To better understand the support options available for the Egenera products you use refer to the matrix below.  Egenera also offers migration of BladeFrame or PAN customers to our Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution called Xterity Cloud.  Xterity Cloud is based off Egenera solutions to provide the same high availability and other functions.  This also makes the complicated process of migrating off a PAN system easy and reliable.  Xterity is a cloud IaaS provider simpler than AWS or Azure and a excellent platform for ISV to SaaS transition.  It also can be used as a cloud backup and DR provider

  • Upgrade Preparation – Refers to the resources required to determine compatibility and review potential risks with a planned upgrade path.

  • * All Egenera replacements outside of warranty are done as an advanced exchange where an Egenera-owned spare is shipped to the customer according to the SLA so that a failed part can be replaced before it is de-installed to minimize potential outage. Replacement parts do not become customer property until the defective part is received by Egenera, prior to that customer is responsible for the return or purchase of Egenera spare within 30 days.

  • ** Timing represents a minimal committed SLA from time Egenera establishes need. However exact date and time of dispatch depends on customer’s ability to consume those services and the local time.

  • All Egenera service contracts are charged on an annual pre-paid basis. Services can be upgrading or changed within a contract or during a renewal upon written notice however certain additional charges may apply. Re-instating service after coverage has lapsed is subject to a fee.

  • †On-Site Support – On-site support technicians are only included in contracts covering Egenera Bladeframe hardware.  Local technicians are engaged when Egenera support identifies they are required for remediation.   On-site labor is not a substitute for customer involvement in diagnostic efforts or pBlade replacements.   On-site labor SLA does not apply to PS activities or other special requests for on-site support.
