    This update covers new offerings, features, and functionality changes delivered in August. 

    Three Key Highlights

    • Continuous Data now supports using on-premises object storage arrays, enabling dramatically lower-cost operations. 

    • Continuous Compliance now has new classifiers to detect additional sensitive data, including full name, IP address, and age.

    • Replication failback may now be used in Continuous Data to test and recover from failover scenarios.

    Continuous Data

    • Elastic Data: We’ve rebranded “Cloud Engines” to “Elastic Data.” Continuous Data with Elastic Data allows you to leverage lower-cost object storage and traditional block storage. This dramatically decreases the operational cost of Continuous Data while enabling new use cases like long-term archival and retention. 

    • Private Data Center Elastic Data: Previously, Elastic Data was only available for Continuous Data Engines deployed in AWS (using S3) or Azure (using BLOB storage). We now support deploying Elastic Data with on-premises, S3-compatible object storage arrays.

    • Elastic Data on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure: Elastic Data may now be used in OCI, providing decreased operational costs and new use cases, as mentioned above. 

    • Replication Failback: In the case of a failure on a primary Continuous Data Engine, failover may be used to swap operations to a secondary Engine. Previously, this was a one-time, terminal action. With failback, you may restore operations to the primary engine if the failure has been resolved or if you simply want to test the failover process. 

    • Oracle Staging Push: The Staging Push method of ingestion now supports point-in-time provisioning of data.  

    • IBM Db2: SSL/TLS connections are now supported with HADR dSources.

    • MySQL/Linux: There is now guidance for upgrading Source, Staging, and Target environments from MySQL 5.7 to v8.0. In addition, new guardrails have been introduced to prevent incompatible refresh and rollback operations. 

    • PostgreSQL: All RHEL v8.x operating systems are now supported. In addition, new protections have been introduced to prevent accidental modification of parameters via VDB Config Template configuration.

    • SAP HANA: VDB provisioning has been improved in scenarios when SAP HANA services “scriptserver” and others are missing volume information.

    • Support for Adoptium Java: By default, the Continuous Data Engine will push the Adoptium OpenJDK to connected environments. In addition to this, you can provide your own Oracle Java should you wish. Now, you also can provide your own Adoptium JDK.

    • ESXi 8.0 U1: Continuous Data may now be run on VMware ESXi 8.0 U1.

    Continuous Compliance

    • Updated Classifiers: We’ve added a new tranche of classifiers to discover additional sensitive data. These new classifiers include elements like medical record number, full name, age, and IP address. We have also improved several existing classifiers to better discover sensitive information, including credit card and bank account numbers.  

    • Password Vault for IBM Db2 on LUW, iSeries, and z/OS: Supported password vaults may now be used with Db2 databases on LUW, iSeries, and z/OS systems.

    • Updated User Experience: We continue overhauling the user interface to provide better utility, scalability, and stability. In this release, we’ve updated the inventory page for fixed-length and delimited file types and the file format settings page.

    • FTP Support for Mainframe MVS Storage: The Compliance Engine now offers enhanced functionality with FTP support, enabling direct access to the mainframe MVS storage environment.

    • Data Discovery and Authentication Support: Automated Sensitive Data Discovery now supports OAuth for Salesforce or Kerberos for Oracle Database, Microsoft SQL Server, and SAP ASE.

    • ESXi 8.0 U1: Continuous Compliance may now be run on VMware ESXi 8.0 U1.

    Hyperscale Compliance

    • Delimited Files Connector: You can now use Hyperscale Compliance to mask collections of delimited files of your choice. This connector allows you to bring the horizontal, high-speed masking of Hyperscale Compliance to data outside of end-to-end supported database types. 

    Compliance Services for Salesforce

    • Data Type Prefiltering: We have introduced data types on the rulesets page, enabling you to build a correct ruleset based on the datatype and identify non-maskable fields.

    • Large Table Optimization (Beta): Additional optimizations to better support the masking of large tables are now available. Data updates start sooner, no longer waiting for data reads to complete. This, paired with concurrent reads and writes, boosts total masking performance.

    Compliance Services for Azure

    • Support for Azure Private Link: You can now access DCS for Azure over a private endpoint in your virtual network, avoiding exposure to the public internet.

    • (Beta) Automatic Sensitive Data Discovery as a Service: This beta offering will allow you to profile and mask data in a single Azure Data Factory pipeline or split these into two separate pipelines depending on the desired review workflow. If interested, please contact
