Consolidation and Virtualization
Migrate existing physical database instances into a virtual environment. Easily
and seamlessly upgrade database instances from MySQL 4.1 to 5.X and SQL Server 2005
to 2008 or 2012. All data and settings are migrated resulting in zero code changes.
One click provisioning
Provision new database instances (including Highly Available) following a simple
one click wizard. Administrators can also define policies that standardize all deployments
resulting in lower TCO.
Full MySQL & MS SQL Featureset
New instances are guaranteed to support full MySQL & MS SQL featuresets. Unlike
public cloud SaaS solutions like Amazon RDS or SQL Azure, SQLDirector provides full
access (Including remote desktop access) to databases instances
Instances managed by SQLDirector are patched and monitored on an ongoing basis.
Administrators can define patch time and settings. Highly Available instances are
patched systematically to ensure no resulting downtime.
Service service console allows end users to access SQLDirector and provision new
database instances using standard policies defined by administrators. This improves
the productivity and agility of both end users and IT administrators.
Backup and Restore
All instances managed by SQLDirector are backed up based on policies defined by
IT administrators. Instances can also be restored or cloned using a single click.
