Masking with Delphix (where duplicate blocks are shared making a new copy almost free storage wise and almost instantaneous) has 4 big advantages
- Instant data, no copying
- Ease of Use
- Consistent across data centers and databases vendors
Virtual Data Masking
Delphix masking and virtualization is the most advanced solution in the market place, because Delphix doesn’t provision data. Instead of provisioning data, Delphix sets up pointers back to existing data for a new clone. When that (more...)
Someone just asked on the Delphix Forums whether they could test Delphix replication with the free version of Delphix called Delphix Express.
I’d never tried, so I sat down to try and was amazed at how easy it was.
I created twoDelphix Express installations.
On one engine, the source engine, (http://172.16.103.16/) I linked to an Oracle 184.108.40.206 database on Solaris Sparc called “yesky”.
On that same engine I (more...)

I’ve received a number of inquiries lately about the support of DB2 on Delphix and yes, Delphix 5.0 now supports full automation of virtual data for DB2. With the addition of DB2, Delphix now supports full automation of virtual data on all three of the major enterprise databases
as well as Sybase, MySQL and Postgres.
For more information on DB2 in Delphix 5.0 see

- Legacy : FC is becoming legacy like Cobal and the Mainframe. Not going way, but not what you want to invest in.
- Throughput : FC throughput has fallen behind NFS and is the gap is only widening.
- Price : FC is much (more...)

In my last blog I talked about trying out Jenkins. In this blog post I want to talk about the new Jenkins plugin for Delphix.
Delphix plugin is easy to add. Just navigate to “Manage Jenkins” in the top left
Then click on “Manage Plugins”
Then type in “delphix” in the search bar and then click on the “Delphix Jenkins plugin” to install
Now we can access Delphix APIs through the Jenkins (more...)
Jenkins seems to be the top code build, integration and QA automation tool to support continuous delivery.
Jenkins allows me to kick of jobs on a schedule or ofter certain events and Jenkins will keep track of the status of the jobs and the results.
To get Jenkins installed, I read wiki.jenkins-ci.org and then read biouno.org to try my first Jenkins example.
I installed Jenkins on one of the VMs from the “landshark” demo environment for (more...)
