3.2 Standards for Compensation
Duration of malfunction = the time when the malfunction is fixed-- the time when the malfunction starts. The duration of malfunction will be calculated in minutes. Where the duration of malfunction, or an unrounded portion thereof, is less than 1 minute, it will be rounded up to 1 minute. For example, if the duration of malfunction is 1 minute and 1 second, it will be calculated as 2 minutes.
One hundred times compensation for Tencent Cloud database malfunction:
(1) Pre-pay: the compensation will be made by extending the use period of the failed database, extended time = duration of malfunction × 100.
(2) Post-pay: the compensation will be made in the form of voucher, the amount of voucher = daily fee of the failed database / 24 / 60 × duration of malfunction × 100.
