Remote DBA Services for SQL Server

Do you have a great IT team that is missing a database administrator?

Many small to medium-sized businesses are faced with this issue. You rely on your SQL Server everyday and you know that it is critical for business continuity. You also know that you don’t have enough database work to justify the salary of a full-time database administrator. A remote DBA is an excellent cost-effective option for getting the expert help you need without hiring a full-time DBA.

Whether you are looking for someone to help with general database administration tasks or just looking for an expert set of eyes on a your SQL environment, I can help.

I can be available to help with the following scenarios and much more:

  • You start to experience performance issues. Is it a hardware issue, a code issue, or a SQL Server configuration issue? I can help you quickly identify the root cause for your slow performance.
  • You are experiencing a database outage. When your database goes down, you need someone who can quickly diagnose and resolve the issues. I can help you get your critical business applications back online.
  • You need high availability for your SQL Server but you aren’t sure what your options are. I can look at your environment, discuss your requirements and help you navigate the many options you have. Examples include Always On Failover SQL Server clustering, Always On Availability Groups, Replication, Log Shipping, and Database Mirroring.
  • You need help with disaster recovery. I can help you design a robust backup solution following best practices, so that you can have peace of mind knowing that your databases can be recovered in the event of a failure.
  • You need need help with extracting, transforming, and loading (ETL) data. Often times, companies need to extract data from a database, transform it into a specific format, and load it somewhere for consumption. I have a lot of experience using SQL Server Integration Services and SQL Server jobs for building ETL solutions.
  • You need to offload some of your database administration workload. I can assist with anything from creating logins and permissions, to setting up new applications, to developing custom T-SQL statements, and everything in between.
