We use miniDBA Server to monitor our production servers and then use the desktop's ability to also connect directly to SQL server, for ad-hoc tuning of development databases.
- I haven't seen this kind of flexibility in a tool anywhere else.
- John Lee
"I love the fact I can choose which databases to directly monitor with miniDBA Desktop without having to ask admins to do anything.
The ability to ad-hoc connect to anyones SQL Instance to trouble-fix for them in a couple of clicks really makes this cool." - Gavin McClure
"Only having to pay for licenses once, on our miniDBA Server and taking the cost and load off our desktop clients is great.
Plus I love also being able to remote log in and see what is happening on my iPad - this is a well designed product." - Alex Ramsgate
