Percona Remote DBA for MySQL

You are here

The Percona Remote DBA (rDBA) service provides your organization with DBA experts which login to your MySQL® servers remotely, whether you are hosting your own servers or running your MySQL deployment in the cloud. The Percona DBAs manage the performance and availability of your MySQL servers. Operational best practices are applied to ensure your systems are running reliably and smoothly. Percona Remote DBA includes assistance with common backup issues. Our MySQL database manager will configure your MySQL backup database and conduct MySQL backup and restore operations as required. Percona Remote DBA has a fixed monthly cost based on the size of your deployment and includes an unlimited number of issues. We support most versions of MySQL including MySQL by Oracle®, Percona Server, and MariaDB®. We also support Percona XtraDB Cluster and other High Availability architectures and tools. We utilize a variety of software solutions to deliver optimal operations such as Percona XtraBackup and Percona Monitoring Plugins.
