An age-old question when it comes to staffing a DBA group is how to determine the right number of DBAs required to keep your organization's databases online and operating efficiently.

However, that assumption is probably not entirely true. An overworked DBA staff can make mistakes that cause downtime and operational problems far in excess of the salary requirements of an additional DBA.
