Optimization, backing up and restoration of databases
A fundamental responsibility of just about every database administrator is the installation of new databases. The DBA will be the central point of contact regarding the database systems that a business uses.
There are many different types of DBAs. The most common type is the type that performs all kinds of administration and computer-related tasks, but it is not uncommon for this role to also focus on specific problem areas.
In the case of larger companies, the role is usually divided into separate job types. The various types include:

Database management is undoubtedly an important component of the IT environment for any business which relies on one or more database systems. Without supervision by a DBA, it is inevitable that application and system outages, downtime and delays will occur. Such issues often result in business interruptions which can adversely affect revenue, customer experience and reputation.
