Teradata Product Support Policies

Support Services

Overview

2020年欧洲杯预测冠军Unless otherwise stated, these policies apply to maintenance and support for Teradata, Aster Data, and Hadoop software, and Teradata equipment (hardware).

“Customer” refers to the entity that has ordered maintenance and support from Teradata.

To receive maintenance or support services from Teradata as described in the Support Level descriptions below, Customer must: (i) have a signed Teradata Master Agreement including Maintenance & Support terms; (ii) have a signed maintenance order that specifies the Products, their applicable Support level, the elected Optional Service Enhancements (if any) and the rates (iii) have currently licensed and supported software versions and (iv) pay a maintenance and support fee.  Certain subscription-based software licenses include Premier Support specific to that type of software or product (Equipment and Software).

Teradata may use subcontractors in the performance of certain support tasks and locations. Teradata uses a “follow the sun” global delivery model whereby maintenance and support, as described in this document, may be performed in any of our centers to leverage the skills and talents of individuals throughout the world.  Any Customer required restrictions to this delivery model are considered non-standard by Teradata and may result in additional charges and/or changes to the maintenance and support policies described in this document.  Any changes to the delivery of maintenance and support due to customer restrictions on Teradata’s global delivery model must be agreed to in writing.

“Teradata Access” is Teradata’s web-based 24x7 support and service portal formerly known as Teradata at Your Service.”  Teradata Access provides valuable support service information, such as user documentation, the ability to download software and patches, 24 x 7 logging and tracking of incidents, and links to best practice documents.  Teradata Access also provides links to the other Teradata service portals such as Teradata Operations Management (TOM) and IntelliCloud Management Console (IMC).  Registration and login at http://access.auropoltours.com.

Teradata Product Support Policies are subject to change without notice at Teradata’s discretion.  Teradata’s policy changes will not result in a material reduction to the level of the services provided to Customer for supported products during the contracted support period (defined on a service order) for which fees for such support have been paid.

Premier Support

2020年欧洲杯预测冠军Teradata offers maintenance and support for its products under the Premier Support umbrella of services.  Each Premier Support offer is specific to the type of product (equipment and software) that is being maintained and supported.  Certain support may not be available for all products.  Backup and Restore (BAR) software and Hadoop software may be licensed from a third-party or bear the copyright or logo of Teradata.

Teradata will provide a support card upon start of support that includes details of how to contact Teradata, certain support processes and basic customer responsibilities for obtaining support.  The support card may be modified at any time.

Problems & Incidents

A “problem” is defined as failure of a product (hardware or software) to conform to its then current, customer level documentation. Generally, a problem refers to a product not operating within its designed specifications.  An “incident” is a request for service.  Each incident must have a severity assigned to it.

Incident Severities:
  • Severity 1:2020年欧洲杯预测冠军  Mission critical system is down, corrupted, or so severely degraded that it is unusable and requires immediate attention to return system to service.

  • Severity 2:2020年欧洲杯预测冠军  System is up and operational, but problem has a severe, on-going daily impact to business which requires immediate engagement and urgent resolution efforts. 

  • Severity 3:  Problem has a medium impact to business; resolution efforts can occur over the next several days. 

  • Severity 4:2020年欧洲杯预测冠军  Problem has low impact to operations; near term resolution is not required; additional research, information, or clarification on documentation is needed to address a question.

2020年欧洲杯预测冠军When an incident is designated Severity 1 or 2, Customer understands it will be necessary to provide Teradata with immediate, secure remote access to the affected product.  Customer acknowledges that if access is delayed or not provided as requested by Teradata, problem resolution efforts will be impaired and may delay resolution of the problem.

2020年欧洲杯预测冠军Customers with Internet access agree to report all Severity 3 and 4 incidents through Teradata Access. Customer further agrees that support requests classified as a “question” will be only be assigned a Severity 4.  Customer will receive an electronic confirmation of all incidents created via Teradata Access.  Teradata will activate its Auto Incident Create diagnostic tool to create incidents based on certain alerts and thresholds.

Implementing a Field Retrofit Order (FRO) - see Installation of Hardware Engineering Changes or Field Retrofit Orders (FROs),2020年欧洲杯预测冠军 a resolution to a reported problem, or other remedial maintenance will not alter the Problem Severity.

Requesting Service

2020年欧洲杯预测冠军Teradata will provide Customer with User access to Teradata’s service portal, Teradata Access and where applicable, telephone information, for requesting support if Customer is experiencing a problem with supported products and will activate its Automatic Incident Creation Diagnostic Tool.  Customer may report problems and request support 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, however, Teradata will provide support during the Hours of Coverage specified on the Order.  

Coverage Hours

Hours of coverage must be the same for all equipment and software products.  The hours of coverage refer to the local time where Customer system is located except as noted in the Hours of Coverage and Response Time tables above. If service cannot be completed within the hours of coverage on the day that the service is requested, service will resume during the next occurring hours of coverage period.

2020年欧洲杯预测冠军If Customer is not directly connected to a Teradata service representative one will call Customer back within the response time Customer is entitled to. When Customer reports an incident through the support portal, a service representative will respond to the inquiry and manage it to resolution.

Remote response time is measured during Customer contracted hours of remote coverage by the interval Customer’s initial contact (via electronic receipt of incident or phone call) to Teradata and the first contact (via electronic receipt or phone call) with a Teradata representative.

On-site response time is measured during Customer contracted hours of on-site coverage as the interval between the dispatch of the service representative by the Teradata Service Center and his/her arrival at Customer site.  Dispatch of a service representative is at Teradata’s discretion.
