Database Management Services

"We consider our GSI resources an extension of our core team – I can’t imagine having the continuity of service and peace of mind that it provides without having GSI there for both services.”
Mark Stone - Vice President, Information Systems - Eastern Propane & Oil

“For a smaller company stepping up to a fully-integrated Tier I ERP system and all of the complex components required to support it, having a single partner that provides 24/7 support for our database as well as our CNC has been invaluable."

Is your data safe?

Does your company know the answer to this question: Is my data safe, now and in the future? With GSI as your database partner, the answer to that question is yes – 24/7/365.

Company data is key

A company's database is the most critical component of the business. If a business's data is inaccessible - even temporarily - it can result in tens of thousands of dollars in lost wages and revenue. A company could go out of business completely if a database crash results in unrecoverable loss of data.

Databases are complex

Many growing companies that implement databases to support advanced software are often unprepared for the complexities of managing an enterprise-class database. The cost of hiring a qualified database administrator can be prohibitive especially for companies with a small technology footprint. Even companies with expertise on staff may have only a single qualified database administrator (DBA), making vacations or illness a very scary time for an organization - and the DBA.

GSI covers all your needs

At GSI, we have Certified Database Administrators that have extensive experience and certifications in Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, and DB2. All of our services are provided remotely which reduces costs and allows us to have expertise available around the clock. Our DBAs provide custom solutions for:

  • Staff Augmentation o Vacation Support – If your only DBA is going on vacation, let us mind the store while they’re away.
    • First-tier – Do you want to let your DBA focus on more complex duties? Let us take care of the day-to-day activities.
    • Second tier – If you don’t have a senior DBA on staff, let us take some of the worry away by being available for critical situations.
    • Full database management – You don’t need a DBA at all! GSI can handle everything for you from end to end.

  • Security – Do you know how many users have full access to your database? We can find out and fix it.
  • High Availability – Extended uptime requires advanced configurations and expertise.
  • Disaster Recovery – When the tornado hits your data center, how will you get back in business?

JD Edwards focused

Our senior DBAs are also well-known experts in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. They understand the specific ways JDE interacts with all the databases on which it can run. JDE is a complex software suite with many unique considerations when it comes to database configuration. Understanding both sides is important to make sure it all works together efficiently.
