Remote MS SQL Database Administration and Development
IDC estimates that the amount of corporate data increases by 42% per year, every two years doubling database capacity requirements. With such escalation in size and complexity, database administrators are struggling with poor database performance/maintenance and data loss. Even when there are two or three people permanently involved with database administration (DBA) at an enterprise, absence of one of them can be a headache to the whole company.
Taking into account that most of a DB administrator’s workday is spent on repetitive, low-level administrative work, whose return on investment (ROI) is fairly low in spite of its high importance, remote DBA can help avoid hiring more. It also allows you to cut hidden costs associated with software/hardware, training, office space, and taxes that commonly increase the annual expenses on a single internal DBA specialist from $80,000 (salary) to at least $113,000.
Depending on the scope of work, remote DBA can help companies save up to 45% of their DBA spending and even more if there are two or three in-house administrators involved. During the last decade, the MSSQL DBA team at Altoros helped its customers (such as Microsoft, Autodesk, State of Oregon) improve ROI and cut costs associated with SQL Server database administration, replication, backup, and development without sacrificing reliability, uptime, or security of data.
