Remote DBA services (remote database administration), and remote (SQL, DB2, Sybase & Oracle) DBA outsourcing services have become an attractive option for most small and medium size companies. Oracle Corporation white papers suggest that more than 75% of all Oracle database outages are attributable to human errors. By hiring the services of recognized Oracle DBA experts and other database support staff, companies can avoid the potential downtime associated with human error. With remote DBA support you can be assured that your database is being supported by a competent professional who is thoroughly familiar with your database. With a full-time DBA, high attrition has also become a major problem. With remote DBA services, you buy only those DBA services that you require, and only at the levels you require the service. Full-time in-house Oracle DBAs commonly cost over $80,000/year and require more than $5,000 in training every year to keep them current with the technology. Many corporations with stable Oracle databases cannot justify the costs of a full time DBA. More importantly you do not need to wait for weeks while a new DBA becomes familiar with your databases or gets more training for a new version of Oracle, SQL Server, DB2 UDB, or Sybase. With Remote Oracle DBA support and SQL support, you can be rest assured that your databases are getting the best possible attention. This allows IT managers to focus on other important issues and maximize their productivity.
