DBA Services Comprehensive SQL Server Database Administration Services


DBA Services' preferred operating model is to be looked upon as being a natural extension to your existing infrastructure support team, and as an escalation point for in-house DBAs on any SQL Server infrastructure related issues.

We recognises that many organisations will have Microsoft systems administrators to look after a client's infrastructure, but often can't justify the costs associated with having a dedicated SQL Server specialist on hand. This gap in support can expose a business to serious risks of unrecognised data corruption, data loss, lost productivity due to slow performing databases and at its worst, costly unplanned outages if SQL server matters aren't attended to and resolved quickly.

For businesses who already have an existing SQL Server DBA, our support model works hand-in-hand with existing DBAs (we love our own kind), and can provide them with an additional escalation point and also help to manage work overflows, and provide coverage while they're on leave.

And with managed SQL support plans starting from as little as $537ex-GST, ensuring your SQL servers are protected 24*7*365 has never been more cost effective!


If your business develops software solutions for customers that rely on SQL Servers then our SQL support services are the perfect partnership to ensure that your clients' SQL Servers get configuration correctly, are properly optimised for your solution to keep things running fast, while also ensuring requirements for recover-ability and availability are also met.

DBA Services offers comprehensive SQL Server installation services that compliment your software offering through appropriate index maintenance and backup configurations, monitoring and alerting on issues and can even lock down SQL environments to ensure only your development team has the required access to manage the SQL instance that supports your software.

All too often we find great software solutions that back onto un-maintained SQL Servers, which impacts the performance of the application and reflects poorly on your business - something which all too easily can be avoided.

Our specialist DBAs offer a cost-effective alternative to in-house resourcing, with the peace of mind that your company’s data and business systems are managed by specialists.

Most businesses cannot justify employing a specialist database administrator, and often compromise by hiring systems administrators who know how to restore a database. This often leads to SQL Server misconfigurations that can hurt a business through slow performance and potentially costly outages.

SQL Services around Database Administration

A SQL Server administrator brings much more to the table than just performing new SQL installations (which most non-DBAs fail to provision correctly) and ensuring that your SQL backups complete successfully. Sure, backups and making sure that your SQL infrastructure is recoverable is possibly the most critical aspect, the skill set of your DBA extends far beyond this.

DBA’s speak the language of both your database developers, as well as your infrastructure team and are the ultimate mediators / translators in the ongoing war between dev and ops. DBAs can diagnose specific transaction workloads to identify where the SQL compiler is struggling, whether that’s due to a missing index or if there is an underlying infrastructure bottleneck which needs to be addressed. The DBA can relay this information using hard-statistics so there’s no more finger pointing between developers who say infrastructure is slow, and sys-admins who blame a developers dodgy code.
