DDSN Application Availability

Application Availability
DSN's Helpdesk is staffed from 8:00AM - 5:00PM Monday through Friday. DDSN makes every effort to ensure that web applications are available during these business hours, and whenever possible otherwise. However, DDSN does not monitor these applications during non-business hours and cannot guarantee availability. Regular maintenance periods (shown below) are also required to ensure correct operation of the applications.

The times listed below are not a comprehensive list of potential down-times for DDSN applications. Other downtime may occur with or without notice. DDSN attempts to notify users of non-standard downtime as soon as we are aware of it, but such notification is not always possible.
