    Announcing Delphix 6.0.15 & More!

    We are excited to announce the general availability of Delphix 6.0.15 and other recently delivered features in June and July 2022. Full details are available in the What's New Deck for 6.0.15 , release notes for Continuous Data (virtualization) & Continuous Compliance (masking), and the community post.

    Note: We have updated Delphix product names- virtualization will be referred to as "Continuous Data" and masking becomes "Continuous Compliance." Expect to see these changes reflected in product UI and supporting content.   

    Featured Releases

    DevOps Integrations

    Data Control Tower 2.0

    We are excited to announce that Data Control Tower (DCT) 2.0 is now Generally Available. DCT helps organizations accelerate application development and improve code quality by automating ephemeral data delivery across multi-cloud CI/CD pipelines through a unified API control plane. Major new features include tagging, VDB groups, reports, and a new Terraform integration.

    SAP Accelerator

    Compliance Accelerator for SAP

    Delphix now has a complete Continuous Compliance solution for ERP Central Component (ECC) & S/4HANA with the recent Select Connector for SAP update. This includes sensitive data discovery and masking (scrambling) for SAP Core, Finance, and HR modules. Masking works with both SAP HANA 2.0 and Oracle backends. 

    Data Control Tower

    DevOps Automation: DCT provides a unified control plane for enterprise data, using modern APIs. DCT 2.0 focuses on Continuous Data and includes the ability to create, control, and version virtual databases, environments, and bookmarks.

    Terraform Provider: Terraform has become the de facto standard for managing cloud infrastructure in many enterprises. Using the Terraform Provider for Delphix, organizations can now ephemerally deploy data-as-code alongside infrastructure-as-code natively in Terraform

    VDB Groups: Test Data Management (TDM) often requires multiple data sources deployed from a specific point in time for System Integration Tests (SIT). VDB groups enable point-in-time grouping of VDBs so Dev/Test teams can easily bookmark, refresh, share, rewind, and share synchronized test data from multiple systems.

    Object Tagging: Delphix objects can now be logically grouped with user-defined key-value tags to layer context and attributes. This enables teams to cluster Delphix objects by ownership, function, application, region, or any unique tag. 

    Reporting: There are three new reports in DCT 2.0: virtualization storage utilization, VDB inventory, and dSource inventory to help teams better manage resources. Reports are generated on-demand through APIs or scheduled as an email.

    Continuous Compliance

    Hyperscale Compliance for Oracle: Hyperscale Compliance 3.0 enables organizations to mask massive datasets using native bulk data operations and parallel masking across multiple engines. The Hyperscale Orchestrator works by dividing masking jobs for Oracle databases with billions of rows across distributed Continuous Compliance Engines for significantly faster data compliance. 

    JSON File Masking: This update introduces support for JSON file masking, a popular human-readable data exchange format. Teams can leverage Delphix's existing library of pre-built algorithms to mask sensitive information. 

    Segmented Mapping Algorithm V2: We have enhanced the segment mapping algorithm for improved performance, extensibility, security, and portability. It will produce new masking results from the legacy algorithm. Segmented Mapping allows you to create unique masked values by dividing data into segments that are masked piecewise.

    Numeric Expression Algorithm: The new algorithm enables formula transformations to values. Teams can run common math operators to scale or shift numbers. 

    EOL of Legacy Algorithms & Mapplets: Legacy algorithms and mapplets are EOL in 6.0.15.

    Continuous Data

    Oracle MT TDE for System Tablespaces: 6.0.15 enables system tablespaces on Oracle Virtual Databases to be encrypted using transparent data encryption (TDE). Oracle system tables store database table information, index, sequences, and other objects. Encrypting system tables in non-prod environments enforces security controls and prevents database index and metadata tampering. 

    Staging Push for Postgres: Staging push enables organizations to push data into Delphix without having to directly query production instances. With staging push, teams can use 3rd party solutions to recover data to staging instances that automatically sync to the Delphix DevOps Data Platform. This also enables logical replication workflows (common for PaaS sources) and the use of tools like pgbackrest. 

    Staging Push for IBM Db2 HADR: Staging push is now available for IBM Db2 in a High Availability Disaster Recovery (HADR) configuration. This gives teams an alternative way to sync data into the Delphix DevOps Data Platform. 

    Cache Analysis for Cloud Engines: We have added a UI for teams to better understand and optimize Delphix Cloud Engine Cache sizes to meet required cost-performance levels for VDBs. 

    Storage Device Removal UI: You can now remove disks on engines backed by block storage through the UI in addition to the CLI in 6.0.15. 

    Zero Trust for Postgres: 6.0.15 supports custom "least privilege" OS user roles to be assigned to the "Delphix_OS" user to perform virtualization operations from Postgres sources.

    Certifications: Postgres 13 on SUSE 15, Postgres 14 on RHEL 8.5, and Oracle EBS with TDE for Oracle 19C. 

    Multi-Cloud Applications

    Salesforce Package Management: 6.0.15 expands the list of Salesforce packages that can be enabled/disabled to ensure consistent masking operations. Duplicate & matching rules, required & unique constraints, picklists, and filters can now be selected in both the package manager plugin and the rehearsal tool. 

    OAuth 2.0 for Salesforce Masking: We have added OAuth 2.0 connections to our Salesforce Data Protection solution, augmenting our existing support for using Username/Password and Security Tokens.

    CockroachDB: CockroachDB is a highly scalable, distributed SQL database with high fault tolerance designed for modern cloud applications. Delphix now has a Select Connector for CockroachDB that enables data to be used in the Delphix DevOps Data Platform. Teams can now ephemerally deploy compliant test data from CockroachDB to non-prod environments. 

    For a complete list of features and fixes, please see the release notes. If you have questions about Delphix 6.0.15, please visit our community site and our support site.  Delphix 6.0.15 is immediately available to download for new installs and images in Cloud Marketplaces may trail the release by up to two weeks. Please contact Delphix Support if you need assistance with upgrades.
