Free Version of Delphix !

January 13th, 2015

Delphix is now available for  30 day trial direct download ! ( if you would like a longer version please contact me at kyle@delphix.com year trials and even indefinite trials  potential possible for partners, bloggers, Oracle Aces etc)

Just got to the

The Delphix download trial consists of 3 pre-configured virtual machines downloadable as OVA files

  • source machine with Oracle XE and Postgres  (1.3 GB)
  • Delphix engine (1.2 GB)
  • target machine with Oracle XE and Postgres binaries (1.9 GB)

Just startup the source, target and Delphix VM and you are ready to go.  After starting up the source, target and Delphix the lab will automatically link Delphix to the source databases. After a few minutes the source databases will show up in the the Delphix console in a browser. Access Delphix via the browser by simply typing in the IP address of Delphix. Once the sources are visible in the Delphix console you can start creating thin clones on the target machine. The thin clones only take a couple minutes to make and take up almost no space.
