What is Incident Support 24/7?

The Incident Support 24/7 service is part of our Support Levels "Gold" and "Platinum". If you have booked one of these support levels, Exasol will help you to restore the standard operation of the Exasol cluster as quickly as possible in the event of an incident.

An incident is defined as an issue that causes a deviation from the standard operation of the Exasol cluster, and which causes an interruption or disruption of the service. Examples include: a database instance does not accept connections, a backup cannot be generated, or one or more hardware components are defective. For critical incidents, service times are 24/7, for major, normal, and minor the contractually agreed maintenance times apply.

Important note

If you have to create a ticket with priority CRITICAL outside GERMAN (CET/CEST time) business hours you must additionally call our support hotline.

Incident Processing
