    Severity Levels / Response Times for Premium Support

    Customer-reported product failures and questions are addressed by our Customer Champions according to a priority scheme based on the problem severity and potential customer impact. You will set your own severity level when contacting a Customer Champion to ensure that you receive the attention necessary to resolve your problem.

    Severity Levels & Response Times for Premium Support
    Severity Level Description/Criteria Initial Response Time Recommended Contact Method
    1 - Critical The use of CrashPlan PROe is stopped or so severely impacted that you cannot reasonably continue work. You experience a complete loss of service and/or encounter one of the following scenarios:
    • Inability to restore from backup
    • Inability to renew your account
    • Account has expired
    For managed appliance related issues:
    • A RAID array has failed or gone offline
    • The managed appliance(s) is offline or will not boot
    1 hour Phone
    2- High

    You experience a severe loss of service. Operations can continue in a restricted fashion, although long-term productivity might be adversely affected and a temporary workaround is unavailable.

    For managed appliance related issues:

    • A RAID array is degraded
    • Disk space is critically low
    4 hours Web or chat
    3 - Medium

    You experience a minor loss of service, which results in a partial, non-critical loss of functionality of the software. The impact is an inconvenience, which may require a workaround to restore functionality.

    For managed appliance related issues:

    • A disk drive has failed and is being replaced by your hot spare
    • Disk space is low and adding storage space should be considered
    1 business day Web or chat
    4 - Low You request information, report a documentation error, or recommend a future product improvement but there is little to no impact on the operation of the software. 3 business days Web

    What Your Support Plan Covers

    This plan provides you, our customer, with the ability to contact Customer Champions directly for issues related to our CrashPlan PROe or Managed Private Cloud solutions. This service includes the following:

    • Unlimited support calls regarding CrashPlan PROe product solutions. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
    • Severity 1 Response Service – Customer Champions will make every effort to respond to any Severity 1 / system down CrashPlan PROe or managed appliance related issue typically within 1 hour of receipt of your issue.  A critical issue is defined as situations where a CrashPlan PROe production system is down and/or non-operational or the managed appliance RAID array has failed or the appliance is offline and/or will not boot.
    • Monitoring and management is provided if a managed appliance solution was purchased.

    Managed Appliance Considerations

    • The Customer Champions need network access to the managed appliance, so that we can take full responsibility for managing event reporting and resolution.
    • By default, customers are not allowed management access to the managed appliance (this includes root, shell, ssh access). As a result of this, the Customer Champions will need all other necessary access and permissions to monitor and manage your managed appliance.
    • The Customer Champions maintain exclusive administrative access to the managed appliance itself.
    • If access is restricted, the Customer Champions cannot commit to specific response times as noted in the Severity section.

    Customer Responsibilities

    Customers must ensure they use the identified support methods of requesting services and clearly explain the nature of the issue or request for help.  When Customers are required to assist with the resolution of their problem or the finalization of their request, they should be available at the agreed upon time.
