How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

I only have the free version, which does not have customer service.

Technical Support:

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We use Cisco ASA and Nagios devices alongside the MySQL server as our network infrastructure needs expanding and required more serious hardware solutions.
