  3. Here’s my definition of the DBA:

    Ensure availability, security, and performance of databases.

    1. Prevent data loss due to hardware failure (mostly backup)2. Prevent data loss due to user action (permissions)3. Ensure adequate performance of database servers (monitoring + tuning)4. Ensure availability of data (High Availability)5. Develop sql code for DB management, develop automatic DB management solutions

  4. I do plenty of the above – and soon to be grading for my Tae Kwon Do black belt. Venting is good!
