EMQX Cloud Service Level Agreement

EMQ will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide a Monthly Uptime Percentage of no less than 99.99% each billing month in connection with your use of the Service (the “Service Guarantee”). This Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) applies only to EMQX Cloud deployments at Professional edition, and does not apply to any other product offered by EMQ. If we do not achieve and maintain the Monthly Uptime Percentages set forth in the table below, then you may be eligible for a Service Credit.

Monthly Uptime Percentage Service Credit Percentage
Less than 99.99%, but equal to or greater than 99.00% 15%
Less than 99.00%, but equal to or greater than 95.00% 30%
Less than 95.00% 100%


"Monthly Service Fee" means the total charges paid by you for the Services in one billing month. For the upfront lump sum payment paid by you for the Service, the Monthly Service Fee equals the lump sum payment divided by the number of months of the Service covered by such payment.

"Monthly Uptime Percentage" means a percentage of Service availability calculated by reference to the following formula:
