Support and Warranty Plans

One Stop Systems offers our customers several support options to match the requirements of a wide variety of deployment scenarios. This choice of support structure provides the capability to optimally fit your business size, system type, response time and budget. One Stop Systems reliability starts in design. Our products offer data center level redundancy of the most failure prone parts such as power supplies, drives and fans as well as advanced remote monitoring capability via our integrated system monitors. Most of the basic system components are easily replaceable through our parts replacement services, or through strategic onsite spares. In the unlikely event that a service call is required for non-standard parts, we offer a choice of basic depot warranty return to Advanced Warranty Replacement (AWR) all the way to a full Gold level plan featuring 24/7, 4-hour onsite service with a spare parts kit stocked locally.

This warranty and support plan applies to all orders placed after 1/1/2021

Support Plan offerings improve the length of warranties, response times to new issues, and if necessary, provide faster shipping times if a part replacement is necessary.

Standard warranty: All OSS products come with a 1-year warranty unless otherwise specified.

Bronze service agreements: Bronze level agreements extend the standard warranty of an OSS product for the number of years specified in the agreement. Otherwise, the terms of service remain the same.

Silver service agreements: Silver level agreements improve technical issue response times, faster shipping, and cross-shipping for part replacements.

Gold service agreements: Gold level agreements further improve technical issue response times, overnight shipping, and cross-shipping for part replacements.

Response methods: Support can respond to new issues in multiple ways and will try to make this as convenient as possible for the contact. We can respond to cases using email, the OSS support portal, or phone. All after normal business hours engagements with gold support agreements require a phone call to the OSS technical support team.

The terms below describe the Support Services available for One Stop Systems hardware and software product lines (“Products”), including the various Support Plans, and are subject to the terms and conditions of the Support Services Agreement between One Stop Systems, Inc. (the “Provider”) on the one hand, and you (the “Customer”), on the other hand (“Agreement”) and they constitute an integral part of the Agreement.

Support Service Types

1. Support

Provider will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Support Services in accordance with the applicable Support Plan. Software Releases, if offered under a Support Plan, are provided with remote support and subject to the applicable end user license agreement. Software Support is provided only for software that is a component included by or on behalf of Provider in a Product delivered by or on behalf of Provider. Software Support does not cover software purchased from a third party for use in a Product or which is otherwise not a component of the Product; for such third party software, Customer must seek support from the maker of such software. For Hardware Support, Provider will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Support Services in accordance with the applicable Support Plan, subject to the following

a. Provider is not responsible for transportation or customs delays;
b. Provider is not responsible for delays due to equipment moved by Customer to a new physical install location.

2. Hardware Replacement Return

a. In the event of a hardware failure, Customer must contact the Provider support department for hardware failure validation and troubleshooting. After the support department has validated the hardware failure, Customer will receive a Return Material Authorization (“RMA”) number. To ensure proper tracking and handling of returned hardware or material (e.g., spares), all material returned to Provider must have a RMA number assigned prior to the return. Hardware returns that are improperly packaged or do not include the required information and RMA numbers maybe refused and returned to the Customer at their expense. Customer may be billed for the replacement Product if Customer retains the defective hardware without Provider’s written consent.
b. Customer is responsible for removing all information and data that Customer has stored on any memory, including but not limited to hard disk drives and solid state drives (“drives”) before Customer returns the drives for repair or replacement. Customer is responsible for ensuring that it removes any kind of removable media (e.g., tapes, CDs, USBs) prior to returning any drives.
