We always do our best to explain “Why Foglight,” and there are a number of reasons that customers prefer Foglight to manage their complex database environments.



  • Consistency across platforms - consistent views, data, metrics, reports make understanding overall performance health and troubleshooting easier, and communications and reporting to other teams more effective.


  • Modular architecture - allows customers to expand and use Foglight to manage multiple database platforms as well as to other areas in the application stacks, growing as your needs grow.


  • Strong Database Performance background - Quest has been building and evolving database performance products for well over ten years, driven by database domain experts.


It is these factors that create the foundation that allows organizations to consolidate and standardize database performance and service across environments, ensuring consistent coverage, reduced cost of ownership, and the ability to extend to a full APM solution. Check out the webcast. It’s worth 40 minutes (actually less than that) of your time just to see how easily you can simplify cross-platform database management.
