SQL Services, Server Hosting and Performance Tuning

SQL Services and Hosting



There are also different SQL services offered by SQL server analysts professionals and one of the most popular of them all is the SQL server hosting or SQL hosting. This type of service as a major tips should be that which should be reliable and by reliable means that there is no down time 24/7 as much as possible. SQL hosting should also come with security and stability aside from performance which may be attributed to reliability.

Remote DBA Services - Remote DBA Services are a type of SQL service where your business can rely on in terms of database administration consulting and remote DBA Microsoft certified professionals called as DBA experts.

Remote DBA Experts - They are people behind the professional services related to remote DBA management. A major requirement however for these remote DBA experts is that they have to be either Microsoft Certified Database Administrators (MCDBAs) or Microsoft Certified Information Technology Professionals (MCITPs) or Microsoft Certified Technology Specialists (MCTS). Without these certifications, a doubt is in the air for rendering the kind of service although there are a few rare good ones without these certifiables.

SQL Server Performance and SQL Performance Tuning



SQL server performance
is very important to be always on its peak in terms of service because if not, you cannot expect otherwise to maximize your business profit. This can be had if you have the best SQL performance tuning tool to serve your needs when the time comes. This is very critical to your business success therefore should be treated with utmost importance. You can achieve this by using SQL performance server tool such as the SQL Ultimate Performance Monitor.

SQL server performance should also be handled by professionals in the business to ensure a perfect outcome on your SQL server tuning because this is a very sensitive matter on SQL tuning services.

Database Backup



Database backup is a very important consideration when we are talking about SQL server. The SQL server backup will become your reserve force just in case that something goes wrong anywhere it is not supposed to. This prompts every business to make a reserve of all the data that is stored in the server in the form of SQL backup so that in any case where something goes wrong, you won't have to worry about data loss. This can cost you your hard earned weeks profit and maybe even more if this happens and no one I believe would like it. So the turning point is to make sure that there is a back up everyday of all the data in your server as this can be used against server disasters which we all know are part of the possibilities.

SQL consultant



In matters hiring, be careful if you are to take an SQL consultant since you already know that data is at stake and I'm pretty sure that you don't want to risk loosing your precious data by hiring an underrated SQL consultant just in case the need arises.

Don't forget to take security into consideration when coding in SQL and creating databases. SQL Injection attacks are a big risk now, and at the very least you should be protecting against these attacks by validating input and parameterizing input statements. There's a good video on that here - http://www.microsoft.com/hellosecureworld7

I think you mean an "overrated" consultant. One who is "underrated" would perform better than expected, which would be a good thing.

Yes, I believe you may be right about this, Lance but only at some point. By underrated I mean that the basic qualifications are not met.

There are a few but I'd rather not take the risk for my business if I were to choose.
