Oracle Database Health Checks

Eliminate Unplanned Outages

Our Oracle Database Health Check is a Comprehensive Analysis of the Database configuration. We’ll insure that administrative best practices are being used and that the database is well-configured given the workload(s) and specific or unique customer requirements.

The fundamental goals of SkillBuilders’ health check are to insure that the database will continue to operate with minimal DBA and SA intervention (i.e. self-managing), reduce unplanned outages and to meet the customers’ specific and/or unique goals (e.g. extreme scalability).

The health-check might also reveal opportunities for cost-savings (e.g. consolidation, perhaps with Oracle Multitenant Database).
