We are excited to announce the general availability of DevOps Data Platform 9 and recently released Connector Plugins. Full details are available in the What's New Deck, release notes for Continuous Data, Continuous Compliance, Data Control Tower, Delphix Compliance Services, and the community post.
Note: We have made changes to Continuous Data (Virtualization) and Continuous Compliance (Masking) releases for 2023. There is no change to the existing support window–releases are supported for 18 months from general availability, followed by extended support for an additional 18 months. Deprecation and product end-of-life policies will remain unchanged. This document provides our full product lifecycle policies.
Engine releases after 6.0.17 increment as 7, 8, 9, and so on. This is to reflect that every release goes through the same quality testing and regression cycle.
In February, with DevOps Data Platform 8, we started monthly releases of Continuous Data and Continuous Compliance engines.
Automatic Sensitive Data Discovery (ASDD) Classifiers: Classifiers improve our ability to automatically discover sensitive information and accurately recommend masking algorithms. It combines context from column names, metadata and data sampling to infer data type. This update adds additional classifiers for identifying email addresses, English first names, English surnames, U.S. cities, U.S. states, U.S. zip codes, and zip+4 codes. With ASDD Classifiers, organizations can easily mask new data sources for downstream teams to quickly start working with compliant data.
Profiler UI with Classifiers: This release updates the Profiler UI making it easier to manage Profile Sets and Search-Type Expressions and adds a new view for configuring ASDD Classifiers.
Audit UI: This release adds many improvements to the audit user interface such as inline filters, sorting, infinite scroll, tooltips, accessibility support and more.
Hyperscale Compliance 6: The latest update includes multiple performance optimizations for Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle masking jobs.
Export an Oracle VDB or a VPDB to a Physical Oracle ASM or Exadata Database: This feature enables you to export data from an Oracle Virtual database (VDB) or a Multi-Tenant (MT) VPDB to a physical Oracle database that uses Automatic Storage Management (ASM). This feature is especially useful for Oracle target environments running on Exadata or ExaCC systems
Auto-Config Inheritance for MS SQL: Following a SQL Server VDB Provision, Refresh, or Rewind operation, several database properties are automatically inherited from the target SQL Server database instance (default behavior today). While this is desired in many non-production use cases, it is also a common requirement for a VDB to match the source database properties; this requires a manual or scripted edit operation post-VDB provisioning, which can be time-consuming.
This feature provides the option to inherit the source database properties automatically upon VDB provisioning, refresh or rewind operation to exactly match the source database.
SQL Command Encrypted Connections
We now support leveraging an encrypted network connection via SQLCMD to SQL Server Availability Group Sources.
Data Connector Updates:
SAP HANA: The v6.3 connector adds source sizing support that enables consumption estimations and stability improvements.
PostgreSQL: The v3.2 connector speeds up data ingestion and source creation times in addition to enabling additional monitoring and logging capabilities in the UI.
MySQL on Linux: The v3.0 connector adds support for Percona MySQL v5.7.
VMWare ended support for ESXi 6.0 in March 2022. In an effort to support our customers on their ESXi upgrade plans, we kept testing ESXi 6.0 until the Delphix 8.0 release. ESXi 6.0 is not supported from Delphix 9.0 onward.
DCS for CRM: The latest update to Delphix Compliance Services for CRM adds the following new features:
Automatic ruleset filtering now selects only data types that support updates to be masked.
A new serial masking mode ensures Salesforce tables with row-locking constraints are accurately masked.
The updated package manager gives teams the option to disable metadata packages for all objects before running masking jobs to prevent validation errors on non-masked tables.
DCS for Azure Beta: Delphix Compliance Services for Azure is our new SaaS service that enables Delphix masking within the ETL tools available in the Microsoft Intelligent Data Platform. Teams are able to quickly leverage any of the connectors in Azure Data Factory or Azure Synapse pipelines to call Delphix masking APIs within their cloud data pipelines. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more and join the beta.
Delphix DevOps Data Platform 9 is immediately available to download for new installs. Images in Cloud Marketplaces may trail the release by up to two weeks. Please contact Delphix Support if you need assistance with upgrades.
