What is Database Administration as a Service (DBAaaS)
Database Administration as a Service (DBAaaS) is a remote database administration and support service, which provides customers access to expert DBA’s who will manage their databases. DBAaaS is delivered as a managed service, meaning our experts will take the responsibility of looking after your databases 24×7 ensuring optimum working state, improved database availability, performance and scalability. With our proactive monitoring, potential database issues are identified and addressed before they can turn into business disrupting problems.
