The session is intended for DBAs, sysadmins who happen to manage SQL as well.
When we created SQLDocKit we wanted to have powerful inventory tool where you can compare snapshots over time and when you inventor all your servers to compare them with industry best practices. Most important stuff:
- auto discover new SQL servers auto-magically
- generate word, excel or PDF documentation
- document database engine as well as BI services (Integration, Analysis and Reporting services)
- document all permissions of the SQL server and databases as well
- track the changes on the SQL servers and databases over time, so you can compare different servers or same servers across different time range
- various reports and forecast about mdf and ldf growth, forecasting disk space left etc…
The product is paid and commercial however for free SQL server editions from Microsoft (SQL Express and Developer instances it is free as well). So if you have UAT, DEV or Test environments only with this instances you can use it. The tool is free for MVPs, MCMs and Microsoft employees as well.
The pricing per server starts from $299 per windows server (u can have unlimited instances there) or if you are a consultant you can have consulting license for $1249 a year which allows you to add unlimited instances and servers.
Why I Want to Present This Session:
I want to spread the word about the new kid on the block designed by DBAs for DBAs providing them an easy to use, generate and understand documentation as well as central management solution for a lot of SQL Servers.
