      Redgate SQL Compare

      We use SQL Compare to troubleshoot performance problems quite a bit since our data model is more like a template and not everything is 100% in sync and customization occurs between different client databases. We continually get pulled into performance issues and the developers will say Client A is performing different than Client B, why? Using SQL Compare, we usually find that one client was tuned and had indexes altered or added that weren't deployed to all clients or other objects weren't deployed correctly during the release.On the other hand, since our data model practices allow client databases to drift I tried to create a new golden image by trying to compare multiple databases based on the same data model and found it to be a very difficult process to complete using SQL Compare. SQL Compare gave me too much information and doesn't allow enough filtering to eliminate a lot of the noise.

      Redgate SQL Compare

      • Simple and easy comparison of database schemas and data. Differences can be copied or synced from one database to another with a click of a button.
      • You can save "projects" so that you can easily rerun a previous comparison whenever you need to.
      • It has a very simple, easy to learn interface. I've never needed to read any documentation or watch any tutorials in order to figure out how to do something.

      Redgate SQL Compare

      • Pricing.... I wish there was an inexpensive developer version I could buy for myself.
      • Portability.... I would like to use it from a flash drive so I can use it where ever I am asked to work.
      • Unbundled.... This may be available already but I dont' recall I can buy it cheaply as a stand-alone product. Its only part of the bundle - cost effectively.

      It's a good tool to have, but becomes expensive to buy a user license for each developer.

      They have a great community website where you can search for answers but are also very responsive when it comes to direct support.

      Redgate SQL Compare

      I've used Visual Studio Database Projects for this type of work in the past with some success, but Redgate SQL Compare is faster, more transparent, and simply easier to use. Faster is self explanatory.More transparent, means that it's much easier to set up your desired options for schema change deployment scripts.Easier to use, It's really dead simple. Start a project, connect your source, connect destination, click compare.

      Redgate SQL Compare

      • Makes deployment fairly simple. Cutting our deployment time down.
      • With the SDK, we can customize our deployment process very quickly and easily.
      • History is not great, it does create scripts you can go back and see but it would be nice to have a quicker version view by object to save time.
