Oracle Database and Microsoft SQL Server have provided the backbone of our client’s application infrastructure for decades. These relational database systems can be rock-solid for many years if properly managed. Unfortunately, many Oracle and Microsoft SQL databases are built and managed with the “Set it and forget it” or “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” methodologies. Database Performance Management is a proactive approach to Oracle Database and Microsoft SQL Server operational success
In reality, waiting for an issue to be called out be database monitoring tools or service interruption can cause significant loss of revenue or even risk to a company’s existence. By shifting the focus from database administration and reactive alerting to proactive database performance management, potential issues can be identified far in advance. This predictive and prescriptive approach to database performance management allows companies to avoid the challenges posed by rapid growth, emergent database security flaws and other common database-related business challenges.
Several of our clients have come to us after periods of rapid growth. Frequently, databases that were built to support an application function beautifully until the same application (and its database) are asked to scale 100 – 10,000% in a short period of time.
Database performance management allows a consistent view of database performance over time which provides advanced visibility to scaling challenges. This proactive alerting enables our clients to plan and execute changes to applications, databases and architectures before the current systems are overwhelmed.
At Performance Tuning Corporation, we have helped our clients proactively manage their critical Oracle and Microsoft SQL databases for more than 20 years. Through a combination of tools and processes, we are able to provide trending of performance metrics which have the ability to disrupt our clients’ business. This database advanced warning system allows our customers to plan database maintenance, database upgrades and database security activities well in advance which reduces their cost of Oracle and Microsoft SQL database operations.
