Quest Software, a global systems management, data protection and security software provider, announced the availability of Spotlight Cloud in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store that provides applications and services for use on Microsoft Azure. Database Administrators and developers that use Azure can now directly access and take advantage of Spotlight Cloud to proactively resolve database performance issues, optimize performance, and make the best provisioning choices to ensure high database performance.
“We’re harnessing the power of the cloud to monitor both on premise and cloud-based databases. Now, instead of having to buy hardware infrastructure, organizations have the choice to subscribe in the cloud,” said Patrick O’Keeffe, VP of Engineering of Quest Software. “With Spotlight Cloud, DBAs and developers have anytime, anywhere access to quickly identify performance degradation and isolate the cause of a performance issue. We are on a fast-track to having Spotlight Cloud be the go-to tool for monitoring Database as a Service (DBaaS) on Azure. The availability of Spotlight Cloud in the Azure Marketplace is the first step in making that happen.”
Spotlight Cloud provides 24/7 performance monitoring, instant diagnostics, and powerful tuning to ensure consistent performance and high availability across Microsoft SQL Server database environments. With Spotlight Cloud availability in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, organizations can now take advantage of the scalability, high availability, and security of the Azure Marketplace, with streamlined deployment and management.
