June 10, 2008 - Quest Software, Inc. announced the release of two products that will enable customers to manage growth and change in SQL Server environments.


Capacity Manager for SQL Server 2.5 enables control of disk space, growth rates and database performance, while Change Director for SQL Server permits easier implementation and control of enterprise-wide changes.


Capacity Manager for SQL Server 2.5 offers capacity planning for SQL Server databases and the applications they support, such as SharePoint. Database administrators (DBAs) have a centralized console that provides a holistic view of capacity across the database.

Capacity Manager offers intelligent index maintenance to ensure rebuilding takes place during appropriate windows of time so performance is not impacted, and simplifies table partitioning to improve the performance of the database. It also collects data constantly through integration with Spotlight on SQL Server Enterprise’s data repository to make sure that information is on hand for consolidation projects.


Quest’s latest release of Change Director for SQL server, a solution that allows DBAs to automate the deployment and migration of database schema changes,  implements enterprise-wide changes by using optional middle-tier architecture. The introduction of a middle tier affords flexibility and scalability by offloading schema comparisons, impact analyses, script generation and job scheduling to a persistent processing tier.
