IDERA SQL Admin Toolset Review

Allows for much easier cross server monitoring and administration

What is our primary use case?

I use this software bundle for managing multiple SQL Server instances. The environment has a large number of SQL Servers serving disparate applications, both internal and external. 

How has it helped my organization?

This product allows for much easier cross server monitoring and administration. When relatively few administrators have to manage more than 50 servers each, a central management server instance is a necessity. 

What is most valuable?

SQL Server Configuration: This allows admins to compare and edit server configurations for one or more SQL servers saving a lot of time when managing large numbers of instances.

What needs improvement?

A set of T-SQL admin snippets might be useful, e.g., code to create users, databases, indexes, etc. It would definitely be welcomed in the bundle. 

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.
