This Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) describes the service levels and related remedies applicable to the Nasuni Data Storage Services (“Data Storage Services”). Your use of the Data Storage Services, and the terms of this SLA, are subject to the terms of the Nasuni Data Storage Terms of Service and End User License Agreement (“Terms of Service”), your applicable purchase order and the Nasuni Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Agreement”). Nasuni may amend the terms of this SLA in accordance with the Agreement. Unless defined herein, terms used in this SLA have the meanings specified in the Agreement.

1. SERVICE LEVELS. Nasuni will use reasonable efforts to make the Data Storage Services available and to protect your data such that it will be:

a. 100% Available: The Data Storage Services will always be available to store and retrieve your data;

b. 100% Accessible: The Data Storage Services will always enable you to access your data; and

c. Restored with the Click of a Button After a Disaster.

If the Data Storage Services fail to meet any of the service levels above, and as a result an Incident occurs, then you may receive Service Credits as described in Section 3.


“Data Storage Services” means the data storage cloud services that Nasuni provides to you, together with the accompanying Nasuni software and mobile applications and documentation, and excludes all data storage services that a third party provides directly to you, such as Private Cloud or Bring Your Own Cloud.

“Incident” means a Disaster Recovery Incident or an Outage.

“Disaster Recovery Incident” means an incident where you do not have access to all of your data via the Data Storage Services within 15 minutes after: (a) the appliance running the Data Storage Services on your premises has stopped working permanently and you cannot access any of your data (a “Disaster”); (b) you have downloaded the Data Storage Services software to a fully functioning appliance and have completed the login wizard for the Data Storage Services software; and (c) you have clicked “Continue” from the “Ready to Perform Disaster Recovery” screen of the Data Storage Services software on such appliance.

Outage” means a 5-minute period of consecutive failed attempts by the Data Storage Services to provide the data you request. Disaster Recovery Incidents are excluded from the term “Outage.”

3. SERVICE CREDITS. In the event of an Incident, subject to the terms of this SLA, you will be entitled to a credit as set forth in this Section 3 (each, a “Service Credit”). For each day in which there is one or more Incident(s), you will receive a Service Credit equal to 10 free days of the Data Storage Services, which Service Credit will be applied as an extension of the then-current term of your Agreement. You may accrue Service Credits up to a maximum of 3 months of free Data Storage Services in any 12-month period. To be eligible for Service Credits you must comply with the Credit Request and Payment Procedure in Section 4. The Service Credits are Nasuni’s sole obligation and your sole and exclusive remedy for any failure to achieve the service levels described above or other failure of the Data Storage Services.

4. CREDIT REQUEST AND PAYMENT PROCEDURE. Nasuni keeps some logs for a limited period of time, so you must alert Nasuni of any request for a Service Credit so that Nasuni can confirm the Incident. If you do not provide the request and other information as required in this Section 4, you will not be eligible to receive a Service Credit. You must submit requests for Service Credits by sending an email message to The request must include, in the subject line of the message, your company name, authorized administrator name and his or her associated email address, and, in the body of the message: (i) the dates and times of each Incident you believe you have experienced and a description of the Incident; and (ii) with respect to Outages and Disaster Recovery Incidents, your logs from your Nasuni Filer indicating your inability to access the Data Storage Service, which logs document the Data Storage Services failures and corroborate your claimed Outage or Disaster Recovery Incident (any confidential or sensitive information in these logs should be removed or replaced with asterisks). Nasuni must receive all requests for Service Credits along with all the information within 10 business days after the date of the perceived Incident. If Nasuni confirms your claim, Nasuni will issue the applicable Service Credit within 10 business days after such confirmation and apply it to your account in accordance with Section 3.


On Premises Incidents. This SLA does not apply to any service interruption, security breach or access to or manipulation of your data that occurs on your premises. The SLA applies (i) only when your appliance running the Data Storage Services software has a fully functional connection to the Internet, and (ii) only to your data traveling via the Data Storage Services from the point of demarcation of your premises and back to the point of demarcation of your premises.

Other. The SLA does not apply to any Incident or other unavailability or problem with the Data Storage Services: (i) that results from the suspension or termination of your right to use the Data Storage Services in accordance with the Agreement; (ii) that is caused by factors outside of our reasonable control, including a force majeure event, or Internet access or related problems on your premises; (iii) that results from any actions or inaction of you or any third party; or (iv) that results from your equipment, software or other technology or third party equipment, software or other technology. If Data Storage Services performance is affected by problems other than Incidents, we may issue you a Service Credit with respect to such problems in our sole discretion. This SLA does not apply to any Nasuni Data Storage Services provided pursuant to an Agreement that commenced before July 1, 2011 (unless you upgrade such service to the Data Storage Services after such date) or any Nasuni product or service other than the Data Storage Services.
