ATLANTA – MAY 16, 2011 – In booth #1829 at Microsoft TechEd 2011, Idera, a leading provider of Microsoft SQL Server management and administration solutions, today announced the availability of Idera SQL doctor™ 2.0.

“SQL doctor 2.0 is the result of our collaboration with industry experts, like SQL Server MVP Pinal Dave, who understand the complexities of analyzing wait statistics on a daily basis,” said Heather Sullivan, Director of SQL Server Products at Idera. “Their expert recommendations are incorporated into SQL doctor to help our users quickly and easily remediate performance problems.”

“SQL doctor is a great tool for anyone who is tasked with improving the performance of SQL server,” said SQL Server MVP Pinal Dave. “It decreases the time it takes to find problems and offers guidance for resolving those problems. The result is significant improvement to your SQL Server performance. SQL doctor is an outstanding product and it was a real pleasure to see the suggestions of my ‘wait types’ blog series integrated into the product.”
