eNews, February 2015 - The New Support Center

February is the season for sending Valentine’s Day cards and sweet nothings.

eNews, January 2015 - Travel Schedule and Version 8.3

For many of us, January is a month of tying up the loose ends from the previous year and making resolutions to do better in the coming year. One of our resolutions for 2015 is to get out into the community more often to see you at more community events. I hope you’ll make an effort to come out and see us. We love to get your feedback!

Troubleshooting SQL Server Wait Stats

eNews, November 2014 - Release of SQL Sentry v8.2

SQL Sentry Recognized For Unparalleled Support of the SQL Server Community With Prestigious Third MVP Award. You might look at the headline and think “Of course, SQL Sentry supports the SQL Server community. That’s where they make all their money.” However, it really is much more than monetization with us, which I’ll explain in a moment. But first I’m proud to announce that Greg Gonzalez, our CEO, was recently awarded Microsoft’s prestigious Most Valuable Professional Award (MVP) for his support of the SQL Server community.
