SQL Database Administration Implementation Services

The following services will be provided during your Meditech Data Repository configuration:

1. Installing and upgrading an SQL Server

The Database Administrator (DBA) is responsible for installing SQL Server or upgrading an existing SQL Server. In the case of upgrading the SQL Server, the DBA is responsible for making sure that if the upgrade is not successful, the SQL Server can be rolled back to an earlier release until the upgrade issues can be resolved.

2. Monitoring the database server’s health and tuning it accordingly

Monitoring the health of the database server means making sure that the following is done:

  • The server is running with optimal performance
  • The server is properly configured with the correct amount of memory and the proper configuration parameters
  • The error log or event log is monitored for database errors
  • Databases have routine maintenance performed on them and the overall system has periodic maintenance performed by the system administrator

3. Using storage properly

Maintaining the proper use of storage means making sure that databases and transaction logs are created correctly, monitoring space requirements, and adding new storage space when required

4. Backing up and recovering data

Backup and recovery are the DBA’s most critical tasks and include the following:

  • Establishing standards and schedules for database backups
  • Developing recovery procedures for each database
  • Making sure that the backup schedules meet the recovery requirements

5. Managing database users and security

The DBA is responsible for setting up user’s database server login IDs and determining the proper security level for each user. Within each database, the DBA is responsible for assigning permissions to the various database objects such as tables, views, and stored procedures
