Outsourcing your Microsoft SQL Server support to dsp means working with an award-winning team, here 24/7 to help you…

By partnering with dsp for Microsoft SQL Server Support, whether the database is in Azure, on-premise or located at a dedicated datacenter, our clients can gain a competitive advantage without the costs of operating a fully functioning 24×7 DBA team or cross training existing consultants. Many organisations use our service to supplement an existing SQL Server DBA team, acting as an elastic resource during times of peak demand.

Our Microsoft SQL Server support service involves extensive proactive monitoring to keep your database optimised. All of this work is performed by Microsoft Certified Engineers who are regularly trained, constantly keeping up to date with shifts in technology and functionality. We’re not just Microsoft specialists, we are trusted Microsoft experts.


Elastic SQL Server Support: Key Features

Whilst organisations may use similar technologies, their support requirements will always differ. We understand this. At the heart of our SQL Server support service is our DBA-developed monitoring suite which allows us to be lightening fast in our reactions to potential issues; however, the design of your service, the SLA and the ability to use us in either ‘Fixed-Price’ or ‘Variable’ mode all comes down to tailoring, something that is simply part of the service. Typical elements of a SQL Server Managed Service would include:

  • Site Review and On-Boarding Service
  • 24 x 7 x 365 Performance Monitoring & Alerting
  • Weekly, Monthly or Quarterly Health Checks
  • Pro-active Database Performance Tuning
  • Hotline Support Service
  • Management Information Reporting
  • Continuous Maintenance and Automated Patching
  • Backup, DR, Hosting, Azure-enablement & Security auditing.

 

Why consider Outsourced SQL Server Support?

  • Immediate return on investment – outsourcing core DBA services typically reduces operational costs by 40% (up to 70% if your production system is required 24×7).

Why Encryption is Key in the Event of a Data Breach
