible to keep the contact information above up-to-date with the other party.
Accomtec shall not be responsible for:
· circumstances beyond Accomtec’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of any governmental body, war, insurrection, sabotage, embargo, fire, flood, strike or other labor disturbance, interruption of or delay in transportation, unavailability of or interruption or delay in telecommunications or third party services, failure of third party software or inability to obtain raw materials, supplies, or power used in or equipment needed for provision of the Service agreement;
· failure of access circuits to Accomtec’s Network, unless such failure is caused solely by Accomtec;
· failure of Customer’s Internet access service;
· general third party failure;
· failure of Customer’s equipment used in connection with the services;
· scheduled and emergency maintenance;
· Domain Name System (DNS) issues outside the direct control of Accomtec;
· any other acts or omissions of Customer or others authorized by Customer, including without limitation, any negligence, willful misconduct, or use of Accomtec’s network or services in breach of Accomtec's Terms.
This section describes how changes to this Service agreement shall take place.
The amendment of the agreement would take place through an addendum to this agreement and the recording of that addendum in an Appendix of this agreement. There will be an opportunity on a quarterly basis to make adjustments to this Service agreement. Accomtec and the customer should work together to make changes at that time.
Any amendment to the Terms and Conditions of this agreement would require the approval of Accomtec and the customer.
We may modify the Terms upon notice to you at any time. You will be provided notice of any such modification by electronic mail or by publishing the changes on the website http://www.accomtec.com/network_computer.asp?mid=67&mid2=151. You may terminate your use of the Services if the Terms are modified in a manner that substantially affects your rights in connection with use of the Services. Your continued use of the Service after notice of any change to the Terms will be deemed to be your agreement to the amended Terms.
We may suspend your user account or temporarily disable access to whole or part of any Service in the event of any suspected illegal activity, extended periods of inactivity or requests by law enforcement or other government agencies. Objections to suspension or disabling of user accounts should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org within thirty days of being notified about the suspension. We may terminate a suspended or disabled user account after thirty days. We will also terminate your user account on your request.
