Redgate SQL Compare: the only SQL comparison tool you'll ever need!

Score 10 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • 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.
  • I honestly can't think of anything I don't like or anything I would change.

Redgate SQL Compare -- What's to compare, save time and money!

Score 9 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • It allows you to set up projects for repetitive comparisions.
  • It organises object differences very well, with filters and searches available on top.
  • Redgate displays the differences between objects very clearly at script level.
  • It's created deployment scripts that you can either run yourself, or complete using the application.
  • So far so good. I have to be honest, it's not a complicated application, and so far hasn't caused me any issues or to question the choices of the developers!

Pros and Cons

  • Extremely fast!
  • Compares from source control, not just physical databases. No need to keep copies of databases of varying versions laying around.
  • Command line tools integrate easily into automated build processes.
  • Even has plugins for products like Octopus Deploy!
  • Not the best at initial setups. Sometimes there are error messages that have no bearing on what the problem really is.
  • Documentation sometimes can be lacking, but their support team will make up for that.

Pros and Cons

  • Deep, thorough SQL Server db comparisons in places you might not think to look.
  • Gives me flexibility on how I want to save or execute the SQL Compare results.
  • Remembers settings between uses that speed me in using it.
  • Has a clear and effective interface.
  • 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.
