I think I’ve briefly mentioned SQL Delta a couple of times in previous posts. SQL Delta is a tool which competes with RedGate’s SQL suite of tools, and it’s one which I purchased a while ago for some database comparison/syncing work. SQL Delta offers both structure and data comparison in the one tool, which makes it really good value for money. Since then it’s been a handy addition to my toolkit, and one which I’ve meant to blog about for a while now.
This post is not that blog, instead, it’s a quick update to mention that they’ve just released version 5.0 (click the link for the list of changes in this release). Full review coming soon, but until then if you’re in need of some database tools and can’t quite justify the cost of RedGate’s offerings (as fine as they are) then you should take a look at SQL Delta.
