Prakash, 30% is an average. Some of our customers are far less than 30%. It really all depends what is in your dSource.  You have a 52% foot print on your dSource. But, despite the great storage savings on the dSource, it is not one of the main benefits of Delphix. What is the size of your virtual databases of this dSource and how long does the VDB creation take?

Yeah, it is great! Now you see why I said it didn't matter that the dSource was 30 or 50%. :)
