Data Management Is Hard
Applications and databases are big and getting bigger. The typical organization manages 8 to 10 copies of a database for development, QA, reporting, and other project needs. Getting the right data to the right team can takes week or months, with most of the time and expense in people and process. Environment and data requests generally start with managers and committees for approval, then sort through prioritization and scheduling, and finally consume hours of low-value, painstaking work and coordination from DBAs, IT admins, and storage admins. The sum of these delays lead to high project costs, schedule overruns, quality gaps, and frustration for developers, QA engineers, and users alike.
Delphix Unlocks Your Data
Delphix delivers the right data to the right team at the right time, with an enterprise-class agile data platform. By virtualizing Oracle and Microsoft databases, Delphix quickly delivers databases for development, testing, and reporting needs — at a fraction of physical costs and complexity. With Delphix, DBAs no longer waste time making copies, analysts have current data to drive business decisions, developers get the right version of a database for their projects, and QA engineers can test on fresh data or reset data in minutes after test runs. Stop waiting for data. Start using data to drive value.
Delphix overcomes organization, process, and location bottlenecks with a comprehensive data platform. Applications reside across datacenter locations, functional divisions, and on a variety of platforms and systems, with developers and contractors often working in remote locations. Delphix non-invasively and efficiently syncs data across locations (even across the WAN), can distribute data in hub and spoke configurations, works with any storage, runs in private or public clouds, and supports Oracle and Microsoft SQL databases and data warehouses across all major platforms. By providing the proper roles, functions, and privileges, Delphix provides a set of interfaces to deliver self-service data control for analysts, developers, and QA engineers, improving data delivery times by 10x, and project efficiency by 50%, for enterprise applications.
Drive Systems Utilization
With fast data delivery, database virtualization, and in-memory virtualization, Delphix drives improved utilization of hardware and software systems for application projects. Application and database servers often sit idle for months, waiting on data delivery for a test run, and then sit idle again until the next use. With fast data delivery, Delphix compresses test cycles by 10x, often improving total systems utilization by 50 to 90%. Databases often consume 8 to 10x logical capacity for projects, with physical allocations up to 5x logical requirements due to capacity reserved for growth, over-allocation for performance, fractional capacity that cannot be shared, and RAID for data protection. By sharing data blocks across all environments, Delphix eliminates 90% of logical and physical storage requirements. In addition, with in-memory virtualization, Delphix provides like-physical performance for an average of 20 virtual databases in the space of a single physical copy. Imagine finding 20x the capacity and value in existing application environments. With Delphix, superior utilization is the new reality.
