Idera Announces SQL defrag manager 30

Popular Tool Allows DBAs to Put Database Defragmentation on Autopilot

HOUSTON – AUGUST 30, 2011 – Idera, a leading provider of solutions for Microsoft SQL Server management, today announced SQL defrag manager™ v3.0.  SQL defrag manager 3.0 makes it easier to improve SQL Server performance by automating and optimizing index defragmentation processes. The new version includes index fill factor management, customizable update stats, and the ability to identify, recognize and rebuild partitioned indexes.

“The new index fill factor feature in SQL defrag manager has saved me time because I can quickly modify those parameters and visualize the history,” said Darlene Stephens, Database Administrator (DBA) at WaterOne, a Kansas water district serving more than 400,000 customers. “Also, the ability to view and independently reorganize or rebuild partitioned indexes in SQL defrag manager 3.0 has made it even easier to improve the performance of my SQL Servers.”

One of the key causes of SQL Server performance issues is index fragmentation. SQL defrag manager ensures that indexes are defragmented, which helps SQL Server applications run faster and frees DBAs to perform other tasks.

“When SQL Server indexes become fragmented, database performance can quickly degrade and manually defragmenting can be extremely time consuming and tedious,” said Heather Sullivan, Director of SQL Server Products at Idera. “SQL defrag manager 3.0 provides DBAs with a defragmentation autopilot for the entire SQL Server enterprise.”

Pricing and Availability
Idera’s SQL defrag manager 3.0 is available today and is priced at $1,195 per instance.
