SQL Server

Why hire remotely?

In many cases, you may not need a full-time DBA, or perhaps you need a DBA to augment your existing in-house expertise. We can scale up and scale back hours as needed. Only pay for the time and services you need?

How flexible?

We can work with you to develop a schedule that fits your needs. Perhaps it’s just checking in once a month to check your systems, or it’s a project to develop an ETL for your needs, or something else. We have the expertise and can help.

What about on-site needs?

We recognize that some projects need a DBA on-site for part or all of a project. We also find that often during the initial stages, being on-site with your existing team can accelerate a project. We can work with you on travel arrangements. We have even had clients were we’ve made being on- site on a bi-monthly basis part of our contract.

What can you do?

We can help with:

  • Database Upgrades and Installations
  • Disaster Recovery, both before and after the fact
  • Finding Performance bottlenecks
  • Replication
  • And other aspects of running your SQL Server installation

Help, my server crashed, I need help now!

Obviously we can’t guarantee our availability right this minute or that we can even solve your problem, but if you reach out to us and we’re available we’ll work with you to determine if we can help and what the rate may be. If we can’t help, we will try to point you to other consultants that may be able to help.

Help, I need to upgrade my SQL Server!

Great, we’ve done multiple in-place upgrades and we can work with your team to get yours upgraded to the most current and secure version of SQL Server.

Our DBA is leaving, can you help?

Of course. We can help backfill your empty DBA position until you can hire someone locally. Of course we think we’re good enough you may decide you don’t need to hire a full-time DBA and can stick with us. In either case though, we will work with you to help you get what you need.

With over 15 years of experience working with SQL Server, GMS can help answer those questions and more. I have installed and maintained SQL Server in businesses that need a single SQL Server to fully replicated systems with log-shipping.
