Delphix

Delphix is well suited for development and/or testing teams who want to eliminate the wait time for receiving data from production (i.e. non-prod refreshes). Delphix can reduce the time prod refreshes take from days to minutes. Delphix virtualization is also strong for providing the ability to set a bookmark, make data changes/compare results, and rewind to the bookmark enabling automated regression testing. The Delphix Data Masking product works as advertised and is a customizable.From an licensing perspective Delphix has a 3TB minimum so its better suited to enterprise sized databases, the ROI may go down if the db size is small, number of dev/test dbs is small, and/or number of developers and testers is small. If you don't refresh from Prod frequently your storage usage will climb which offsets some of the hard dollar cost benefit.

IDrive

This is an economical way to back up less than 1000 GB of data. It can also back-up mapped drives, so you can do the back-up from a personal computer in addition to the server. Restoring tends to be a bit cumbersome, so this should be used as an emergency function, not regularly. Once I tried to add files from the server to another computer but it didn't work because the other computer didn't have the IDrive installed.

  • The used to send your backed up data overnight on a hard drive (if you needed it). Now, they only have an option to download. I love that you can download your data if you need it. That is great, but I would still love the option to ship an actual hard drive because in some cases there is too much data and downloading it all could take days.
  • The UI could use an update/refresh.
  • If you are not tech-savvy it's not super obvious how to set things up. It would be helpful for some it were simplified in some aspects.

The Delphix support organization is one of the best vendor technology support groups I have ever worked with. We use the premier support model currently and get fast, knowledgeable help and the Customer Success Director helps us find answers to questions on best practices and topics that traditionally fall outside of support.

I have not had to use their tech support. I did call once but luckily figured out what to do while I was on hold so I disconnected. If I really needed them it would have been a very long hold time I suppose.

Alternatives Considered

Delphix

There are many first generation test data management tools that use SQL scripts behind the scenes to create small subsets of data for testing of functional subjects within the database (i.e. Claims or Membership, etc.). Delphix differs by operating at the data block level on disk, sitting between the db engine (Oracle, SQL, etc.) and the physical storage. This allows Delphix to provide full size virtual databases for the cost of not much more than enough storage for a single prod sized copy. Intelligent block sharing also enables full db refreshes and rewinds in minutes, not hours or days, all without having to maintain any schema relationship information which is required in first-gen TDM tools.Delphix does not perform any SQL functions so its not for extract, transform, load or creating smaller subset databases. We figured why subset the data if we can get a full virtual copy for no additional cost!

Backblaze is easier to set up, but it's not the better solution for me. I need to be able to backup to multiple locations. Backblaze didn't offer a way to do backups to an external HD. Backblaze didn't offer versioning when I picked iDrive. Backblaze wasn't able to throttle upload and download speeds which would slow things down when I have to deliver files to clients online.

Return on Investment

Delphix

  • Positive ROI on the first year.
  • Low TCO as really easy to use and manage.
  • Avoid technology vendor lock in.
  • Avoid technology difficulties to manage data, one ingested Delphix is on charge.

IDrive

  • iDrive has saved us money as their pricing structure is fair and they allow multiple devices to be backed up under the same account - where others do not.
  • iDrive has saved us time as we no longer have to manually back up and sync files on our computers to external drives.
  • iDrive has lessened the burden of stress. We no longer worry that we may lose critical data that can no longer be recovered.
