Technical Annex for the Cluster Power Cloud Computing Service

Description of Services and Specific Definitions
Specific Definitions
In addition to the definitions described above, the following specific definitions apply to the Cluster Power Computing service and the services listed in the ClusterPower E-Shop.
Data refers to the data of the Client and its Users, including direct or indirect personal data, hosted under the Agreement and accessible only to the Client and its Users.
Data Center is a building, a dedicated space in a building or group of buildings, used to house computer systems and associated components such as telecommunications and storage systems.
Disaster Recovery is an extension of the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform through which we offer the Cluster Power Computing service and which offers Clients the possibility to host their virtual machines in one of the Cluster Power data centers, other than the production one, hereafter considered: replication data center.
Monthly availability, hereinafter referred to as SLA, of the Cluster Power Computing service is the percentage of time the service is available as defined in the Cluster Power scope of responsibilities.
Unique Client ID: the unique Client number designated by the Provider when signing the agreement
Application Programming Interface (or API) means the programming interface that allows you to access vDC resources using a software.
The vCloud Director administration interface provides access to the administrative functions of the service, where administrators can log in to manage the resources of the Cluster Power Computing service. This technical administration interface requires knowledge of network and security features to configure different network policies and security rules.
Client license(s) means the third-party software licenses that a Client subscribes to and that are used in the Infrastructure.
Virtual Machine (or VM) means a software application that fully simulates the operation of the hardware components of a computer system.
Organization (or vOrg) means a virtual private space provided by the VMware vCloud Director application, the software underlying the Cluster Power Computing service. The organization includes all virtual data centers (vDCs) for the hosting of VMs.
RPO (Recovery Point Objective): the last point in time from which applications/virtual machines can be retrieved.
RTO (Recovery Time Objective): how quickly applications protected by the Disaster Recovery solution resume operations from the moment of a computer incident.
SR number means the registration number assigned to a support ticket at the time of the Client incident report
Operating system means a core set of software used by a computing device as an interface between hardware and software applications
Remediation time is the maximum time Cluster Power commits to remediate the Cluster Power Computing service.
User(s) means natural persons using the Service under the responsibility of the Client.
Virtual Datacenter (or vDC) means the VMware logical object of the same name. A vDC is a pool of computing resources (vCPU power expressed in Ghz, RAM capacity expressed in GB), storage resources (expressed in GB) and virtual networks (Internet and VPN access, firewall) used to create a secure network architecture.
vApp means a logical group in which VMs are created. This group helps to easily and consistently manage a range of VMs that are grouped together for certain reasons (functional or security).

Services description

Computing resources

The operating frequency of a vCPU is 2.4Ghz.
RAM is allocated at a unit fraction of 1Gb.
Storage resources
Cluster Power offers the following types of storage:

Service Type

Disk Value (HDD)

Value (SSD)

Performance (SSD)


Max latency





Committed IOPS/TB















IOPS resources are shared among all VMs using the vDC on which the Client deploys its VMs.
Storage in “VMDK” format is made available to VMs in a vDC as storage profiles that VMs can access to use as hard disks. The size of a VMDK file is limited to 16 TB. When a virtual machine needs to have more than 16 TB of storage space, you need to add more VMDK files to the virtual machine to reach the target size.
The unit fraction for storage resources is 1 Gb.
By default, the service provides snapshot backup of virtual machines, free of charge, with a retention period of 3 days (a copy of the last 3 days is kept). Internal backup mechanisms require VMs to incorporate an updated version of “vmware tools” software. Most backup system failures are due to outdated versions of vmware tools.
Public or private templates catalogue
Organization administrators can access the Cluster Power public catalog, which provides ready-to-use vApp templates, in the administration interface. These vApps contain a single virtual machine, which comes with an operating system already installed and pre-configured. The public catalogue evolves regularly as new software versions become available. The Client can also manage their own template catalogues. Storage of these private catalogs uses storage space from the space available in the first vDC in the list displayed by vCloud Director.
Disaster Recovery
This feature gives the Cluster Power Computing service the ability to resume business following a computer incident by replicating VMs from the primary Cluster Power Computing Advanced site to the replication data center. This solution has an administration portal, which is made available to the Client together with the administration interface.
This feature makes it possible:
Protecting virtual machines of a vDC
Restoration between the main site and the virtual machine replication site
Setting priorities in virtual machine replication
Setting up replication groups. Multiple VMs can replicate as a group.
Testing the consistency of virtual machine replication.
Replication traffic between Cluster Power Data Centers is provided, free of charge. Any number of virtual machines can be replicated during the Term of the Agreement, depending on the resources available in the replication Data Center.
The storage type chosen for the replication Data Center may be different from the profile chosen for the primary data center. For example, data stored on SSD storage can be replicated to SAS storage.

Specific Provisioning Conditions

Client Obligations
Password configuration and access security in the administration portal is the sole responsibility of the Client.
It is the Client’s responsibility to keep the “vmware tools” software up to date.
In the case of Disaster Recovery, the Client is responsible for:
the selection of VMs for protection or the implementation of such protections (the sole responsibility of the Client). However, Cluster Power can provide complementary services upon request to meet the Client’s support needs.
testing and execution of replication tests for protected applications.
organising and carrying out post-incident recovery tests and main virtual machine restore tests. The Client shall not incur additional costs for testing the solution.
sizing its resources according to the load of its applications;
Operating system availability of the application infrastructure, applications installed on virtual machines
Security of systems at the virtual machine level, security and integrity of applications and stored data, security of data connections and information transferred over Cluster Power connections
Setting access policies on virtual machines and to hosted applications
Virtual machine and application management, internal network beyond the WAN interface of Cluster Power equipment
Licensing of operating systems and software solutions installed on the virtual infrastructure

Cluster Power Obligations
Availability of the Cluster Power Computing platform – of the physical infrastructure: (servers, network equipment, and virtualization platform)
Integrity and security of data automatically backed up daily from the Cluster Power Computing platform
Management of the virtualization platform and physical infrastructure
Managing and configuring VPN connections
Virtual private cloud platform security
Cluster Power ensures that there is no restriction on the amount of traffic through the Cluster Power network to or from the Client’s contracted virtual servers.
In case of Disaster Recovery
Cluster Power does not make any commitment to RPO (Recovery Point Objective) or RTO (Recovery Time Objective).

Onboarding and Activation Process
The Client shall receive an email confirming the activation of the Cluster Power Computing service to the technical contact address provided, hereinafter referred to as “Administrator”, together with the access credentials for the administration interface. The Client may invite Users with rights to use the Services into the Cluster Power Computing service organization. Users to whom the Client has granted the appropriate rights may, themselves, invite other Users.
The Client has a test period of 72 hours from the sending of the email confirming the activation of the service, during which time they can open a support ticket to implement changes/enhancements if necessary, as described below.
If within 72 hours after the email confirming the activation of the service has been sent the Client does not need any changes, the Activation Date is considered to be the date on which the email confirming the activation of the service was sent.
If the Client needs improvements and opens a support ticket for this purpose within the 72-hour period, then the Activation Date shall be the date on which the support ticket is closed. The Client shall use all reasonable commercial/technical efforts to provide all necessary information to resolve the support ticket as quickly as possible. During the settlement of the support ticket in order to activate the service, the Client undertakes not to use ClusterPower services except for the purpose of testing their functionality.

Service Limitations

The number of vCPUs of a VM must be an integer number (a VM cannot have, for example, 1.5 vCPUs). The vCPU frequency is aligned with the physical Processor frequency, in line with VMware best practices, to give the Client the best possible performance.
The maximum space allocated on a disk (*.vmdk) is 16Tb and the recommended space is 1Tb; a virtual machine can be allocated a maximum of 60 disks.
The technical maximum RAM allocation per virtual machine is 4TB RAM, the recommended maximum is 2TB.
When consuming memory and disk, there is an overhead (additional memory required to run a virtual machine) which is allocated from the space paid by the client.
Limitations of Liability
In the event of repeated failure to back up a VM linked to an outdated version of vmware tools, Cluster Power cannot be held liable for loss of data if the VM is not backed up properly due to an outdated version of vmware tools software.
Specific Security Policies
The vCloud Director portal is accessed via the Internet. The standard (default) security level is password protection. When the first administrator account is created by Cluster Power, a password is created that meets the security requirements. However, the Client may create new administrator accounts at any time.
Service Availability
All Services described in this Agreement are made available during the following business hours: 24 × 7 × 365 (24 hours / day, 7 days / week, 365 days / year).

This is equivalent to an Agreed Service Time (AST) of 8760 hours/year or 730 hours/month.

If at least one of the redundant components of the power supply system or the air conditioning system in the computer room is functioning, then the Services are considered to continue to be provided and the AST is not diminished nor is an interruption recorded in these cases.

The Services shall be available 99.982% of the AST specified in this SLA. This is the Agreed Service Availability (ASA).

Service Availability (SA) is calculated after each month as a percentage of the AST using the following formula:
SA= (AST-IT)/AST ×100
Where Interruption Time (IT) is the sum of the interruption hours during the month for which the calculation is made. Minutes and seconds of interruption periods are converted into hours. The maximum IT is 0.1460 hours per month or 8 minutes and 45 seconds per month.
The service interruption time is calculated as the interval between the Client reporting the incident (time of ticket registration) and the service becoming available again according to the agreed parameters.
The quality parameters shall not be applicable in the first month after the Service Activation, which is considered as the Service testing period.
If any component of the Services provided is down or is operating abnormally to such an extent that it may be deemed inaccessible, an outage shall be declared.

Interruptions caused by force majeure events, as defined in the Agreement, shall not be considered as Incidents and shall not be counted as Service interruptions under the responsibility of the Provider.
Outages shall qualify as an Incident under this Annex (“Incident”).

We offer support and assistance 24 hours a day / 7 days a week / 365 days a year. In case of failure of any component of the service, a ticket describing the Incident must be logged in the Jira Cloud platform. If you have a request, you must follow the procedure described below.
Registration of support requests by the Client
Access to technical support services can only be done formally, by creating a support ticket in the Jira Cloud online support request management platform, available 24x7x365. If the Jira Cloud platform is not available, technical support services can be accessed by sending an email to: [email protected], with the subject: Support request {client name}, {client ID}, {priority medium/low}.
A unique identification ID (SR number) shall be assigned to each reported request, which shall be automatically sent by the system to the Client, via an e-mail notification, to the person at the Client who reported the incident.
Incident reporting must be at a sufficiently consistent level of detail and include at least the following information:
· Service(s) affected;
· The time interval in which the Incident occurred;
· Estimated number of users affected and their role;
· Operational impact of the Incident;
· Background of the Incident;
· Logs/errors that could provide information about the Incident.
Each request opened in the Jira Cloud system shall describe a single Incident.
The ticket shall be closed by the technical support team when the Incident is resolved. Incident resolution time is automatically recorded by the Jira Cloud application when the ticket is closed.
Emergency levels
Any support request recorded shall be classified according to the urgency levels below. The level of urgency that shall be assigned by the Client at the time of opening the ticket can be medium or low. To escalate the ticket to High or Critical levels, the Client shall call the unique support number where they shall enter:
Unique Client ID
The ID (SR number) generated by the JIRA Cloud platform at the time of ticket registration.
Digit 1 for Critical or digit 2 for High
· CRITICAL: there is a critical operational impact that prevents the Client from benefiting from the basic functions of the Service and there is a major impact on business continuity;
· HIGH: there is an operational impact that prevents the Client from benefiting from the basic functions of the Service or the basic functions of the Service are available but limited or performance is degraded.
· MEDIUM: there is an impact that only affects the functioning of the Service to a small extent;
· LOW: there is a minor impact on the Service; this includes service type requests (information requests, questions, etc.).


The response time corresponding to each urgency level is the time elapsed from the registration of the support request in the Provider’s online support request management system and the moment when a technically trained person from the Provider confirms that the support request has been received and the investigation of the request has been initiated; the confirmation shall be made by e-mail notification; if the Jira Cloud platform is not available, the confirmation shall be made by phone. Support requests that are found to be unwarranted are not considered Incidents and shall not be counted as Service interruptions. The investigation shall be initiated in the following intervals, depending on the level of urgency of the request for support:

 Within 24 x 7

30 min

2 hours

4 working hours

10 working hours

Emergency level






Service Availability shall be measured for each calendar month according to the formula in point 3 above.

If the Availability of a Service is less than 99% of the AST, the Provider shall compensate the Client in the form of Service Credits. The amount of compensation shall be set as a percentage of the value of the Service in question for the month in which the Service Availability was less than 99%, as shown in the table below:

Monthly availability





Compensation of the monthly service value





Any compensation in the form of service credits to be given to the Client due to the Provider’s inability to provide the Service Availability Levels undertaken shall be calculated for one calendar month. The Client may use the service credits accumulated during the term of this Agreement, at its discretion, by written request, to purchase new services from Cluster Power’s offering or to offset amounts owed by the Client under the Agreement. Credits may be used until the termination of this Agreement, their validity cannot be extended and they cannot be assigned or transferred under any circumstances.
