24/7 Remote DBA Support Provide Convenience and Security
A DBA is a responsible person behind repairing, maintaining, tuning, a database and to provide support related to other functions. They also may be involved in implementing security measures to protect the data. In the past, many companies had their DBA that performed tasks on behalf of the employer. It is becoming more obvious, however, for businesses to outsource the production support characters of these services and use a team of remote DBAs.
If they don’t need the full-time support of their database, they are not getting sufficient value on having a representative to perform this service or have this person split between other responsibilities that take away from optimizing the performance of the database or other aspects of maintaining it. There are several inferences that a company should consider hiring a 24X7 remote DBA support. The first thing companies should do when considering this is to find out what their support needs are.
If their support needs exceed 40 hours a week, then having an employee who is only supposed to work 40 hours a week is not adequate for the requirements of the company. The company also needs to consider that more often than not, their database will only require maintenance on a routine basis. A remote DBA is a better choice for many businesses. Remote administrators for the business’s systems work as a team and can be available at all hours of the day, providing backup and support 24 hours of the day, seven days a week.
If you still have DBA’s they can work closely with your staff and help minimize the expense of expanding it. If the database goes down over a weekend or on holiday, the company will not need to wait until the in-house DBA is back at work to have their systems fixed. Waiting until the weekend or holiday is over is not possible for the majority of businesses, because in the current climate, this can result in lost customers, lost sales, and lost revenue in general, which can be devastating. Hiring an outsourced team of administrators also will give companies access to technical professionals who can perform daily mundane tasks to keep up the database.
