Quest recently released its Toad for cloud databases, which the company said addresses the shortage of skill-set and enables database professionals to directly apply their existing skills to emerging big data systems. They will be able to do this through SQL-based interface for managing non-relational data.
After releasing the Toad for cloud databases in June of this year, Quest became one of the first companies to provide a SQL-based database management tool to support emerging, non-relational platforms.
Toad for cloud databases enables users to generate queries, migrate, browse, and edit data, as well as create reports and tables in a familiar SQL view. The platform allows more IT teams to experience the productivity gains and cost benefits of NoSQL and big data.
“We began development for Toad for cloud databases more than three years ago, knowing that the way organizations manage data, and the database management industry itself, was about to change dramatically,” said Guy Harrison, senior director of research and development at Quest Software.
“With support for accessing seven emerging Big Data technologies, and the familiar interface that has won Toad millions of loyal users, the community edition of Toad for cloud databases will allow us to keep running fast at adding new features and bringing more value to the developer community,” he added.
