I love the fact that DbVisualizer works with all the database systems that I have databases in. It makes life VERY easy for me to go back and forth from MS SQL Server to MariaDB to PostgreSQL to MySQL. AND, I also have options if I have to work with others too!

I use it for MSSQL, MySQL, Pg and sometime sqlite. Its great to have the same tool for all those different database engines. I really like that i can ssh tunnel into my servers and then connect to the database. Its cross-platform support is very nice, my co worker uses windows and i use linux so being able to use the same software helps us.

I use DBVisualizer frequently - practically daily - over several SQL Server databases. As a business analyst, I use it for doing production support, testing software modifications, etc. DB Visualizer is easy to use, does everything I ask of it. Connections are easy to set up and I really like being able to set the color for different connections - to provide a visual cue as to which environment I am working in (production vs test). DB Visualizer has lots of features that I haven't used but would like to explore. I like that DBVis is continually making improvements to the software. show less
