Delphix enables us to support improve development processes and reducing development cycles by providing self-service solutions. We have been using Delphix as an Endpoint Backup Solution to enhance development velocity by eliminating data friction by speeding up database refresh times from days to minutes, lowering storage costs while creating a secure data set. It has enhanced the efficiencies of my entire team.
  • Delphix has been giving me an edge by allowing me to push test data management capabilities to the developer/tester empowering them to be their own data operator to bookmark, rewind, and refresh data as needed.
  • My data stays protected with security policies and regulatory compliance.
  • Delphix is also a great tool as it can move and manage data from any premises, cloud, or environment.
  • Delphix is a hefty solution for virtualization, but it is not strong enough for the creation of data, so we have to use another platform when it comes to creating new data.
  • Moreover, Delphix web pages do not support AD security groups which eventually results in hassle if you have a large number of users to create and maintain passwords.
Delphix is more suited for non-production environment management that integrates many technologies in a single data container with all privacy regulations regarding cloud migrations so you can replicate data across them. Delphix is more appropriate for testing teams who want to mitigate the wait time for receiving data from production. Delphix can lessen the time prod refreshes take from days to minutes.

When I first met Delphix 5 years ago, I was struggling with storage consumption for non-productive environments so I was looking for a data virtualization product. I make POCs and document all the use cases of the product across the organization with the cost reduction of new environments, people productivity, and costs improvements. Delphix addresses all my problems and multiple technical problems also.
  • Storage consumption reduction.
  • Data environments self service for consumers.
  • Excellent documentation online.
  • Great community for support you.
  • Great company with great people working on it.
  • No cons
Delphix is well suited for non-production environment management, integrating multiple technologies in one data pod or data container, data masking to be compliance with all privacy regulations regarding data, data centers or cloud migrations as you can replicate data across them, and backups and recovery, as it has a snapshot policy of the virtual DBS and source DBS.
Delphix support and community support is the best.

We use Delphix to increase development velocity by removing data friction by speeding up database refresh times from days to minutes, lowering storage cost, while creating a secure data set. Delphix is easy to use in tools like Jenkins to setup automated regression testing. Delphix allows you to push test data management capabilities to the developer/tester empowering them to be their own data operator to bookmark, rewind, refresh data as needed.
  • Fast refresh of production data to non-production environments.
  • Easy to automate tasks in Delphix (Bookmark, Rewind, Refresh, etc.) and build pipelines in tools like Jenkins. Enables CI/CD push button build of new virtual database and also the ability to automate regression testing scenarios as well as provide a simple way to expose self-service to developers & testers.
  • The staff at Delphix are knowledgeable and take a genuine interest in helping their customers succeed. The support organization is among the best I've seen.
  • Delphix is good at notifying customers of bugs & features striking a good balance on sending the right amount and type of communication.
  • Delphix is always improving the product and fixing any bugs quickly and transparently.
  • Delphix Data Masking product works as described and allows for multiple streams of masking concurrently to complete masking faster.
  • User/PWD management in the Delphix Self-Service web page does not support LDAP nor AD security groups. This creates a hassle if you have a large number of self-service users to create and maintain passwords for. The fix for this is supposed to be the new Central Management tool. We just ended up creating jobs in Jenkins (which supports groups) using the python-examples scripts from the Delphix Github.
  • Reporting on storage and performing capacity planning is not easy when running many (20+) virtual databases. The latest release and new Central Management tool are both supposed to storage reporting much better.
  • Delphix Data Masking tool could handle masking of complex flat files better. We ended up creating a tagger and un-tagger to add/remove metadata to enable Delphix masking to be able to mask our complex flat file. Would have been nice if that capability was already built into the masking tool.
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.
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.

We are using Delphix in our division of the company. We are using Delphix to do quick restores from the production database so that we can get the latest data to pre-prod as fast as possible. We are also using the bookmark feature so we can test new database code, with a quick way to go back to the starting point in case the latest code rouge in the database.
  • Bookmarking
  • Quick Restore from production
  • Disk performance can be improved
  • Error handling can be better
If you have multiple pre-prod databases that you have to keep up to date with the latest production data, Delphix would be a good fit for that. It will help speed up the process.
Delphix support could be a little better. It seems sometimes we bounce through support engineers until we get one that understands our issues and know how to fix it.
