HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - May 12, 2011) - Idera, a leading provider of Microsoft SQL Server management and administration solutions, today announced that the Idera SQL toolbox™ was named as a Finalist in the Best of TechEd 2011 awards program in the Database Administration category by Penton Media's Windows IT Pro, SQL Server Magazine, DevProConnections and SharePointPro. Idera's SQL toolbox is an advanced collection of must-have tools for SQL Server DBAs and developers, including tools for SQL Server database performance, comparison, backup, virtual data recovery, and more than 20 daily administrative tasks.

"To be chosen as one of the top database administration tools this year after winning this award last year proves that the SQL toolbox hits the mark when it comes to meeting the needs of SQL Server DBAs," said Heather Sullivan, Director of SQL Server Products at Idera. "We're looking forward to showing the experts at Penton Media the functionality we have added to the SQL toolbox in the last year to continue to make the DBAs job easier."

The Best of TechEd 2011 awards recognize companies that offer innovative products for the industry. The judges reviewed 334 products and services submitted for the award and chose 47 finalists to be interviewed at the Microsoft TechEd North America 2011 conference in Atlanta, Georgia on May 16, 2011. Winners will be announced at an invite-only evening reception at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, May 18.

"We received a record number of nominations this year -- more than 300 -- and determining an array of finalists from that large, diverse field was difficult," said Jason Bovberg, Senior Editor at Windows IT Pro. "The mix of products and services from year to year is ever-changing and exciting, and we feel that our 47 finalists represent highly distinguished products and services in their categories. We look forward to our show-floor interviews, which will lead to the determination of winners. For all categories, as always, our judging process involves three criteria: strategic importance to the market, competitive advantage, and value to customers. Our winners will be particularly strong in those areas."
