Let me solve your SQL Server problems
I’m starting a SQL Server consultancy business, focussing more on short term engagements. I’m keen to know what problems you are having with SQL Server that you would like someone to have a look at it. So for my first month only (January 2021), I’m offering 10 free SQL Server Health Checks to get my business moving.
What do you get from me?
For January 2021, I have 10 free SQL Server health checks to offer free of charge. I’ll present the results with actionable steps for you to take. View a sample health check.
If you receive one of my free SQL health checks and you need some help in implementing the recommendations, there is 50% off my consulting rates for January 2021 only. Contact me directly for more information on this.
What is the cost?
The SQL Server health check is free of charge. (January 2021 only) I’ll send you a report for free and if we schedule a follow up call, that will be free. For this, the only thing I would ask for is a recommendation that I can put on this website and on nebuladatasolutions.co.uk as well as one on LinkedIn. There is no obligation to recommend me however.
Why would you want my help?
I’ve been working with SQL Server for around 10 years now. I’ve worked with large multinational companies and privately held enterprises, that operate on a global scale. I have a track record of solving problems related to SQL Server performance and I’m an experienced production DBA as well.
I also have a proven track record in cost optimisation of cloud resources, on both AWS and Azure. In my last contract, I saved the customer over £400k per year between SQL and storage costs.
- MCSE: Data Management and Analytics certification
- AWS Cloud Solutions Architect Associate
- Azure: AZ-900 & DP-900
DBA Troubleshooting Impact
It’s been a genuine pleasure John. You’ve come to the rescue so many times I’ve lost count.Duncan Lundie, Head of Application Operation, City Facilities Management
Best of luck John. It’s been a pleasure and you’ve been a lifesaver (more than…) a few timesRonnie McGee, Senior Project Manager, City Facilities Management
Thanks for everything John. You will really be missed in terms of approach, achievements, mindset and skills! It’s been great working with you and hopefully our paths will cross again.Stephen Meeke, Principal Engineer, City Facilities Management
Cost optimization (cloud)
Superb work on project X! Proactive, detailed, outcome driven and focused!Nick Prudhoe, CTO, City Facilities Management
John is doing a fantastic job on Project X pushing the boundaries and saving thousands of pounds to Mercury. For me, it’s not just the cost savings which makes him stand out but the “Agile” thinking and drive to make things better.Gautam Sivakumar, Cluster Lead, City Facilities Management
I’ve spoken at major data platform conferences such as SQLBits, Data Scotland and DataGrillen. I blog regularly and I also contribute to open source projects on GitHub. I try to be a member of the SQL community who gives as much as he takes.
What other things can I help with?
- I can review and fix your indexes.
- Tune queries, stored procedures or views to return data faster.
- Health check of your instance, to reassure you or tell you what needs to be fixed.
- Review your cloud expenditure and identify savings.
- Configure Availability Groups.
- Most production DBA activities/tasks.
These are just a few examples, you can ask me anything.
Why am I doing this?
I’m looking to build a business, rather than go into a new job. To do so, I need clients. I think the best way to go about that is to build up a public profile for doing this kind of work. It will be for a limited time only, I’m not a fan of working for free unless it helps the community or a good cause.
Let’s do this, send me your details to request a free SQL Server Health Check.
