|QUMULO ONSITE||We’ll work together to determine if a Qumulo representative should come on-site to help resolve the issue.||Most on-site visits are for “break-fix” scenarios. We’ll make sure the product swap goes smoothly. We may also decide, during the visit, to resolve some software issues.|
|HARDWARE REPLACEMENT PARTS||
Qumulo repairs or replaces any hardware that fails during your Hardware Support term at no cost.
Field replacement units include: HDDs, SSDs, power supplies, fans, optics, cables, NICs, and whole nodes.
|Replacements are shipped with next business day delivery as soon as the Qumulo Customer Success team verifies the failure of the original component and approves its replacement.|
|NEW SOFTWARE RELEASES||You have access to the most current version of Qumulo software.||New features and bug fixes may be included in each new software release.

Outage, data loss or corruption. Example: Cluster is down or there are not enough nodes up to form a quorum.
High business impact, but the cluster is still functional. Example: A node is down but the cluster is still in quorum.
Bad bug, but a workaround is available. Example: Poor performance if you ls and dd from the same client. The workaround could be to mount two different nodes and run ls against node 1 and dd against node 2.
Poor user experience or annoyance. Example: A hover dialog lingers for ~5s after changing.
Cosmetic, other. Example: Change in the background color of a dialog box.
