Offers peace of mind

Our support continues until your service is restored. Each incident includes a two-hour block of expert time, which is enough to troubleshoot and recover from almost any MySQL failure. But if full resolution takes longer than usual due to problem complexity, we will keep working until the problem is fixed.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I pay for services?

On-Demand Emergency for MySQL is a pre-paid service. There is a 2-hour minimum per incident meaning you will need to pre-pay at least two hours in order to be able to request our assistance with an emergency. If resolution takes longer than 2 hours, you will be charged additional fee for every 15 minutes beyond the initial 2-hour block. Such additional fee will be charged to your credit card. If you wish to keep your charges under control, you may request us to ask for your permission to exceed the 2-hour block.

What constitutes billable time?

Billable time is all effort made by our experts on your request and behalf. For example, it may include things like orientation to your problems and environment, establishing access, performing analyses, experimentation, composing emails, drafting reports. We pride ourselves for being extremely efficient and often complete work much sooner than you would expect.

Do you need access to my systems or data?

In order to help you with an emergency effectively, we will require access to every system and database directly affected by the emergency.

What billing method do you use?

Each On-Demand Emergency incident includes 2 hours of billable time. In rare cases resolving your problem may take longer, our billing system will then automatically switch to an hourly rate with 15-minute increments. In other words, it will charge 1/4 of the hourly rate for every 15 minutes started. For example, if your problem takes us 2 hours 10 minutes to resolve, you will only be charged for additional fifteen minutes and not for another full hour.

Can you provide a time estimate for resolving my emergency?

More than 9 out of 10 emergencies can be resolved within the intial two hours already included in the Emergency Incident package. However, problems behind emergencies are very diverse and come with many unknown variables to create any reliable estiamtes.

How do you access your customers' systems?

We connect remotely over the Internet using secure protocols like SSH or VPN, or using other tools requested or approved by you such as Remote Desktop or TeamViewer.
