August 17, 2017 — Quest Software, a global systems management and security software provider, today announced the availability of Toad Edge™, a new commercial database toolset that makes it easy for development teams and database administrators (DBAs) to develop and manage next-generation open source database environments. With the first release supporting MySQL, Toad Edge saves time, minimizes the MySQL learning curve, and mitigates risks that can be associated with building applications on an open source database platform.
The Database Market is Moving to Open Source
“As our research shows, the adoption of open source DBMS is widespread across the enterprise, and in some cases, outpacing the growth of traditional, non-open source environments,” said Carl Olofson, Research Vice President, IDC.
“One limitation that many of these open source technologies have is the lack of a coherent toolset for development, management, and in some cases migration of their databases,” Olofson continued. “Organizations will need these tools to effectively and holistically develop and maintain their data systems, and ensure a seamless migration process. A smart move would be to choose a commercially -available toolset that delivers the necessary end-to-end solutions to help support their investment in these new platforms.”
Toad Edge Offers Core Database Development Management Functions in an Easy-to-Use Toolset
“My team has worked with and researched a lot of MySQL tools — and the schema compare in Toad Edge, in particular, is the best out there,” said Stefano Giacone, CEO and developer of Pixide, a global photo contest app that allows amateur photographers to showcase and compete with their pictures. “I’m excited about using Toad Edge.”
Key features of the new Toad Edge toolset include:
“Over the last year, we’ve seen an increase in open source databases for new application development as well as extensions to legacy applications – both deemed mission-critical,” said Greg Davoll, executive director of product management and marketing at Quest. “With this new addition to the Toad solutions, we are addressing this need. Toad Edge delivers many of the outstanding productivity-boosting features that we’re known for – making it easier than ever for developers and DBAs to ramp-up and transition to MySQL.”
