On October 29, 2015 Delphix held its first Sync Event, a Delphix Technical User Group meeting, the goal of which is to share information, network, and collaborate. The inaugural event was the annual conference in San Francisco on the last day of Oracle OpenWorld. In addition to the annual conference, we are excited to start working on regional events across the globe.

On October 29, 2015 Delphix held its first Sync Event, a Delphix Technical User Group meeting, the goal of which is to share information, network, and collaborate. The inaugural event was the annual conference in San Francisco on the last day of Oracle OpenWorld. In addition to the annual conference, we are excited to start working on regional events across the globe. About 40 customers and Delphix employees attended and actively participated. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive for all the talks and sessions. We put emphasis on technical talks and topics not usually discussed in a generic Delphix presentation and this was well received. Adam Leventhal also blogged about his perspective on Delphix Sync. The Agenda:

  • Delphix history and culture, Adam Leventhal
  • Performance Best Practices, Vinay Srihari
  • McGraw Hill Continuous Integration Use Case
  • Lightning Talks
    • US Foods - "We cloned a 6TB prod DB in 15 minutes" with Delphix
    • StubHub - Went from 3 weeks to 20 minutes to provision a new environment
    • XPP overview - Why it's difficult and how Delphix makes it easier
  • Roadmap Discussion
  • Breakout sessions on the following topics:
    • Transformations and Masking
    • Delphix and DevOps with Jenkins Plug-in Demo
    • Next Generation UI
    • Open QA

What’s next? Attendees requested deep dive sessions on various topics such as Masking. Sync attendees and members will receive notification of these web based meetings as well as live meetings in their local areas as they get scheduled.
