This topic describes basic concepts behind the creation of dSources from SAP ASE databases.

Initial Linking and Staging Databases

A dSource is the copy of a physical database that is created when the Delphix Engine links to and loads the database from a backup. The database backup can be a new full database backup that the Delphix Engine initiates, the most recent existing database backup, or an existing database backup specified by the user. When loading from an existing backup, the backup should be in a location that the source environment user can access.

After obtaining the initial snapshot and linking the dSource, the Delphix Engine keeps the dSource and the source database in sync by monitoring the source database for new database and transaction backups, and then applying those backups on a standby database. This database is called the "staging database." A target environment that hosts one or more staging databases is referred to as a "staging target."

After you have linked a database into the Delphix Engine, you can re-initialize it by performing a sync on the dSource.
