Redgate Software Adds Updates to Its Database Monitoring Capabilities

Redgate Software, the provider of end-to-end database DevOps, announced that its SQL Server database monitoring tool, SQL Monitor, now supports Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL as well as PostgreSQL on-premises.

According to the company, the release enables enterprises to move beyond the built-in but limited monitoring capability of Amazon Aurora and provides a rich and comprehensive set of alerts, performance metrics, statistics, and instantly accessible advice.

Using SQL Monitor, they can view the status of their PostgreSQL servers, databases, and instances whether on-premises or in the cloud from a central dashboard.

As part of Redgate’s mission to support database management across the DevOps lifecycle on any database, any platform, anywhere, the added support for PostgreSQL is the latest step to help DBAs who are increasingly expected to work across multiple databases, according to the company.

The latest release supporting Amazon Aurora gives enterprises the option to manage and monitor their database estate in the way that best suits their business. For those with hybrid estates hosted both on-premises and in the cloud, they can be confident every database, server and instance is being monitored in the same way, according to Redgate.

For those who prefer to take a cloud-first approach and avoid the capex costs involved with hosting their own infrastructures, they can be reassured SQL Monitor now supports different cloud environments available for different use cases.

When ease of manageability, the predictive costs of consistent workloads and automated backups are required, for example, Amazon RDS is a good option. For cloud-heavy organizations with high data usage, the high performance, massive scalability, and availability for large numbers of users and big volumes of data that Amazon Aurora offers may be a better option.

As a result, DBAs and other data professionals who are more familiar with SQL Server can get a clear and comprehensive picture of the health and state of their PostgreSQL databases, giving them added confidence that they can manage them alongside their existing SQL Server estate.
