New White Paper Reports DBA Outsourcing Exceeds Scripts and Tools

Remote database service pairs people and process, creating a combination neither script solutions or market tools can touch. Proactive monitoring prevents problems before they arise. Versed in Oracle database administration, fills partner role.

Online PR News – 26-October-2009 – – SAN FRANCISCO -- In the most current white paper Database Specialists, a senior consultant for the leading remote database service explores database monitoring methodologies and philosophies.

Recognizing the appeal of commercial monitoring tools, the report reveals that these tools disappoint many DBAs looking for a broader scope of assistance. The cost of these tools must also be considered. Comparing proactive tools to DBA outsourcing, the white paper recommends with verified data and without reservation.

"Script-based solutions may present a straightforward attraction, but building bit by bit too often cobbles together and becomes difficult to maintain, as pieces are poorly documented. Bear in mind, Oracle out-of-the-box browser based tools only tread so far. Though enticing, who looks at notification emails? Who acts on these alerts and communicates status to other staff?" said David Wolff, CEO of Database Specialists.

An industry leader in Oracle database administration, the Database Specialists whitepaper aims to solves such riddles.

"We are a whole lot more robust than any off-the-shelf database monitoring tool. If you do not have the staff to carry out proactive procedures, then the best tools on the market will not help you. We collaborate with your internal staff to seal a partner role. We aim to complement your business," explained Wolff.

Wolff likes to think of his DBA outsourcing more as resourcing, considering how shifts from performance consulting to providing general Oracle resources to lending complete Oracle database production support or any gear in between. In addition to their monitoring tool, reporting portal and time-tested procedures, Database Specialists sends daily email reminders relaying current health and relevant advice.

One client writes, “I find the support from Database Specialists to be outstanding. I have worked with some other outsourced DBAs in the past, and they blow everyone else away.”

Whether an Oracle database administrator or a performance-tuning resource to an in-house DBA, reaps praise. This remote database service asks questions, takes answers seriously and allocates time for individual attention.
