Any scheduled downtime is announced at least one business day in advance and is scheduled during off-peak hours, typically Sunday evenings.



Our entire cloud-based platform is running on Microsoft Azure.

Alongside runs independently on a load balancer with multiple web servers and master/slave database configuration for maximum performance and uptime.
