AquaFold releases Aqua Data Studio 2.0

Silicon Valley, CA -- 02/24/2003 -- AquaFold, Inc today announced the latest version of Aqua Data Studio, it's universal database tool for building, managing and maintaining enterprise relational databases. Aqua Data Studio includes support for all major database platforms such as Oracle 8i/9i, IBM DB2, Sybase Adaptive Server, Microsoft SQL Server and the open source databases MySQL and PostgreSQL. Developed with the Java programming language, Aqua Data Studio supports all major operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX, Solaris and the Linux operating system. Providing a universal database tool for all databases on all operating systems allows developers to choose their development platform of choice on a level playing field.

"Our choice to release Aqua Data Studio free for use without any download restrictions has kept us busy tracking how developers are using our tool" said John Haxor, Lead Architect of Aqua Data Studio. "We currently have users in over 90 countries." says John Haxor. Working in mixed operating system and database environments is proving to be the biggest pain point for database users. "I tested on SQL Server 2000, Oracle, Sybase ASE 12.5 and Postgres 7.3. Really nice. I like the ability to connect to open windows to multiple different databases at the same time especially!" said one developer. "This will be an interesting program to try out since we use Win2k (Windows 2000), Mac OS-X and Linux workstations, with Win2k SQL-Server servers and one Oracle 8 database on a central campus Sun server, with a planned Postgresql trial database due to be developed this spring." said another user.

Aqua Data Studio provides an integrated database environment with a single consistent interface to all major relational databases. This allows the database administrators and developer to tackle multiple tasks simultaneously from one application. Aqua Data Studio's sophisticated Query Analyzer allows users to work on database scripts with specific RDBMS syntax highlighting and auto-completion to develop and test scripts, including detailed client statistical information and multi-grid results. Its graphical browsing capabilities allow you to understand the structure and dependencies of the database schema at a click of a mouse and to easily browse and select database scripts. It also includes the ability to save your query results in many formats including HTML and XML.

Driven by the universal support for databases and operating systems, developers are switching to Aqua Data Studio as their primary database tool for designing and maintaining their databases. Given quick access to Aqua Data Studio and immediate productivity benefits, usage is growing virally with over 20,000 users and over 1,000 new users per week.
