SentryOne improves quality of life for Microsoft data professionals and their customers

Our Story:

We got tired of waiting for a solution—so we made our own.

Our first days were defined by a persistent need to find a balance between managing and monitoring SQL Server within our hosting platform and the desire to not be on call 24/7. We tried every software tool on the market, yet none of them could deliver truly actionable information for easy performance monitoring and analysis.

So, in 2004, we released our first product, SQL Sentry Event Manager. It was a solution that grew out of our Microsoft-focused hosting business and it provided intuitive visualization and management of server jobs. Performance Advisor followed in 2008 to address performance monitoring and tuning. Over time we introduced eight other solutions and multiple enhancements to the existing line-up of products and also added groundbreaking monitoring for cloud, physical and virtual systems. In 2016 SentryOne (S1) became our new unified brand and platform under which all products live.

In 2017 SentryOne increased its international presence by creating a formal Global Partner Network and in early 2018 we opened our first international office in Dublin: SentryOne EMEA.

In April of 2018, SentryOne acquired Pragmatic Works Software, making us a comprehensive platform provider for the Microsoft Data Platform.

In October 2020, SentryOne joined the SolarWinds family, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software. The SentryOne offering complements and extends the on-premises and cloud-native database management products SolarWinds has to serve the needs of organizations with Microsoft and Microsoft Azure environments.

From our very beginning, we have felt our success stems from our people: the industry’s best SQL Server and Microsoft Data Platform experts working alongside the most compassionate and driven customer engagement teams in the business. Our people partner with our customers to create value and assure success.
