Share custom solutions in the MinionWare Community Zone

The Minion backup and maintenance modules are free, and completely open. So it’s really easy for our target audience (DBAs) to write their own queries, alerts, reports, and whatever else they could possibly need. And now, they can share those solutions online at the MinionWare Community Zone. We can’t wait to see what’s next!

Since we released Minion Reindex over a year and a half ago, we’ve had a ton of wonderful feedback, praise, questions, and best of all, custom made solutions to custom in-house problems.

You see, Minion Reindex and Minion Backup are both free, and completely open. Nothing’s encrypted, and all data and configuration options are in tables. Minion Enterprise also stores configurations and collected data in tables (and, provides views and functions for easy access). So it’s really easy for our target audience – that is, database administrators – to write their own queries, alerts, reports, and whatever else they could possibly need.

And now, they can share those solutions online at the MinionWare Community Zone.

This is a brand new feature, so it’ll take a little while to really ramp up the submissions. And we’re moderating submissions, just to be sure there’s not a bunch of TRUNCATE TABLE or CREATE LOGIN statements, or the like.  That’ll add just a little time to growing the library of scripts. But we’ve already seen some really innovative solutions from users. We can’t wait to see what’s next!
