IT management company SolarWinds has announced it is acquiring SentryOne. SentryOne’s portfolio includes solutions for performance monitoring and DataOps on SQL Server, Azure SQL Database, and the Microsoft Data Platform.

The addition of SentryOne will complement SolarWinds’ existing on-premises and cloud-native database management offerings. It will also amplify and extend the level of support that SolarWinds can offer for Microsoft and Microsoft Azure environments. 

“For over 20 years, SolarWinds has been committed to ensuring that we bring to market a wide range of products designed to help IT pros solve the toughest IT infrastructure management challenges. As applications and data continue to grow in complexity and volume, database management has become a critical function to businesses of all sizes and types,” said Kevin B. Thompson, chief executive officer for SolarWinds. “We believe the explosion of business-critical applications, and their reliance on peak database performance, presents an opportunity for SolarWinds to continue to expand our support for IT organizations.”

According to Thompson, databases are critical to application performance, from application developers that fuel their apps with data to business leaders that rely on insights to power their organization. 

“We believe SentryOne’s powerful, market-leading database performance management offerings give us another compelling product to enhance our ability to serve IT professionals, particularly those who manage Microsoft environments,” Thompson said. “We believe the combination of SolarWinds and SentryOne will enable us to serve the entire spectrum of databases and related performance management challenges in a hybrid IT environment, from small businesses to the Fortune 500.”
