Call home

Proactive system monitoring activated automatically during set-up. Datera strongly recommends every customer enables the call home feature to receive continuous monitoring and proactively alert Datera of any software or hardware issues in real-time. Datera Support can be alerted to an issue before the customer notices it. To ensure the highest security during call home and remote support activities, alerts and log bundles are transferred to the call home server securely using HTTPS, which utilizes TLS/SSL encryption.

Phone Support

Datera Support is available to answer questions and resolve issues promptly and efficiently by trained technical support engineers. All cases are assigned a priority based on their impact on customer operations.

Engineering involvement on support cases

In addition to the availability of highly trained professionals to provide the fastest quality support to customers, Datera’s development team is also readily available to engage directly with customers depending on the situation.

Email Support

For non-urgent issues, contacting Datera Support via email is recommended – Response will be prompt and a case will be logged to track resolution.

Online Support

Online access to the case management system is available to authorized customer contacts, allowing you to log new cases, review existing cases and update information on an open case, while also giving access to knowledge base articles and solutions to known issues.

Hardware Support

For hardware appliances, Datera will ship to the customer field replaceable units (FRU) especially NL-SAS HDDs or SATA SSDs on detecting failure. All other cases, Datera will ship the node in error.

On-site Support

For mission critical deployments, Datera can provide trained technical field service professionals to help with diagnosis and repair.

Software Updates

Datera Support will notify customers of software updates (patches and new releases). A customer can trigger the software update process. Once triggered, the Datera System automatically updates the cluster through a rolling upgrade process that is non-disruptive to clients or applications.
