Database Administration Services – Platinum Package

Database Administration Services – Platinum

Today’s Information Systems are under a constant barrage of security threats and attacks. Everything from Secure Socket Layer (SSL) bugs to buffer overflow exposures to Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks. All of these potential security exposures must be assessed and addressed.

Regular operating systems updates, security patches and upgrades are a fact of life for systems and database administrators. Often times, patches and updates require a reboot of the OS, signaling downtime for the database and applications. Best Practice for production environments dictates that patches and upgrades are tested and that there is a rollback plan in place – just in case.

These discordant directives to provide the most secure, up-to-date systems, database and applications environment while maintaining a 24/7 Highly Available infrastructure are as challenging as they are contradictory.

Maximum Availability Architectures can address these disparate objectives. But, careful planning, enterprise-level systems integration coupled with Virtual Machine (VM), database failover / failback and other techniques are required to flexibly achieve planned system updates and upgrades while maintaining rigorous uptime requirements. We call it Rigorous Resiliency℠.
