SentryOne Announces Partnership with 2018 Microsoft Ireland Country Partner of the Year Codec

US-based Data DevOps and Database Performance Monitoring software provider SentryOne announced Microsoft Ireland’s 2018 Country Partner of the Year, Codec, has joined the SentryOne Global Partner Network.

The SentryOne platform helps data professionals maximise performance across the entire database lifecycle—from development through to production—on the Microsoft Data Platform, including SQL Server and Azure SQL Database.

 “We are building out our Global Partner Network and Codec’s recognised expertise throughout the entire Microsoft product set and Azure makes them an ideal partner,” says Nick Harshbarger, SentryOne SVP of Strategic Alliances and Channels. “The combination of our industry-leading platform and Codec’s customer-focused services offers the Irish market a powerful opportunity to fully leverage the power of the Microsoft Data Platform.”

Ireland-based Codec is a full-stack IT solutions consultancy that uses their in-depth Microsoft product and technology knowledge to help customers maximise the benefits of the changing technology landscape with a focus on assisting with migrations to the cloud.

“Our customers rely on the Microsoft Data Platform to support key business operations, and we recognise the importance of detailed monitoring to ensure these systems are running at peak efficiency and potential business-critical issues are avoided,” says Richard Nolan, Codec’s Head of Digital Transformation. “We look forward to working with SentryOne to ensure our customers are fully equipped to efficiently move into the cloud and maintain operational effectiveness once that migration has occurred.”

SentryOne opened their EMEA headquarters in Dublin City Centre in May 2018. This office is the base for the expansion of the SentryOne Global Partner Network in Ireland and the wider EMEA region.

With the announcement of this partnership, Codec, in conjunction with Microsoft, is pleased to mark this partnership with an event focused on Data Estate Modernisation, hosted in the Microsoft offices in Dublin on 12 February. Douglas McDowell, Chief Strategy Officer for SentryOne and 10-year recipient of the Microsoft Data Platform MVP award, will discuss moving your SQL Server workloads to Azure. To register for this event, click here.
