Server Backup Free, SQL backup status reporter and SQL permissions extractor Free Tools Bring Productivity, Insight and Security to the Management of Server Sprawl
HOUSTON – February 14, 2013 – Idera, a leading provider of application and server management solutions, today announced the availability of three new free tools for both SQL Server DBAs and IT administrators. Idera’s Server Backup Free delivers a free copy of their leading high performance server backup product. Idera’s SQL backup status reporter and SQL permissions extractor allows DBAs to quickly and easily ensure that databases have been backed up and copy permissions across servers. All of these tools are designed to help administrators better manage the growing number of servers in the enterprise.
The new Server Backup Free is a full-featured copy of Idera’s Server Backup Enterprise, but for a single server. Now IT departments can experience fast disk-based backup for Windows and Linux servers as well as VMware, Xen and Hyper-V without a commitment. For companies with growing server environments, Server Backup Enterprise delivers high performance at a price point that can scale to backup your servers without breaking the bank. Server Backup Free features include:
- Backup physical and virtual servers in minutes, not hours
- Backup to any disk-based storage – second hard disk, NAS, SAN, etc.
- Restore files in seconds with Disk Safe technology
- Download and go in minutes with easy installation
The popular SQL backup status reporter allows DBAs to view a graphical representation of backups across their SQL Server environment. This tool is critical to knowing whether a working backup is available when needed. Idera’s SQL safe then goes further to help companies feel confident with the consistent running of the fastest and most compressed backups. SQL backup status reporter features include:
- Quickly identify databases that have not had backups
- View backup history including the backup date and type
- Simplified grid view for easy sorting and navigation
- Identify full and differential backups for one or many databases
The new SQL permissions extractor takes the pain out of permissions porting and security by enabling DBAs to easily copy and reassign permissions from one server to another without having to write a single line of script. SQL permissions extractor ensures consistency and security. Idera’s SQL secure completes the process and allows you to harden security with pre-defined and customizable policy templates to ensure the SQL Server environment is safe. SQL permissions extractor features include:
- Generate T-SQL scripts for copying of user permissions to another server
- Edit, save, and execute permissions scripts
- Include object level permissions for selected databases
“Idera has made a commitment to providing free tools and solutions that help both IT and database administrators better manage their servers,” said Rick Pleczko, president and CEO, Idera. “It’s our way of paying back the success that the community has helped us achieve.”
