Looking for SQL Server consulting for non-MS shop

We are in the Seattle/Tacoma area, looking for a SQL Server consulting group/vendor available 365 days a year for support of our system.
Initially, I need help setting up the best Replication / Import plan from the Production server (SQLS 2012) to the Reporting  server. Whether it be SSIS, Replication, mirroring, linked server, etc.

Then, best practices for monitoring and maintaining with third-party tools, not just Microsoft products.
Remoting in to our servers is possible, but I need a group that is available 24 hour.

Can anyone offer suggestions ?

Thank you!

Hi!

I'd suggest that you go to the PASS website here and select your region (US/Canada) and sub-region (US Northwest). You'll see that there are PASS (Professional Association for SQL Server) chapters in Seattle, Portland, and Tacoma.
You should be able to contact the organisers of these very easily, and they should be the best people to point you in the right direction, as they'll most likely have employees of such firms amongst their membership.

Good luck!
