Confio Software's Ignite 8 for Microsoft SQL Server Experiences Record Growth

BOULDER, Colo. Nov. 9, 2010
– Confio™ Software today announced that IgniteTM for Microsoft SQL Server, the company's award-winning database performance analysis tool designed specifically for SQL Server DBAs, has experienced record growth of nearly 400 percent since early 2009. Confio attributes this growth in part to the launch of Ignite 8 for SQL Server in early 2010 and its ongoing commitment to the SQL Server community.

“The Microsoft SQL Server DBA community has responded well to Ignite 8, as evidenced by the enthusiasm and positive feedback we receive at monthly SQL Server user groups and the dozens of SQL Saturday events we sponsor throughout the year,” said Don Bergal, COO of Confio Software. "We have been rewarded with rapidly escalating use of our product, and we are proud to support the SQL Server community in return."

Ignite 8 for Microsoft SQL Server helps DBAs, developers and DBA managers identify, analyze, and resolve the most complex and costly performance problems affecting applications and users depending on Microsoft SQL Server. Ignite 8 goes beyond basic server health metrics to build a complete SQL Server performance picture using response-time analysis and historical trend analysis.

“Since implementing Ignite 8 for Microsoft SQL Server, we now have both real-time analysis of our database response time as well as server health statistics,” said Rodney Dauphin, Regional IT Manager at Infor. “By having this multi-layered approach we can instantly analyze the wait-times so we can locate and fix virtually any bottleneck in the system.”

SQL Server DBAs, developers and database managers interested in learning more about Ignite 8 for SQL Server are encouraged to visit Confio Software's booth (#402) at PASS Summit 2010, Nov. 8-11 at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center. Confio will be 'turning up the heat' on SQL Server performance with a Char-Broil® Red® infrared grill grand prize giveaway and other prizes for winners of Confio’s own Cornhole game (everyone's favorite BBQ game).
