Idera Announces First-of-Its-Kind SQL Virtual Database Product

Public Beta Now Open for Tool That Reduces Time, Storage Spent Recovering SQL Server Data

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - September 28, 2009) - Idera, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and leading provider of management and administration solutions for Microsoft SQL Server, today announced the public beta availability of a new product, SQL virtual database™.

SQL virtual database is a one-of-a-kind solution that lets database administrators attach SQL Server backup files and query them just like they were "live" SQL Server databases. This revolutionary, patent-pending technology enables instant-access to critical data in a backup file without wasting the time or storage necessary to restore the database. To extract the data needed, simply attach the backup file, and use any native SQL Server or third-party tool to query and extract the data in minutes.

"SQL virtual database is a unique tool that will change the way DBAs do their jobs," said Rick Pleczko, President and CEO of Idera. "We are eager to hear the innovative ways that DBAs will use SQL virtual database to quickly recover data, examine database changes, solve reporting issues, reduce storage costs and reap many other benefits."
