SQL Server Monitoring & Virtual DBA Service

The need for a Database Administration Service

The rapid rise in the volume of databases and data collected by SME and Enterprise organisations means that security, reliability, disaster recovery, high availability and monitoring are more important than ever.

Increasingly, organisations have a DBA (Database Administrator) requirement but do not have the need (or the budget) for a full time qualified resource.
 
Our Virtual DBA Service accommodates those needs via regular planned activities as well as an SLA backed support package.

Benefits of the Virtual DBA Service

Extended Skills Availability

Database Administrators are technically qualified people dedicated to the maintenance of databases, including data quality, DR, HA and performance. However, there are times when your organisation will need technical or strategic skills outside of this technical arena, such as planning for GDPR, PCI Compliance, Data Protection Act, Systems integration and ISO regulations. All of which require a different skillset.

Our Virtual DBA Service gives you the flexibility to call on any or all of these skills from our pool of experienced consultants.

Cost Efficiency

Your costs are more efficient because you only pay for the time that you need a DBA and not for a permanent team member.

Access to Complimentary Resources

Database related work often requires skillsets or consultancy outside of DBA sphere of knowledge such as application migration or virtualisation provisioning.

Using our Virtual DBA Service will give your organisation access to a plethora of knowledge and expertise from other industry professionals in related areas.
