Database Maintenance

After some initial scoping work, we set about reducing the overall footprint of their large database.

This involved rearchitecting parts of the system, finding opporunities to remove columns and tables, and understanding what data could be safely removed.

We worked closely with their development team to understand the nuances of the system and embarked on removing almost 20 million records in total. We did this without any downtime.

Client Testimonials

Toby and Elaine did a bunch of work for us at Niice ( Myself and the rest of the team were kept up to speed with all work being completed. They helped us solve problems we wouldn't have been able to without them and I expect we'll be working together again in the near future. Paul McBride, Senior Developer, Niice

They’re a dream to work with. We had a wide range of infrastructure problems: from databases running on legacy setups to new SSO integrations. Whatever we threw at them, Tosbourn were methodical about diagnosing the issue, proposing a clear solution, then working through it step-by-step and documenting everything along the way.

Most importantly, they freed up headspace on our side: they always kept us in the loop and knew when to get our input, but for the most part we could focus on other things while they cheerfully fixed our mess.
