Quest Updates Toad开源数据库工具

Quest Software周一宣布了对其Toad开源数据库软件应用程序的一系列更新,包括Toad Edge,Toad Data Point和Toad Intelligence Central产品的新版本。

在去年夏天发布了Toad Edge的第一个版本之后,该公司开始在其Toad World社区站点上看到支持MySQL的免费软件下载量激增。Quest的高级产品经理Julie Hyman表示,它还收到了支持MariaDB和Postgres的请求。

她告诉LinuxInsider:“客户现在急切地希望获得这些附加平台的支持,而我们正在交付。”

该公司上个月开始支持MariaDB。它将在2月的Toad World预览版中提供对Postgres的支持,并在4月或5月之前提供商用。

平台管理更轻松

Quest表示,更新后的Toad Edge v1.2使开发和管理下一代开源数据库平台变得更加容易,并增加了对在Microsoft Azure上运行的MariaDB和MySQL实例的支持。

Toad Data Point v4.3包含重新配置的枢轴网格,该网格具有更直接的工作流程,允许分析人员添加计算出的列。新版本还具有增强的Excel功能,包括按需或以自动方式直接导出到Excel数据透视表的功能。新版本使过滤单个查询结果集并将其聚合到多个视图中变得更加容易。

Toad Intelligence Central的4.3版允许在Web控制台中进行编辑,这使修改已发布或共享的图,可视查询,自动化和SQL文件变得更加容易。此更新还允许进行管理健康检查报告。此外,它提供了动态的交叉查询增强功能,减少了复杂数据库和跨平台查询的响应时间。

市场转移

Quest援引Gartner的预测说,到今年年底,有70%的新应用程序将在开源数据库上运行,而50%的商业数据库将被转换或正在转向开源。

Hyman认为,与大型商业数据公司的同类产品相比,公司可以节省多达80-90%的成本。

价值主张

Constellation Research 首席分析师Holger Mueller观察到,Toad引入了更新的功能是件好事,他指出,私募股权公司Francisco Partners和对冲基金经理Elliott Management收购了Dell Software Group,并于2016年底将其重新推出为Quest。

Mueller认为,Toad之类的工具的价值主张对于必须跨异构系统和不同平台管理数据的开发人员和DBA(无论是云还是本地)变得更加重要。

他对LinuxInsider表示:“在开源空间中添加更多Toad支持的数据库,例如此版本中的MariaDB和MySQL,可以使用通用工具集为企业提供更多选择。” “我们将不得不看到在数据库负载和部署方面将带来什么样的潜在变化,但是在数据库市场中进展将缓慢。”

Constellation首席分析师Doug Henschen说,Toad产品线具有帮助数据库管理员提高效率的历史。

他告诉LinuxInsider,该公司已经适应了现代DevOps时代。DBA,开发人员和分析专家现在“必须共同努力,以支持快速开发和运营”以及对数据驱动应用程序的持续优化。

原文题目:Quest Updates Toad Open Source Database Tools

原文:Quest Software on Monday announced a series of updates to its Toad open source database software applications, including new versions of its Toad Edge, Toad Data Point and Toad Intelligence Central products.

After launching the first version of Toad Edge last summer, the company began seeing an uptick in downloads of freeware that supported MySQL on its Toad World community site. It also received requests to support MariaDB and Postgres, according to Julie Hyman, senior product manager at Quest.

"The customers are now champing at the bit for support of those additional platforms and we are delivering," she told LinuxInsider.

The company began supporting MariaDB last month. It will provide support for Postgres with a Toad World preview release in February and commercial availability by April or May.

Easier Platform Management

The updated Toad Edge v1.2 makes it easier to develop and manage next-generation open source database platforms, with added support for MariaDB and MySQL instances running on Microsoft Azure, according to Quest.

Toad Data Point v4.3 includes a reconfigured pivot grid with a more straightforward workflow, allowing analysts to add calculated columns. The new version also features enhanced Excel capabilities, including the ability to export directly to an Excel pivot table on demand or in an automated fashion. The new version makes it easier to filter and aggregate a single query result set into multiple views.

Version 4.3 of Toad Intelligence Central allows editing within the Web console, which makes it easier to revise published or shared diagrams, visual queries, automation and SQL files. The update also allows for administrative health check reporting. Further, it provides for dynamic cross-query enhancements, reducing response time for complex database and cross-platform queries.

Market Shift

Seventy percent of new applications will operate on open source databases by this year and 50 percent of commercial databases will have been converted or will be in the process of changing to open source, Quest said, citing Gartner forecasts.

Companies can save up to 80-90 percent of costs compared to similar products from the large commercial data companies, according to Hyman.

Value Proposition

It's good that Toad has introduced updated capabilities, observed Holger Mueller, principal analyst at Constellation Research, who noted that private equity firm Francisco Partners and hedge fund manager Elliott Management acquired Dell Software Group and in late 2016 relaunched it as Quest.

The value proposition of tools like Toad becomes even greater for developers and DBAs who have to manage data across heterogeneous systems and different platforms, be they cloud or on-premises, Mueller argued.

"Adding more Toad-supported databases in the open source space, like MariaDB and MySQL in this release, gives enterprises more choices, using a common toolset," he told LinuxInsider. "We will have to see what kind of potential shifts in terms of database load and deployment that will bring, but things will move slowly in the database market."

The Toad product line has a history of helping database administrators become more effective, said Doug Henschen, also a principal analyst at Constellation.

The company has adapted to the modern DevOps era, he told LinuxInsider. DBAs, developers and analytics professionals now "have to work together in support of fast development and operationalization" and ongoing optimization of data-driven apps.
