The topic of DevOps and and Agile are everywhere, but how often do you hear Source Control thrown into the mix? Not so much in public, but behind the closed doors of technical and development meetings when Agile is in place, it’s a common theme. When source control isn’t part of the combination, havoc ensues and a lot of DBAs working nights on production with broken hearts.
So what is source control and why is it such an important part of DevOps? The official definition of source control is:
A component of software configuration management, version control, also known as revision control or source control, is the management of changes to documents, computer programs, large web sites, and other collections of information.
Delphix, with it’s ability to provide developer with as many virtual copies of databases, including masked sensitive data, is a no-brainer when ensuring development and then test have the environments to do their jobs properly. The added features of bookmarking and branching is the impressive part that creates full source control.
Using the diagram below, note how easy it is to mark each iteration of development with a bookmark to make it easy to then lock and deliver to test, a consistent image via a virtual database, (VDB.)
Delphix is capable of all of this, while implementing Agile data masking to each and every development and test environment to protect all PII and PCI data from production in non-production environments.
