Sequallity's lead SQL Consultant has 24 years of database experience and 19 years have been spent specialising in Microsoft SQL Server consultancy, help and training. Not only can we configure and maintain SQL Server correctly for your particular environment but we can also refactor poorly performing T-SQL queries, add missing indexes and speed up your SQL Server if you have a performance issue. We've done this already at many client sites.

Our SQL Server Consultants can help with any SQL Server related problem, however there are two distinct categories of Problem Resolution (like poor performance) or Project Work (like Upgrading and High Availability).  We have experience in the following:
  • Production DBA
  • Production SQL Server Development
  • Production On-Premise or Virtualised SQL Server Performance Tuning
  • Tuning SQL Server in the Cloud
  • Designing and Implementing High Availability and Disaster Recovery
  • SQL Server Health Checking from Hardware to Queries
  • On-premise SQL Server Migration/On-premise to Azure SQL Database Migration/On-premise SQL to AWS RDS/EC2Migration
  • Creating Business Intelligence data warehouses using SSAS, SSIS and SSRS.
  • SQL Server Support and Remote DBA Services
  • Standard and bespoke training for SQL Server and Power BI, you can pick and mix!
Therefore, we can help from specifying hardware, SQL Server Health Checks to high availability, disaster recovery and database maintenance set-up help.  We can offer cover for your staff or boost your IT staff during SQL oriented projects.  We offer Advice, Implementation and Training.  Whatever you need.  We can work with any version from 6.5 upwards; including 2008 R2, 2012, 2014, 2016, SQL Azure, SQL Server AWS RDS or EC2 and now SQL Server 2017!

SQL Server Database Performance Tuning and Optimisation is but one of our specialities. We understand how SQL Server works at a low level, thus allowing us to understand where problems occur. Full documentation will be produced for your system, if required, detailing observations and recommendations.

We look at hardware, server configuration, disk configuration, software configuration, database configuration, queries and index analysis too. We can implement or instruct your staff on making these changes. The NHS and Tesco have benefited from our experience. One of our clients had a problematic 46 second query and after our tuning it dropped to 0.65 seconds.
For a well-known high street retailer, we managed to get their 50-hour plus overnight process, which needed to be nightly scheduled, down to 2 hours and 20 minutes. Now, it's not just any non-completing overnight process.

Upgrading and Consolidating are other key areas.  With a new yearly release cycle your SQL Server can become out-of-date and unsupported quite quickly. We can help you upgrade your SQL Server, with upgrades to SQL Server 2017 even!

We also help companies leverage the power of features within SQL 2017, SQL 2016 and SQL 2014 . These database releases contain new features like Adaptive Query Processing, Memory-Optimized Tables, Columnstore Indexes and Page Compression.  We also can help with much smaller clients too with SQL Server 2017/2016/2014 Express support.

These are but a few of our experiences. We can take the team lead or project manage SQL projects. We're not just database monsters!

SQL Server

Gone are the days when SQL Server was just a relational database engine, it is now a feature-rich product steeped in complexity.  Microsoft SQL Server has come a very long way.

This client-server database has grown to a sophisticated free edition (SQL Express Edition), encompassed mainstream data analysis (Business Intelligence, Data Warehousing, Analysis Services, Reporting Services, Integration Services) and has a much richer development environment attached to it (T-SQL enhancements).  Microsoft wants to release a new SQL product every year or so and thus increase functionality.

How can we help you?

SQL Server is now finally a proper enterprise business database.  This database software has evolved remarkably in just five version releases (SQL 2017, 2016, 2014, SQL 2012 and SQL 2008).  A database administrator needs to know database programming as well as correct SQL Server maintenance.  We can help by custom building databases and we're also seasoned DBA Administrators too.  We've also had extensive experience with Transact-SQL (T-SQL) Development and Query Tuning.

Perhaps you need a SQL Performance Tuning Consultant, a SQL Developer or a SQL Server Trainer/SQL Consultant.  If you need any of these things, then please call us, we can show you how to get the best out of SQL Server.

Why can you trust Sequallity?

We have worked with both large and small clients, from single stand-alone Small Business Server installations, right up to 250+ SQL Server sites such as Tesco.  We have worked for iSoft, Barclays, Phones4u, Wilkinsons, Business Objects, Greenstar, AutoTrader, Marks and Spencer and the NHS amongst many others.

Also, we've worked with medium-sized companies such as Bravissimo, XMA Computer Products, Coldharbour Systems, Storetech, Qtac, Silverstring, Partybox and FreeIndex. But most of all, we love to help.

We have over 24 years experience in the IT industry, of which 19 years have been using SQL Server 6.5, 7, 2000, 2005, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, 2014, 2016 and now 2017.  We currently support the four main platforms, SQL Server 2017, SQL Server 2016, SQL Server 2014, SQL Server 2012.

We believe that SQL Server 2017 has finally moved SQL Server into the Enterprise arena. Watch out Oracle!

Version 2017, Azure, RDS, 2016, 2014, 2012 or 2008 R2?

Well actually we support all these platforms and
we will also consider work for SQL Server 2008/2005/2000/7/6.5, if required. 
                  It's because we like to help!

MS SQL Server 2017

Microsoft released SQL Server 2017 on 2nd Octoboer 2017 and they decided some years ago to switch to a one or two-year release cycle between the new versions of SQL Server. This improves the product. Next version, SQL Server 2018, probably.

Working Location

We like people, meeting people and trying to resolve the challenges that IT presents.  If you have an emergency, we prefer to dial-in remotely (VPN, MSTSC, TeamViewer) to help resolve the issue (Remote DBA), although we can also get to your site quickly.  If its project work then being on-site suits us right down to the ground.  We have offices in London and the East Midlands but we can work in The City, London, Manchester, the south-east, north, east or west or indeed anywhere in the UK.

Our Ethos

We believe in honesty and integrity. Trust is very important to us and we try to build this into our relationships with our clients, naturally. Our SQL Server consultants want to do an excellent job, first and foremost.  Please check out our clients page and don't just take our word for it.

We are Sequallity, the SQL Server Consultancy, where SQL and Quality join!
