SQL Server Running Slow?

I can help you with that!

Hi. I’m Daniel Dunn.

I’m a SQL Server consultant and full-time database administrator. I have been working with Microsoft SQL Server since 2011. I have worked in several industries, both public and private. I have a diverse technical background that includes system administration and full-stack web development, but SQL Server database administration has always been my primary area of expertise.

I specialize in emergency situations where businesses are experiencing outages due to problems with their SQL Server database environment. I have spent my career troubleshooting some extremely tough issues in complex enterprise SQL Server environments.

Here are some of the things I can help you with:

Performance Tuning

Long running queries? I can help you quickly identify and optimize your T-SQL.

Upgrades and Migrations

Looking to modernize your SQL Server? Thinking about moving to Azure or AWS?

SQL Server Health Check

A SQL Server health check can identify potential issues before they cause a major headache.

Remote DBA Services

Your business runs on SQL Server. From high availability to disaster recovery, I can help.

Why Choose Me?

There are a lot of Microsoft SQL Server database administrators offering consulting services out there. Most of the SQL Server consultants you find on the web claim to be omnipotent SQL Server gurus, promising to have all the answers. Unfortunately, in my experience as a SQL Server DBA, I have found that most people overstate their skills and overcharge for their services. 

So what differentiates me from other SQL Server consultants? 

My Experience – I currently work full-time as a DBA in a complex environment, and because of that, I am constantly fixing the very issues you are likely trying to resolve. I have been successfully troubleshooting and fixing SQL Server environments for over a decade.

I am Honest – You will never hear me claim to know everything there is to know. If I don’t have the answer and I don’t think I have the time to find it for you in a timely manner, I will give you my honest opinion for free and point you in the right direction.

I am Persistent – I am a determined problem solver. I have yet to encounter an issue that I have not been able to fix. I am highly focused and determined to get to the bottom of the toughest of SQL Server issues. Persistency always pays off.


Let’s Talk About You.

Now that you know a little bit about me, I would love to get to know about the the problems you are currently facing with SQL Server. I offer a free 30 minute consultation so that we can meet up to discuss your issues, and to see if I am a good fit for helping you resolve them. I am a big proponent of sharing information and truly enjoy helping people make SQL Server work for their business. I will be sharing SQL Server related content on my blog to hopefully help reduce confusion and help empower those facing SQL Server obstacles.
