SQL Virtual Database

Idera SQL Virtual Database is a feature of Idera’s data management software that allows users to create a virtual copy of a SQL Server database. The virtual copy, or VDB, can be used for a variety of purposes, such as testing, reporting, or providing a read-only copy of the data to users without giving them access to the live database. The VDB is created using a process called “snapshot” which creates a point-in-time copy of the data stored in a different location. This allows the VDB to be used independently of the live database without affecting its performance. The VDB can be restored to a previous state at any time, and it can be used to test upgrades and schema changes before they are implemented on the live database.

SQL Defrag Manager

Idera Defrag Manager is a software tool from Idera that helps optimise the performance of SQL Server databases by defragmenting their indexes. Defragmentation is the process of reorganising the data in a database to increase the speed and efficiency of queries. When a database is heavily used, its indexes can become fragmented, which means that the data is spread out over many different pages and is not stored in a contiguous manner. This can lead to poor performance, as the SQL Server engine has to read multiple pages to retrieve the data it needs.

Idera Defrag Manager allows users to analyse and defragment the indexes in their SQL Server databases, either manually or on a schedule. It also provides detailed reporting on the fragmentation of the indexes, allowing users to identify which indexes are in need of defragmentation. The software also supports automated defragment of indexes and reporting of fragmentation levels. This can help to improve the performance and responsiveness of SQL Server databases and reduce the risk of data corruption.
