A database administrator is an individual that installs, configures, upgrades, monitors, and maintains the databases of an organization or company. Remote DBA support allows the database administrator to be at a separate location from the company they perform the system monitoring for. This means that the actual corporation that is using the remote dba support may be located in Los Angeles, California, and the actual person implementing security measures, and improving the performance and capacity of the database may be in New Jersey.

An individual that is working in remote DBA support must have a good understanding of distributed computing architecture, and they must have some database design skills. They will need to understand the operating system that is being used and they need knowledge of RDBMS and things like Oracle Database and Microsoft SQL Server.

The individuals will be responsible for things like installing and upgrading the server and all application tools, along with allocating the system storage and planning what future storage requirements the company may have. They are primarily in charge of the establishing and maintaining of the system security measures that are in place. They will enroll the users that are allowed access to the database.

They will make certain that everything is in compliance with all vendor license agreements and they will be responsible for planning the backup and recovery of all information stored in the system. They maintain all of the archived information and they optimize the performance of the system.

They are responsible for generating reports on the system, the storage capacity of the system, and all other necessary documentation the company may have. They also contact the various vendors for technical support when the system encounters a problem.

These individuals work under many different job titles. They are the company data analysts, and the junior database administrators. They are the midlevel database administrators and the senior database administrators within a company. Some companies refer to the employees that fill these needs as being the database consultants while others call them the managers or directors of the database administration or of the information technology.

Regardless of what the remote DBA support professionals are called by their employers they are the people that safeguard all of the important information that is stored. They make certain that only people with the authorization to access this information can do so and they make certain that in the case of system failure they are able to retrieve any information that was stored.
