The Plus services level is targeted for production non-critical workloads, and the high higher service levels of Premium tier are targeted for workloads that need faster response and resolution, such as business critical applications. Credits are provided for non-conformance to SLAs for each tier, and customers have the flexibility to choose between the tiers per account on a monthly basis.
