Now that the vendor of the software that I have been Beta testing has gone public for SQL Server support, I do not feel that I have to hide who they are. Delphix is the vendor of the virtualization platform. Go check them out. They are doing some really cool things and it is very very useful. I use it for Oracle and have been very involved with the SQL Server Beta. I love the software and I cannot wait for them to finish the SQL Server version. I am still finding some bugs but overall it is fantastic. They do not yet have a functioning GUI for SQL Server so I have written a powershell script that interfaces with the Delphix CLI so you do not have to. I and my team, have found this script very useful when working in Delphix for SQL Server. It does not do everything but you can add a Source Host, Link a Dsource, Provision A VDB, delete a VDB, and Delete a Dsource. I am still working on some more functionality, but if you are interested and you are using Delphix for SQL Server, just let me know. I will be happy to share it with you.
Well go check them out and let me know what you think. They make DB Refreshes fast and easy, as well as saving you a ton of storage. It really is good stuff with a real ROI.
