SolarWinds, a provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, is adding Database Performance Monitor (DPM) to its IT operations management (ITOM) portfolio, enabling customers to manage on-premises, hybrid, and cloud-native databases through a single provider, and with both on-premises and SaaS delivery.
Following the acquisition of VividCortex in December 2019, SolarWinds has extended its database management offerings to include real-time, deep-dive performance monitoring of popular open-source databases with the introduction of DPM.
By offering a dashboard approach to database and system monitoring, DPM gives IT professionals and database administrators visibility into availability and performance, and provides a real-time feedback loop for application developers, DevOps and monitoring engineers to improve database performance. In addition, the new tool features automated alerting for when a system is down, or when thresholds have been triggered.
“As open-source and NoSQL databases grow in popularity and a new generation of applications are built on these platforms, developers, DevOps pros, DBAs, and monitoring engineers need more from their database monitoring solutions,” said Sandy Orlando, senior vice president of products at SolarWinds. “By introducing Database Performance Monitor as part of our ITOM portfolio, we’re giving tech pros the level of analysis and visibility they need to resolve database issues quickly—even in increasingly complex microservices environments. In a world where application performance bottlenecks affect the bottom line, DPM is an easy to use, powerful, and affordable solution for tech pros monitoring hybrid and cloud-native environments.”
The SaaS-based offering complements SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer (DPA), according to the vendor. Together with DPA, Database Performance Monitor gives tech pros the ability to optimize their database performance regardless of where the database is or the type—Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, MongoDB, Redis, Amazon Aurora, and PostgreSQL, all through a single provider.
In addition, Database Performance Monitor works alongside the company’s application performance management (APM) suite of products—Pingdom, AppOptics, and Loggly—which help identify the root cause of the application response time issue. When the problem is within the open-source and NoSQL database, DPM provides the capability to rapidly find and fix the issue.
The combination of these SolarWinds products will give teams the ability to go deep on app traces, infrastructure monitoring, metrics, digital experience monitoring, logs, and network monitoring.
