From safely making a change in development to monitoring its impact in production, Redgate is with you every step of the way
Reduce time spent provisioning copies of production databases and ensure your developers always have access to realistic isolated environments. Being able to quickly provision database copies, whilst using minimal disk space, enables your team to develop, test and fix code faster and provides opportunities to experiment.
“By having developers write, test and run their own code in a production-like environment, the majority of the work to successfully integrate our codes and environments happens during our daily work, instead of at the end of the release.”
Avoid your team wasting valuable time reformatting code and merging each other’s database changes with standardized SQL formatting and database version control. You get a single version of truth to work from, an audit trail of database changes and the foundation of an automated build process.
“The productivity of the team has improved dramatically….We can spend the extra time we've gained developing new features."
Prevent delays due to integration issues and keep your development team in sync with database continuous integration. By triggering an automated build when you check database changes into source control, you get early feedback on whether changes can be successfully built and have a stable current build consistently available.
"Code goes from months to deploy, to days... When we want to bring out new functionality for the customer, we can do it really quick. That's the real benefit."
Reduce the risk of introducing bugs and defects further downstream by testing your work with realistic data and server environments. Automating your testing as part of a CI process helps developers discover mistakes quickly, enables faster and less costly fixes and provides opportunities for continuous learning and improvement.
“Less bugs for customers, less downtime, more stable and reliable software."
Save time by creating a build package that can be automatically promoted through server environments. Create schema documentation for each build and configure settings for different environments. You get a repeatable process and the knowledge that each release to production has been thoroughly tested by previous deployments.
“Now it literally takes a few clicks to deploy to an environment”
Respond quicker to business or customer needs by enabling your team to deliver smaller, less risky deployments, with manual review steps where needed. By automating change management tasks like creating deployment scripts, your deployment process becomes more safe and transparent and your team is freed up for more valuable work.
“By automating deployments, we have a proven solution that works all the time. That’s got rid of a lot of the quality issues with the deployment process and created a more lean environment where developers can focus on developing.”
Monitor your databases as they move through environments and learn more about the performance impact of changes as they’re introduced. Your teams get a shared understanding of the state of databases that are being deployed against, gain more knowledge of the impact changes have on SQL Server performance and can better collaborate.
“We have the information we need to make performance improvements. Perhaps more importantly, it also alerts us to any problems, so we can address them before they become issues for users.”
Ensure your business critical data is safe by always backing up your SQL Server databases. Protect against accidental loss of user data, database corruption or hardware failures. By managing, compressing and encrypting backups from a centralized console, you save time as well as disk space, and can be safe in the knowledge you’ll be able to recover your data.
“We wanted to standardize our backup regime… Consistency is a good thing when you’re managing lots of servers.”
