Date: 09/01/2014



Ask the average DBA how they spend the majority of their time and the answer is almost always going to be “performance tuning.” Optimal performance is a constantly moving target. Database transactions and volumes are constantly growing. Business applications are increasing in sophistication with greater user requirements. To stay competitive, companies want speed, scalability, high-availability and cost-efficiency. The challenge, of course, is getting there.
Many IT departments are researching new technologies to address these issues, from database monitoring tools, to new types of databases, to virtualization and cloud solutions. In a recent study conducted over 285 organizations across North America, database performance monitoring was ranked the top area ripe for automation. This same study found that migrating or upgrading databases was the top area for investment, followed closely by virtualization and cloud.
This special report covers the key technologies and services available to overcome the database speed and scalability challenges of today.
