Many people use Docker for this these days.
Docker integrates well with almost all CI/CD tools and it allows you to spin up
a DB fast and just throw it away afterwards, which makes it perfect for Unit
If you don’t even need any data or not much, it’s a great fit.
If you do need a lot of data or more sophisticated snapshot and rollback then
probably not so much.
Another benefit of Docker is that Community Edition is free which is probably
all you need for unit testing.
Community Edition also ships in the Oracle Linux addons if you happen to run on

you don't need any special product for this purpose - just a CoW filesystem
with snapshot technology like ZFS :)

We've got a relatively large development group who want to have many Unit
Test databases (without data) that they can spin up on demand and destroy
I'm curious what products are available that could facilitate something
I was thinking something like this:
Unit Test (UT Master) - code replicated from production nightly (never used
How could I facilitate users creating a copy on demand of UTMaster using
I'm basically looking to see what options are to accomplish something like
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 demand.
