SQL Server Offerings
SQL Server Database Backup
We have SQL Server database backup and recovery down to a fine art. Our customers appreciate our expertise and proactive manner, and we in return seek to uphold our customer-first values.
SQL Server Disaster Recovery
Cloud-enabled SQL Server DR is more economical than traditional methods: there is no lead-time or capital outlay; no need for businesses to buy additional hardware, or to have dedicated personnel.
SQL Server Migration
Since Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud's partnership announcement, moving your databases to Cloud has never been easier. Improve the performance, security, scalability, of your SQL Server platform.
SQL Server Upgrade
Upgrading your SQL Server databases does more than improving your security stature. Not upgrading regularly could lead you to miss out on enhanced features, suffer poor application performance, and pay more in support.
SQL Server Security
DSP-Explorer's preventative security services include but are not limited to: Security Assessments, including SQL Server Health Checks; around-the-clock Auditing and Monitoring; Data Protection and Data Access Control.
SQL Server Integration
Properly managed database processes can make the difference between a challenging user experience and an efficiently run estate, and a database integration could revolutionise the way you use your data.
Legacy Application Modernisation and Support
Many companies are running applications that were fit for purpose 20 years ago, but are now unable to meet business needs. These applications can over-complicate your estate and drive up costs.
Serverless Computing allows for fully managed code execution by a Cloud partner; this reduces the administrative tasks of developers and allows them to focus on the innovation that drives their business.
SQL Managed Instance
Migrate your databases to Azure to experience the rich SQL Server programming surface area in the cloud, as well as the operational and financial benefits of the intelligent, fully-managed Azure SQL Database.
