COMPREHENSIVE solutions from highly skilled experts
Most companies rely on their database systems to run their critical business applications, but few can afford a team of experienced DBAs – instead they often rely on an “accidental DBA”, who looks after the database systems in addition to his or her day job.
Quorum can bridge the gap and provide a team of professional, experienced and certified database professionals on a part time basis to look after your company databases, ensuring your business applications are robust, fast performing, and deliver the management information which the business requires. We are happy working with, supporting and mentoring your existing in-house team or taking full responsibility for the database service – our approach is to work in partnership with our clients.
Implementation, Migration & Consolidation
As your IT environment evolves it is important to ensure that your database platform stays up to date and on supported and high performing hardware. Versions of SQL prior to 2008 are now not supported by Microsoft, and 2008 R2 will go end of life in July 2019.
We can help you with new SQL implementations, or to migrate your existing environment onto a supported platform.
This will start by evaluating your current workload and providing a recommended SQL architecture and migration strategy which maximises the database “bang for your buck” of your new environment, and ensure this is tuned to your application and unique business requirements.
Azure Cloud Database
The prohibitive cost of a traditional, manual approach to database management can be replaced by using Database as a Service (DBaaS) facilities including Azure SQL PaaS and CosmosDB.
These are cloud-based database solutions providing many benefits including rapid scalability for dynamic workloads, reduced management overheads and better value for money than traditional hosting.
Whether it’s building database clusters for resilience and availability, optimisation for high application performance, or creating geographically distributed systems, our DBAs have broad experience across all database technologies.
