The Juggling Act of Modern DBAs

Database performance monitoring can be a real circus! And with an ever-growing amount of technology platforms to manage, we’ve become the ultimate jugglers.  

Didn’t sign up to be a clown?

Hey, I know. I didn’t, either. But, listen, sometimes we’ve gotta adapt to the new roles in which we find ourselves as database administrators. It’s been a progression. Many of us who’ve been around for a bit started out juggling a couple platforms. No big deal. A couple balls in the air. I’m talking Oracle, maybe SQL Server. But now? We’ve got PostgreSQL, Cassandra, MySQL, MongoDB and more. It’s like we’re tossing chainsaws and flaming torches into the mix. It’s no wonder we’re doing triage and fighting fires!

You need a juggling partner.

No offense. I did, too. So what’s helped me keep everything from crashing to the ground? A toolset that supports all the responsibilities I’m juggling, so I can maintain peak performance. For me, personally, I’ve found that partner in Foglight® for Cross-Platform Databases.
