Assessments

Anyone can come into your environment, run a utility (which they may or may not have even written), and spit out a canned report that is the same for every customer. That report will have generic recommendations that may not even apply to your environment, or worse, have old and outdated best practices that are no longer valid. This is not the SQLHA approach. An assessment should first understand the customer’s requirements and goals, as well as identify their strengths and weaknesses. Part of that is taking into account aspects such as how you configure your servers, deployment methods, current and upcoming projects, and supportability. Using our years of expertise and methodologies, we pull and analyze the right data to build a customized report which gives you clear, actionable items where you will see the most improvement, but at the same time, helping you focus your IT budgets where they need to go.

We can do a very targeted assessment that looks at a particular aspect of your environment. These assessments often cover topics including:

  • Performance
  • Availability
  • Hardware configuration
  • Windows configuration
  • Hypervisor configuration
  • Storage configuration
  • Networking
  • Security
  • And more …

Many of our customers prefer we do a comprehensive assessment that takes into account nearly everything listed above.

Whether you are having issues that need immediate attention and analysis, or just looking to see how you can improve your current environment, SQLHA’s assessments give you the roadmap to get you from where you are to where you need to be.

System Monitoring

Nobody wants to be woken up in the middle of the night for a production issue. Most production issues can be avoided by having the right proactive monitoring and alerts in place to let you predict and fix a problem before it becomes a crisis involving downtime. With so many layers to look at and just as many options for tools, let the experts at SQLHA help you choose the right mix of counters, utilities, and alerts to implement in your environment. This data will also give you baselines and benchmarks to allow you to allocate budget where it needs to be spent, reducing your costs, increasing return on your investments, and letting you sleep at night.
