Sometimes you need more than Ask Me Anything support. For times like this, we're available to bring our team's Rails deployment and operations expertise to bear for more hands-on support. Here are just a few examples of services we can provide as Custom Support:
Custom Support is billed at $175/hour. It has a 30 minute minimum and is billed in 15 minute increments. Depending on the scope of the work, Custom Support is typically completed within 1 business day depending on our schedule. You will definitely receive a reply within 24 hours letting you know when we expect to be able to complete your work and a rough estimate of the time needed. If you require less than 1 business day turnaround, we offer Urgent Support.
Our support staff is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for Urgent Support. Upon recieving a request for Urgent Support, our automated systems will page an on-call engineer. This engineer will respond to your request within 15 minutes, and begin working immediately.
Urgent Support to reboot a server that has become unavailable via SSH is always free. Any other Urgent Support is billed at $250/hour in increments of 1 hour. We will always confirm with you before we perform any work as Urgent Support unless you explicitly request it.
