Case Severity Definitions and SLAs

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 & Escalation

Case prioritization:

It 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.

Case escalation:

For details on escalating a case with Zerto Support, please review the following knowledge base article here:

If you have any issues submitting an escalation or are having other escalation issues, please contact the Zerto Support line.

Case Management

Cases can be opened via myZerto or directly from the Zerto User Interface. Then, they are managed through the portal or via email.

Opening a case via myZerto portal

It will be required to provide details relevant to your case regarding your environment and issue you are experiencing and choose a severity that will determine the SLA of the case.

Opening a case via Zerto UI

Creating a support case in the Zerto UI simplifies the submission process since much of the information that is required when entering a case using the Zerto Support Portal, such as the version and build numbers, is automatically added to the case when it is submitted via the Zerto User Interface.

Managing a case:

In order to update an existing case two options are available:

Using the myZerto portal:

  • Navigate to Support & Downloads Manage cases
  • Choose the case you would like to update
  • Click Add comment
