We take the production environment to our heart. Seriously! We strongly believe in being proactive then reactive. As part of our engagement, we will configure lightweight monitors that would give us a 360-degree view of the databases. This would allow our team based in the United States and in India to take any proactive measures to avoid an incident.

We take security extremely seriously. Our partners call us super-extra-cautious. We ensure that the access is controlled and granted to only those that are explicitly approved. We help with encrypting specific attributes or the entire dataset to ensure sensitive data is not compromised in any way. We go an extra-mile in helping manage server-level security as well.

Managing databases does not mean to only perform database backups and restores or schedule maintenance jobs. We take database management to the next level unlike others. From managing, to maintaining, to administering, to securing, to scaling, and other aspects of database management, we feel confident in saying that we go the whole nine yards with database management.
If you can’t measure, you can’t manage. We are a huge “Back to the future” fan and apply the same logic when working with any databases. We measure the capacity usage including the storage, memory, compute, connections, log, and more to ensure we are able to scale the production databases proactively and avoid any outage or business interruptions.

SQLOPS engineers will ensure that in the event of a disaster, your database is brought up and made accessible in as quickly as possible within SLAs defined.
