Good Afternoon everybody!
I am required to prepare a report of investigating the best tools for a SQL SERVER DBA, in the market. I have actually worked with the redgate tools to some extent, like for Database comparision and and creation of the test data, in particular.Apart from this, I see that we,at our workplace, would also need a to compress the database backups in future. I personally like with whatever I worked within the redgate tool set,but not sure, if i have to tell my higher officials this is a must have tool in the team. I am sure, I can get the best answers here, as most of you would have opinions about the best ones. Could you all please share your opinions and suggest what could be an alternative, if these tools(redgate tools) are not a must have?
