Cambridge UK, Monday 27 February – Redgate Software today released its long awaited database provisioning tool, SQL Clone, which allows copies of SQL Server databases and backups to be created in seconds, using only around 40MB of disk space per instance.
The release directly addresses – and resolves – the two big concerns Database Administrators (DBAs) face when provisioning copies of databases or backups for use in test or development environments.
Firstly, it can take hours to duplicate a large database. In the recent SQL Server Database Provisioning Survey, 28% of respondents were provisioning databases daily, and 54% were provisioning weekly or more often. A lot of time is therefore expected to be saved for DBAs.
Secondly, there is the disk space issue. Quite simply, multiple copies of databases or backups have to be stored somewhere and with the average database now often 1TB or more in size, there are capacity concerns.
WAKEFIELD, MA (February 22, 2017) - SDL (LSE:SDL) is pleased to announce that it has pledged support to help humanitarian translations reach more people around the world by continuing gold sponsorship of Translators without Borders.
Translators without Borders (TWB) strives to provide people access to vital, often life-saving, information in their own language by connecting non-profit organizations with a community of professional translators; building local language translation capacity; and raising awareness of language barriers. Since 2011, TWB has translated over 40 million words in over 190 language pairs in the areas of crisis relief, health and education. The organization has responded to urgent crises by using its Words of Relief model, working with partners, to provide vital information in the appropriate languages to those affected by the European refugee crisis, the Ebola crisis and the Nepal earthquake. Words of Relief ensures better communications with communities when crisis response aid workers and affected populations do not speak the same language.
Leading software developer VXL Software has launched the latest version of its device- management suite, Fusion EMM, which can now manage not only mobile devices but also desktop and laptop PCs, servers and network-connected devices.
VXL Software has released the latest version of its market-leading device-management suite, Fusion EMM. Previously aimed solely at mobile devices, Fusion EMM now incorporates the key functionality of its sister product, Fusion UDM Premium – including the ability to manage PCs, servers and network-connected devices.
According to VXL’s VP of worldwide sales, Frank Noon, this not only makes life easier for customers, it also significantly reduces costs. “The latest Fusion EMM is really two products in one,” says Noon, “mobile-device manager and fixed-device manager. Previously, this required two servers – with two sets of server licensing costs. Building the desktop-management capabilities of Fusion UDM Premium into Fusion EMM halves those costs, because only one server is needed.”

20 January 2017 - Maidenhead, U.K. - SDL plc (“SDL”; LSE: SDL), the global innovator in language translation technology, services and content management, provides an update on trading performance for the year ended 31 December 2016 based on unaudited results.
Continuing Operations revenue and PBTA (profit before taxation, amortisation of intangible assets and one-off costs) are both expected to be slightly ahead of market expectations.
Whilst there has been some foreign exchange tailwind at the top line, because a large proportion of our costs are denominated in foreign currencies, the PBTA margin % is anticipated to be in line with market expectations.
Good progress continues to be made in executing the new strategic plan.
All businesses have performed well, with strengthened recurring and repeat revenues evidenced. The 2016 outcome represents a sound underlying performance, underpinned by SDL’s strong customer relationships, delivered during a period of ongoing investment, organisational change and transition.
