17 Oct Database Hosting Solution vs In-House Database Administrator
If you’re operating a mining or exploration company in a FIFO work environment then having a hosted data management solution makes excellent business sense.
There are many costs that come with employing your own ‘in-house’ Database Administrator (DBA), and when you have additional FIFO costs to consider, employing your own DBA may not be the best solution.
Here are some of the costs of having your own DBA that you can avoid by having a Hosted Database Solution.
- Superannuation and all other employee salary requirements
- Employee costs – Workstation, hardware and software costs
- Flight costs
- Boarding costs (food and accommodation)
- Database backup costs
Maxwell’s hosted database solutions offer even more cost savings that may not be as obvious as these yet offer significant benefits for our mining and exploration clients.
Data Backup and Security – All Maxwell’s hosted databases are backed up daily in Fremantle and then backed up offsite in a third party secure facility, reducing your risk of lost data.
