Like everyone else around the globe, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation for possible effects on our employees, our services, and our customers. We know that many organizations playing key roles in fighting the disease, helping those directly affected, and handling the crisis depend on npm and the open source community in some way, so our usual efforts to keep the Registry available, reliable and secure have taken on a new kind of importance.
We have high confidence in our ability to ensure our services, including the Registry, remain fully available for all of our users, free and paid alike. We employ teams of full-time engineers dedicated to security, reliability, and availability, as well as a robust set of processes, policies and procedures designed for every foreseeable circumstance. These teams, and all of npm, Inc., work remotely, from dozens of locations across the globe, giving our staff geographic and time zone diversity. Our services run on trusted commercial cloud providers with proven track records of reliability. And of course, we are working in close contact with key parts of our community, our commercial cloud providers and other partners, and government authorities in managing this crisis.
