This is how most (if not all) of 300+ customers use Delphix for virtualizing Oracle, MSSQL, DB2, Sybase, and application tiers.

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.

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 when done.

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:

VMWare or
Delphix or
Docker or

I'm basically looking to see what options are to accomplish something like this.

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.
