Cloud-based systems have become the IT infrastructure of choice for many organizations, in all industries and of all sizes.
Users can now choose from a seemingly endless array of cloud platforms, services and applications, including all manner of cloud database.
That's changing the nature of database deployments: A late 2021 survey of cloud users by IT management tools vendor Flexera found that data warehouses and relational databases were the two most popular PaaS technologies, respectively used by 55% and 49% of responding organizations.
Managing and maintaining a database system, including tasks such as installation, configuration, security, backup, recovery, performance monitoring and tuning, and data migration
Our team will focus on some Key areas :
SQL Server configuration if running on Premises or IaaS environment
Once your SQL Server environment is running we will provide Maintenance Support
SQL server security involves implementing measures such as data masking, row level security, and encryption to protect data from unauthorized access and ensure compliance with data protection regulations.
Implement database security best practices including
Authentication to support SQL and Windows Authentication
different levels of authorization to control access to the data.
Various encryption methods to protect data at rest and in transit.
Auditing features to track and record activities performed on the data.
Always Encrypted: SQL Server encrypts data at rest and in transit.
High Availability, Backup & Recovery
High availability for a database refers to the ability of the system to remain operational and accessible with minimal downtime, achieved through technologies like fail over clustering and availability groups
High availability ensures that a system remains operational despite any potential failures. Backup involves creating copies of data to prevent data loss, while recovery restores data to its previous state after a failure. By adopting these strategies, businesses can reduce downtime, prevent data loss, and protect their reputation.
Performance Tuning & Monitoring
Managing and maintaining a database system, including tasks such as installation, configuration, security, backup, recovery, performance monitoring and tuning, and data migration.
Performance tuning involves identifying and resolving performance issues, while monitoring tracks system performance to identify potential issues. Common areas for performance tuning include resource utilization, application tuning, and database tuning. Performance monitoring involves tracking system metrics, application metrics, and database metrics to identify bottlenecks and issues.
Effective cost management is essential for the success of any business. It involves the process of planning, controlling, and reducing expenses to increase profitability. To achieve this, businesses must identify all costs associated with their operations and find ways to manage them efficiently.
Database auditing is the process of monitoring and recording database activities to ensure optimal functionality, prevent unauthorized access or changes, and detect potential security breaches. It involves the collection, analysis, and reporting of activities such as logins, logouts, data modifications, and changes to database structures.
Why Is Cloud DBA
