Maintenance is at the very core of the services EXASOL 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 EXASOLExasol, as well as other downloads.
Exasol software maintenance support is provided during business hours.
As depicted on Our Services page we offer our customer two types of service levels - Standard and Premium.
If you have to create a CRITICAL or MAJOR ticket outside GERMAN (CET/CEST time) business hours you must additionally call our support hotline.

Error Processing Timeline
When you notify us of an incident or an error in the software, we will confirm the receipt within the agreed reaction times, and will request additional information if required. Exasol does not send you automated replies; even if you get a standard reply, it means that a support agent has read and understood your inquiry and has started working on the ticket.
After receipt of the qualified error report, we will attempt to reproduce the error. If the error can be reproduced, our support agents will inform you within the processing time whether the cause is a software error and will provide an estimated time until a solution or fix is available.
If necessary, our support agents will discuss the next steps with you and may suggest a work-around to avoid downtime or operational problems. Once a work-around is provided, the solution time ends.
Our support agents are highly knowledgeable EXASOL Exasol experts who will provide you with assistance.
Reported Errors are differentiated according to the following priorities:
The priority is initially determined by customer. If customer does not make any statements about the priority, the reported Error will receive the priority level “Normal”.
Use only formal communication channels for dealing with support. In other words, please do not contact the support agents or presales resources directly.
