Latest builds of the SentryOne platform and Plan Explorer, as well as updated blog posts, downloads, and change lists.
SentryOne 19.1.1 simplifies installing SentryOne release updates, saving time and resources especially for enterprises with hundreds of SQL Servers.
John Martin announces the latest release of the SentryOne platform, which includes support for Azure SQL Database Managed Instance.
Justin Randall shows off some the exciting new functionality in SQL Sentry v8.3.
Greg Gonzalez walks through two exciting new features in SQL Sentry v8.2: Adaptive UIs and Fast Query Capture.
Designing this feature proved to be somewhat of a challenge due to the diversity of opinions on this topic.
SQL Sentry v8 will have a system requirements change, specifically with regard to the operating system version used for both the Monitoring Service and the SQL Sentry Client. The reason for this is that we have decided to target .NET 4.5 instead of .NET 4.0. In this post I wanted to share some of the reasons for doing so.
It's tempting to insert some clever reference to everyone's favorite vegetable juice medley here, but I will refrain, for fear of diminishing what is perhaps the most significant SQL Sentry release to date!

Our ultimate objective with this release of SQL Sentry Performance Advisor was to increase visibility and manageability around AlwaysOn in dramatic fashion, thereby enabling it to reach its full potential. This new functionality is so powerful, some of our clients are even using it for resource management across commodity servers, something I'm not sure the AlwaysOn creators ever envisioned. I'll delve into that in a future post, but for now, I wanted to give some insight into these features.
When we released SQL Sentry v7.2 with dedicated Windows monitoring last October, we were already hard at work on the AlwaysOn-oriented features that would become v7.5.
The new version of Plan Explorer PRO 2.5 is focused on making these big plans easier to manage, and it does so using a variety of techniques that you have been asking for, which I will cover below.
When it comes to SQL Sentry, we love for you to upgrade for your benefit and ours, and we really work hard to make it easy to do so. So here are some great reasons to upgrade your SQL Sentry environment to the most recent release just as soon as you are able to.

Since releasing SQL Sentry v7 with Fragmentation Manager in May, we've been hard at work on v7.2.
It's hard to believe that we released the first version of Plan Explorer almost two years ago! The acceptance it has seen by the SQL Server community during that time has been amazing, and tremendously gratifying for all of us here at SQL Sentry.
