Leave the Databases to Us.

 

Are you asking too much?

Predictability
Performance
Scalability
Affordability 

We don’t think so.

But complicated licensing schemes, distant software vendors, and hackers are battling against you every step of the way.

Let’s make it a fair fight.

Together, we can make things work. You leave the databases to us, which leaves the business to you. Isn’t that how it should work?

SQL Server Remote DBA: FlexDBA

We prevent problems, fix them if they happen, & mentor your staff.
With the cloud as the cornerstone of our business, it was critical that Aluvii would pick a company that could support us 24/7. We needed the expertise that a SQL Server MVP could provide, but on an ad hoc basis. Aluvii identified that Straight Path Solutions possessed all the necessary skills, professional knowledge, and ability to scale quickly when needed with their FlexDBA™ service. Their team now works seamlessly with Aluvii’s contractors and staff to provide only the most top level support necessary for Aluvii to operate as an industry leading SaaS Leisure provider. This high level performance ensures that we maintain the highest standards for our current customers and ease the minds of our future customers about the integrity of their data and systems.

When we had come to Straight Path our databases were showing the wear and burden of an unfocused and costly remote DBA firm. We needed to quickly improve performance and stability in order to maintain customer satisfaction on the product side, and we had a backlog of technical debt that seemed only to grow deeper. Since engaging with Straight Path we have improved our reliability and performance for the customer-facing aspects of our databases, from day-to-day fires, improving methods for growth and scale-out, consolidation, and efficiency, to unglamorous but important items such as replication, improved monitoring/alerting, and backups. I especially appreciate the team’s quick responses to emergencies, as well as the forthright and focused involvement during projects and planning. I would recommend Straight Path to anyone who requires a thoughtful, personal approach to their database needs. Understanding the data structures and engines is obviously important, but the ability to also understand these items in the context of the business and the teams who rely on them is what differentiates this service from others.

It’s The Data, Stupid

No Offense I mean no offense by the title. The title goes back to American election politics. Someone somewhere (James Carville said this in 1991 about the focus of the campaign he managed for Bill Clinton.. Forgot that, but I found it in about 8 seconds because of...
