When you need Technical Assistance
Customers with Standard Support
Issues that are specific to the Open-Source Development Kit may need to be redirected to the GsDevKit mailing list.
Customers with 24×7 Support Contracts
24×7 support is an optional addition to a standard support contract. This allows immediate assistance for production down or potential production down issues.
Customers with 24×7 support with a production down issue should:
- immediately call the 24×7 hotline phone number.
- also submit a ticket providing more detailed information.
The 24×7 hotline number is provided privately, directly to contract customers.
Customers without Support Contracts
GemStone users that do not have support contracts may ask their questions on the Customer forum. This list is monitored by GemTalk staff, as well as customers and active members of the GemStone community.
This list is also a place to ask questions that are outside the expertise of Technical Support, such as third party software.
