1. THE BEGINNING

This innovation initially came to life when…

Microsoft Certified Professional, Peter Ward saw an opportunity to improve the quality of service to WARDY IT’s Virtual DBA customers whilst keeping costs down by developing a database monitoring and reporting solution. Today, this IP, known as SQL Beacon & MyVirtualDBA powers the award-winning Virtual DBA service, ensuring over 30,000 databases around the world are performing optimally. The Virtual DBA service offers scalable, seamless, world-class SQL Server & Business Intelligence support from Australia’s largest onshore provider of 24x7x365 remote database administration services.

2. WHAT & HOW

The purpose of this innovation is to…

…ensure WARDY IT’s Virtual DBA customers maintain full visibility of their database environment. With the Virtual DBA service,

WARDY IT Solutions developed the MyVirtualDBA portal to provide customers with a deep insight into the status of their SQL Server environment.

It does this by…

…monitoring the database environment to identify any potential risks. MyVirtualDBA is powered by SQL Beacon, monitoring IP developed by WARDY IT Solutions to allow the Virtual DBA team to monitor hundreds of client environments at once while tailoring alerts and thresholds to individual clients. MyVirtualDBA displays the information in a single view, for the client to access.

3. PURPOSE & BENEFITS

This innovation improves on what came before because…

  • Waiting for the daily report to be emailed
  • Calling/emailing the Virtual DBA team and asking for updates
  • Accepting a lack of visibility and hoping for the best!
