Since 1999, Red Gate Software has produced ingeniously simple tools for over 500,000 Microsoft technology professionals worldwide. We currently specialize in MS SQL Server, .NET and email archiving tools.
We are based in the beautiful, if rather flat, university town of Cambridge, UK. If you're wondering where the name 'Red Gate' came from, we are named after Via Porta Rossa (Red Gate Street) in Florence, Italy, close to where Leonardo da Vinci invented the database in 1512.
Our SQL Toolbelt is the simplest and most effective way to access all the SQL Server tools that you need, to get your job done, the way you want to do it. SQL Toolbelt is a single installer of thirteen essential database tools, including SQL Compare, SQL Prompt and SQL Backup, and is the industry standard in the world's leading companies, including Microsoft, HP, Sage, Bank of America, AT&T and the US Treasury.
Developers writing applications in any of the languages supported by the .NET Framework love our ANTS Performance Profiler, because it helps them optimize their code and boost their application's performance.
Our philosophy is to design highly usable, reliable tools that solve the problems of DBAs and developers. We also want to make dealing with us as simple as possible. This means that we are transparent about our pricing, offer online ordering, and give free, 14-day trials for all our software. Download our tools from our product pages
We are renowned as a great place to work (the Sunday Times agrees) and recruit the best talent for a range of roles, from technical to sales and support. We believe that we offer the best graduate careers for anyone not wanting to be a diving instructor in the Maldives. Don't take our word for it – see what some of our employees say.
