Can you provide firmware updates?

NO. Firmware is the intellectual property of the manufacturer. We will gladly perform a ClearView™ analysis of an estate to identify risks so customers can determine if firmware updates are needed. Firmware for Cisco UCS Blade and Rack servers is not limited to those which are legally licensed. SmartNet is required for Fabric Interconnects due to licensing. Using the risk-free ClearView assessment, Curvature will recommend the best strategy for your environment.

Are your parts manufacturer-certified?

YES. We utilize original parts with manufacturer models and firmware. We do not alter or replace parts with non-original components.

Do you stock parts locally?

YES. Our service centers are stocking locations where we stock high-failure components locally.

What does your four-hour onsite response include?

Our onsite response service level includes a qualified field engineer with the appropriate tools to begin remediation.

Do you support servers during the warranty period? And is there a price break?

YES. If it is a product we support, then the warranty status does not matter. We have an aggressive pricing structure — 50% lower.

What will I lose by leaving the manufacturer and signing with Curvature?

Nothing.

Are you an authorized support provider?

YES, with certain manufacturers. Our engineering team is composed of former manufacturer engineers who have found a home with us.
