Let’s face it: We can’t all be the kind of hero who saves the world. But as a database administrator, if you could simplify database migrations and upgrades in your company, wouldn’t that make you a hero with your users and co-workers?
What compels any hero is the desire to help others. DBAs solve database problems and rescue their co-workers and company from the evils of downtime. Of course, your co-workers don’t know (or care) what you’ve done for them to simplify database upgrades and migrations. In fact, they don’t even know that their DBA is a hero.
But they do know downtime, and they don’t like it. The less of it they have to endure, the closer you get to being a hero.
