Could a developer run docker locally and snap from a Unit Test master? I'm
not familiar with Docker - trying to figure out the infrastructure (at a
high level) to support something like this.

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 Testing.
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 OL.

Which would result in a storage purchase, scripting project to manage it
all and lock into hardware. Delphix and a couple others work on any
hardware, are cloud mobile and have a self-service portal so the DBA
doesn't have to manage it all. The new pricing model makes it worth the

I was thinking something like this:

I'm basically looking to see what options are to accomplish something
into another copy for a specific developer on demand.
I was thinking if we stood up UT Master on a VM, we could snap the VM
