How It Works
All packages utilise our comprehensive suite of scripts.  These run unobtrusively and provide our DBAs with information detailing critical and non-critical issues.  Many clients already have secure remote access, but where they don't we can use amongst the highest encryption software in the industry (e.g. Checkpoint's Firewall-1 with SSH & VPN).
What We Do
It is primarily the response times you require and the amount of work your database environment needs, which determines the overall package type and cost. All packages include the following components:
Initial Healthcheck and Recommendation Report
Proven backup & recovery procedures
Guaranteed response times (SLA)
Regular Management reports
A named dedicated Senior DBA, with Xcedes DBA Team backup
Fixed price twelve month package
We are always on hand to help with any other issues you may have (such as server configuration, upgrades, new developments, training etc.). We are committed to keeping your databases running at optimal performance 100 percent of the time.
Xcedes Has It Covered Whatever your database requirements, whatever the platform, whether you have one or many databases that you wish were off your hands, we offer a quality, cheaper alternative to having your own DBAs.
Consultancy and DBA hours can be built into any package to bring your
database environment up to best practice (where possible).  We can look
after a subset of your databases, if you wish.
