Postgresql Support Contracts

Postgresql Support Contracts

We offer 4 types of Postgresql support contracts, namely:

  • Asset based  -  a  fixed per server price for maintenance and troubleshooting,
  • Time based -   a set number of hours of support purchased per month,
  • Retainer based - pay a monthly fee and accumulate hours for when they are needed
  • Ad-hoc - pay a hourly rate for support when needed  

Asset Based Support Contract

Our asset based contracts cover standard maintenance, patching and troubleshooting of Postgresql with a charge per server hosting a Postgres cluster. This support covers routine, predictable tasks for production systems such as maintaining backups, replication , minor version upgrades etc. Our support is offered 09:00-17:00 (UTC+2hrs).   

As part of the contract a list of standard tasks will be draw up and form the basis of the service to be provided.

Asset Based Support Pricing

Should you require extended support outside business hours please contact us for pricing.

Number of Servers Duration Price Per Server Total Contract Price
2 12 months 6,000 12,000
3 12 months 5,500 16,500
4 12 months 4,500 18,000
5 12 months 4,000 20,000
5+ 12 months 300/additional server over 5 20,000 + 300/additional server


Time Based Support Contract

When the Postgres support you require is not simply maintenance and monitoring, but may involve more complex tasks such as setting up of a new cluster, data  migration or the implementation of new Postgresql extensions  then a time based contract will suit your needs. 

If you need assistance on an ongoing basis to spin up servers for dev and test or have an ongoing project to migrate production systems this contract might suit your requirements.

A time based contract entitles you to a maximum number of support hours per month. Purchased hours expire at the end of the month. Instead of buying hours however you buy points that expire at a predefined rate per hour depending on level of support required and priority.
