There is no question that your DBA’s have a tough job, and as databases become more complex – it’s only getting tougher.
Database hiccups don’t confine themselves to normal 9-5 working hours. One of the biggest challenges DBAs face today is the fact that while they can’t operate effectively 24/7, your databases need to.
This leads to a common scenario: After a long day at work, your DBA returns home to relax and spend some time with family. Then… just when your DBA finally settles in to enjoy a some z’s… the phone rings. There is a problem and your DBA has to get out of bed in the middle of the night to solve it because no one else can. So yes, they are a valued resource but no, they are probably not enjoying their job.
Even when your DBA is able to enjoy uninterrupted sleep, the job can be a stressful one.
Although your DBA has long-term strategic projects and goals, it can be difficult to find time to work on them. In the day-to-day life of a DBA, most of their time is spent solving problems as they occur – leaving little time to optimize systems, improve performance or focus on data security.
So it comes as no surprise that DBA burnout is a major problem for IT departments, leading to a high turnover rate. And, since good DBAs are in high demand and are hard to replace – losing a DBA is costly.
Services such as a remote DBA, DBA on-demand, and database consulting do not replace your current DBA, but rather remove some of the burdens that DBAs commonly experience.
Take the scenario of the sleep-deprived DBA who receives an urgent call in the middle of the night. When a company utilizes a remote DBA, the in-house DBA can sleep soundly while the remote DBA services take care of the emergency. Remote DBA and on-demand services can fill in the gaps in your IT department, take over routine tasks, and free up your in-house DBA to focus on mission-critical initiatives.
