Zerto Support tickets are categorized according to “severity,” which considers the overall impact the customer is experiencing. The support ticket severity should be based on the guidelines of the Case Severity Definitions provided below. Since it is not possible to define every possible technical situation or impact, these definitions are intended to serve as guidelines.
Case prioritization is based upon several criteria including case severity, case creation timeline, business impact, customer’s contract, etc. When choosing a severity for a new ticket, please include the detailed symptom and problem description along with any other pertinent details that may influence case prioritization. Failure to supply critical information may result in delay of service.

Unable to recover or migrate an application and no workaround is available. Production environment is impacted or unavailable.
