About SQL Sentry

We deliver premier software solutions for monitoring and optimizing data performance in world-class Microsoft SQL Server and Windows environments.

SQL Sentry was started in 2004 as a business unit of InterCerve, a leading Microsoft hosting services provider, in response to the issues faced by organizations managing large SQL Server enterprises.

SQL Sentry’s first product, Event Manager, gave database administrators an innovative visual interface and robust notification system for quickly isolating and resolving schedule-related performance problems. SQL Sentry has continued to expand their ground-breaking suite of tools, with the introduction of Performance Advisor for SQL Server in 2008, Performance Advisor for Analysis Services in 2009, Plan Explorer in 2010, Event Manager for SharePoint in 2011, and Fragmentation Manager and Performance Advisor for Windows in 2012.

Headquartered in Huntersville, North Carolina, SQL Sentry products are sold and supported directly and through authorized resellers and partners.

We have been a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner for over 10 years, and our customer survey results say it better than we ever could. Our marks across the board are consistently higher than other Microsoft partners. All customers fell into the "Champion" quadrant, ranking us amongst the top Microsoft ISVs in the world.
