Idera Announces VMware Database Performance Monitoring Solution

Idera Announces VMware Database Performance Monitoring Solution
SQL diagnostic manager Now Offers Comprehensive Performance Management of Virtual SQL Server Environments; Supports SQL Server 2012

LAS VEGAS – MARCH 26, 2012 –  In booth #520 at the DevConnections Conference, Idera, a leading provider of Microsoft SQL Server management and administration solutions, today announced the availability of SQL diagnostic manager® 7.2. Idera’s award-winning SQL Server performance monitoring, diagnostics and collaboration solution now provides comprehensive performance management of database servers running in a VMware environment. SQL diagnostic manager also supports SQL Server 2012 allowing customers to seamlessly manage the latest solution from Microsoft.

Managing performance of SQL Server databases can be challenging in VMware environments  because of the multiple layers involved including physical resources and the myriad of virtualized systems. Additionally, many DBAs lack the necessary tools to gather accurate performance data for both the host and VM environment.

SQL diagnostic manager now provides the visibility needed to ensure high performance of virtual databases with metrics for CPU and memory usage, charts for network throughput and disk usage, alerts on VM and host metrics and the ability to customize VM and host counters. With these new views from the Server Dashboard, DBAs can react quickly to the rapidly changing virtual server environment, decreasing the risk of performance problems or outages.

DBAs also have access to all the relevant and necessary VMware information while on-the-go with SQL diagnostic manager’s mobile interface.

“Managing the performance of SQL Server databases in a VMware environment is extremely complicated,” said Heather Sullivan, Director of SQL Server Products at Idera. “Information needs to be captured, correlated and analyzed from multiple layers – the SQL Server environment, the virtualized server, as well as the physical host. SQL diagnostic manager now monitors all of these systems and reports back to DBAs on the health of their overall SQL Server environment while at their desk or on-the-go.”
