Microsoft SQL provides a powerful server infrastructure which, like all servers, requires regular support to ensure optimum performance. While your in-house IT team may be able to handle the day-to-day running, it’s highly likely that, at some point, you’ll need specialist help.
As well-established experts in providing high quality IT services UK-wide, what Life IT don’t know about Microsoft SQL isn’t worth knowing. They’ve highlighted some important factors to consider when choosing a provider to support your SQL installation…
A service contract tailored for you
No two businesses are identical, so it follows that no two SQL implementations are identical. For this reason, avoid providers offering a “one size fits all” approach to support. Tailor your service package to suit the needs of your business and your servers and you’ll enjoy more efficient, better value SQL admin support.
It’s this ethos of flexible service contracts that’s earned Life IT an enviable reputation for quality and service. And thanks to their high level of knowledge and experience, they can provide support for and solutions to the most complex of SQL installations.
Optimised for the present, prepared for the future
High quality Microsoft SQL support will, of course, ensure your server is fully optimised, stable and secure. Your server should have regular healthchecks and performance tuning carried out to get the best from it. And it’s inevitable that you’ll need to upgrade or migrate your server at some point, so choose a provider who can do this for you.
Life IT’s expert teams offer all aspects of SQL admin, with 24/7 monitoring to ensure everything’s running smoothly. What’s more, their services include SQL development – so if you require bespoke applications in the future, they have the skills and experience you’ll need.
Support and advice whenever you need it
It can be impossible to predict when you’ll need to access your support team, so it’s important to choose a provider who’s available whenever you need them. For many businesses support during regular office hours will suffice, while for others 24/7 availability is essential.
Life IT’s support infrastructure is available from 9am to 6pm 365 days a year as standard – but full 24/7 cover is available if you need it. Not sure? Life IT can help you choose the level of service that works best for you.
