What does a database administrator (dba) do?

The primary responsibility of the dba is to design and implement a company's database architecture. This includes determining the type of database management system (DBMS), as well as how many servers are needed. The dba also installs and configures all necessary software, including operating systems and DBMSes. The dba also ensures all data stored in the database is secure against hackers or malicious third parties. They achieve this by performing regular backups on their own or sending them offsite for safekeeping.

Frequently asked questions

A database administrator (or dba) is a tech professional who manages databases and administers them. Their job is to make sure that the data they store is safe and secure at all times. They also monitor performance issues that arise from using databases. A dba is sometimes referred to as a database engineer or database architect.

A dba’s responsibilities include designing, creating, and maintaining databases; monitoring database activity to ensure it runs efficiently and identifying security risks and vulnerabilities in an effort to minimise them. They should also be able to communicate effectively with their team and stakeholders.

A good database administrator will have a solid knowledge of SQL and other database languages, as well as experience in both relational and non-relational databases. They should be able to work independently and solve complex problems with minimal guidance.

A talented dba can maintain data models, understand the uses of different types of databases, and be able to choose the best one for their company’s needs. They should also be able to fix issues that arise from poor database design or implementation.

Freelance dbas have experience with different databases and can work with any of them. This means they'll be able to get up to speed quickly and help you make decisions about what kind of system will work best for your business.The role of freelance database administrators has grown over recent years as more businesses move away from large-scale dedicated server farms towards cloud computing services like Amazon Web Services (AWS).

There's no one path to becoming a dba. Many people start out as programmers or engineers, while others come from business backgrounds.
