Use Cases: Delphix and SAP ASE
Deliver ASE data dramatically faster
Delphix connects to SAP ASE backups and syncs with the production source, building a continuous history of data changes. DBAs can provision space-efficient virtual copies from any point in that history in just minutes. Virtual copies behave like physical ones and can be used with replication and mirroring.
Speed development of ASE applications
Agile development methodologies and DevOps require a fast flow of data to dev/test teams. Delphix provisions data copies derived from ASE databases in just minutes, and puts self-service data controls directly into the hands of data consumers: refresh, rewind, branch, and share data at will.
Automatically mask sensitive data
The Delphix platform masks sensitive data values, transforming them into fictitious yet realistic equivalents. This safeguards non-production SAP ASE environments from breach, and ensures compliance with regulations such as HIPAA and GDPR.
Easily move ASE data to cloud environments
Delphix lets migration teams securely and efficiently replicate large amounts of ASE data into private or public cloud environments—without disrupting production operations. For hybrid architectures, Delphix ensures that cloud-based dev/test environments running on SAP ASE stay synchronized with on-prem production sources.
Allocate virtual data copies to maintenance and reporting
Nightly batch processes create scheduling conflicts and put unwanted load on production databases. With Delphix, DBAs can easily spin up space-efficient copies of production and dedicate them to ETL, maintenance jobs or analytics tools.
Swiftly recover from failure
SAP ASE backups are often unwieldy in size, and recovery takes too long or isn't granular enough to prevent costly disruptions. Delphix can retain 30 days of backups in the space of the source because it efficiently compresses data and stores only unique blocks. It also tracks changes down to the second and enables fast recovery from any point in time.
Give ASE users the data they need. Fast.
To link to a production database, the user specifies a staging server that has shared access to a backup with production. This staging host’s instances will be made directly accessible to Delphix via NFS mount.
Delphix takes periodic, compressed snapshots via ZFS that are used as the underlying data to service virtual copies. As production data changes, Delphix ingests ASE transaction logs to maintain a continuous data timeline.
From collected data files and logs, Delphix creates point-in-time copies, sharing common data across all copies. Data files of virtual copies are made accessible via shared NFS mount points. Optionally, Delphix can identify and mask any sensitive data values.
Fully-independent, virtual database copies function like regular physical databases and can be provisioned for development, testing, production support, analytics, reporting, or other use cases.
