Advantages of Proactive support over Reactive support for the database:
Data is of utmost importance for any business or service organization. Whether it is a small company or branched-organizations, effective management of data is undeniable. Data cannot be efficiently managed unless a well-defined database, which is consistently monitored and maintained, exists. On-site or remote DBA support is essential for efficient data management and security.
On-site DBAs are generally required by very large organizations that require engineers and professionals to be available in person. However, the effectiveness of remote DBA support is undeniable for small and medium-sized companies. It is even more useful if the DBA services are proactive rather than reactive. Proactive DBA can save immense resources and help firms to avoid critical breakdowns. When mishaps are revealed before they disrupt the functions of a company, they can be replaced with positive (or lesser disruptive) alternatives. This is tough to realize unless the difference between proactive and reactive behavior of administration is understood.
Proactive service involves information of danger before it looms over the head. As a result of proactive service, clients are aware of the problem before they become a treat and so, clients have time and options to decide about the best. To understand the difference between proactive and reactive services, let us consider an antivirus. When antivirus is installed and activated on a computer, it is supposed to prevent intrusion of viruses into the system. The alert from an antivirus “update greater features of the antivirus as your computer may be vulnerable to severe threats” is a proactive service. It informs the user that certain severe virus has been introduced for which the system is not updated. On the other hand, if the antivirus fails to protect the system and informs about virus contamination, it is a reactive service. Although the latter kind is very important, it does not allow options and time for the user.
Suppose the database of a business firm runs Oracle. Now, proactive Oracle support means information-alerts about possible disruptions before they turn into threat. This involves information about memory consumption, hardware or software upgrade, required beneficial alteration in the database, etc. When an agency opts for proactive remote DBA support, it must ensure that it the services it gets are proactive indeed. This does not mean the reactive mode of service is waste. In a business would run best if the DBA agency provides both proactive and reactive services to it.
The importance of this explanation seemed necessary because of the various remote DBA support agencies that render reactive service but claim it to be proactive.
