Our Commitment is to Have You Up and Running - at the Performance that We Promised You!

Hardware Support and Warranty

First and foremost, we stand by our hardware.

We warrant that our systems (excluding custom systems) will be free from faulty parts and workmanship for a one year period from the day the unit is shipped. Hardware support is provided at no charge to the Customer. At the end of the warranty period, hardware problem diagnosis remains free, but charges will apply for replacement components.

  • * 3 Year extended warranty for $699 per system
Hard Drives:
  • Hard Disk Drives are covered under a separate warranty from the manufacturer.
  • ✓ WD Purple Drives 3 year replacement warranty

2 Free Hours of Support

This key service exemplifies the philosophy of 45Drives. With this free feature, our goal is to ensure you are up and running quickly, with the speed and performance we promised.

You can utilize this time by having a detailed configuration call with a 45Drives engineer, outline your needs and recieve expert advice and education required to achieve your goals. If you would prefer to keep your 2 Free Hours of support for the future and not for your initial setup, simply choose to have your Storinator Pre-configured, and bank it.

Storinator Pre-Configuration

45Drives will pre-configure your Storinator(s) so your server will be fully functional and ready to handle your storage needs when it arrives at your facitity.

Don't worry! If you choose NOT to have 45Drives pre-configure your server, you will still receive a fully assembled and tested Storinator pre-loaded with your chosen OS.

So, what does pre-configuration Include?

First and foremost, by having a 45drives engineer fully-configure your Storinator so you are completely up and running upon arrival, you can bank your 2 Free Hours of Support for any future needs.

In addition to that, we will:

  • Setup your preferred RAID array and filesystem on the OS of your choice
  • Network configuration (Network information required)
  • Setup Users and Groups (User information required)
  • Share configuration (NFS, AFP, SMB)
  • CTDB with Gluster FS
  • Gluster FS install and configuration (CentOS)
  • Gluster FS Brick creation or dataset creation

* Please note, occasionally some post-configuration and setup may be required once it arrives. This is included in your pre-configuration package. How much post-configuration that will be required will be determined.
