    Atera

    For me, Atera has been a great tool that I added to my arsenal. I wanted something where I could manage my clients' Windows updates. As I used the software, I began to realize all of the various things Atera could do. Now it is a critical component of my business and I would not be able to properly function without it.

    Redgate SQL Monitor

    Redgate SQL Monitor is well suited for database administrators or companies who implement software that relies on SQL servers. It will help them test new changes and ensure this will not impact the performance of their software. It is a last resort for MSPs to use to get to the bottom of an ongoing performance issue with their SQL server.

    Pros

    Atera

    • Easy to deploy, both in general or to a specific customer.
    • Remote management tools that are in line with every other major solution out there.
    • Real-time alerts that allow for easy monitoring of vital systems.
    • Configurable threshholds on alerts so the system can be tuned to only notify when there is a problem according to certain metrics.

    Redgate SQL Monitor

    • It will tell you if your server is under attack.
    • You can quickly see how your server is performing and which queries are taking the longest
    • I gives you the feeling that you are in control of your database, that you know what is going on for when they users ring up and tell you that the server is slow
    Doug Thompson | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Atera

    • Ticket automation, more options to specific cases or conditions, and change client assigned to ticket, or be able to assign a ticket for the client without hassle of emailing them back or having to create a fake contact.
    • Include notes for client that are not file attachments, maybe integration with a cloud service like Google Docs or OneDrive.
    • Integration with other remote access tools would be helpful.

    Redgate SQL Monitor

    • Incremental releases can be buggy
    • Isn't the best for pinpointing performance issues
    • Web interface can be sluggish

    As of right now, we have found nothing that can offer as many features as Atera does along with the affordability. They are doing monthly releases each month and not just making small changes (shared scripting library, chocolatey support, Install packages, Splashtop SOS support, Scheduled tickets to name a few). The uptimes are great and accessibility to the dashboard has yet to be limited. We are a happy customer and bordering on fanboy status now

    Atera support provides answers to my questions lightning fast. They have never left me feeling like I'm out there on my own. I can ask questions by email, or by chat, or by opening a ticket with them and they are always on it quickly. They also have a forum where other Atera users can help you if you need it, and you can also add feature requests via the forum.

    Alternatives Considered

    Atera

    We had tried Syncro, Naverisk, Pulseway - dollar for dollar stack for stack, Atera blew them out of the water. Atera is easy to use, easy to manage, has flourishing facebook and reddit groups for support and they update their knowledge bases daily. Their communication and support has been bar none.

    Redgate SQL Monitor

    Redgate SQL Monitor is a lot cheaper than SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer. I prefer the SolarWinds' design and that it offers integration with other SolarWinds products we already use. SolarWinds supports more than SQL servers (Oracle, MySQL, Maria DB, IBM DB2) and the analysis seems to be much better. The Spiceworks SQL Server monitoring is a free tool and is ideal for monitoring small business SQL instances.

    Return on Investment

    Atera

    • The lack of cost per unit is a great asset. Our team consists of two members who really use the product, and the cost being per member means we can have hundreds of machines and still only pay for two users.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Redgate SQL Monitor

    • The quality of the product and give a negative investment impression, on the plus side when it does work it is a god send.
    • Day to day tasks as made simpler, and a feeling of security of realised. Just don't change anything.
