Minion CheckDB completes the MinionWare maintenance and backups suite in style. Each solution is plug-and-play for the busy DBA, and deeply configurable for those shops with in-depth needs.
This new module is MinionWare’s most ambitious free release yet, featuring all of the rich scheduling and logging functionality in previous products, plus remote CheckDB, multithreading, custom snapshots, rotational scheduling, and more.
In this webinar we’ll show you how this FREE tool by MinionWare can meet your needs with almost effortless management. You are going to LOVE it.
*(Giveaway offer is not open to previous ME winners.)
MinionWare will release Minion CheckDB on Febuary 1, 2017!
Minion CheckDB 1.0
Minion CheckDB is the third piece of our free backup and maintenance tools, rounding out the list with Minion Backup and Minion Reindex. CheckDB will have the same native interface, the same configurability, and the same rich scheduling introduced in Minion Backup. And of course, it will have a the same kind of visionary features that users have come to expect from MinionWare products, like:
Automated rotating schedules for objects
Automated remote CheckDB operations
Automated choice of whether databases get a DBCC CheckDB operation, or a series of DBCC CheckTable operations
And much more!
Minion Backup 1.3
What’s more, we will also release Minion Backup 1.3 on that date! New MB features include:
Our new dynamic naming functionality (called named parts)
Improved restore process
Additional advances both for their own sake and to support Minion CheckDB
It’s been a year since we officially launched MinionWare and launched our flagship product, Minion Enterprise. Since then we’ve hit many SQL Saturdays, and a few other events, to spread the word. And things are looking bright! We’ve been received openly by the community we’ve given so much time to, and we’re finding our foothold as a vendor.
You guys know our business model: Give away as much as you can. We started by giving away our world-class maintenance tools (Minion Backup and Minion Reindex), and we’ve committed ourselves and our company to only making them better. With the excitement we feel about the upcoming release of Minion CheckDB and the fact that we just passed our 1 year anniversary, we’ve decided to do something bigger…give away Minion Enterprise.
From now until 5:00pm (Central Time), on July 15, 2016, anyone who emails us a request will get 3 free Minion Enterprise licenses.
We really want to say thanks to the SQL community worldwide and we couldn’t think of a better way. Somehow merely saying thanks just didn’t seem big enough. So, thanks…and have some free enterprise management software for life.
Of course there are just a couple caveats so see the restrictions below:
Email us before 5:00pm Central Time on July 15. If you’re even 1 minute late, that’s too bad, because the offer is over.
This is available for the current version only. Free licenses are eligible for patches and service releases of the current version, but not upgrades.
Support will be offered for 3 months. Afterwards a support contract will need to be purchased.
Any additional licenses will need to be purchased.
Licenses are not transferable to any other companies.
