SDLC is not a straight line going one direction or another, but a
circle, always has been (i.e. PROD > DEV > SIT > UAT > PROD).
It just moves faster now.

I think that the need to clone and refresh from prod to dev every few days/weeks/months is indicating a gap in the development and delivery process.
You should move your code form Dev to Prod not the other way around.
Investing in tools and processes to patch that gap seems an expensive workaround for lack of clean development process.
I would have the golden copy done on dev, after every release.

It's always kinda fun when someone says, "but I don't want the

OK. Don't look at everything. The full copy is available in
minutes and takes no storage, what is so bad about that?
Or, if you absolutely don't want the extra stuff to exist, then do
DROPs or TRUNCATEs as post-processing when cloning/refreshing the
I can spin up an environment in a couple minutes, giving you full
root, oracle, and delphix access, and you can check it all out.

This is how most (if not all) of 300+ customers use Delphix
for virtualizing Oracle, MSSQL, DB2, Sybase, and application
Make full-size, read-write clones quickly and cheaply, use
them, get rid of them, or archive them for easy restore.
If you want a full environment to play with and show you
around, I can make one for you in a couple minutes.
Full disclosure: I work for Delphix. Not sales, just

We've got a relatively large development group who want to

I'm curious what products are available that could
facilitate something like this?
I was thinking something like this:
Unit Test (UT Master) - code replicated from production
nightly (never used for testing)
How could I facilitate users creating a copy on demand of
UTMaster using something like:
I'm basically looking to see what options are to accomplish

I was thinking if we stood up UT Master on a VM, we could
snap the VM into another copy for a specific developer on
