High-Availability Architecture:

VHT hosts all Cloud Services on resilient and elastically scalable infrastructure, using a fault tolerant application architecture. This ensures high availability and consistent application performance. All components of our Callback application are load-balances across multiple availability zones, substantially reducing the risk of failure.

Our cloud service providers adhere to industry standard compliance, certifying in ISO 27001, SOC 2 or similar. We obtain and review these reports on an annual basis to confirm compliance.

All SSL certificates are created and updated with 2048-bit key length and SHA-256. Our keys, supporting database encryption as well as SSL, are encrypted and stored using a key management service.

 

Disaster Recovery:

VHT’s infrastructure architecture supports a recoverable process. Automated data backups, coupled with documented and automated recovery procedures for the application and its supporting infrastructure, results in our ability to restore functionality to a new geographical region with minimal downtime.

 

 

Note: These support terms may change, but VHT will not materially degrade these terms during a paid support term. VHT will provide email or other electronic notice of any material changes.
