SQL Sentry Launches Plan Explorer Pro

October 30, 2012

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — SQL Sentry, Inc., the developer of award-winning software for Microsoft SQL Server, announced today at Dev Connections in Las Vegas, two new versions of their popular query tuning tool: Plan Explorer FREE and the launch of the new Plan Explorer PRO.

SQL Sentry Plan Explorer was launched two years ago and has since become one of the most popular free tools available to the SQL Server Community. The latest version adds several requested features, enhancements and product fixes while continuing to be free of charge. Users are able to directly download without any required registration.

SQL Sentry Plan Explorer PRO delivers additional user efficiency via Session History Tracking and new functionality regarding Wait Statistics, Full Query Call Stack information and Deadlocks analysis.

“SQL Sentry Plan Explorer PRO was developed in response to many users’ requests for additional features and functionality that fall beyond the scope of a free tool,” said Greg Gonzalez, President and CEO, SQL Sentry. “Several of the features required significant development effort but they deliver the enhanced efficiency that busy SQL Server professionals require.”

Connections is the perfect venue for the official launch of SQL Sentry Plan Explorer PRO. This tool benefits anyone writing, tuning or supporting SQL Server Query Plans. The entire spectrum of the Microsoft developer community is well represented at Connections and we expect that our new product will be widely utilized by the attendees as they return to their daily activities.

“So many SQL Server DBAs and developers have benefited from Plan Explorer, I am pleased to tell them that we continue to enhance and support this free tool. At the same time, I am excited to share that we have gone to the next level with Plan Explorer PRO,” said Aaron Bertrand, Senior Consultant for SQL Sentry and SQL Server MVP. “If you work with query plans every day, the additional functionality and efficiency enhancements will pay for the license investment in only a few days.”
