When it comes to the heavy lifting of database development and database administration, Toad® by Quest® wins hands down.
“Toad for Oracle Base costs money. SQL Developer is free. I’m going with free.”
We know we’re going to hear that from some people as we sunset Quest® Toad® for Oracle Freeware this year. After all, who doesn’t like free?
But when it comes to the heavy lifting of database development and database administration, there’s not much comparison between the two products. Toad for Oracle Base gives you the muscle to be so much more productive than you can be with a freeware product like SQL Developer.
And now, it’s available by subscription, with a low, low, low introductory rate of $195.
Why should you subscribe?
This offer is geared with the small business owner and Toad for Oracle Freeware user in mind and is a single-seat license with the introductory price available now to year end. That’s more than a 60% savings off the regular price.
It’s been our privilege to build and maintain Toad for Oracle for decades. Many of your suggestions have made the product better and better over the years. Here are four ways we’ve continued improving the Toad for Oracle features that are wanting or missing in free products like SQL Developer:
Have a look at the independent side-by-side reviews of Toad for Oracle vs. SQL Developer to see what we mean.
One more thing: How do you feel about vendor lock-in? Oracle sells a database of course, and it happens that one function of SQL Developer is to convert non-Oracle databases to Oracle. Quest, on the other hand, doesn’t have a horse in the database race, so we’re happy with whichever database makes you happy, including Oracle, SQL Server, DB2 and SAP.
It’s time to upgrade from Toad for Oracle Freeware to Toad for Oracle Base subscription. It’s the fastest path to build up those database development and database administration muscles.
Better database development and administration than SQL Developer —Toad for Oracle Base
Free may be good, but it’s not necessarily better.
With the sunsetting of Toad for Oracle Freeware, you may think you need to find and break in another freeware database management toolset. But if you already know Toad or Oracle SQL Developer, this is the perfect time to upgrade to Toad for Oracle Base.
Small businesses and Toad for Oracle Freeware users should take advantage of the introductory price of US$195.00 for a one-year, single-seat license to Toad for Oracle Base. The promotion runs through December 31, 2020.
