Testimonials

Our company grows quickly. We have got plans to improve monitoring our SQL infrastructure. At first I tested ApexSQL Monitor for our one important instance and I would like to use this for production. In future we need to choose monitoring software for our others instances (about 50 servers). I will recommend ApexSQL because joins simplicity and powerful capabilities. I'm surprised how much time we can save!

I absolutely love ApexSQL Monitor. It is an extremely effective and reliable source for monitoring our environments. Configuration is a breeze and the interface is concise and quickly points out areas of concern. The Alerting feature makes it easy to react to system issues as well as document the process done to fix them. I have used numerous tools that are out on the market and this is hands down my favorite.

Gary Fry

Cox Industries, Inc.

With the help of the ApexSQL Monitor tool, we were able to pinpoint issues with our database and server within a few hours of setup. Easy, with a few steps, to setup and with well-presented information in a way that you do not need to be a DBA to have a good source of information from your MSSQL Databases and servers.
