About SQL Sentry

We deliver premier software solutions for monitoring and optimizing data performance in 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 fall into the "Champion" quadrant, ranking us amongst the top Microsoft ISVs in the world.

Optimizing SQL Server Performance Everywhere

We ask, listen, and respond in a timely manner.

Success — It's really about the people

Sure it's also about technology and award-winning software, but you can't achieve success without great people. We are always looking to add talented, enthusiastic people to our teams.

Great Culture and Perks

We take our jobs seriously:

We are passionate about our work and getting the job done right. We have daily stand-up meetings and lots of teamwork. We also take time to relax and have fun. We have impromptu celebrations for product updates and sales achievements. We take company outings and host lunch-and-learn sessions. There are ongoing Xbox tournaments waging during lunch breaks and after hours.

It's not uncommon to have a dozen coworkers gathered around on a Friday evening discussing the current brews on tap or how they have proudly solved something during the past week. We enjoy our work and we enjoy working here. Did we mention we have a Pub?

We also like to take care of our people:

  • Competitive salaries and unmatched benefits.
  • Flexible schedules and generous vacation allowance.
  • Opportunities to attend or speak at trade shows and conferences.
  • Subsidized gym memberships.
  • A relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
  • Great office space, walking distance to restaurants and shopping.
  • Catered hot lunches on Fridays.
  • Video games on a 120" projection screen with killer audio.
  • A great group of dedicated teammates.
  • The SQL Sentry Pub – With 2 rotating local beers on tap!
