SQL Server Remote DBA Service

Who is watching over your important SQL Servers? I bet you’d like to say “SQLskills is!”

Do you need a DBA but can’t afford a full-time team member? Or maybe there’s a hiring freeze, or your DBA just left you and your company high-and-dry.

You need someone to step in and make sure things continue to run smoothly, and that’s us.

Prior to starting remote DBA services, a full health check must be performed on the SQL Server instances to be monitored, for any SQL Server instances we have not previously looked at to ensure we’re working from a known-good starting point.

We agree how often you’d like us to check in with your system(s) – weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, quarterly – and then install our monitoring package that will alert you and us of anything untoward happening on you servers. If anything does happen, we’ll respond by the end of the next business day (and usually the same day).

Assuming all stays well, we’ll log in and perform our regular health checks and you get billed for the hours we work, with no exorbitant retainer fee. The initial cost is for any required health check, plus initial installation (usually 2 hours), and then ongoing costs are determined by the frequency of service – you pay for the regular checks, plus whatever hours we work responding to incidents, up to whatever budget you set.

Contact us today to discuss your requirements by email, phone, or online meeting – free and with no obligation.
