New Service Enables Midmarket Clients Database Expertise at a Fraction of the Cost

SWC Technology Partners, a Chicago area provider of full-service IT solutions to midmarket organizations, announces its new Virtual Database Administrator offering. SWC’s unique Managed Services Virtual DBA (VDBA) solution provides comprehensive services focused on optimizing SQL environments. The service compliments today’s midmarket internal IT team by providing SQL expertise to help improve the performance, health and reliability of SQL servers and databases. These services include daily, weekly, and monthly tasks, as well as ad hoc support and strategic guidance.

“Our Virtual DBA service has enabled our clients to better meet their organizational goals,” said Rachael Narel, Engagement Manager at SWC. “By taking care of the day to day monitoring and maintenance of their SQL Server environment, we free up key resources to work on more strategic projects for the company. Additionally, since we gather diagnostics on a daily basis we are able to make continual improvements and recommendations to enhance performance and prepare for future needs or expansion. Many companies don’t require a full-time dedicated SQL DBA. That’s why SWC’s VDBA offering is so attractive – our clients benefit from 24X7 coverage and all of the expertise for a fraction of the cost of a full-time DBA.”

Key features of SWC’s VDBA’s service include Microsoft SQL Server Assessments to ensure a company’s environments are optimally performing. These assessments help companies gain insight and provide recommendations on how to resolve SQL Server performance issues, improve reliability, cut costs and consolidate databases. An assessment includes the evaluation of SQL and Windows Servers, maintenance plans, back-ups, configuration, and assesses overall SQL health. SWC’s team of dedicated technical experts create plans, schedules, and evaluates adherence to best practice and any required remediation. SWC then provide a roadmap to ensure that the environment is well-maintained and meets the needs of each client’s business going forward.
