The Future of Toad is Now – Introducing Toad Edge

Over the past couple years, the use of open-source database management systems has dramatically increased – so much, in fact, that experts are predicting a dramatic market shift from commercial, closed-source DBMSs to OSDBMSs within the next few years. With 31 percent year-over-year market growth since 2013, the numbers speak for themselves.

Gartner has weighed-in: “By 2018, more than 70 percent of new in-house applications will be developed on an OSDBMS, and 50 percent of existing relational DBMS instances will have been converted or will be in process.”

During this webcast, you’ll see how our newest Toad product, Toad Edge, is addressing this new space. You’ll see how we’re supporting your organization’s commitment to open source RDBMS with proven commercial tooling to help you ramp up on MySQL and ensure quicker time to value. Toad Edge represents the next generation of Toad tooling – lightweight, flexible and extensible – simplifying MySQL development and administration, whether running in a Windows or Mac OS X environment.

In this session, we’ll demo some of the coolest features Toad Edge offers, including:

  • Advanced code completion, SQL autocomplete and formatting
  • MySQL JSON data browser/editor
  • Dynamic schema compare and sync
  • User privilege management
  • And more

Join us to see firsthand how the new Toad Edge will give you confidence in your enterprise MySQL commitment.

Multi-CDN Made Easy Webinar

Many enterprises are finding it increasingly difficult to deliver a consistently high quality end user experience to a global online audience using a single Content Delivery Network (CDN). CDN providers have different strengths and weaknesses so it is unsurprising when a single provider does not adequately address the needs of a global online organization.

The good news is there are plenty of CDN providers to choose from, and by leveraging the right combination of providers, enterprises can simultaneously improve end user quality of experience while lowering costs. The means to achieve this goal is based on the ability to intelligently steer traffic to the right CDN at the right time.

Join our live hands-on webinar to learn how to plan, implement, and test a multi-CDN strategy that's right for your organization.

Key Reasons For Using an Independent DNS Provider

Many cloud and CDN providers also offer in-house managed DNS services. If you are hosting your content or applications with these providers, you might use their DNS service without much thought. However, this can limit your ability to deliver the performance and customer experience your business needs.

In this webinar you will learn when and why you should use an independent DNS provider.

  • Workload optimization
  • Performance

Join us to learn how multi-cloud can benefit your business, considerations you should make, and how to get started.

Data Center Evolution: Getting In Front Of the Change

BY THE END OF 2018, 50 PERCENT OF NORTH AMERICAN SERVER RACKS WILL BE OFF-SITE.

Data centers have come a long way since they first began appearing as a fixture of corporate computing. According to Datacenter Dynamics, the total number of data centers around the world was set to peak at 8.6 million in 2017, and then begin a slow decline. But what is driving the decline?

In the era of widespread cloud adoption and cloud-enabled managed hosting, more and more enterprises are realizing that managing issues like IT sprawl and underutilized servers is a headache they can live without. The economics of running large data centers has fundamentally changed, leading to a change in long-term IT strategy.

In our Data Center Evolution: Getting in Front of the Change video, join speaker Jim Hawkins, VP, Global DC Operations & Engineering at Rackspace as he:

  • Discusses the evolution of the data center and its current trajectory
  • Experiences a virtual tour of Rackspace’s data centers and operations
