DBInsight has done a great job designing, maintaining and performance tuning our highly complex SQL Server environments. We have some extremely high transaction load, datasets sized into the tens of terabytes and a need for 24x7x365 uptime and their in-house expertise in these areas is second to none.
As part of a performance analysis engagement, Rob Risetto not only identified the root cause of performance issues within the SQL Server and the VMWare level and but he also provided a suite of recommendations, along with the estimated costs involved to implement these recommendations.
No matter how big or small the task, DBInsight has always shown the same high level of professionalism and commitment to doing the task right. Rob Risetto of DBInsight addresses more than just the task at hand - going the extra mile to document/plan against possible issues that may arise in the future.
I have worked with Rob (from DBInsight) over the last 3 years and found him to be a very professional and technical DB consultant. He possesses a knowledge of database management that is unsurpassed.
We have been relying on Rob from DBInsight to help with our Azure SQL Server database since September 2015.We initially engaged him when our database was at 60GB and we were experiencing high CPU/IO, whilst on the highest pricing tier offered by Azure SQL (at the time it was P3).
He quickly got our queries under control, but more remarkably, with his continued help we were able to remain on the same pricing tier as our client base more than doubled and our database grew to over 800GB.
Recently, just as it looked like we were going to have to scale up due to database size, Rob helped out again and reduced the database to less than half – thus allowing us to remain on the same pricing tier for the foreseeable future.
Rob has also provided SQL training to my team which was great in raising the overall awareness of what to consider when writing application code that will invariably require access to the database.
So Rob has saved us money – no doubt about it – but there is something more important and valuable to us – Rob provides us peace of mind – knowing that he is always there to help fix the database when things go wrong – to me, that is priceless.
Having Rob help out when required is a great solution for us, and in my opinion more effective and cost effective than an inhouse DBA. Rob gains experience from helping out a bunch of clients which means that he can always recommend new and improved ways that we could/should do things.
To Rob, I say, thanks heaps for all your help over the years – you have kept us running.
Not surprisingly, I definitely and unequivocally recommend Rob and DBInsight to any organization with a database – be it, on-prem or cloud.
