Indonesia. “Say you were traveling abroad and lost
your phone. You could go to an Internet cafe, log in
to your Track and Protect Web page, and locate it or
secure the data,” Harmsen says.
“Hosted mobile device management may offer an advantage when the hosted service can be accessed from
the same public networks as these mobile devices,”
says Crawford. “This potentially improves the ability
to reach and manage these devices wherever found.”
4 Database Virtualization: Delphix One task that can consume a lot of IT’s time, not to mention data center infrastructure, is database cloning. Test and development, data warehousing, and support
teams, among others, request copies of production
databases on a regular basis. Each time, IT must
provision server and storage resources to house all
those database copies.
Moreover, the data becomes stale almost as soon
as it is duplicated, and it can be difficult for IT to
track the different versions in existence to delete
them and reabsorb the underlying resources.
Startup Delphix has developed Delphix Server
to virtualize databases. Essentially, the software
creates full read/write clones of Oracle 10 and 11
production databases. These clones are automatically generated from abstracted snapshots and log
files, and they require a tenth of the storage space
that physical databases need, according to Karthik
Rau, vice president of products and marketing.
The virtual database regularly syncs with the
production database; only changed data is sent to the
virtual database, reducing the infrastructure workload.
Overall, Delphix aims to consolidate data center re-
sources and speed applica-
tion testing, development,
and upgrade cycles.
