Database Administration and Support Service from Ascent Technology

19 May 2023
Economic volatility is driving a greater number of organisations to consider cost cutting measures and to implement consolidation procedures. This situation is further compounded by the growing skills shortage that makes it more difficult for businesses to acquire and retain people with the right levels of skills and experience. One way of mitigating these business challenges is for organisations to consider and adopt a Co/Outsourcing strategy.

Ascent Technology’s proven database services model enables organisations to Co/Outsource the daily management, maintenance and support of their database environments on a 24/7 basis.

The active management and preventative maintenance ensures optimal performance, and can include application specific tasks and/or database batch jobs.

Proposed on a fixed monthly cost, this service is implemented on a remote and on-site basis to ensure a reliable, robust and optimally performing database environment.

Ascent Technology fosters a heterogeneous database technology strategy. Our specialised database skills enable us to service and support complex mixed technology environments – including Microsoft Azure SQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle Database, MySQL, MariaDB, MongoDB, Azure Cosmos DB, PostgreSQL, EnterpriseDB and Amazon RDS.
