RDX DBaaS Support

The impact DBaaS environments have on IT support organizations is far greater than most shops realize.  DBaaS is not a product; it is an architecture.   An architecture that requires changes in administrative and monitoring support activities, policies and procedures, application design, change management, security/auditing and in-house support toolsets.  Companies moving to the cloud need a partner that has DBaaS experience to act as a trusted advisor as well as a data infrastructure services provider.

 

That's where RDX comes in. 

 

Our dedicated teams of Amazon RDS, Microsoft Azure DBaaS and Oracle Cloud DB support specialists are with you every step of the way.  From initial system design and implementation to mature environment administration and monitoring, you can rely on RDX's expertise to ensure your cloud deployments are high-quality and fully leverage all of the inherent features each vendor offering provides.

Azure SQL DB Services

Azure DBaaS

Microsoft is shifting from being a proprietary, on-premises software company to a cloud based services business. Azure is the most popular cloud platform for RDX's customers.  RDX's Azure DBaaS specialists have years' of experience supporting dozens of systems including Azure SQL DB, Microsoft's flagship cloud database.

Amazon RDS

Amazon RDS

Amazon currently offers a broad and deep suite of cloud DBMS services. RDX's Amazon RDS services include provisioning, implementation, migration and ongoing administration and monitoring support for Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL and Amazon Aurora.

Oracle Cloud DB

Oracle Cloud DB

Although late to the DBaaS competitive market arena, Oracle is rapidly catching its competitors in features and functionality.  RDX's Cloud DB team has experience migrating, administering and monitoring Oracle cloud databases.  In addition, RDX is able to leverage GoldenGate to synchronize on-premises and cloud systems.
