Introducing Celestix Managed Services

Historically, Celestix support operated on a classic model, providing break/fix services for customers with an active support contract. Many of our customers wanted to proactively maintain, and manage services on the Celestix platform. This was primarily to reduce downtime, and unplanned outages. Instead of waiting for things to break, and then open a support case, customers started seeking proactive support from the Celestix support team. They wanted preventive maintenance, and continuous monitoring to avoid potential issues.

In order to cater to the growing demand of Managed Services from the customers, Celestix introduced two new, support programs – Proactive and Proactive +. Customers can now purchase a Managed Services support contract, and enlist Celestix support engineers to provide full system management, from the appliance to the application. Celestix support engineers provide proactive monitoring services, and limited monitoring of downstream applications and dependent services. The option to have a dedicated technical account manager (TAM), who provides quarterly health checks, and monthly system status reports, is also available.
