New Product Announcement: ApexSQL Enforce is out!

On March 2008, ApexSQL released ApexSQL Enforce to production. ApexSQL Enforce is a revolutionary new solution for Industry Best Practices adherence and Custom Standards enforcement for SQL Server Databases. ApexSQL Enforce empowers users to create complex custom rules by leveraging the full power of programming languages like C# and VB.NET.

With ApexSQL Enforce, you can enforce naming and coding conventions on your SQL Server databases, verify if your SQL Servers' settings are optimal, and automatically fix or reverse any standard violation.

ApexSQL Enforce comes with a set of Best Practices rules that can be used immediately on your own databases. Unlike some SQL standardization tools that are currently in the market, ApexSQL Enforce also allows you to create your own customized rules.

New Utility: ApexSQL Snapshot Utility

This year, ApexSQL released a free utility to create snapshots--read-only binary files that store complete information of database schemas.  Before, the only way to create ApexSQL snapshots was through ApexSQL Diff which had the functionality embedded to it. The ApexSQL Snapshot Utility enables users to create snapshots without ApexSQL Diff. The utility is FREE and can be installed on multiple remote sites.

See Using ApexSQL's Snapshot Utility for more information. Click here for a free download.
