dbForge Data Compare for MySQL

Data Compare covers two main use cases for us:
1) Keep data in sync between our development, test, and staging environments. When a full database import isn't practical, we will use Data Compare to sync data for key tables. We use this for configuration tables as well as operational test data.
2) Troubleshoot prod issues. When we have trouble reproducing user issues, Data Compare helps us compare our test environment data vs prod environment data to identify problems.

Oracle Enterprise Manager

OEM is very well suited for all Oracle products, especially Oracle databases and Exadata machines; even not Oracle hardware, it is very good and displaying high level details.OEM is not well suited for older hardware vendors like AIX, HP-UX, DEC/Digital, Microsoft (sql server). This is a big negative as most large companies have a heterogeneous environment with many different vendor hardware and (database) software products.

Pros

dbForge Data Compare for MySQL

  • Compare entire or subset of MySQL tables between databases
  • Configure comparison rules
  • Sync data between compared databases depending on differences
  • Save comparison rules for reuse and sharing
  • Break down differences between missing/new records, or different records
  • See differences highlighted per field
  • Execute sync immediately, or save as an SQL script file
  • Command-line tool that can be used to add comparisons to deploy scripts

Oracle Enterprise Manager

  • Database status. Being able to see which databases are up/down, at a glance, allows us to quickly react to issues.
  • Reporting. We report on last backups, daily status, a host of metrics, and compliance levels of all our databases. With reporting we come into the office with a set of "status" reports and we know instantly if a database has issues.
  • Metrics. We have a number of KPI's and SLA's we need to meet. Metrics applied to the databases allow us to stay on top of those requirements as well as fix common issues without a DBA needing to log in to assess the issue.

Cons

dbForge Data Compare for MySQL

  • Comparison can be very slow on large datasets.
  • Comparing records that are *different* is clunky, especially for tables with many fields.
Anthony Aziz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Enterprise Manager

  • We also use OEM to monitor SQL Server. However, OEM only provided limited features for SQL Server. It would be nice if we can schedule backup jobs for SQL Server in OEM.
  • The ability to run SQL queries. You can't run queries in OEM. I have to go to SQL Developer or SQL PLUS to run. queries.

Alternatives Considered

dbForge Data Compare for MySQL

We haven't tried any other tools that do comparisons like Data Compare does. Our method prior to buying this tool was to manually run queries on each database and compare the output using text compare or by eye.

Oracle Enterprise Manager

Toad for Oracle is more suited for individual users who have a strong focus on database development, and it is not as comprehensive as Oracle Enterprise Manager. While it is quite decent in logical database layer tasks, such as schema objects and SQL, it lacks visibility into host level and I/O layer performance stats.

Return on Investment

dbForge Data Compare for MySQL

  • Improve developer productivity by making data syncing quicker and easier.
  • Reduce risk of deployment by ensuring data is in sync.
  • Reduce issue resolution time by making "bad data" investigations quicker.
Anthony Aziz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Enterprise Manager

  • You are practically blind without OEM. There are other tools available but are expensive and negatively impact database performance.
  • If a bug hits OEM and it skips monitoring or doesn't catch something, it can have extremely negative consequences.
  • Being able to deploy scripts through OEM has replaced thousands of hours of work.
