Once the audit is complete, we can tailor our DBA service to meet the needs for your environment, and start to address any specific areas that have been flagged as requiring immediate attention.

Business as Usual activity

Your business environment is not static and neither is your SQL Server.
As an ongoing overhead, we have the expectation of a level of business as usual activity as a basic requirement for every service we offer. You can scale our involvement depending on how much your environment is changing.

Out of Hours activity

Every platform needs maintenance and patching. It’s a fact of life. You expect it, we expect it… but your customers don’t really care too much about that sort of thing. We have built into our service an expectation for regular out of hours work to take care of these activities.
Additional Out of Hours incidents can be added to your subscription at any time


Our normal business hours are 9AM – 6PM (UTC) Monday to Friday.
YOUR normal business hours will become OUR core hours.
Any work that is scheduled outside of core hours will be performed as an Out of Hours incident/activity.


Below is the pricing for each of the Service levels on a monthly subscription or annual contract basis. Final pricing may vary based on the size of your estate and any additional requirements you have, or specific issues you need assistance to resolve. We provide full quotations for all our services.
