Idera Unveils New SQL Server Suites
Idera Inc. announced new suites for managing SQL Servers, providing performance monitoring, automated maintenance, security features and more.
Known for its performance monitoring solutions, the Houston-based company renamed its primary management suite from SQL Suite to SQL Management Suite and launched three new software packages for specific functionalities.
"These suites combine top Idera products and are designed to help DBAs tackle complementary tasks more effectively as part of their daily job maintaining SQL Servers," the company said in a blog post this week.
The three new offerings are SQL Performance Suite, SQL Maintenance Suite and SQL Security Suite.
The flagship SQL Management Suite includes many of the tools found in the other packages for performance monitoring, alerting and diagnostics; compliance management for monitoring, auditing and alerting of activity and changes to data; security and permissions management; backup and restoration of SQL data; and defragmentation.
Some of the other suites add tools for their specific functionality -- for example, a business intelligence (BI) manager for tracking the health of SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS), SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) and SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS).
"Our customers are responsible for maintaining and managing complex SQL environments and we listen to them to ensure our products consistently meet their performance, compliance and administrative needs," said CEO Randy Jacobs. "With most customers typically purchasing more than one product, we developed the new SQL Suites to improve the buying process and increase solution value for DBAs."
Idera, which offers a 14-day trial of its suites, didn't provide pricing information.
