Got loads of old databases clogging up your company's storage?

Let us hoover up that old Oracle info, pleads CEO

Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

Delphix is a start-up whose software technology effectively makes a copy of a database, such as Oracle 10, and then presents virtualised instances of it for test and development, recovery or any other purpose. It's generally thought there can be 10, possibly 20 or even more copies of production databases scattered throughout large enterprises, each consuming storage resources.

Delphix makes one copy and presents virtualised instances when needed, thereby making fewer demands on a business's storage resources and provisioning a new copy instance much more quickly than a full database copy operation. It provides rollback and recovery of critical databases without restoring from backups or tapes; up-to-the-second synchronisation of multiple databases located in different geographies; and enables simplified migration of databases across versions and operating systems.

The start-up has just announced Delphix 3.0 – which now supports Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) and Microsoft's SQL Server, giving it access to around 66 per cent of the global relational database market according to Gartner Group stats. It says: "Customers can quickly create virtual copies of Oracle RAC databases with full functionality for faster and more accurate application testing." The same goes for SQL Server. The company says: "Delphix 3.0 can be … integrated into existing management tools, such as system monitoring, runbook automation and other widely used operational tools."

A canned quote from Jedidiah Yueh, Delphix CEO, stated: "With our latest release, Delphix can virtualize two-thirds of the relational database market... Whether the data exists in a decade-old version of Oracle, on the newest Exadata machine, or a 30 terabyte Microsoft data warehouse, Delphix can instantly deliver the right data to the right team in minutes - without generating additional hardware cost or operational complexity.”

Buy Delphix 3.0 and save RDB operational time and cost is the message, essentially.

Delphix 3.0 is available today as a software virtual appliance through Delphix's channel. You can find out more here. ®
