CONSULTING RATES AND ENGAGEMENTS
Our consulting rates are among the cheapest in the industry, and we have yet to find a client that we were unable to fully satisfy. We charge an hourly rate of $150/hour for remote assistance. If you need someone to come onsite, we need a week’s notice, and we charge a rate of $1500/day, plus travel expenses. We start out any engagement with a detailed Health Check. This health check is a thourough investigation of your entire server, and database system (SAN hardware included). It typically takes us about a few days to put the health check together, and then we go over the report results presentation style, directly with you, so you can understand what all the technical findings really mean, and how they can be addressed. We charge a flat fee of $1000/instance for the Health Checks, and then from the results of that, we put together a Statement of Work to deliver the options of your choosing, either through the hourly remote rate, or through our onsite consulting rate. Depending on the length of the engagement, we are even flexible with the hourly rate too. Our remote DBA services allow you to purchase a bundle of hours/month, at a discounted rate, and you can use them however you choose. Payment terms for everything except travel expenses, which needs to be provided ahead of time, follows a standard NET 30 payment schedule. We even provide Paypal, and accept credit cards if that makes things easier. Call us today and we can work out a solution to fit your budget.
