Case Studies: SQL Monitor in action
Business communications software company Interactive Intelligence has used Red Gate's SQL Monitor to track its SQL Servers since 2011. Using SQL Monitor has resulted in the following benefits for Interactive Intelligence:
- The database administrator saves two to six hours of work daily
- The IT team is alerted to SQL Server problems before they impact customers
Geekswithblogs.net uses SQL Monitor to keep their servers running smoothly for their users around the world. They use SQL Monitor to help look after server performance, determine why certain issues occur, and get daily statistics on blogger registration and content production.
Find out how SQL Monitor is used to keep track of the databases Monsoon Commerce use to power alibris.com, an online marketplace of more than 150 million items.
Think of the importance of managing and monitoring 10 SQL Servers with more than 500 databases that hold hundreds of millions, in some cases billions, of dollars in sales data.
Then think of John Trumbul of LumiData, a senior software engineer who oversees these operations as combination DBA and lead developer for SETL.
We could tell you some of John's story, but you might not believe us. And, who better to tell the story than John himself?
