Data Warehouse Platforms that VLDB Can Provide Support For

Database Administration as a Service

Database Administration is the process of managing and maintaining database management systems. It is an invaluable function in any organisation that is dependent on their data.


Why struggle with new technologies, spiralling IT costs and complex business requirements? VLDB can take care of all your DBA / Sys Admin requirements without adding to your IT department headcount in a flexible short / long term contract.


We work to a 1 hour response SLA where we analyse the issue and response with an appropriate support level (P1, P2 or P3) with an estimated fix time.

Part of a Team

Our DBAʼs will seamlessly integrate into your IT team, contactable through phone, email and chat (Slack) we will always be on hand to help. You will have a named DBA day to day and your own emergency response team. Our dedicated DBA office in Liverpool ensures that only on-shore consultants will be assigned to your team.

Holiday & Sick Cover

Short term contracts are available to ensure youʼre internal IT team donʼt have to take on DBA responsibilities if your DBA goes on holiday or is signed off sick. VLDB will do a pre-holiday system check and handover to ensure everything goes well in your DBAʼs absence.
