Have Problems With A Slow Database?

Performance Tuning Can Fix Your Data Performance Issues!

Well tuned SQL databases can support any workload. When you find your Oracle or Microsoft database performing more slowly than expected, you are likely to find that a small piece of code or something as simple as the cabling of your hardware is the culprit. Performance Tuning Corporation assesses SQL databases every day, and we can help you understand where your challenges are so that you can move forward with a faster performing business.

Our systems assessments are thorough and holistic. We help you understand your database, application operating system and hardware as a single environment. We then pinpoint where current or potential performance issues exist. Finally, Performance Tuning’s experienced Database experts document and deliver a remediation plan to ensure that you continue to receive the greatest benefit from your investment in data infrastructure.

We Provide:

  • Architecture Assessments

    PTC’s holistic approach to database system analysis includes evaluating the configuration of your servers, storage and SAN, network and database design. A thorough assessment includes many components and their associated interdependencies.

  • Capacity Planning and System Sizing

    PTC can assist you in sizing your systems correctly and plan for future growth. We will analyze your system and workloads, and provide recommendations for future growth and capacity.

  • System Health Checks

    This service may include on-site or remote analysis of your database system(s) in both stand alone and clustered environments. PTC will perform an analysis of your Oracle or SQL server system, alert you of potential problems, and provide recommendations for improving system design and performance.

  • Storage Consolidation Planning

    We can analyze your servers and storage to determine what hardware and applications might be candidates for consolidation.

What Our Clients Say

“Performance Tuning was able to quickly troubleshoot and resolve many technical issues that often eluded other consulting companies we’ve worked with. I was most impressed by their quick response in emergency situations. They’ ve been instrumental in the delivery of Oracle technologies such as Oracle RAC, Grid Control and Data Guard.”

James Jech, Dell

“Performance Tuning was able to offer unique insights to database design and performance tuning optimization on a world class level. They did a superb job of load testing, which was cited by Microsoft (a team member) as, the best we’ve seen in three years and 50 customers to come through our SQL Server Performance Tuning Lab. This statement came from the SQL Server Product Group in Redmond – a tough crowd to please. In addition, they accelerated several products including our flagship Thomson ONE Analytics and were a key part of a project whose success has lead to case studies by Intel, Microsoft, and Unisys.”

Jeremy Lehman, Thomson

“The Instructor was able to customize the course slightly to meet the needs and levels of experience in the class. It was great to get some real hands on to cement in what was reviewed and explained.”

Chad Aberle, Microsoft

“We recently had a problem with SQL Server performance after introducing virtualization and a SAN in our server environment. After working with two different consulting companies without success, we contacted Performance Tuning Corporation. PTC rapidly set up a remote engagement with us, and within one week was able to identify a problem with a virtual device driver. We are very satisfied with the work PFC performed, and feel it is some of the best consulting money that we have spent in several years.”

Howard Brill, PHD, Monroe Plan

PTC has been phenomenal. It’s a scary time when your most critical data is being moved while users are in the system working. Especially on the heals of our previous vendor’s failed attempt. I can only describe it as a calming effect when true professionals are running the show.

IT Healthcare Manager, Opelousas General Health System

“We are very pleased with the work that PTC performed. They were able to extract information from SQL Server and use that information to identify the exact causes of our performance bottlenecks. They provided us with information, tools, and instructions on how we can locate the cause of our performance problems. The final report contained good information and gives us a benchmark for doing future performance reviews.”

Jon Robertson, MedEvolve

“This is a well balanced course (Optimizing Oracle RAC on Linux) covering all major topics from System Administration to Database Administration unlike most of the courses”
