The suite of Minion tools is made up of Minion Enterprise – the full suite of SQL Server enterpriseÂ management modules – andÂ three free, standalone modules for SQL Server backup and maintenanceÂ -Â Minion Reindex, Minion Backup, and MinionÂ CheckDB. Â These three free modules are standalone – these don’t have a central repository.
Minion EnterpriseÂ is an enterprise management solution for centralized SQL Server management and alerting. In short, you install “ME” on an instance,Â add the names of servers to manage, andÂ Minion Enterprise begins taking care of business. It collects a vast array of data, scripts out database objects, implements service down alerts, and much more. ME accomplishes all this without dropping one object on any of the managed servers, which makes upgrades extraordinarily easy. This solution allows your database administrator to manage an enterprise of one, hundreds, or even thousands of SQL Servers from one central location, and it ties in with the other Minion modules. Minion Enterprise provides not just alerting and reporting, but backups, maintenance, configuration, and enforcement. Minion Enterprise includes and centralizes all of the other Enterprise modules:
- Minion Core Enterprise
- Minion SecurityÂ Enterprise
- Minion SpaceÂ Enterprise
- Minion BackupÂ Enterprise
- Minion ReindexÂ Enterprise
- Minion CheckDBÂ Enterprise
Each one of these modules canÂ be purchased individually,Â or together as Minion Enterprise. Sign up for a free 90 day trial on the Minion EnterpriseÂ page.
Minion ReindexÂ isÂ a SQL Server index maintenanceÂ solution that is fully automated out of the box, intuitive to use, simple to customize, deeply configurable, and easy to report from. Existing index maintenance solutions fall short in ease of deployment, configurability, reporting, and more. We designed Minion Reindex for database administrators, to solve every one of these headaches.
Minion BackupÂ is the new standard in SQL Server backup solutions. We have developed it to be the most comprehensive and flexible backup solution on the market. MB is fully HA/DR enabled and has many features that help you manage, plan, troubleshoot, and report on all your backups. And it does it without any extra jobs. And when coupled with Minion Enterprise, MB provides unprecedented management, control, planning and reporting. Watch the intro webinarÂ to see what Minion Backup can do for you.
