DBeaver Overview

DBeaver came into the world in 2011 and has been steadily gaining popularity since then. We are proud to state that DBeaver is now one of the most popular database management tools worldwide.

Its audience has exceeded 500,000 users and continues to grow.

We started this project to create a reliable and smart tool that would be handy in the multiplicity of database management activities. Because a good tool is half the battle.

So what is DBeaver like?


With DBeaver you do not need multiple tools to manage various aspects of database management – DBeaver consolidates all of them:

Database Analysis
Convenient tools for the development of visual diagrams of individual database objects and whole schemas, their customization and export as well as metadata management

Data Editing
Simple and intuitive viewing and editing of data, augmented with sorting and filtering functions

SQL Development
A full-featured and fast-working SQL editor for developing, executing, storing, exporting and re-using scripts with data profiling and formatting functions. SQL Editor could become a product of its own intended for use by professional SQL developers but it is a part of DBeaver, and this is great!

Database Administration
A wide range of features for database support and analysis, data export and import, user sessions and locks management, and a lot more

With a beaver`s persistence, we are developing new features and enhancing existing ones to expand and strengthen DBeaver`s capabilities.

Works on All Major Platforms

You can launch DBeaver on all major platforms: Windows, MacOS and most popular versions of Linux – CentOS, Ubuntu, etc. Our installers have all necessary certificates and satisfy security requirements.

Supports Nearly All Databases

Out of the box, DBeaver supports any database that has a JDBC or ODBC driver – that is almost all relational databases and most NoSQL databases: MySQL, PostgreSQL, DB2, Oracle and many others.

Besides JDBC and ODBC, DBeaver supports databases that do not have any standard xDBC driver, for instance Mongo DB, Redis or WMI.

We are constantly working to train DBeaver to work with more databases. The major trend is data science and work with big data, search databases (Solr) and databases in cloud.

Friendly to All User Categories

DBeaver is equally good for professional and amateur database managers because it makes the work on databases and data intuitive, simple, and convenient. With DBeaver, the complex tasks of database analysis and administration turn out to be easier than they might seem at the first glance. DBeaver does not require any special technical knowledge to support your database in up-to-date state and provides help where needed.

And this is what DBeaver`s users think about it:

“I have been using DBeaver since version 4.0 for my courses “Internet and Web Programming” and “Database Management Systems”. DBeaver is certainly an ultimate Universal client which incorporates RDBMS and NoSQL Databases. The GUI is very useful and easy to manipulate all kind of DB queries.
DBeaver is remarkably fast and stable. It loads quickly and responds instantaneously. Especially, It is the only client tool for Apache Cassandra NoSQL Database in market.”

“DBeaver is one of the best free SQL IDE’s I’ve seen. It has a great UI, it’s fast, and the Projects feature is a helpful way of organising your files and related information. If you’re considering using DBeaver for your SQL work, you can’t go wrong with this choice.”
