A better way to license xSQL database deployment tools

Today we are introducing a new, more efficient and much more affordable way to license our database deployment tools, SQL Schema Compare, SQL Data Compare, xSQL Builder and Script Executor - instead of purchasing a perpetual license for each tool you can now purchase a one year Silver Subscription that includes all four tools.

How is the subscription better? The answer is simple - it is a lot cheaper initially, $399 versus $1,497, and the cost differential gets better every year, subscription renewal is only $199 versus the yearly maintenance cost of $250 for the 4 tools.

I have a Comparison Bundle license, can I switch to a subscription? Yes, if you have a Comparison Bundle license you can purchase a Subscription Renewal for only $199. You will need to provide the Comparison Bundle license.

xSQL Profiler prices slashed more than 70%

Recently we took a "deep dive" into the feedback we have received regarding our xSQL Profiler and have come to realize that while the single SQL Server instance license is sufficient for a good percentage of our users, there are many of you that would have liked to trace multiple SQL Server instances simultaneously but found the prices for a 5 or more SQL Server instances license prohibitively expensive.

Today we are changing that, we have slashed the xSQL Profiler prices to the point where we believe anyone who needs a multi-server license can easily afford it. Here are the new prices for xSQL Profiler:
  • 1 SQL Server -> $0 (no change)
  • 5 SQL Server Instances -> $199
  • 10 SQL Server Instances -> $349
  • 20 SQL Server Instances -> $699
  • 100 SQL Server Instances -> $1,299
Keep sending us your comments and suggestions - we greatly appreciate it!
