Mid-sized Media Company Saves Costs & Improves Coverage


In today’s fast-paced media and entertainment landscape, staying ahead of the competition requires not only great content but also seamless database management. This case study delves into the success story of a mid-sized media company that partnered with Datavail, a leading provider of remote database management services. By addressing their challenges head-on and leveraging Datavail’s expertise, this media company was able to achieve significant cost savings while improving their round-the-clock coverage. Let’s take a closer look at how they did it.

The Challenges

When this mid-sized media company decided to enlist the help of Datavail, they had two primary challenges in mind:

  1. Providing Better Coverage
    To meet the demands of their audience and advertisers, this media company wanted to ensure round-the-clock coverage for their databases. They needed 24×7 support, including weekends and holidays, to guarantee uninterrupted access to critical data.
  2. Reducing Turnover and Burnout
    Managing databases can be an arduous task that often leads to high turnover rates or burnout among in-house database administrators (DBAs). The media company sought a solution that would alleviate the strain on their DBA team while maintaining efficiency and productivity.

The Use Case

To address these challenges effectively, the mid-sized media company turned to Datavail for remote database management services. They entrusted Datavail with managing their Oracle databases remotely, allowing their in-house team to focus on strategic initiatives rather than day-to-day maintenance tasks.

The Results

Partnering with Datavail brought about several tangible benefits for this media company:

Lowered Database Administration Costs

By outsourcing their database management needs to Datavail, the media company significantly reduced their costs associated with hiring and retaining full-time DBA staff. The company reported saving 25-50% on costs by utilizing Datavail’s remote database management services.

Improved Round-the-Clock Coverage

With Datavail’s 24×7 support, including weekends and holidays, the media company achieved the level of coverage they desired. Their critical data was now monitored and managed around the clock, ensuring uninterrupted access for their internal teams and stakeholders.

Retained On-Staff Resources

By offloading routine database management tasks to Datavail, the media company was able to relieve their in-house DBA team from the pressures of constant on-call rotations. This resulted in increased job satisfaction and reduced turnover rates among their DBA staff.
