Generate numerically ordered SQL migration scripts that sit inside your project and take your schema from one version to the next.
You can add them to version control, use them to build and release, and automate database and application deployments, all in one process.
Save time with automatic migration scripts
Save time with ReadyRoll’s automatic suggestions for migration scripts. You can use them as they are, or edit them in Visual Studio before sharing them with your team.
The scripts are generated by the SQL Compare engine, the industry standard for comparing and deploying SQL Server database schemas quickly and accurately
Keep full control over changes
Because you define your migration scripts up front, you keep precise control over how your changes are deployed. Scripts get a sequential number, and you add them to your version control system as part of your complete solution in Visual Studio.
Change management is simple and there’s no chance of errors from running scripts in the wrong order.
Deploy with confidence
Test scripts before they hit production with ReadyRoll’s shadow database. Use this disposable clone of your database to test your deployment and check your scripts take you to the state you want.
When you’re ready to deploy for real, you can be certain your changes work
First class Visual Studio integration
ReadyRoll adds a new project type to Visual Studio. Your database changes live in the same solution as your application code.
Without leaving Visual Studio, you can pick up and edit scripts from other team members. The version control system you’re connected to via Visual Studio handles merging for you, and you can even kick off builds.
Supports build and release tools, including Octopus Deploy
Trigger builds whenever you commit, and use the build artifacts to deploy changes to all your environments.
ReadyRoll also comes with built-in support for Octopus Deploy’s OctoPack. You can use Octopus variables in your scripts to configure how you deploy your changes to each environment.
Avoid 'last one in wins' scenarios
Enable Programmable Objects in your project to source control stored procedures, triggers, views, and functions as individual T-SQL files.
This means when you and your colleagues make changes to these files, your usual version control system conflict resolution process applies. When a developer attempts to check in changes, they’ll always be prompted to incorporate other changes first, rather than overwriting them.
Helps with DevOps, team collaboration, and agility
ReadyRoll brings Dev and Ops together. It moves the review of changes into development, so bugs are caught early.
Developers and DBAs can join forces to apply and test fixes early on, when it’s still cheap.
You'll need one license for each developer using ReadyRoll. You don't need a special license to perform unattended builds or deployments with tools like TeamCity, TFS, Jenkins, or Octopus Deploy
Support & upgrades
One year of support & upgrades is included as standard, but you can extend your coverage for up to three years. You'll receive:
- Free upgrades: when we release a new major version of your software, you'll get it for free.
- Full support: if you hit any problems, you can speak to a dedicated product support engineer by email, forum, live chat, or phone – whichever is easiest for you.
