Delphix has announced the availability of the Delphix Dynamic Data Platform (DDDP) leveraging Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS). Building on the long-standing relationship between Delphix and Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), this innovative solution will provide cloud development teams at global enterprises with the fast, secure data they need to bring cloud-native applications to market with the speed required to win in today’s Digital Economy.

According to PWC’s 2018 “Innovation Benchmark” report, nearly three-quarters of businesses say they are being out-innovated by competitors. Applications are rapidly becoming more complex, intelligent, and data-intensive, leaving companies struggling with legacy data infrastructure, unable to use it to deliver innovation that keeps pace with ever-changing consumer demands.

Development teams need easy access to data in on-demand cloud environments, but operations are mired in manual tasks like database provisioning and data redaction - forcing development teams to wait days or weeks for data. As these organizations migrate more workloads to the cloud, they are faced with the painful reality that their data can’t move at the speed enabled by the cloud. The explosion of demand required to support a data-driven enterprise creates intense friction with the ever-increasing cost, complexity, and risk of managing, distributing, and securing that data.

"Many of our customers trust Amazon RDS to manage their databases at scale,” said Anurag Gupta, Vice President, Analytics, Aurora, and RDS, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “By working with Delphix, we can not only make database management easier for enterprises, but also provide the performance enhancements these organizations need to accelerate mission-critical initiatives and win in their respective markets."

Amazon RDS was created to simplify this process, enabling teams to quickly and easily create new production environments, as needed, in a scalable and manageable manner. The Delphix Dynamic Data Platform was created to allow for ready access to data in non-production development and test environments so teams can move faster at lower cost, without compromising data privacy. This powerful combination gives customers a solution that can help them deliver continuous innovation to the market quickly and securely, at a fraction of the time and cost.

As part of today’s announcement, the Delphix platform on Amazon RDS offers:

  • High scalability, availability, and manageability of production databases on AWS;
  • On-demand Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) provisioning of production database copies in minutes, bringing the speed and agility of the cloud to databases;
  • Self-service controls to refresh, branch, bookmark, and share so developers can treat data as code, integrated with DevOps tools and the Delphix Automation Framework;
  • Integrated data masking to identify and mitigate risk in downstream environments;
  • Extensible plugins that support Oracle, PostgreSQL, and MySQL -- with more to come.

“Digital transformation initiatives are being undertaken by enterprises to deliver innovative, new experiences to customers faster than ever before. This increased rate of application refresh places dramatically more pressure on developers and the development process,” said Al Gillen, group VP, Software Development and Open Source, IDC. “With the Delphix DataOps platform on Amazon RDS, companies now have a new target platform to host data for development and testing, reducing friction to help development teams accelerate delivery of next-generation applications.”

“As we look to shift more and more workloads to the cloud to bring greater efficiency and agility to the business, governance and managing data for modern software development lifecycle has become one of our top issues as we fully adopt cloud," said Nick Suwyn, Principal Systems Engineer at Choice Hotels. "The Delphix platform helps address the security concerns and provides automated data environments in the cloud to drive faster software innovation."
