Ntrust® Database Appliance
Ntrust™ is the proprietary database appliance platform that is unique to Ntirety’s Database Administration as a Service®. Ntrust comes equipped with a database tool suite that Ntirety's team of Database Administrators have created over time including a heart beat process; log analyzers, Backup Assurance and many other tools. Ntrust also incorporates best-of-breed database tools developed by leading software vendors.
Ntirety has designed its Ntrust Database Appliance with flexibility and deployment options in mind. Specifically, Ntrust is available in physical (1U rack-mounted configuration) and virtual (VMware ESX or Citrix XenServer container) configurations, both of which have been engineered at Ntirety to facilitate our monitoring and managing of our clients’ database environments in an optimal manner.
24x7 Monitoring System
The Ntrust Database Appliance monitors the client database environment and relays status of the key database health attributes with the Ntirety Database Operation Center. Amongst these attributes are:
Based on pre-defined thresholds, the Database Operations Center can automatically “self-heal” numerous database error conditions. In fact, Ntirety currently self-heals close to 50% of all system alerts. Alerts that are not resolved through self-healing are automatically passed through to the Ntirety Service Desk.
