HPE Support Services overview

As one of the world’s leading vendors of IT hardware, HPE has developed a portfolio of support services to suit every customer’s need.

When you purchase your HPE hardware, the item will be covered by limited warranty (sometimes known as standard or base warranty). This usually covers a three year period and the support available without charge is likely to be next business day on-site with access to HPE chat and the HPE Support Centre.

Packaged Service vs. Services Contract

Hewlett Packard Enterprise offers a portfolio of services that can be purchased either at the same time as the hardware or at any point during its supported life.

These services can be purchased as packaged services or a contract to suit your requirements:

Packaged Service

A PACKAGED SERVICE is a support agreement that is pre-determined for a specific piece of HPE equipment irrespective of the environment in which it operates or of its specific function.

Services Contract

SERVICES CONTRACTS are generally more applicable if you have in excess of 10 items of Hewlett Packard Enterprise hardware (servers, storage or networking devices) as they provide a more flexible way to purchase technical support services.

The table shows you the main differences between Packaged Service and Services Contract:
