How a Remote DBA Can Save Company’s Money

By utilizing remote database administration (DBA), a company can preserve on hiring a full-time administrator in several ways, comprising on the number of hours, the level of professional service, and round-the-clock coverage.

A Company Only Pays For The Services it Needs

A company can save on the salary of hiring an in-house administrator, especially when it needs less than a full-time employee or when they need additional staff when current staff is overloaded and is pushing an employee to the brink of exhaustion.

With remote DBA services, a company will get only the service that is needed to maintain their database properly. This prevents a company from being forced to either burden an employee with additional duties that they are not competent in.

Additionally, this remote database administration is flexible: as the needs of a company change, the service will adapt to those needs, increasing or decreasing support as specified. In other words, with remote database administration, a company will get the exact level of help it needs.

A Company Can Access Different IT Professionals

When hiring an administrator, a company will usually pay top dollar for a highly skilled person. Although most of the work is routine maintenance, a high level of experience will be useful for those occasions when there is a database glitch or a difficult technical problem. This means that for the most part, a company is paying a high salary for routine work. Unfortunately, it has to do this because it cannot afford to hire someone who would need a higher level of expertise during an emergency or even with day to day tasks like performance tuning. Since a company’s database is essential for its operations, it cannot afford to cut costs by hiring someone with a beginner’s level of experience.

Round-The-Clock Service

Database problems may happen at inconvenient times. A glitch can happen in the early hours of the morning or when the in-house DBA administrator is away on vacation, in training, or at home sick. With remote DBA services, help is available immediately 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Moreover, this help is available year round, even during public holidays.
