Database monitoring is useless unless your monitoring system can seamlessly raise intelligent alerts to dispatch the optimum level of response. That’s why Datavail, the largest pure-play database services company in North America, developed Datavail Delta, a tool built to monitor a wide variety of OS and Database parameters. Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2008R2 and 2012 and SQL Server versions 2000, 2005, 2008, 2008R2 and 2012 are compatible with Delta.

Delta supports MS MS SQL Server installations to provide robust server and database monitoring. The objective of the Delta monitoring tool is to provide a lightweight service that runs on each client server and communicates the status of the environment to the Datavail Data Center. Delta monitors a myriad of possible issues and reports to Datavail’s ticketing system, where the client and Datavail’s dedicated DBAs are alerted and work the ticket until the issues are resolved.
