Database SRE Services from MinervaDB


DBAs have been managing Database Systems infrastructure for several years now addressing performance, scalability, high availability and Database SRE. But, the database volume has grown quite aggressively in last 20 years increasing the operational complexity. When the volume of data increased and adding more database instances to manage in physical, virtual and containers, the obvious solution is to use code to manage database instances (and the tools that runs on them). Technically Database SRE is about an implementation of DBA DevOps infrastructure. Database SRE essentially involves creating a bridge between development and DBA operations.  In MinervaDB, We build custom Database SRE infrastructure for our customers. For instance, a large organization’s implementation of SRE is not the same as that of a startup especially in terms of affording a team for this role. Our Database Infrastructure Operations site reliability engineers are committed to the early discovery of problems to reduce the cost of database infrastructure outage.
