Maintenance Service

Maintenance is at the very core of the services Exasol offers you. Essentially, it provides you with support for handling error reports in cases where the software is not functioning as described in the documentation. As part of the maintenance service, you also have access to a personalized support website, the latest version of Exasol, as well as other downloads.

Maintenance time

Exasol software maintenance support is provided during german business hours (Germany/Berlin).

Sizing and Planning Service

Exasol's experts will discuss your requirements with you and provide a comprehensive consultation regarding cluster sizing, setup and integration of Exasol in your environment.

Installation service

Exasol will install Exasol software and get it operational at the site. This means you only need to set up the environment and organize the necessary conditions, such as wiring, network setup, preparation of servers, etc.

Operational Service

Exasol carries out regular maintenance tasks on your behalf, either as required or upon your request. 

Incident Management 10x5 (or optionally 24x7)

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 operation. Examples include: a database instance does not accept connections, a backup cannot be generated, or one or more hardware components are defective. In the event of an incident, Exasol works to restore the standard operation of the Exasol cluster as quickly as possible. 

Monitoring 24x7

Exasol will monitor your Exasol system using a software-based system monitor with an automated incident report system. 

Performance Service

Exasol will periodically monitor general performance trends (on a monthly basis) and provide performance analysis upon request during Exasol's service times.
