Oracle Guardian Service FAQ’s

How does it work?
Our Senior Database Administrators are the best of the best. With our Guardian Services, a minimum of two DBAs will be assigned to your systems. Since our DBAs are intimately familiar with Oracle database administration, they will be able to provide you with a superior level of support.

Our DBAs will login daily to perform health checks and will provide a comprehensive report at the end of each week highlighting strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats and a list of suggested work for the following week.

LTC DBAs work closely with your staff. You decide if interactive or autonomous support is right for you. Our DBAs can take the lead as necessary to free up management by making the day-to-day decisions associated with managing a database.

Why Oracle Guardian if I have already purchased support?
Our Guardians provide a service beyond that of normal support people: we take the necessary steps to prevent the need for emergency database support entirely. While it’s important to have support options available if you need them, isn’t it better to avoid needing them at all?

Our remote DBA services will be customized specifically for your business. Choose proactive maintenance over reactionary repair.

We already have DBAs, so why do I need the Oracle Guardian Service?
LeadThem Consulting’s top-level Database Administrators complement your internal resources and allow your team to be more efficient, while at the same time providing mentoring and training as appropriate.
