SQL Sentry Introduces v7.5 for AlwaysOn Monitoring
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SQL Sentry, Inc., the developer of award-winning software for Microsoft SQL Server, introduced v7.5 of SQL Sentry. The Power Suite continues its category dominance as the most complete monitoring solution available for SQL Server, with seamless history tracking and the lowest documented server overhead. With v7.5, SQL Sentry is the first to market with integrated, visual monitoring and management for AlwaysOn.
"Our ultimate objective with this release of SQL Sentry Performance Advisor was to increase visibility and manageability around AlwaysOn in dramatic fashion, thereby enabling it to reach its full potential," said Greg Gonzalez, President and CEO, SQL Sentry. "This new functionality is so powerful, some of our clients are even using it for resource management across commodity servers, something I'm not sure the AlwaysOn creators ever envisioned."
The SQL Sentry Monitoring service actively collects data from availability group primaries, secondaries and failover cluster instances (FCIs) as appropriate to present a seamless view of the AlwaysOn environment.
"SQL Sentry's AlwaysOn monitoring has been instrumental to the success of our new SQL as a Service offering," said Denis McDowell, Managed Services Architect, Peak 10. "SQL Sentry provides dramatically enhanced visibility and manageability around AlwaysOn availability groups, enabling us to deliver reliable and predictable performance to our clients in a geographically distributed multi-tenant environment."
v7.5 is packed with many ground-breaking features, all designed to simplify your AlwaysOn environment. Key Features include:
- Multiple unique AlwaysOn topology layouts display the environment from different perspectives.
- Dynamically changing flow lines highlight bottlenecks in the environment.
- Context-aware charts and grids provide historical performance and health details over any date range.
- Visual indicators on each replica provide quick cues about group health and configuration.
- Notifications can be easily configured for health changes and failovers.
All of this new functionality is included at no additional cost over the base Performance Advisor for SQL Server license. To download v7.5, go to the SQL Sentry website at www.sqlsentry.net.
