Data is the Biggest Constraint in Data Center Migrations
Migrate applications to new data centers 50% faster without disrupting current projects
Migrating Apps to New Data Centers Is Complex, Slow, and Risky
Wrangling 10’s of TBs of data across networks and sites is a manual, ticket-based process that slows both migration and ongoing operations. Teams executing migrations encompassing application lift/shift, consolidation, or replatforming, have a series of tasks to accomplish and are stuck waiting for data at every turn.
Data Blocks Every Stage of the Migration Process
Migration teams wait for test environments that are often loaded with low-quality data: aging data moved once at the beginning of the project, subsetted data, and misaligned data from backups on different timelines for each application.
Migrations are further complicated by:
Data dependencies and entanglements across systems complicate testing and cutover processes
Data center migration projects require migrating hundreds or thousands of applications, which may contain PBs of data
Sensitive data such as PII must be extracted from the safe production zone and loaded into validation environments where the controls are often less rigorous
Accelerate and De-Risk All Phases of Data Center Migration
Delphix enables teams to migrate production applications faster and safer. Use APIs to continuously sync production data to the new data center. Then provision, clean up, integrate, and version data to drive application validation, integration testing, rehearsals, and cutover.
Virtualization for Migration
The Delphix Data Platform transforms migration projects:
Capture a complete data timeline and easily provision a validation environment to any point in time - useful for archiving the pre-migrated state
Migration teams can get the data they need without filing tickets and waiting for the IT ops admins to respond
Run as many validation environments as you need for each application, without consuming any more storage
With change data capture your testing environments can always be populated with the latest data
Shift to the forward state with a thin migration
Eliminate the need to migrate 90% of environments, reducing timeline and cost while allowing current projects to continue:
Non-disruptively sync production data to an environment in the new data center
Provision virtual databases based on the new environment to rebuild non-production, instead of migrating it
Use virtual data to fuel migration testing and rehearsal, then ongoing development work
Increase testing and rehearsal capacity
Using virtual data environments, migration teams can run 10x more validation runs and rehearsals to reduce risk for cutover and go-live. And because teams can create parallel environments without expanding testing infrastructure, they can test batches of migrated apps to accelerate testing.
Prepare for contingencies
Mitigate risk of downtime and reduce mean time to recovery. By leveraging Delphix’s data capture and efficient storage of a fine-grained data history, teams can preserve data and revert to any point in time prior to data loss or corruption.
Secure the migration testing environments
Enable migration teams to do all their work with anonymized data to eliminate breach and compliance risks.
Automatically identify sensitive data
Determine the appropriate algorithms for masking
Mask data while preserving realism and referential integrity
