Which SQL Sever 3rd Party tools do you use?
We've been using Red Gate's SQL Compare and SQL Data Compare for a few years now. I rarely use the data compare tool though, but not because it's not a great tool. We also use Quest's SQL LiteSpeed product. It reduced our backup files and backup times by 75%! The disk savings on our SAN was huge.
We are considering purchasing a few Idera products. I've recommended their SQLschedule product to a group here that manages over 250 jobs across 2 database servers.
If you aren't using any 3rd Party tools, is it because there is no budget for it or you don't know what's out there? Things to consider when deciding on which tool to purchase or at least demo are price, licensing scheme, disk savings in the case of backup tools, and man hour savings.
