CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- SQL Sentry, Inc., the developer of award-winning software for Microsoft SQL Server, announced today that renowned SQL Server expert Aaron Bertrand has joined their staff as Senior Consultant. Honored by Microsoft as a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) since 1997, Aaron has over 10 years of technical experience with Microsoft SQL Server. His responsibilities include development of SQL Sentry consulting services; interacting with clients; and driving new product initiatives.
"Aaron Bertrand has amazing in-depth knowledge and experience with SQL Server and he has been generously sharing it for years with the SQL Server Community as noted by his recognition in various community venues. Who better for a SQL Server Independent Software Vendor (ISV) to have in house than the person who has far and away provided the most feedback to Microsoft on SQL Server itself," said Greg Gonzalez, President and CEO of SQL Sentry. "I have no doubt that Aaron will have a significant impact on our company and our software in many different ways."
"I cannot overstate the significance of this addition to our team. Aaron is a noted expert, author and major community figure in our and Microsoft's eyes. He has had years of experience in a voluminous SQL Server enterprise supporting business critical applications and he can clearly identify and communicate the value of tools to overworked DBAs," said Nick Harshbarger, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for SQL Sentry. "I am confident that Aaron will not only make a considerable contribution to our success and growth but also to supporting and improving the SQL Server community."
"As a long-time user of SQL Sentry's software, I've been impressed by the quality of their products as well as the camaraderie of the entire team," said Aaron Bertrand. "Over the past year I have been involved in a benchmarking project that has measured in very fine and excruciating detail the minimal overhead of using SQL Sentry to monitor SQL Server. I can't wait to continue the work on this project as well as many others."
