The remote administration of the database involves performing all the daily functions that house administrators will generally perform. The difference is that the remote database administrator (DBA) to connect to the system remotely through a secure Internet connection or a dedicated dial-up line is connected to the network.
A company may want to use a remote DBA service instead of hiring internal staff for external services, it does not have the same costs associated with hiring someone directly. There are several reasons beyond the simple cost that often cause companies to use a remote database specialist.
Reliability and availability
Many Database Administration and Support Service are not always linked to the clock and the limitations of internal staff alike. Some services offer 24-hour monitoring and support so that the database is almost always available to customers and employees. This availability is directly related to the reliability of the system.
The reliable system allows companies to focus on profitability rather than infrastructure and information technology (IT) strategy. Customers can access the database or customers can benefit from the reliability of off-site administration because the service will not experience frequent or unexpected downtime during hours when there is no office.
Security and recovery
Part of this service generally involves daily or weekly backups of the information in the database. The database for local storage units in a customer's office can be duplicated or the information can be transmitted and stored in a redundant secure line drive in the cloud or an off-site hosting location.
Frequent backups are still required, but the DBA manages them remotely. By using DBA remote recovery, the entire database can be restored very quickly so that the amount of data loss is minimized.
