RockSolid Cloud Services Edition is designed to allow for the standardization of monitoring, automated management, automated performance optimization and automated issue resolution across diverse environments that may be made up of thousands of SQL Server instances and tens of thousands of SQL Server databases.
The focus of the product is to significantly reduce operational costs associated with managing very large numbers of instances and databases through the automation of all routine DBA management tasks including performance optimization. The policy driven framework also allows for provision of very high service levels guarantees to made to end customers with little associated overhead on the service provider in doing so.

The same interface when logged in to by the service provider allows the management of their SQL Server environment as a whole in a consolidated view.
