Redgate SQL Data Compare Review: "A Perfect Data Compare for SQL Databases"

I actually use Redgate Data Compare every day a long time, this software used with his "brother" SQL Compare (used to compare DB structures) forms the winning pair for fast and simple control of DB and data structures (intended for each record, column by column) between different environments of development.
  • Very fast data comparison even on complex tables
  • Simple and intuitive use
  • Speed in compiling data alignment scripts
  • Requires version upgrade if you upgrade SQl Server
  • Some features or additional feature are hidden among the option's flags
  • License fee slightly high
If you plan to use Redgate Data Compare to automate data change between tables or SCD or similar, this is not the software that is right for you, Data Compare is a software that performs simply (but in an optimal manner) the comparison of data between tables of different databases on different environments or clone or mirror databases even on the same environment or server. Once the data is compared, you can select or deselect each line you want to update and then have the data alignment script prepared for it.

Redgate is used by the entire organization to Backup and Recover Microsoft SQL Servers hosted on HyperV and Physical Hosts.

It solved our business need for solid SQL Server Backups, Retention Policies, and De-duplication via Advanced Compression. It also provided a great Centralized Management of the SQL Server Environment. I would highly recommend it.
  • It provided a Great Centralized Management Console. User can go to the Console to manage all of their Redgate Licenses and also configure SQL Server Backups.
  • It does an excellent job at managing the SQL Backup and Compressing the backup file to allow for easy transport to DR Locations.
  • It has great options for SQL Server Backup Jobs including copying to secondary storage locations.
  • Better License Management would be an improvement. Currently no way to manage your licenses without contacting your representative.
  • Possibly better testing of backups would an improvement. Ability to restore files in a Sandbox would be a great feature.
Redgate SQL Backup is well suited for use in large and small organizations. It is scalable to needs of a large organization as they expand their footprint. Some of their other products such as the SQL Toolbelt and the Redgate SQL Monitor are also extremely beneficial. Organizations with low bandwidth between interconnects will benefit from the compression feature.
