Redgate delivers "that syncing feeling" with launch of Data Compare for Oracle

Cambridge, UK, December 15, 2010 – Fast and painless database deployment in Oracle became a reality today with the launch of Redgate's Data Compare for Oracle.

The new tool compares database table contents, highlights differences, generates SQL scripts to match the tables up, and automatically aligns them if desired.

"After making database changes, the last thing you want is to spend hours deploying them," says Tom Harris, head of Redgate's Oracle division. "With Data Compare, deployment is done automatically in minutes, which is quite a relief – I like to think of it as that syncing feeling."

Stopping the grey

David Hart, senior application developer with T2 Systems, is already a fan.

"We plan to integrate Data Compare for Oracle in our nightly builds. At the moment, all of our data-related changes have to be scripted manually, which is error-prone and not very productive."

"With Data Compare for Oracle, we can easily compare the data in two different database builds and generate the synchronization script. It's going save at least an hour of development time each week – and stop me from going grey so quickly!"

Part of full deployment suite

Although the tool is available by itself, Oracle developers looking for a smoother way to deploy entire databases can pick it up as part of Redgate's Deployment Suite for Oracle, which combines Data Compare with its acclaimed sibling, Schema Compare for Oracle.

Schema Compare provides similar functionality for database structure, so together the pair offer complete database synchronization in one seamless process.

"Devs are going to find our Deployment Suite a breath of fresh air," Harris says. "The tools handle the entire deployment process in a few clicks, and because usability has been our concern throughout, it takes just seconds to get going."

Try it for yourself

More information on Data Compare for Oracle and the Deployment Suite for Oracle is available from Redgate's website. Thirty-day free trials of both are also available.
