Database server software consist of numerous components and configuration options. Some of these configuration choices are not reversible and may have significant implications on the way your database performs.

In recognizing and understanding the critical installation decisions, we can help you plan the installation, determine the appropriate system resources required for optimal performance, follow recommended best practices, and efficiently configure the software.

Techsun data migration services offer clients the comfort of using our highly skilled staff to perform some of the most sensitive of tasks. We work with the client’s staff to migrate existing applications or data from one database to another.

Performance Audits & Tuning
Techsun Computers performance enhancement services focus on maximizing the efficiency of your existing hardware and software resources. Our skilled consultants perform a detailed review of your database systems and the applications that run against them. We evaluate your storage infrastructure, database structures, application utilization patterns, memory sizing and consumption, and carefully examine your use of database indicies and the appropriateness of your index types.
Once we’ve carried out a full analysis, we work with your system administrators, DBA’s, and developers to come to a cost effective and expedient performance enhancing solution.
Disaster Readiness Audits
With a background of performing numerous such database recoveries, we have developed a critical eye for weaknesses and/or missing links in the typical back-up and recovery approaches. We apply this perspective towards analysing your configurations, assumptions, and plans. Once our analysis is complete, we deliver a written statement of findings and thoughtful recommendation for addressing each client’s unique needs.
Back-up & Recovery
The Back-up and Recovery Service entails one or more Techsun consultants working either onsite or remotely to implement an enterprise quality procedure for ensuring that, in the event of a catastrophe, your data can be quickly, safely, and fully recovered. Techsun Computers first reviews exactly how the database is being used by existing applications and how it might be used by future applications. Analysis of existing IT resources and backup strategies is undertaken next. Once all relevant information has been collected, Techsun Computers will design and implement a custom-tailored, multi-tiered Backup and Recovery strategy. Finally, before calling the job complete, we perform rigorous failure and recovery testing, ensuring that all implemented recovery processes in fact hold up under actual failure scenarios. It is suggested that the customer contract with Techsun Computers on a semi-annual basis so that the backup solution can be reviewed and tested for continued efficacy.
