Delphix Releases Product Addressing $50 Billion Data Center Modernization Market

Delphix Modernization Engine to Help Organizations Save Billions, Years of Work

Menlo Park, CA -- March 11, 2014 - Delphix, the leading provider of Agile Data solutions, today announced that the company has released the Delphix Modernization Engine, a new product designed to reduce the risk and cost associated with data center modernization projects, including data center migrations and consolidations, migrations to the cloud, conversions from Unix to Linux, and application retirement. Today, many private and public-sector organizations estimate that modernization projects will take years and cost tens to hundreds of millions of dollars, while impacting existing operations. As a result, modernization projects often fail, either ending over budget, behind schedule, or reduced in scope, limiting the effectiveness of the investment. Delphix reduces those risks and accelerates project completion by 50% or more.

Built on version 4.0 of the award-winning Agile Data Platform, the Delphix Modernization Engine creates, manages, and archives virtual copies of applications, databases, and files, which accelerates project efforts and ensures preservation of data for legal and regulatory compliance.

"The government source Data.Gov has named 1111 data centers that will have been closed by the end of 2014,1 but according to an article[2 in FCW that's not even half of the new target for 2015 of 2,400 data center closures," said Carl Olofson, Research Vice President of Application Development and Deployment at IDC. "Organizations across the private sector are experiencing the same pressure. Once those data centers begin closing, CIOs will face the immense challenge of transitioning data and entire applications into new centers. This second half of the modernization process is a resource-intensive slog that can quickly drain an organization's IT budget, effectively halting innovation efforts."

The Delphix Modernization Engine builds on Delphix's patented data virtualization technology, which syncs with existing applications and databases, manages versions as they change, and delivers virtual data environments to remote servers in 90% less time and expense. The Modernization Engine adds several new features to the Delphix platform:

  • Application Data Virtualization: The Modernization engine extends Delphix's ability to virtualize enterprise databases and data warehouses to applications and file systems. Applications store data in a range of locations, including application servers, middleware servers, and databases. Binaries, configuration files, and automation scripts are also required to migrate an application successfully. Delphix automatically virtualizes the data across an entire application stack, versions all changes during and after migration, and can provision virtual data environments in minutes to remote servers, either on premise or in private or public clouds--even across bandwidth constrained wide-area networks (WANs). As a result, customers can consolidate or migrate existing systems to modern platforms faster and at dramatically lower cost than previously possible.
  • Live Archive: A major challenge in modernizing applications is the risk of failing a legal or compliance audit after an application has been moved, changed, or retired. Data migration efforts can result in changed, missing, or partial data that can lead to large regulatory fines. As a result, many companies never decommission legacy systems and fail to realize the cost benefits of modernization. The Delphix Modernization Engine preserves Live Archives of applications, databases, data warehouses, associated files, and configuration settings, which can be accessed in minutes to satisfy later audit or compliance demands while taking 10x less space and systems resources to maintain. As part of a governance process, businesses can Live Archive application states just prior to migration efforts or after business events, such as quarter close or notice of litigation hold. As a result, Delphix customers gain the benefits of modernization while dramatically reducing legal and regulatory risks.
  • Unix-to-Linux Conversion: Many organizations have older versions of applications and databases running on legacy Unix-based servers. Migrating applications and databases to modern, x86-based Linux servers can be time consuming and difficult but required if the databases will be moved to public or private clouds built on x86 platforms. Delphix cuts the conversion process by 80%, through its automatic and efficient data transformation technology. As a result, customers can migrate to x86-based clouds in a fraction of the time and cost.

"Our goal at Align is to drive faster innovation cycles for the business," said Sreelakshmi Kolli, VP of IT at Align Technology. "Our upgrade to SharePoint 2013 and SQL Server 2012 required a data migration that would have taken weeks of manpower to stage and move the data. With virtual data environments we were able to complete the data migration and staging phase in hours."

"Businesses accumulate applications on a variety of aging systems over years of operation, which can result in management complexity and a large boat anchor of run-rate expenses," said Jedidiah Yueh, Delphix Founder and CEO. "With Agile Data and our Modernization Engine, IT organizations have an opportunity to dramatically reduce run-rate expenses and convert the savings into innovation, which can make businesses leaner and more competitive. Delphix lifts the data anchor."

Certified on VMware vSphere, the Delphix Modernization Engine operates on vCloud-based public cloud services, SunGard and IBM SoftLayer, as well as private cloud platforms.

Delphix Releases New Data Compliance Capabilities for Salesforce Customers

New solution helps Salesforce customers unlock the strategic value of Salesforce® data while maintaining data privacy compliance

REDWOOD CITY, California, May 13, 2021 -- Delphix, the pioneer in programmable data infrastructure, today announced the availability of new capabilities that can help more than 150,000 Salesforce customers protect data privacy and security, while unlocking the value in Salesforce data across clouds and on premises data centers. 

“Like many companies going through digital transformation while operating in a regulatory environment, we had an imperative to address our compliance risks while driving down our infrastructure costs. Delphix has provided a range of capabilities and solutions that have helped us significantly improve data management across systems, including Salesforce, while realizing cost savings,” said Jay Subbarayan, Senior Software Development Engineer at F5 Networks Inc.

“Companies depend on the data in Salesforce,” said Jedidiah Yueh, Delphix CEO. “But siloed data environments, privacy regulations, and lack of integrated data protection pose a significant governance and management challenge. We provide the only comprehensive solution to solve all three of these data challenges.”

Companies face significant challenges in using Salesforce data:

  • Privacy regulations require data masking and data de-identification in test and sandbox environments. GDPR violations for EU citizen data can cost a company up to 4% in revenues, and CCPA violations for California citizen data can cost $2.5M for every 1,000 records breached. 
  • Data that resides within Salesforce often needs to be made available to application development and analytics environments scattered across public and private clouds and on-premises environments.

“We know that Salesforce data is at the core of enterprise customer relationships. That customer data, however, contains massive amounts of personally identifiable information, leading to high risk. We're excited to be a part of the Salesforce partner ecosystem and bring our market-leading compliance offerings to their customers, enabling fast and compliant use of data,” said Jason Grauel, Delphix VP Product Management.

Delphix’s solution enables enterprises to:

  • Eliminate compliance risk for CRM data in user acceptance test (UAT) environments.
    • Automate masking and de-identification of personal or sensitive information within CRM datasets—without destroying referential integrity and data consistency.
  • Automate data synchronization and provisioning across the multi-cloud.
    • Replicate and provision Salesforce data into integration testing and UAT environments—in private data centers or public clouds.
  • Accelerate integration testing cycles, analytics, and AI/ML projects.
    • Automate data provisioning into environments with fresh, compliant CRM data in minutes, not weeks or months.
  • Avoid high infrastructure costs.
    • Archive data in Delphix to reduce costs.
    • Efficiently store data with industry-leading data deduplication.
    • Schedule or run full and incremental backups on demand.
