This is what we do in the Support and Maintenance phase:

Tip: The support and maintenance tasks discussed here are subjected to the WSO2 Managed Cloud Policy and Service Level Agreement.

Send weekly status updates

WSO2 sends weekly status update emails to you with the following information:

  • Summary of the hosting-related JIRAs raised for the Managed Cloud.
  • Summary of the maintenance tasks done during the current week.
  • Summary of the maintenance work scheduled for the next week, including any scheduled downtimes.

Provide around-the-clock support and maintenance

According to the WSO2 Managed Cloud SLA, WSO2 carries out the following support and maintenance tasks:

Ensures the availability of the WSO2 servers and services deployed as part of the Managed Cloud.
Monitors the Managed Cloud and takes action if any servers become unavailable.

Configures the hosting setup for optimum resource consumption and scales hardware to meet performance thresholds.

Updates software that is identified as part of the Managed Cloud to their latest versions.
Takes daily scheduled backups of all the servers under the Managed Cloud service.

Handle hosting incidents

A hosting incident is any kind of unplanned interruption that affects the availability, quality or performance of the services managed by the WSO2 Managed Cloud team. A hosting incident might occur in deployment, upgrade, maintenance, network configuration, startup, stopping, monitoring, and performance, and it has to be within the scope of the Managed Cloud's deployment architecture.

The diagram below shows how WSO2 handles a hosting incident:
