What Does Application Availability Mean?

Application availability is the extent to which an application is operational, functional and usable for completing or fulfilling a user’s or business' requirements. This measure is used to analyze an application's overall performance and determine its operational statistics in relation to its ability to perform as required.

Symplicity utilizes Cloud Service Providers such as AWS, MS Azure, and OCI, which enable us to scale on-demand.  When the load on an application has increased, we can scale up our infrastructure to ensure availability of applications.  When the load decreases, we can scale down.  This gives Symplicity the ability to provide our clients with the lowest possible cost of services.
