Server virtualization transformed the data center, dramatically lowering the costs and resources required to operate business systems. Those benefits have not yet been realized for enterprise databases and the applications that run on those databases. The costs and time required to approve, create, refresh, and recover enterprise databases have major impact on application development and operations. By virtualizing the data within enterprise databases, Delphix, our database management system, eliminates the need for redundant processes and costs in enterprise application delivery. At one global bank, the process for requesting and receiving a new copy of a production database for development spans nearly three months. If an unplanned additional development environment is needed, the process is longer.
The total of every approval delay, procurement delay, and provisioning delay can add years to a firm’s application initiatives. With Delphix database virtualization, organizations are able to cut project schedules by 50% and project costs by even more.
Using database virtualization, the Delphix Agile Data Platform enables enterprise application teams to:
- Do 5x More: One major semiconductor firm used Delphix to increase project output by over 500%, completing 11 SAP projects when it previously could complete 2, with the same resources.
- Pay 10x Less: A global bank cut its database storage costs — both CAPEX and OPEX — by over $18 million per year with Delphix.
- Cut 5x Risk: A global Consumer Packaged Goods firm eliminated $20 million in annual downtime from SAP application errors by using the Delphix database management system for fast recovery and troubleshooting.

“The cost savings and reduction in complexity we have achieved with Delphix have been unprecedented.”
“We tried a new technology and won big. Delphix provides the elasticity to expand our project infrastructure when we need it.”
