“In v8.0 we’ve addressed the three most frequent requests from our users – performance alerting, baselining, and cloud access – and we’ve done so in typical SQL Sentry fashion,” said Greg Gonzalez, President and CEO, SQL Sentry. “We have never been content to simply tick a feature box – we’ve gone all out to ensure that each feature has been constructed thoughtfully and thoroughly, and integrated seamlessly with the rest of our software, ultimately providing a superior user experience.”

“SQL Sentry v8.0 provides custom insight into performance issues that you define, using the most complicated sets of conditions you can develop,” said Aaron Bertrand, Senior Consultant and SQL Server MVP. “Previously you were left to relying on individual alerts that were not always relevant; now, you can easily make conditions adaptive to a whole variety of things, from the amount of memory available to SQL Server, to the number of concurrent connections, to the time of day and/or day of the week.”

V8.0 is packed with many ground-breaking features, all designed with the singular goal of simplifying the process of performance tuning and optimization. New Key Features include:

    --  Intelligent Alerting provides advanced performance alerting, enhanced
        change detection, and an advisory rule builder all-in-one! v8 ships with
        over 20 pre-configured conditions to get you started, and you can easily
        build your own custom conditions tailored to your specific environment.
    --  Baselining lets you compare current and historical performance, so you
        can quickly detect, alert on, and resolve unhealthy trends before they
        become a problem.
    --  The Cloud Portal (cloud.sqlsentry.com) gives you access to your SQL
        Sentry performance and event data from anywhere you have an Internet

All of this new functionality is included at no additional cost over the base Power Suite for SQL Server license. To download v8.0, go to the SQL Sentry website at www.sqlsentry.com.
