SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer Database Performance Monitor: Better Together

On December 11, 2019 we announced the acquisition of VividCortex, which specializes in SaaS-delivered database performance management. VividCortex focuses on cloud-native applications along with open-source databases such as PostgreSQL and NoSQL databases like MongoDB. The customer base for VividCortex reads like a who’s who of leading SaaS and online commerce including Shopify, DraftKings, and Okta.

This week we launched SolarWindsRegistered Database Performance Monitor (DPM)—new name, same great technology.

For those of you who are customers of Database Performance Analyzer (DPA), the past twelve months have seen three major product releases introducing anomaly detection powered by machine learning, tuning advisors, and a new RESTful management API, among many other new features.

Bringing DPM into the fold allows SolarWinds to double down on the important database performance management market. With DPA, we helped define the market by focusing on wait-time analysis while DPM provides a simple, yet powerful SaaS-based dashboard approach to database performance management with before-and-after comparisons and comprehensive database health monitoring.

Now that we have these market-leading products under the same roof, we plan to aggressively deliver new features and drive innovation in both products, and don’t be surprised if you see features from one product popping up in the other.

No matter which product you have, the addition of DPM to the SolarWinds family is a win for all our customers. For DPA customers, stay tuned to “What We’re Working on for DPA” in 2020 as we move forward with exciting product releases. We’ll be adding a “What We’re Working on for DPM” soon.

As the product leader for both products, I’ve never been more excited. We’ll continue to share with you our progress as we move into 2020. I hope you feel the same as I do with VividCortex—now Database Performance Monitor—in the SolarWinds database performance management family.
