DBrow - Smart Database Browser Now Available in AWS Marketplace
With enterprises moving their applications and databases to Amazon Web Services (AWS), there’s a need for cloud-ready database tools. Improving access to enterprise data can unlock value and boost productivity in IT organizations. Legacy desktop-based database client applications do not meet the needs of today’s agile and distributed IT teams, and are not optimized for deployments on AWS .
DBrow is available in AWS Marketplace as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI). It is a web based database application to query, view, share and visualize data in your databases on Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) (Amazon Aurora, MySQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server and PostgreSQL).
Limitations of Legacy Database Client Tools.
- They are desktop products that need to be installed for each user in the enterprise with additional VPN/Security Group configuration required for connection to the Amazon RDS instances on your AWS Cloud.
- They offer basic row based retrieval of records. Simple row based retrieval is no longer sufficient to handle increasingly complex databases with hundreds of tables. Users end up spending considerable time writing and executing multiple SQL queries before they can get to the data they need.
- No easy support for sharing of queries or results. Users have to manually share SQLs with no way to share a single record and results directly. Knowledge sharing within the enterprise is restricted.
- They require SQL knowledge to query the database. No intuitive ability to search the data or schema for tables or columns.
