Quest Software launches Foglight enhancements

Quest Software has launched Foglight 6.1, a monitoring and optimization platform for the hybrid enterprise. Foglight enables businesses to confidently manage their IT infrastructure and databases by providing them with the tools for deep-dive database workload optimization and cloud cost management.


Available now, Foglight 6.1 further strengthens users’ ability to spot and diagnose issues in near-real time, while also reducing operational costs and alert fatigue for IT teams. It is a key solution forming part of Quest’s Data Empowerment portfolio, which aims to address data operations, data protection and data governance for enterprises. With Quest, companies find, understand and use relevant enterprise data assets to make faster, smarter decisions.


“As DevOps teams create, deploy and update enterprise applications, organizations must ensure that application performance does not fall through the cracks,” said Venkat Rajaji, Vice President of Product Management for Quest ISM. “Nearly 8 in 10 IT decision-makers say their enterprises have maintained or increased in complexity, underscoring the need to simplify ITOps and reduce noise for technical teams. This update will enable our customers to improve application performance, centralize efficient resource allocation in the cloud and reduce security risk across their entire organization.”
