The proactive management of DBA.nl guarantees a stable, fast and secure database environment. Many organizations have insufficient knowledge to manage a database environment. As a result, regular maintenance and management is often not performed. DBA.nl does have this knowledge in house!Years of experience have resulted in DBA.nl developing a detailed method for database management. Through thorough database management, which includes periodic maintenance and the use of monitoring, DBA.nl ensures a reliable, safe and fast database environment. Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server and Postgresql environments therefore hold no secrets for the database administrators of DBA.nl.
Prevention is better than cure. Good and proactive database management leads to fewer disruptions in the database. Database management gives you a higher uptime, secondly, a stable database server and thirdly, fewer security incidents.
A stable environment is therefore easy to realize by having it managed by the experts at DBA.nl. Our database administrators periodically, usually monthly, perform maintenance on your environment. They follow up signals from monitoring, apply patches and perform contingency and restore tests. On request, DBA.nl also carries out service requests. Naturally, our administrators also monitor incidents. This keeps your databases functioning properly and stably.
The 24/7 monitoring and proactive management services are extremely reliable!

An important component of database management is performing periodic maintenance. During this maintenance, the consultant checks the database on a large number of points. Examples include checks on available disk space, error messages, daily backup checks and various performance indicators. Conducting trend analyzes on recurring reports and/or findings is also part of this. You will receive monthly reports on the state of your environment.
DBA.nl recommends Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) for monitoring Oracle environments. Based on our many years of experience, we have developed our own OEM configuration set. Our consultants have developed their own monitoring solution for Microsoft SQL Server. This monitoring has also proven itself for years with our customers. In short, both solutions are the result of years of experience in managing database environments. We do this at provinces, municipalities and various commercial companies.
DBA.nl carries out backup checks on a daily basis. So you can be sure that these have been made. In the unlikely event that this is not the case, action can be taken. You can submit requests via the Service Desk to create databases, refresh the test environment, etc. In addition to the daily backup checks, DBA.nl can, in consultation, perform an annual fall-back and restore test. This test is performed to check whether the environments can be quickly and completely restored and diverted.
When you choose DBA.nl as your database administrator partner, you choose a reliable and involved party. Agreements are made with the service manager about, for example, accessibility and specific work arrangements. These agreements are recorded in a service level agreement (SLA) and a Document Agreements and Procedures (DAP). Our service manager is also the point of contact for evaluations, escalations and complaint handling.
