Service Cycle: One Service Cycle equals to one calendar month. If the service is used for less than one calendar month, the Service Cycle will be calculated as one calendar month.

Single Instance Service Cycle in Minutes: Calculated on the basis of the total number of days in a Service Cycle × 24 (hours) × 60 (minutes).

Single Region Service Cycle in Minutes: The total Instance Service Cycle in Minutes in all availability zones of a single region.

Instance Unavailability: The GPUVM instance is deemed unavailable if the
disconnection between a GPUVM instance configured with access permitted rules and any IP address over TCP or UDP in the inbound and outbound directions lasts for more than 5 minutes.

Single Instance Service Downtime in Minutes: The total number of minutes in one Service Cycle during which time a single GPUVM instance is unavailable.

Single Region Multi-Zone Service Unavailability: Refers to the situation that, when GPUVM instances are deployed in at least two availability zones of a single region (hereinafter referred to as “single region multi-zone”), all GPUVM instances in an availability zone experience Instance Unavailability and meanwhile other GPUVM instances in any other availability zones of this region also experience Instance Unavailability (hereinafter referred to as “unavailable GPUVM instances in other zones of the same region”).

Single Region Multi-Zone Service Downtime in Minutes: Refers to the total number of minutes for all unavailable GPUVM instances in other zones of the same region when Single Region Multi-Zone Service Unavailability occurs in that region in one Service Cycle.

2.Service Availability Guarantee

2.1 The service availability of GPUVM shall be counted according to the service cycle based on two dimensions. The specific availability guarantee and calculation formula are as follows:

(1)Single GPUVM instance: The service availability of a single GPUVM instance in one Service Cycle should be no lower than 99.95%.

Service availability calculation formula: (Instance Service Cycle in Minutes – Instance Service Downtime in Minutes) / Instance Service Cycle in Minutes × 100%.

(2)Single Region Multi-Zone Service: The service availability of multi-zone in a single region in one Service Cycle should be no lower than 99.99%.

Service availability calculation formula: (Single Region Service Cycle in Minutes – Single Region Multi-Zone Service Downtime in Minutes) / Single Region Service Cycle in Minutes × 100%.

The compensation will not exceed the monthly service fee (excluding the deductible part by granting balance or vouchers) paid by the customer for this GPUVM instance in the current month.
