Cornerstone offers a comprehensive non-intrusive database health check service that alerts you to any underlying issues with your databases. Cornerstone does not even need access to your servers to perform this check as long as we can send you the script to be run by your database administrator and they can send us back the compressed file containing the data we collect. Of course if you would prefer Cornerstone to run it, we would need remote access (VPN preferably, or we can initiate it using a WebEx session).
The data we collect is openly available to you also, presented through a series of HTML pages with text and CSV formats available. Cornerstone will then analyze this data and generate a comprehensive report on the health of your database with recommendations for resolving any issues discovered.
Areas reviewed for our clients:
- Database Configuration
- Resources and Database Resource Manager
- Database Administration
- SQL Plan Stability
- Cost Based Optimizer Statistics
- Operating System Statistics
- Active Session History
- Database Performance
- AWR, ASH and ADDM reports
Based on your business needs, Cornerstone can recommend and implement Oracle technologies to maximize your data availability and fault tolerance.
Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) is a shared or fused cache architecture that offers linear scalability and high availability. A shared database is leveraged by multiple servers allowing the most effective load balancing of system resources.
Oracle RAC can be implemented for either the Enterprise Edition or Standard Edition Oracle Database. Standard Edition offers RAC out of the box included with the Standard License for up to four CPU sockets. This provides a highly competitive solution for organizations seeking an active/active clustered solution.
Oracle Data Guard in combination with Oracle RAC delivers a disaster recovery solution that is the most advanced in the industry. Data Guard provides for the deployment of Physical / Logical / Active standby databases. These standby databases can be hosted locally or across a wide distance of separation from the primary production database site, thus providing data protection in the event of loss of primary site. Additionally with Oracle 11g Active Data Guard and 10g/11g Logical Data Guards, data warehousing sourcing can be achieved by leveraging the standby database(s) for reporting / ETL /ELT or any other OLAP/BI solutions.
Oracle GoldenGate is a comprehensive software package for enabling the replication of data in heterogeneous data environments. The product set enables high availability solutions, real-time data integration, transactional change data capture, data replication, transformations, and verification between operational and analytical enterprise systems.
Oracle Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA) intends to accomplish high availability architecture at the lowest cost and complexity within the following technologies:
- Oracle Database
- Exadata Database Machine
- Oracle Exalogic
- Oracle Fusion Middleware
- Oracle Applications Unlimited
- Oracle Fusion Applications
- Enterprise Manager
- Oracle VM
No one can predict when a disaster or service disruption to strike, but smart managers can plan for them. Cornerstone’s Disaster Recovery Analysis reviews your current system configuration, performance, policies and procedures to show you where your critical data is exposed to risk. We will then help you implement changes to reduce your exposure and improve your potential for full and fast recovery should a disaster occur.
Our Disaster Recovery Analysis includes:
- Infrastructure components
- High Availability
- Disaster Recovery Mechanism (Backup/Standby)
- Deliverable – DR Audit Artifact

As a business owner, you want everything to always work as it should.
Small businesses/organizations often cannot afford to pay expensive full-time staff for database and server Management. This leaves your IT staff scrambling to resolve issues with limited staff and experience. You hired your staff to provide business value, not simply to manage basic database and server activities all day.
We produce database support services that meet the on-demand, real-time needs of the business while actively identifying room for improvements. This gives you the best of both worlds: improved business operations, more productive staff, lowered costs, all while having confidence that your technology is working for you when you need it the most.
