Idera Announces Two New Free Tools for SQL Server DBAs

SQL backup status reporter and SQL fragmentation analyzer enable Proactive Management and Save DBA Time

HOUSTON – December 11, 2012 – Idera, a leading provider of application and server management solutions, today announced the availability of two new free tools that monitor the health of SQL Server databases and maximize DBA’s efforts. Both Idera SQL backup status reporter and SQL fragmentation analyzer allow DBAs to save time and money by reporting on database backup operations and detecting fragmentation levels across the SQL Server environment. DBAs gain clear insight in order to optimize productivity.

Idera’s free SQL backup status reporter displays database backup histories enabling DBAs to easily manage risk by identifying databases which aren’t being backed up or where backups have failed. SQL backup status reporter delivers:

  • Intuitive User Interface: Easy-to-read console displays databases, backup types, backup dates and completion times for each SQL Server database

  • Backup History: View full, differential or transaction log backup history across SQL Servers

  • Highlight Missing Backups: Easily identify databases that have not had a full back up recently

SQL backup status reporter provides an introduction to SQL safe, Idera’s high-performance, enterprise-class, backup and recovery solution.  SQL safe reduces database backup time by up to 50% over native backups and backup disk space requirements by up to 95%.

Idera’s free SQL fragmentation analyzer quickly analyzes index fragmentation levels and enables DBAs to determine where fragmentation is causing performance problems. SQL fragmentation analyzer delivers:

  • Intuitive User Interface: Easy to read console displays index type, fragmentation percentages, size, and fill factors

  • Fragmentation Levels: View fragmentation levels for an entire database or a specific table

  • Customizable Thresholds: Set customized thresholds of acceptable and unacceptable fragmentation levels

SQL fragmentation analyzer provides an introduction to SQL defrag manager, an enterprise-class SQL Server index defragmentation solution that automates the time-consuming process of finding and repairing fragmentation across the entire SQL Server infrastructure.

“SQL backup status reporter and SQL fragmentation analyzer are incredibly useful tools that help DBA’s manage time-consuming everyday tasks,” said Heather Sullivan, Director of SQL Server Products at Idera. “We’re pleased to be able to provide these tools free of charge to the SQL Server community.”
