With our Remote DBA service, our experienced PostgreSQL experts take care of the ongoing operations and administration of your PostgreSQL databases.
For many businesses it is much more cost efficient to use our Remote DBA service compared to hiring a full-time employee to work as a database administrator.
While we will agree on the scope and details of the service, below are examples of what our Remote DBA service will typically include.
A budding online retailer, was faced with an escalating challenge. Their PostgreSQL databases were growing exponentially due to an increase in online traffic and data accumulation. This led to stability problems and performance slowdowns and potential risk of lost business. Their small IT team was not equipped to manage the large databases effectively. They were hesitant to hire a full-time database administrator due to cost implications and the time it would take to onboard and train a new employee.
They discovered our PostgreSQL Remote DBA service and decided to try it out. As we got to work, we started with understanding their existing system and began tuning the PostgreSQL server configuration to enhance its performance and gain the immediate value of low hanging fruits.
Our experts then set up an efficient monitoring system to identify any slowdowns and potential problems in real time. We quickly identified the top handful most performance impacting SQL queries and proposed optimizations that caused between 8-30x speedups in execution time of those queries.
Our team also designed a robust and improved backup strategy to safeguard the company’s data, reducing the risk of data loss in case of a server crash.
By regularly monitoring and analyzing their PostgreSQL server logs, we were able to pre-empt potential issues and keep their databases running smoothly. Our scheduled maintenance and housekeeping routines, such as vacuum analysis, reindexing and various cleanups, further improved their database performance.
We also efficiently managed their indexes, views, triggers, users, and permissions. This allowed the company’s IT team to focus on their core tasks without worrying about the day-to-day database operations.
The impact was tangible. The company experienced significantly improved database performance, reduced downtime, and enhanced data security. They were able to focus on growing their business while we took care of their PostgreSQL databases.
Their cost of operations was reduced, as our Remote DBA service was a much more cost-effective solution than hiring a full-time employee. They felt secure knowing that their databases were in the hands of experts.
This is just one example of how our Remote DBA service can help a business flourish. We are dedicated to ensuring that our clients’ PostgreSQL databases run smoothly and efficiently, allowing them to focus on what they do best: growing their business.
