Are you a MS SQL developer? Installing a server client tool may help you work more efficiently and seamlessly. But this doesn’t mean that you have to install anothersoftware. There are web-based SQL server client tools you can consider for more flexibility. They can be accessed from any browser, so you do not have to worry about installing any client in every computer you use. You can build SQL queries and perform other tasks anytime and anywhere.
But how can you get started with that kind of MS SQL GUI? Here are some tips to help you with that:
Find a good web-based database management solution
It should be a versatile, all-in-one tool that offers secure access to MS SQL databases. Reputable service providers offer a free trial for their SQL server client tools. Make sure that the trial period covers all the relevant features you can expect from the GUI, so you can determine if the product is indeed what you need.
Get to know the tool
Make sure that it has zero trust data access that lets you access only what you need and that it offers centralized security and auditing so you can gain insights on user activities. Consider a browser-based unified tool for cloud databases and on-premise solutions. Make sure it is developed using Java web technologies, so it can run on any platform.
Know the system requirements
Before you sign up for SQL server client tools, find out what their system requirements are to verify that they can work with your current infrastructure. A good SQL Server GUI supports all the latest operating systems from Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, Unix, and Linux. Make sure it is supported with the freeware Tomcat application server. All modern browsers are supported, such as Chrome, Firefox, IE 8 or higher, Opera, and Safari.
You should also find out the number of people who will use the SQL GUI, so you can be sure that the server has enough capacity for them. For instance, with 25 users, you will need a RAM of 8GB or higher, and 25GB of disk space or more.
Check with the developer
If you have further issues or questions with installing SQL server client tools, the developer must be easily accessible and reliable to offer the support you need.
