How to compare and synchronize SQL Server schemas with SQL Compare (2:47)
SQL Compare is the industry standard for comparing and deploying SQL Server database schemas quickly and accurately.
71% of the Fortune 100 use SQL Compare to compare SQL Server databases – because it's relentlessly tested, easy to use, creates flawless deployment scripts, and saves time.
I bless the day we bought SQL Compare - it saves me time so often. Must have paid for itself a hundred times over.
Remembering the changes you’ve made to a database, working out what your colleagues have done, and scripting it out for deployment is tricky and time consuming.
SQL Compare makes it fast.
You can explore what’s changed in each database object, down to individual lines of SQL. When you’re ready to deploy, you can create an error-free deployment script in minutes.
SQL Compare scripts dependencies in your database in the right order, to make sure deployment is successful.
It also flags up any issues, such as data loss, before you deploy.
To fix errors in your production database, compare it to a backup, scripts in source control, or a database snapshot. You can deploy single objects to fix the issue fast.
If you need to fix static data, use SQL Data Compare to deploy changes without the need for full database recovery.
SQL Compare fits into the development process you prefer.
You can automate deployments with the command line, run them from the UI, or save a deployment script and run it yourself.
For review and sign-off, you can also export a list of changes in HTML or Excel formats.
“I bless the day we bought SQL Compare - it saves me time so often. Must have paid for itself a hundred times over.”
“SQL Data Compare and SQL Compare are two of the most important tools I have in my development operation. I can be so responsive to end-user requests for new features using the tools to deploy upgrades to my SaaS application (which by the way has 100% uptime for the last 7 consecutive months) because of the excellent work by Redgate.”
“100% like the new look and feel. The product is very easy to use and somehow you managed to incorporate a lot of familiarity with the updated look which I think is spot on. Not enough to cause data professionals to go into a panic but enough for us to be wowed.”
“For the price you pay, you'll save the equivalent time on your next version release.”
“We can create SQL deployment scripts extremely fast and have them ready for a release within minutes of the build being generated. We use SQL Data Compare to sync any system configuration changes, and then we are pretty much ready to go.
Your software is, in a word, awesome. Keep up the great work!”
“SQL Compare has saved us an awful lot of time and code and allowed us to get our version control organised across our 40 data warehouses... Like I said, great product, great value.”
“Just purchased SQL Compare. With the productivity I'll get out of this tool, it's like buying time.”
