When a server fails, it usually happens at the worst possible time, whats your IT Service providers commitment to your business? Do you have a Service Level Agreement to protect your business?

All major server manufacturers distributed by us come standard with an on-site manufacturers warranty and Service Level Agreement that covers the server for hardware support and hardware replacement, the average period of coverage is three years from the date of invoice. We can tailor the manufacturers support to meet your businesses requirements to give you peace of mind.

Lead Engineer Jason Replacing MotherboardIf you’re a Radiology Practice with an Intelerad MST1 server running on HP DL380 G10 server which becomes unresponsive at 4.50 pm, what do you do? Once we were on top of the issue and had determined that a new motherboard was required we had exhausted the remaining 10 minutes; it was now past 5 pm which is the cut off for Next Business Day support.

Any server is challenging to lose access too but to have an entire day without it and no possibility of fixing it you want to do everything in your power to keep the client going and restore redundancies in their infrastructure.

So after a couple of minutes of talking to different support engineers at HP, we were able to get the replacement motherboard part sent out without a Tech. As a result, we were able to apply the fix, which has meant that we have a chance of sorting out the server the next day.

After a couple of screws and bolts removed we were able to get the new motherboard installed. It solved part of the issue, but we later determined that a new array controller and the drive was required to get the server back to 100%.

In summary, Trucell’s Proactive IT Support coupled with manufacturer training and Trucell’s HP Gold Partnership gave us the support to get this server operational again and reduce the disruption to the clients business.
