Services Add-On Menu

To better cater to all types of customer environments, the Brocade Support portfolio includes an add-on menu of features to supplement base support contracts. Customers with support from Brocade receive the benefits of proactive and preferential support firsthand. The Services Add-On Menu builds on these same principles to provide additional flexibility with a set of features that reduce downtime and augment customer environments. Each Add-On menu item is sold separately in addition to the base support contract.

From interfacing directly with experts at the Brocade Technical Assistance Center (TAC) to Professional Services consultants who test the environment, the Services Add-On Menu includes many enhancements to the support and services that are available from Brocade.
