    Regional Service & Support Availability Options

    Dell Services vary from region to region as Dell continues to scale and make consistent service offerings around the globe. The sections below describe those features available by region.

    Americas Support

    All of the services listed above are available in the US, Canada and Latin America. (NOTE: PESS is provided in English only, with limited Spanish-speaking TAM support available. Latin America is in the process of deploying PESS regionally). In particular, PESS Gold is the best option for a customer requiring immediate, highly trained support technicians. For details on the PESS support tiers, check these web pages:





    Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) Support

    Dell Services in Europe can provide PESS Gold level advanced software remote resolution support for Dell servers installed with Red Hat Professional, but do NOT offer the DirectLine +. In Europe, customers can purchase PESS Silver and Gold level support with 3-year Advanced Software Support that includes 3-advanced remote resolutions for the 3-year service contract life. PESS Gold is the recommended cost-competitive service package for the Red Hat professional customer.

    PESS services for Red Hat are currently available in English only but with limited French and German telephone/email support during regular business hours (9 a.m. - 5 p.m. GMT). Details on PESS in Europe can be found at:


    Dell Professional Services are available in limited regions and are currently in English only. The Dell | Red Hat alliance services selected regions. For more details on Professional Services in Europe:


    Asia/Pacific (APAC) support

    Support for Red Hat Linux Professional is provided directly from Red Hat support services in the Asia/Pacific region. Customers receive a drop-in-the-box service activation card. These services entitle customers to 90 days of web-based support (http://www.redhat.com/support), 90-days of telephone-based support (includes basic setup and configuration), and 180-days of Red Hat Network subscription services. Additionally, Red Hat’s service provides 1-incident support for an advanced software or configuration resolution.

    Dell PESS for Red Hat Linux will become available for the APAC region later this year. Please check the following web site for updates:


    Dell Professional Services is currently working to expand consulting and migration services into the region to be available in 2003.

    Japan Support

    Dell Japan provides PESS Gold level support for servers installed with Red Hat Linux Professional, including 3 remote software resolutions over the 3-year contract period. Customers can also purchase DirectLine Plus service packs in limited availability from Dell Japan.

    Japan currently does not offer Professional Services directly from Dell Japan, but are in the process of working with DPS and Red Hat to offer migration and HPCC capabilities.
