About SQL Clone
I can hear you thinking, “What’s SQL Clone, Andy?” I’m glad you asked!
SQL Clone is a database provisioning tool that removes much of the time and disk space needed to create multiple database copies. With SQL Clone, database copies can be created in seconds and each copy uses around 40MB of disk space, no matter the size of the original database. Provisioning requests can be dealt with very quickly, and teams can work locally on up-to-date, isolated copies of the database to speed up development, accurately test code, and fix issues faster.
About the Amazon Echo Dot
I can hear you thinking, “So how do I win an Amazon Echo Dot, Andy?” I’m glad you asked!
Amazon’s Alexa Voice Service is the engine behind the Amazon Echo, Tap, and Dot devices. The talented developers at Redgate built an Alexa Skill – a capability that enables interaction between people and devices and services – to facilitate voice-activated database cloning using SQL Clone. You can view a cool video of SQL Clone in action via Alexa here!
“How Do I Enter to Win?”
To enter the competition, post a comment stating what “skill” you would build with an Echo Dot (if time and money were no object). Maybe you’d like to know when a backup fails or how many deployments have been made to a database. Or maybe you would like to a reminder to record your favorite TV show! It doesn’t necessarily have to be database-related.
The contest ends 30 April. Winners will be announced 5 May on the Redgate blog. Please check the Redgate blog on May 5 to see if you've won. See the full contest terms and conditions are here.
So have at it! Leave a comment to enter to win a free Amazon Echo Dot. Redgate is giving away five Dots! And one lucky winner will receive a SQL Clone license!
