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.
