Website availability and planned maintenance
Whilst we aim for 100% availability, we have a commitment to make our web services available for 98% of the time. This includes all public-facing servers and is covered by a service level agreement with our website hosts. The table below shows site availability over the previous 12 months. Figures include any downtime for planned maintenance.
|Month||Service availability (%)||Target met?|
Website availability for the last 12 months was 99.72%.
We report our site availability using information from Siteimprove reporting service.
For various reasons we occasionally have to take our web systems offline.
Please note, the status of maintenance jobs may not be updated outside of business hours.
