Cloud Server Maintenance Service

The SBB cloud server lease includes standard level of technical support, which includes work assistance and engineer intervention during working hours from 8am to 5pm on weekdays, and from 10am to 3pm on Saturdays, by calling the hosting contact center at 0700 600 500 (only for fixed lines) or 011/3010500 (option 3), or by sending an email inquiry to contact address:

Users who choose to maintain server by themselves (unmanaged option) after selecting cloud server resources and operating system, get administrative/root access to the server. Unmanaged users have an option to send request to SBB engineers, for any on-demand intervention if needed. This service is charged according to the hours spent by the engineer.

For users who do not have system administrator, we suggest leasing a server with managed option. Within SBB offer, customers do not have investment in hardware and licenses purchases, backup care and training of IT staff to install and maintain the system. We can provide our knowledge to customer from creation, through implementation to maintenance.

If you choose managed option, SBB engineers take care of the server.
