Canada based database administration company now offers services to SMBs and consulting for MySQL.

After 20 years of successful business, The DBA Shoppe is pleased to announce they have expanded their database services. They now offer services to small and medium businesses (SMB) and project, operational and consultative database administration (DBA) services for the MySQL database platform. The DBA Shoppe is made up of a highly skilled group of DBA consultants that until now have offered services exclusively for Fortune 100 companies.

“We’re excited to now work with SMBs and look forward to the challenge,” said principal of consulting services, David Brown. “With Fortune 100 companies, we’re almost always working closely with an existing client DBA team. With SMBs we’re going to have a bigger role in leadership, management and ensuring we closely guide companies towards reaching their end database administration goals.”

The DBA Shoppe has also decided to expand their services by offering consulting and operational services for the MySQL database platform. The DBA Shoppe has carefully monitored the progress of MySQL by watching its growth as an application and database platform in various database environments and its purchase by Oracle Corporation. This open source platform is available for various customizations such as adding security components or removing components in the base platform to increase the speed of system operations.

“We are very excited to officially add MySQL to our supported database platforms,” Brown said. “It is always exciting to see a database platform grow from infancy to maturity and MySQL is firmly entrenched in that process.”
MySQL has found one of its niches in highly available and active web site environments such as on-line subscription services and blog sites. Companies are choosing to use MySQL in cases where they may previously have considered Oracle or SQL Server.

All of the DBA Shoppe’s DBAs are now certified in Oracle, SQL Server and MySQL. The DBA Shoppe will continue to review and renew current DBA practices and certifications to better service their clients and expand their business.

About the DBA Shoppe:
