Toad Edge

Your next-gen toolset for open source relational database environments.
Introducing Toad Edge 01:51

Simple database development tool for MySQL and PostgreSQL environments.

If yours is one of the majority of organizations migrating your existing commercial database to open source, such as MySQL or PostgreSQL, or if you’re building new in-house applications on open source database management systems (OSDBMS), then you know that commercial tooling for these databases falls short. What if you could save money by implementing OSDBMS and ramp up quickly by working with a familiar toolset?

You can with Toad Edge®. It’s a lightweight, reliable desktop toolset that simplifies development and management tasks for open source databases. Using Toad for MySQL and PostgreSQL management makes it easier to master new database platforms quickly. If you’re taking on MariaDB, Amazon Redshift or EDB Postgres Advanced Server, Toad Edge will simplify your work on those platforms as well. Toad Edge supports coding, editing, schema compare and sync and DevOps CI processes, so you can manage your open source databases easily and confidently.

We have SQL Developer from Oracle, which is free, but our people prefer to use Toad. A lot of times, SQL Developer didn't provide enough functionality.
