AquaFold Leaps Ahead with Enterprise Tools for IT Professionals in the Latest Release of Aqua Data Studio 10.0

Sunnyvale, CA — September 27, 2011 — AquaFold, Inc. has released Aqua Data Studio 10.0, a major upgrade to its universal database query and administration software that makes it simple for database professionals to visualize and manipulate multiple relational databases from within a single interface. With every release the application has proven itself to be an indispensable tool for Portfolio Managers, Market and Risk Analysts, Software Developers and Database Administrators worldwide, who save time and money by consolidating the design, development and maintenance of enterprise relational databases into one versatile application.

With the release of version 10.0, Aqua Data Studio’s functionality has integrated even more enterprise tools requested by today’s database professionals. The new Secure Shell, Compression Tool, PDF Viewer, and Version Control clients for Perforce and Git help streamline day-to-day IT tasks and enhance the overall functionality of the software. This release has also been redesigned and optimized with a multithreaded architecture that allows time-intensive tasks, such as complex database queries or connections over slow networks, to continue in the background without affecting overall GUI performance.

“We’re in constant conversation with our users, and version 10.0 really delivers on everything data analysts, database administrators and developers told us they need to get their work done quickly,” explains AquaFold’s Chief Software Architect, Niels Gron. “They love Aqua Data Studio 10 because it means fewer applications to use, less time spent on data conversion, complete control over individual preferences, and a great deal of savings on software licenses.”

Gron notes that for Aqua Data Studio fans, the software has long ago outgrown its conventional “query tool” label, replacing dozens of disparate applications with a single, secure and collaborative development environment that covers all aspects of data management. By way of example, he points out that version 10.0 not only offers one version control system but integrates clients for all four leading systems, including Subversion, CVS, Perforce and Git.

Other user interface enhancements include the ability to save workspace layout and content on exit, user-defined interface shortcuts, a tabbed interface design, and other features that aim to improve productivity within the application. Improvements have also extended to Aqua Open APIs, with new functions added for developers to help accelerate import/export operations and integrate further with the recently released Aqua Data Server. Never before has a database query tool offered users such a degree of versatility, which is of paramount importance for today’s large companies with thousands of database servers.

“Our goal is to help organizations streamline tasks and lower costs, replacing a wide variety of single-purpose tools they used to need just to connect to and manage their database servers,” says Gron. “We’re offering them a powerful application to increase employee productivity and drive down infrastructure costs at a time when everyone needs to trim expenses.”
