A third-party database monitoring tool is an investment that drives enormous value for the bottom line of your business in ten key ways. Here's how:
Whether your databases are on-premises or in the cloud, SQL Monitor lets you manage them with one tool, from one screen, so you can gain the advantages of moving to the cloud easier and faster.
Research from Statista shows that the average cost per hour of enterprise server downtime is $301,000 - $400,000 – but it rises to more than $1m per hour for 40% of businesses. A monitoring tool gives your team the ability to be proactive vs reactive, offering major savings through faster resolution and prevention should downtime occur.
SQL Monitor lists information about Microsoft licenses and the configuration options of SQL Server, which helps save time for Microsoft ‘true-up' audits as well as common security audits.
At Redgate, we estimate that the annual savings realized with monitoring tools could be well over the $85,000 mark. That's based on 20 servers and doesn't include the outage and downtime costs that may also be experienced. If your estate consists of 100+ servers, that saving will be much higher.
Complex systems and processes around server monitoring can waste time and increase frustration for IT teams. An intuitive solution gives DBAs the actionable information they need from an estate overview screen and in just a couple of clicks, which is the kind of user experience that appeals to both existing staff and new hires.
It also helps to address a major issue highlighted in an Insight report from Redgate's 2021 State of Database Monitoring survey, which showed that the staffing and recruitment of data professionals is one of the biggest challenges organizations face.
As of April 2022, SQL Monitor has an Overall Rating of 4.3 out of 5 in the IT Infrastructure Monitoring Tools, based on 14 reviews.
