DBA Roles and Responsibilities


Click Me to Check How to be DBA?

DBA Responsibilities

  • Installation, configuration and upgrading of Microsoft SQL Server/MySQL/Oracle server software and related products.
  • Evaluate MSSQL/MySQL/Oracle features and MSSQL/MySQL/Oracle related products.
  • Establish and maintain sound backup and recovery policies and procedures.
  • Take care of the Database design and implementation.
  • Implement and maintain database security (create and maintain users and roles, assign privileges).
  • Database tuning and performance monitoring.
  • Application tuning and performance monitoring.
  • Setup and maintain documentation and standards.
  • Plan growth and changes (capacity planning).
  • Work as part of a team and provide 7×24 supports when required.
  • Do general technical trouble shooting and give consultation to development teams.
  • Interface with MSSQL/MySQL/Oracle for technical support.
  • ITIL Skill set requirement (Problem Management/Incident Management/Chain Management etc)

Types of DBA

  1. Administrative DBA – Work on maintaining the server and keeping it running. Concerned with backups, security, patches, replication, etc. Things that concern the actual server software.
  2. Development DBA – works on building queries, stored procedures, etc. that meet business needs. This is the equivalent of the programmer. You primarily write T-SQL.
  3. Architect – Design schemas. Build tables, FKs, PKs, etc. Work to build a structure that meets the business needs in general. The design is then used by developers and development DBAs to implement the actual application.
  4. Data Warehouse DBA – Newer role, but responsible for merging data from multiple sources into a data warehouse. May have to design warehouse, but cleans, standardizes, and scrubs data before loading. In SQL Server, this DBA would use DTS heavily.
  5. OLAP DBA – Builds multi-dimensional cubes for decision support or OLAP systems. The primary language in SQL Server is MDX, not SQL here

Application DBA- Application DBAs straddle the fence between the DBMS and the application software and are responsible for ensuring that the application is fully optimized for the database and vice versa. They usually manage all the application components that interact with the database and carry out activities such as application installation and patching, application upgrades, database cloning, building and running data cleanup routines, data load process management, etc.

        Dear SANTOSH KUMAR

        As a developer if you are comfortable then it would be a very good job. Don’t merge your
        current profile with the DBA profile as it requires lots of reponsibities and headache..

        Be cool & calm and continue with thesame profile..

      Hi Vamsi,

      How r u.How is going everything for you.
      there are 2 platforms in DBA. 1. Oracle DBA 2. SQL DBA. If you are confident to work in Comman User Interface I would suggest you to go for Oracle DBA . Moreover, Oracle DBA has good future.

      SQL DBA is windows based database administration where you can learn quickly. but keep in mind that opportunities are very rare and less for SQL DBA compared to Oracle DBA.

    Actually after My B tech in IT I wanted to get into administration as i was not much interested in coding. did oracle DBA (10g) from a instsitue
    Got a job where i was interviewed for a oracle position but the job had 99% to do with mysql dba(i finished my oracle certification while i worked)
    I worked around 6 months as mysql dba but had to quit & had a pretty long break due to personal reasons.So now i am very much out of touch with what i learnt.
    But as you said in one of ur post,i am able to learn mysql stuff through trial and errors compared to oracle but for faster learning in advance concepts i think i need much help.

Actually I need a suggestion from you that I’ve been working as programmer for 6yrs but from the begininng for my career sql has always been my interest and have been working on Visual Basic , crystal report and sql server since then so now I want switch as sql developer or sql dba so wat would you suggest to me wat should I do? I have been doing some tasks in sql server like installations database backup scheduling, Import & Export and the most interesting for me is T-Sql ( queries , stored procedure, functions, views etc) for 4.5yrs . So what my next step should be to enter in SQL career ?

      1. MSSQL and Oracle both are RDBMS system. MSSQL runs on windows only whereas Oracle is platform independent. They follow the diff. architecture.
      2. both are same
      3. Yes

    Hi Jugal,

    Your articles are very helpful and easy to understand. I was very much interested in SQL DBA so I did a SQL DBA course for two months and now looking jobs for sql dba,unfortunately from 1 year I am not getting any jobs and not even internships . To be honest from the course I have got good knowledge( not 100%) but I am lacking in real time experience of how actual things will go as a DBA. I have read your previous comments you are very helpful in replying to almost every person. I would like some tips for my career like if at all I get an interview chance what should I expect at interview ? and do companies actually hire for sql dba freshers ? If they don’t, what is the next step should I take ? Please reply me.

    Thanks
    Muneer

    I am working as a Mysql DBA. I an interested in learning Big Data Hadoop from a reputed institute. Does It have any scope and advantage for my career in future. I have knowledge of Java programming language and PHP that’s not an issue.

    Should I go for it or not, please suggest ?

      I would suggest to check it on the Microsoft and Oracle site as you should have the knowledge of architecture and latest feature as well. I will keep in mind to write this post
