    What Our Customers Say

    As seen in

    Spotlight Cloud gives us detailed visibility across all of our database servers without the cost and maintenance overhead of hosting our own monitoring infrastructure.

    Jim G

    Veson Nautical, Site Reliability Engineer

    We looked at a lot of competitive monitoring products, Spotlight Cloud was simply the best.

    Julius H

    Senior Database Administrator at The Jacksonville Laboratory

    We chose Spotlight Cloud because we found on-premise monitoring tools costly and needy and liked the fact it’s hosted, so our overhead is small and we get answers to problems quickly.

    Daniel B

    Lead Software Engineer at Core-Logix

    The color-coded dashboard provides our techs with at-a-glance status of over 120 SQL servers and the drill downs allow technicians to save time by giving them exactly the information they need to solve any issues that may come up.

    The problem is...


    Too many alarms and too little insight

    When your servers fail or slow down, every second counts. Most monitoring systems only tell you when a metric has breached a threshold.

    What if you could...


    Start solving issues in seconds

    What if your performance monitoring did more than just tell you there is a problem and it actually started the diagnostics process for you?

    The problem is...


    The same issue occurs over and over again?

    There's no easier way to lose credibility than to declare an issue resolved, only to see it re-occur again. Most solutions focus on the symptom.

    What if you could...

    Workload Analyzer

    Go beyond the symptom to find the cure?
