SentryOne SQL Sentry Named “Best DBA Solution” in DBTA Readers’ Choice Awards

Sponsored by Businesswire

SentryOne, the leading provider of data DevOps and database performance monitoring capabilities for the Microsoft Data Platform, is honored to have its SQL Sentry solution named “Best DBA Solution” in the 2019 Database Trends and Applications Readers’ Choice Awards. The awards program highlights the best information management solutions in the industry based on nominations and votes from their users and DBTA readers.

The flagship SentryOne product, SQL Sentry, is the industry’s top-rated SQL Server database performance monitoring solution, with the proven scalability to handle growing enterprise workloads. SQL Sentry helps data professionals collect and present detailed, actionable performance metrics, customize alerts for proactive monitoring, and managed high-impact SQL Server events through a Microsoft Outlook-style calendar. SQL Sentry also provides powerful SQL query analysis and tuning capabilities with the integrated SentryOne Plan Explorer functionality.

SentryOne SQL Sentry enabled the DocuSign database team to dive deeply into SQL Server performance, collecting the necessary metrics and statistics to keep its site running at peak performance. DocuSign Director of Database Operations, Shawn McMillian, stated, “SQL Sentry had a much lower impact on our systems. The total impact on an individual server was much less than with our previous solution. For one thing, SQL Sentry didn’t run DBCC input buffers everywhere. It also provided much more detail and enabled us to manage our own wait stats to pick up more advanced analytics, thanks to normalizing procedure calls and simple data aggregation.”

In addition to its advanced monitoring capabilities, data professionals rely on SentryOne for exceptional customer support. The company has a 98.6 percent customer satisfaction rating and an industry-leading Net Promotor Score of 75.

“SQL Sentry was born from a dilemma that most database administrators experience: finding a balance between effectively managing and monitoring SQL Server and the desire to not be on call 24/7,” said SentryOne Founder and Chief Technical Officer, Greg Gonzalez. “It’s an honor to see our flagship product relied upon and appreciated by so many DBAs and IT business leaders as we continue to evolve SQL Sentry to keep pace with the mounting responsibilities of data professionals.”

For DBAs looking to expand their database performance monitoring capabilities, SentryOne recently announced that the cloud version of SQL Sentry, SentryOne Monitor, is currently in preview. SentryOne also has a comprehensive online self-paced SQL Sentry training program provided at no additional cost to customers.
