A well-looked-after data platform management is crucial to keeping a business profitable and on track for the future. In one way or another, everything relies on the steady and stable flow of data. That’s why a strong SQL server performance is so important.

Naturally, running a company requires paying attention to many areas, but effective data management is indeed vital. Whether to maintain internal processes, provide direct customer service, monitor business developments, or make confident decisions, a healthy and strong SQL server performance is a must.

Microservices

As pioneers of the data industry, we have helped thousands of businesses worldwide to enhance their SQL Server performance. This has also provided us with invaluable insights concerning troubleshooting and risk avoidance for data platforms.

We have distilled this real-world approach into a complete offering of associated microservices for Lucient Guardian. Extra features envisioned and designed to extend your SQL server infrastructure’s range of action and empower your business intelligence unit. 

  1. Backup 

Data is essential for any company to function properly, the key opening the gate to quickly and confidently making business decisions. Avoid unpleasant surprises and protect your data by always keeping backup copies updated and periodically verified.

  • Performance Monitoring

Some unknown element is making your server and databases not perform fast enough, reducing your processes’ speed. Lucient Guardian uses the SQL servers’ performance indicators to point out where the problems that cause such bottlenecks are located.

  • Data integrity

No matter how good your data system may be, it can be exposed to damage or corruption, making it useless or even unreadable. Lucient Guardian will alert you immediately of any risk that may negatively affect your databases.

  • Index and Statistics Maintenance

If your system experiences sudden speed changes when operating, you may have a problem managing the information. Thanks to periodic maintenance control, Lucient Guardian can detect records that your system no longer uses and that may be decreasing the performance of your servers.

  • Capacity Management

Does your system have the resources to handle the assigned workload effectively? With Lucient Guardian, you will be able to detect when virtual capacity is nearing exhaustion and prevent your server from going down.

  • Job Monitoring

If you wonder why some of the tasks your system performs take longer than normal, stop for no apparent reason, or fail to start, you should check how your server handles them. Lucient Guardian will alert you of any failure, delay, or unusual parameter in the execution of tasks, so you can detect and correct incidents that reduce performance.

  • Patching 

Keep your servers updated and protected with service patches, avoiding risk and loss of performance or non-compliance with mandatory standards. We will notify you each time a new service pack, update, or security provision is released. If you wish, leave the installation of updates to us.

  • High Availability

When High Availability / Disaster Recovery (HA/DR) guidelines are not working properly, your system risks unwanted service interruption without security measures being activated. Lucient Guardian will quickly detect any deterioration of the data environment and minimize the potential risk of failure.

  • Tracer

Keep a record of all changes in your databases’ structure and protect your servers from unwanted or unauthorized modifications.
