Confessions of a DBA

“I always avoid requests from DevOps” and Other Admissions
“In fact, I run them in the gap in between uptime, downtime and my own personal time.” 

DBAs are tasked with the most crucial job —protect the data. Secure it, back it up, and ensure production databases are available. DevOps data demands just don’t rank—especially if they crunch production performance.

But times are changing. Today’s DBAs are increasingly expected to help refresh growing non-production environments fast and without hiccups or disclosing sensitive fields. It means reevaluating both their role and their processes. 

Watch this on-demand webinar to explore: 

  • • How the role of the DBA is changing
  • • What modern DBAs are doing differently to meet data demands
  • • Ways to refresh non-production while cutting security risk
