About SQL Server Expertise & RemoteDBA Services

Who we are

ISI’s SQLRx division focuses on optimizing performance and capacity of SQL Server environments. A unique SaaS offering, SQLRx goes well beyond traditional monitoring tools which might indicate a problem. SQLRx identifies root causes and gives specific steps to remediate. Developed by two widely published subject matter experts, Jeffry Schwartz (30+ years of system analysis) and Lori Brown (20+ years of system administration), SQLRx has been used by leading software publishers to optimize their applications, as well as over 700 end-user clients to tune and maintain their SQL Server environments.

SQLRx comes in two offerings:

  • A SQL server assessment using our award winning WinPerf® application, for quick debugging and tuning of SQL Server environments
  • RemoteDBA®, a monthly subscription service to maintain environments at a fraction of the cost of a full-time DBA

A SQLRx assessment encompasses the complete SQL Performance Tuning analysis of a SQL Server. Our analysis will cover the capacity and utilization levels related to hardware components (processors, memory, disk, network cards) as well as confirm the proper configuration and performance of each. The analysis will also review all SQL Server databases present on the server in depth, looking for any errors, recompiles, or warnings, as well as long running queries and index optimization.
