There are three main reasons our clients site for using a Remote DBA service:

- High Quality - Junior Oracle Remote DBA's are the bane of corporate America. Oracle Corporation white papers suggest that more than 75% of all Oracle database outages are attributable to human error. By hiring the services of recognized Oracle experts, companies avoid the potential downtime.

- Low Cost - With Remote DBA services, you buy only those Remote DBA services that you require, and only at the levels you require the service. Full-time Oracle Remote DBAs commonly cost over $80,000/year and require more than $5,000 in training per year to keep them current with the technology. Many corporations with stable Oracle databases cannot justify the costs of a full time Remote DBA. According to Computerworld Magazine, "These days, an Oracle database administrator -- any database administrator -- is worth his weight in gold".

- High Availability - With Remote DBA support you can be assured that your database is being supported by a competent professional who is thoroughly familiar with your database. With a full-time Remote DBA, high attrition has become a major problem. Large personnel companies have noted that the average Oracle Remote DBA can be expected to leave their current positions every four years. The most common reasons cited for leaving are boredom and the failure of the company to

Automated Remote DBA Reports and alerts

BC Remote DBA Service uses a sophisticated set of proprietary scripts that will completely automate Oracle reporting, capacity planning and pre-outage alerts. By addressing the conditions that cause an outage before your database crashes, your databases will benefit from constant monitoring. Our monitor software falls into three areas:


Tuning Reports  

BC Remote DBA Service uses new Oracle monitoring techniques that are not available anywhere else to perform proactive tuning for the Oracle database. Our reports identify I/O problems at the object level and automatically perform caching operations. In addition, our Remote DBAs are alerted to potentially serious performance problems such as missing indexes.

Trend Reports  

The trend reports are used to establish the baseline signature for the database. From this signature, exception reports will identify abnormal conditions. Trend reports are created for all major areas of the Oracle database including I/O, memory usage, CPU consumption and Oracle internal metrics.

Exception Reports  

Our exception reports are e-mailed to the in-house manager daily. These reports show all times when the database is experiencing stress. Our reports go beyond ordinary Oracle monitoring and monitor the processing environment, reporting on CPU and RAM-related problems.

Capacity Planning Reports  

These reports provide the in-house manager all of the the summary information from the prior weeks activity. Weekly statistics reports show the total growth for the week and show all object activity within Oracle.


These reports trigger a page to the on-call Remote DBA for immediate resolution. The alerts warn the on-call Remote DBA whenever a pending problem may cripple the database.
