Understanding your performance needs

DB Best has worked with hundreds of customers over the years, helping them get the most out of their database technologies. Regardless of your database platform, the ability to meet your performance requirements all boils down to CPU utilization, memory pressure, disk latency, and network latency. By having a good baseline on your database server performance, it helps highlight when things go wrong. There are many factors which can impact performance.

For example:

  • A loose fiber channel connector can certainly impact the performance of even the fastest all-flash memory disk array.
  • A change in data distribution can impact the query execution plan resulting in queries suddenly running much slower than expected.
  • Adding reporting queries directly against your transaction processing system can starve CPU cycles for your critical transactions.
  • Running with non-commercial SSD storage could result in lower IOPS throughput over time.

Running workloads on public clouds like Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and Google Cloud Platform can often solve many of the hardware related performance issues. However, even they experience interruptions over time. New database self-tuning features such as SQL Server 2017 Automatic Query Tuning or Oracle Database 18c with Autonomous Database Performance claim to solve all of your problems. Yet, when it comes down to it, you are likely running older versions of your database engine.

This is where DB Best comes in: As a world leader in database migrations, we understand the ins and outs of every major platform. As part of our migration projects, we routinely benchmark source database performance to ensure our customers are achieving all the benefits of moving to a modern database platform. In some cases, we’ve even shown how our customers can simply fix lingering performance issues on their original database platform instead of committing to a migration project.

These are just some of the database platforms that we are able to optimize and upgrade.
