Speedy Cash Selects Confio Software For SQL Server and VMware Database Performance Improvement
BOULDER, Colo. - Dec. 7, 2011 - Today Confio™ Software, the makers of the award-winning Ignite performance analysis software tool, was selected by Speedy Cash® for a comprehensive SQL Server and virtual server performance management solution. With more than 200 stores in the U.S., Canada and the UK, as well as an international online presence, Speedy Cash is one of the largest providers of short-term loans and financial services in the world.
Using Confio's Ignite for SQL Server as well as IgniteVM for SQL Server has helped Speedy Cash improve database query performance of several transactional and analytical applications critical to its business. Those SQL Server applications - which run on both physical and virtual databases - include customers' application processing, payment processing, mailing list developments and analytical reporting.
"Aside from enabling us to easily determine which queries were having issues, the greatest benefit of Ignite is that we can isolate different variables, such as users, machines and applications," said Randall Neth, director of database administration for Speedy Cash and SQL 2008 Microsoft Certified Master (MCM). "Because our applications contain such vast amounts of data, having the ability to slice and dice a query to determine the root cause of performance issues is a significant advantage."
Ignite helps DBAs, developers and DBA managers identify, analyze, and resolve the most complex and costly performance problems affecting applications and users. Ignite goes beyond basic server health metrics to build a complete server performance picture using response-time analysis and historical trend analysis. Ignite is available for SQL Server, Oracle, VMware, Sybase and DB2 environments.
"Speedy Cash has differentiated itself on customer service, which means that it is unacceptable for technology issues to get in the way of its ability to serve a customer through quick payment processing or application approval, " said Mark Tumminello, regional account manager for Confio. "By implementing Ignite, Speedy Cash has reassurance that if any business application relying on database functionality is performing poorly, it can quickly and easily trouble-shoot the issue before it hinders its customers' experiences."
