Service Availability Monitoring at Ex Libris
The Ex Libris Network & Security Operations Center (NOC/SOC) provides 24×7, year-round monitoring for all Ex Libris cloud and hosted services.
Ex Libris monitoring consists of multi-layered, fully redundant systems that monitor the services inside and outside the data center to validate that services are running at high availability and performance levels.

Service Disruption RCA Reports & Policy
Ex Libris performs internal Root Cause Analyses (RCAs) for each SaaS service disruption and takes the necessary steps to avoid them in the future. Ex Libris implements reactive and proactive problem management based on ITIL in order to minimize both the number and severity of incidents.
For SaaS multitenant environments, Ex Libris publishes RCA reports for any significant event. These reports can be found in the Customer Knowledge Center.
Ex Libris maintains a service disruption communication policy to ensure that we react appropriately to any actual or suspected events relating to Ex Libris cloud systems and data. This policy defines the steps that Ex Libris personnel must use to provide a process for documentation, appropriate reporting internally and externally, and communication.
Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
The Ex Libris cloud infrastructure is designed to be resilient even in cases of disruption.
Ex Libris cloud infrastructure complies with the fundamental guidelines of business continuity: full redundancy, load balancing, and failover. Each component in the system utilizes high availability capabilities, including storage, servers, databases, network routers, redundant firewalls, and the utilization of multiple internet service providers to maintain network access to the data center.
This high-availability architecture protects services from failure in one or more components and offers a high level of resiliency and business continuity. Due to this architecture, Ex Libris achieved ISO 22301 certification, a comprehensive standard that reflects our commitment to business continuity and disaster preparedness.
