What does this mean? 

Yardi utilizes a third party service (NewRelic) to continually monitor the availability of our systems, measuring the response time of every request made on our servers.   

 

 

 

Why isn't it always 100% ? 

Every request on our servers is analyzed for several factors, not just including response time. Additionally, each server is checked several times per minute throughout the month for general availability.

Occasionally there is a brief outage on our side that our techs quickly diagnose and remedy, but more often there are issues with external service providers somewhere within the vast network we know as the Internet. We strive for perfection (and often we achieve it) but there are often factors that lie beyond our control.

  

 

Why is there more than one server?

Yardi self storage software and data are hosted in multiple locations and multiple servers.  This helps to better protect your data and increase performance. Contact Yardi to find out which server hosts your company's data.
