DBA on tap - A new way to keep track of your databases

Information is the lifeblood of your business. It needs to flow freely through your IT systems without the risk of clogs and bottlenecks between databases.

What does it look like at your place? Do you have control of your business data and databases?

We often get into discussions about who owns the content of a database. It is common to have three parties in the discussion. The customer, the application provider and us as the infrastructure provider. Many companies and organisations have poor control over their databases. One of the reasons is of course the lack of an in-house Database Administrator, DBA, who is used to advanced troubleshooting and optimization of both instances and databases. We often see examples of companies that have very large environments and lack control over everything from backups to licensing. Not keeping track of your licenses often leads to paying way too much money for your environment. With the right expert help, you can reduce your costs significantly.

How often do your applications run slowly and no one knows what's causing it?

This question is not uncommon but the answer can sometimes be hard to find. It is not uncommon that the problem lies somewhere between the application and the database. Many times both the application and the database need to be optimized to achieve acceptable performance. Solving this type of problem normally requires a high level of expertise as both a developer and a DBA, which is a combination that is not very common.

Who calls the business when problems arise?

Of course, all companies and organisations have backups of their databases...or think they do. In our experience, only 10% of companies perform full restores of their backups annually. The vast majority assume that if something serious happens, it will be resolved. In our world, there is a big red warning light on those who don't do a full recovery several times each year. How dare you take the chance that your most valuable asset, your company's information, can be read back when disaster strikes? Incidents also have the ability to happen at weekends and at night, and who do you call?
