Paragon was built to provide two distinct and complimentary services. Paragon provides consultation, monitoring and operation support services. These can be short and long term operational support enagements, one time review services and monitoring implementation services. Paragon also provides training services. This includes in house training for larger companies.
It is philosophy that it is critical that those who train are also in the field -- seeing the operational issues that a DBA will experience in the trenches. Only then can the teacher be truely effective. Because of this philosophy anyone who is a teacher is also doing operational support on a frequent basis.
