Overview

This introductory version of Data Control Tower (DCT) provides a centralized, container-based deployment architecture with a robust API library that enables automation and management across multiple Delphix Continuous Data engines. The DCT container form factor allows customers to self-host on their preferred public or private cloud environment. DCT is backward compatible with Continuous Data engine API versions starting with version 5.3. Engines with different versions can also be simultaneously connected to DCT. 

Supported APIs

  • Engines (List engines connected to the API Gateway)
  • Environments (List environments across Engines)
  • Datasets (List sources, dsources and vdbs across Engines)
  • Snapshots (List Timeflow Snapshots for a dataset)
  • VDB Provisioning (Provision Oracle single instance, MSSql or Sybase ASE databases)
  • Bookmarks (Bookmark a point in time in a VDB to ease the process of restoring the VDB later to that point in time)
  • VDB operations (Enable, Disable, Start, Stop, Delete, Refresh, Rewind VDBs)
  • Jobs (Monitor progress of asynchronous tasks)

Features

  • Engines versions 5.3+ supported (Virtualization only - masking support will be a future addition)
  • Connections to engine over HTTPs (self-provided certificate authority when necessary)
  • Username/password to authenticate with engines stored in the API Gateway or provided via password vault
  • Hashicorp vault supported
  • Audit logging via Nginx access log, self-configured Docker logging to go to fluentd, splunk, etc.
  • Native APIs keys supported for DCT authentication, OAuth2.0 provided via nginx module
  • OpenAPI 3.0 spec (self-generated client libraries with open source tooling)
