Why HPE Packaged Support Services?
HPE support services expand and extend standard warranties for HPE hardware and software, providing hardware and software support, alongside installation and education services. A support service can be used to deploy new systems and services sooner, to use hardware and software more effectively, to help prevent system downtime.
In the event of failure a support services can provide precisely the right level of response and simplifies support procurement; just deploy the packaged support service that exactly matches the needs of your customer, no more, no less.
Customers are able to upgrade their Service level Agreement (SLA) at any point during the coverage period or even extend the support after the warranty has expired. For example, they may wish to upgrade from Foundation Care Next Business Day, to Foundation Care 4 hour response / 24x7 coverage. Whilst support services can only be sold as an attach to hardware equipment within 6 months from the date of purchase, contractual services and post warranty products are available to provide support in all other instances.
