What is in a Data Pod?
Virtual Data Environments
One or more lightweight data environments that provide full access to source data. For example, a data pod may reference multiple databases that can be refreshed to a common point in time in minutes.
Dynamic Data Controls
Self-service data version controls that enable consumers to quickly replace the data within virtual data environments through refresh, branches, bookmarks, sharing, and reset. For example, a QA engineer might find a bug and bookmark the state for a developer to later recreate in their own datapod.
A set of immutable properties defined during the data pod construction process that can control data access and integrate into data governance workflows. For example, a data pod may only be able to access masked data, operate in HIPAA-compliant environments, or be tracked for chargeback to the line of business owner.
