The Toad product line has been a wildly popular database development and database administration tool among Oracle, SQL Server and DB2 database administrators and developers for years. With more than 2 million users world-wide, it is definitely the market leader within the database development and administration tools market.
Quest has historically supported a number of different solutions with Sybase support including Toad Data Modeler, Toad for Data Analysts, Benchmark Factory, SQL Optimizer and Spotlight, but there hasn’t been a true Toad UI for Sybase development and administration. But in 2010, that began to change with the beta announcement of Toad for Sybase.
Like the Toads’ before it, Toad for Sybase was community driven with an open beta where the development team rapidly released new versions of the beta based off feedback from the users. Well after 6 months and 15,000 beta downloads, Quest has released Toad for Sybase 1.o.
Toad® for Sybase provides an intelligent and systematic way to manage your Sybase environment. It dramatically simplifies Sybase development and administration, making it easy to proactively solve performance issues across your Sybase ASE, IQ, and SQL Anywhere databases.
The Toad for Sybase GUI tool has several different versions. You can download a 30 day trial of the advanced versions which support Sybase ASE, Sybase IQ and Sybase SQL Anywhere from http://www.quest.com/toad-for-sybase/ or you can download a full-featured unrestricted version of the product for Sybase ASE from the community site at http://bit.ly/oMvRex on ToadWorld.com
