Severity Levels

Weaviate shall categorize Support Tickets based on Customer’s characterization of the Severity Level. If Weaviate disagrees with Customer’s characterization of the Severity Level, Weaviate will notify Customer and the parties will act in good faith to establish a Severity Level. Weaviate shall provide an update on the investigation, resolution, or escalation of the Support Ticket within the response times set out in the table based on the Severity of the Support Ticket.

Scope of Service Inquiries

  • Support Requests: Incidents or problems encountered in the operation of the current Weaviate Product necessitating immediate attention to maintain or restore the expected service levels.
  • Service Requests: Inquiries from the Customer seeking additional services, new clusters, or modifications that extend beyond the existing scope of the Weaviate Product. These are categorized as non-urgent and project-based, requiring a separate assessment and planning process. The response and implementation timeline for these requests will be mutually determined, subject to resource availability, project complexity, and the terms set forth in the applicable Order Form.
