Remote DBA Services for Microsoft SQL Server

I’m Brent Ozar.

Your business relies on SQL Server every single day.

When your database goes down, you need someone who can diagnose the root cause quickly and get your business back online. You’re tired of fumbling in the dark. You want to be able to pick up the phone and talk to someone you know – who also knows your business. You don’t want to talk to some unskilled stranger who’s going to tell you to reboot.

When your database is slow, you want an independent outsider who can analyze whether it’s a code problem, a hardware issue, or SQL Server itself.

When your business wants to plan ahead, you need someone who keeps up with the latest advancements and stays trained on the newest high availability options.

All of this sounds great – but you don’t have enough work to keep a full time database administrator busy. You’ve only got a couple/few SQL Servers.

The right remote DBA service can help.

The right service will designate a lead remote DBA specifically for you, and they’ll get to know you and your business. Most of the time, when you contact them, you’ll get them directly. When you have an after-hours emergency, if your lead person isn’t available, the firm will have other qualified folks too.

The right service will have a predictable monthly or quarterly fee based on the number of hours you want or the number of servers you have. You’ll be able to roll over hours if you don’t use them so that you’re not flushing money down the drain.

But it needs to be the right service. The wrong service shuffles you around between a bunch of unqualified help desk folks, and charges you a ton of money just to be disappointed.

I’ll help find you find the right remote DBA.

Maybe it’s my team – or maybe it’s someone else from my network. I’ve worked with SQL Server for over 20 years, and I’m very active in the community. I know which firms are awesome for which clients, and which firms should be avoided.
