DBA outsourcing makes good business sense

Database management: can you afford to get it wrong?

Managing databases is expensive and challenging. They need careful, round-the-clock attention from highly paid technical staff. They are prone to breakdown from hardware, network or human failure, cyber-attacks and power outages. And DBAs are costly to hire, train and retain.

So why not outsource to us?

Hundreds of businesses turn to WellData to keep their databases running efficiently and problem-free. After all, we are the database people. We’ve lived and breathed database management for over 20 years. Here are seven good reasons for outsourcing to us:

Save money

DBAs can cost over £80k per annum in salary, NI and benefits. Fees for recruitment, holiday and sickness cover are on top. Three DBAs providing round-the-clock, 365-day service adds up to over £250k per year. Outsource to us for improved service at a fraction of the cost.

Rapid response

Our DBAs respond instantly to any emergency. Unlike your in-house staff, they don’t take cover-gaps due to holidays, parental leave or sickness. On standby 24/7/365, they specialise in fast problem resolution and keep your downtime to an absolute minimum.

Access expertise

Access WellData’s deep pool of technical knowhow whenever you need it. Our multi-skilled UK-based DBAs are trained in a broad range of database technologies and share decades of hands-on experience. Get their expert advice in an instant.

Better continuity

High churn of in-house DBA personnel leads to poor knowledge-transfer and continuity. By contrast our DBAs stay with us for many years, provide a continuous service and grow an indepth understanding of your systems and needs.

Focus on the important

Managing databases is time-intensive. Outsource your DBA function to us and free up valuable time to focus on the bigger picture. Leave the day-to-day management to us and concentrate on tackling more strategic IT issues.

Proactive not reactive

Unlike internal IT staff, we have more time to anticipate problems before they crop up. We think ahead and apply ‘fix-before-fail’ procedures to proactively test, monitor and reduce your breakdowns to a minimum.

Guaranteed SLAs

To reassure you we give you guaranteed SLAs that specify your own named DBA, access to a multiskilled support team, daily checks and updates. We guarantee response and resolution times. You get transparent all-inclusive pricing with no hidden extras. And, in case you are dissatisfied, you can cancel your contract at any time.
