Database Consultancy Services

Enterprise Databases


Google Cloud allows both Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle Database to run on the underlying architecture, meaning you can run either technology confidently on the technical platform.

Microsoft SQL Server can be run via optimised VM images on GCP Compute Engine (IaaS).

Oracle is restricted through its licensing policies. However, it can still be deployed through the following means:

  • Via optimised VM images on Compute Engine where an Enterprise Agreement (EA) or Unlimited Licence Agreement (ULA) is in place
  • Via bare metal instance “close to” the Google Cloud Platform (within 1 millisecond latency)

DSP-Explorer's commercial team can talk you through these options to ensure you remain licence compliant throughout any migration and subsequent deployment.

Open Source Databases


Google is a big proponent of Open Source software and this includes databases, both relational and No SQL.

Relational databases such as MySQL (and variants) and PostgreSQL can be deployed the following ways:

  • Via optimised VM images on Compute Engine (IaaS)
  • Managed instance through Cloud SQL (PaaS)

NO SQL databases may also be run:

  • Via optimised VM images on Compute Engine (IaaS)
  • Managed instance as Cloud Big Table (PaaS)

Google Native Databases

As well as comprehensive IaaS support for Enterprise vendors and Open Source platforms, GCP provides its own native (Relational and NO SQL) fully managed database platforms:

Cloud SQL (RDBMS)

  • SQL Server, MySQL and PostgreSQL variants

Cloud Spanner (RDBMS)

  • Unlimited scale
  • Strong consistency
  • Up to 99.999 availability

Data Platform Modernisation

There are many reasons to consider Data Platform Modernisation, the most prevalent one being that your current platform is no longer fit for purpose. The four main causes are that your estate may be:

  • No longer cost effective
  • No longer supported
  • Unable to scale / perform
  • In needs of re-alignment to suit changing business needs

DSP-Explorer has over 20 years' experience in migrating customers from ageing infrastructure to modern platforms, be that data centre consolidations via virtualisation, hybrid cloud interoperability or full cloud migrations.

The Google Cloud Platform (GCP) architecture is designed to achieve the flexibility and ease of use needed to drive complex IT requirements. It also boasts business analytical capabilities, hand in hand with the expected cost reduction and security-first designs expected of a modern enterprise platform. By leveraging Kubernetes and containers such as Docker, you can migrate your troublesome legacy applications into a cloud environment as part of your data platform modernisation program.

As well as the expected cost savings and performance enhancements, GCP will also provide best-in-class analytics services to collate, process and stream the multitude of available data sources to give near real-time decision support to the business and your collaborators throughout your value chain.
