Who Uses RemoteDBA Services?

Many smaller companies without a dedicated DBA are prime candidates for RemoteDBA. If you can’t yet afford your own DBA or need to focus on other areas of your business, we can partner with you and help. Or perhaps your database is running fine but you are experiencing growth that will demand attention to your database. We've been there before and can prepare your database runway for a smooth takeoff. Finally, many of our RemoteDBA customers have their own DBAs but have temporary staffing issues that must not get in the way of critical business needs. With 3 levels of quality care available at value based prices there’s no excuse not to give your data and database the care they need now.

We will Monitor, Manage and Tune

The RemoteDBA service provides you with a fundamental monitoring setup that no database system should be without. We monitor your database in real time 24x7 and notify your staff when critical events occur that threaten systems operations. Regular status reports keep you appraised of the ongoing health of your database. Additionally, you get the added services of keeping your software up to date and patched, database technical support, escalated issue management, backup verification and an annual Architectural Health Check that reviews critical characteristics of your database against proven, best practices. Finally, your RemoteDBA tehcnical lead will provide capacity planning, setups for point-in-time-recovery, replication, dev/test environment setups, users/security, query tuning, table partitioning, and advice for worry-free care of your database infrastructure.

(1) To leverage EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager for the monitoring, the customer must provide a separate server to house the EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager server and its database.
(2) For backup verification the customer has to provide a separate server that can be used to verify the integrity of the backups .
(3) Query tuning is limited to identification of problem queries in the customer’s application/database combination. It does not include query redesign or query redevelopment, and EDB will not rewrite customer queries directly.
