IDERA SQL Virtual Database Review

Use of SQL login and server/instance IP addresses to connect to servers that are not in Active Directory domains


What is our primary use case?

Used to create high speed and highly compressed backups for restore to/from production to development or development to production environments.

How has it helped my organization?

The compression matches, or sometimes exceeds, that of native tools, which are key in an environment where storage limitations are a pervasive issue.

What is most valuable?

Use of SQL login and server/instance IP addresses to connect to servers that are not in Active Directory domains.

What needs improvement?

Product licensing can be a problem. The license on more than one Idera product listed itself as expired, although there was no such expiration. Required an assist from Idera Engineer to correct the problem.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
