Health Check

By: Buda Consulting  06-Dec-2011

Is Your Database Healthy?

How much revenue would you lose if your database is down for an hour? Or a day?

According to InfoManagement Direct, downtime costs can range from $90,000 per hour in the Media Industry, to $6.4M per hour for online brokerages. Do you know the cost for your organization? What about the cost of idle workers… regulatory penalties… SLA penalties?

How are you going to explain the next outage to the boss?

Unless you are actively performing regular database health checks, you are at risk right now.  Problems are likely already there, waiting for the worst possible time to appear;  Just before month-end closeout,  Just before a major product rollout, or Friday at 4:30pm!
