|DISC automated libraries
typically service numerous users who depend on continuous availability
of the library for direct access to data.
In order to meet customer requirements for high data availability,
end user installations should be covered by a service contract with
a qualified DISC service provider.
Prior to a call for library service, the problem should be isolated
to the library component of the system. Normally the end user contacts
system support from a system integrator, who subcontracts library
service from a DISC service organization.
The system integrator is normally responsible for the library system.
In some cases, the system integrator may be qualified to service
the library. In some cases, the end user may hold responsibility
for system support and may also be qualified to service the library.
DISC supports its service organizations with training, parts replacement,
telephone support and on-site support as required.
