SolarWinds makes its DBA xPress tool free for all users

DBA xPress simplifies DataOps and Microsoft SQL Server cloud migrations

SolarWinds has announced that its DBA xPress solution is now free for all users. 

In addition to automating data and schema comparisons, DBA xPress simplifies Microsoft SQL Server cloud migrations. 

With its built-in SQL capabilities, DBA xPress lets data analysts assess dependencies and connections between tables, users, and functions, among other database parameters.

“As digital transformation continues to accelerate across industries, we’re seeing more businesses start to prioritize their move to the cloud. But as teams—especially database managers—start to break down cloud migration requirements, it quickly becomes apparent how time-consuming and costly it can be,” explained Rohini Kasturi, chief product officer at SolarWinds.

Kasturi continued, “To succeed in migrating from one environment to another, teams need to optimize their data to maximize the performance of cloud-hosted databases and adopt solutions that enable DataOps practices to drive efficiency and productivity. We’re hoping to kickstart and simplify this optimization process for DBAs, DevOps teams, tech pros, and business leaders alike by offering DBA xPress for free.”

Object Browser, which is available within DBA xPress, lets users explore and filter all objects within a schema, including tables and primary key constraints. With Data Surf, analysts can generate diagrams of parent and child tables, zoom in and out, customize table nodes, and more. The Data Space Analyzer offers insights into available database disk space.

Additionally, users can automate schema and data synchronization via the command-line interface (CLI). Businesses can also perform scheduled data comparisons between production and development environments.

“As more organizations seek the benefits of DataOps strategies, it’ll be imperative in the near term to deliver value through data. DBA xPress will help tech pros tackle this head-on—for free—and help them move one step closer to implementing a successful DataOps strategy,” added SolarWinds.
