SoftNAS is dedicated to providing efficient and superior support. There are three levels of SoftNAS support: Bronze, Silver and Gold. By default, support starts at Bronze. When you login to the StorageCenter™ UI within the product, you will be prompted to register to upgrade to either Silver support (at no extra cost) or Gold Support. You can always register later by clicking the “Product Registration” link in the top right corner of StorageCenter. Free Trials (first 30 days on all instances) are eligible for Silver and Gold support. Free Tiers (perpetual free micro instance usage) are limited to Bronze support.

VMware Support Statement
Any time spent on investigation of problems that may, in the sole opinion of SoftNAS, Inc. be related to VMware, will be handled in the following fashion:
- SoftNAS, Inc. will provide standard support to all SoftNAS products.
- If a problem is encountered while SoftNAS is running in a VMware environment, the client may be required to recreate the problem and demonstrate the issue in a SoftNAS VMware environment, at which time SoftNAS, Inc. will provide regular support.
- The client can authorize SoftNAS, Inc. to investigate the VMware related items at normal time and materials rates. If such investigation shows that the problem is VMware related, the client may contract SoftNAS, Inc. to provide a software change to resolve the issue, if such a resolution is possible.
- Regardless of the problem type or source, if the problem is determined to be a non VMware related issue – time spent on investigation and resolution will be covered as part of regular SoftNAS maintenance, and support will be provided as usual.
