Last updated: September 17, 2023

This acknowledgment of Open-Source Software is important, as we power our innovations with open-source software. Moreover, we appreciate open-source collaboration and strongly encourage other organizations to embrace open-source principles.

UpSearch’s data management tools, such as Data Estate Assessment ℠, SQL Server Health Check, SQL Server Status Reports, and Database Integrity and Recovery Tests are built on the foundation of open-source software, which has played a pivotal role in its development and functionality. We want to give credit to the open-source community and recognize the significance of the following software components:
