DEVELOPMENT & TEST DATA MANAGEMENT CHALLENGES

The lack of an easy means to provision up-to-date data for development and testing is not only painful, it adds significant time to delivery schedules. It is rare that organizations have efficient test data management software to manage the movement of data in support of their development efforts.

Because of this, a typical development project might require 5 to 10 individual copies of a production database and drive 50+ TB of storage requirements. And the time to provision 50TB of copies for test / dev can take weeks. Likewise, because many organizations lack test data management software that can easily update a data set without disrupting production systems, teams are left to use out-of-date data, which can often provoke additional development cycles and “bug” fixes when an application update comes face to face with the reality of current data.

The end result: development teams are left waiting, less development occurs in a given timeframe, milestones/roadmap dates are missed, application quality suffers, delivery dates are extended and potential revenue-generation is deferred.

 

TRADITIONAL PROCESS VS. ACTIFIO WORKFLOW

Actifio takes a process that used to take weeks and slashes it to minutes.

BETTER APPLICATIONS, FASTER – DEV & TEST DATA MANAGEMENT WITH ACTIFIO

Actifio changes the game for development and test – revolutionizing test data management.  With rich database support, Actifio can mount space-efficient copies (snaps and/or clones) of production data for any number of developers – instantly.  Storage isn’t consumed unless changes are made.   And all of those changes are tracked.  If they need to be synched back, do so. If they can be deleted, just unmount. And, with patented LiveClone technology, those snaps can be automatically refreshed from production without expanding to full-size.
