User Experience Improvements

The new Delphix Management application is a significant improvement over the old GUI, changes to the interface allow users to save time and increase the efficiency of their processes through streamlined navigation and ready availability of functionality.

The new version addresses customer concerns in several areas, and one in particular Timeflow. Timeflow allows customers to look back at the data at any given point in time, or send data back to the physical server. The enhanced TimeFlow allows for easier review of snapshots.

The redesigned Capacity Management screen provides a quick view into which VDBs and snapshots are taking the most disk space for easier capacity management.

The Dataset Performance screen has been enhanced to provide an easier way to monitor the health and performance of your VDBs.

The new Dashboard provides important information at a glance, such as:

  • Total/available storage

  • Number of VDBs and dSources

  • Dataset performance

  • Capacity

Quick links, object snapshots, and alerts may be less critical to have on the home screen than a list of VDBs or VDB summary information.

Note: Flash is no longer required for the Delphix Engine.

Oracle VDB local listener

When provisioning an Oracle VDB, you can select a listener to register with it. During provisioning, IPC endpoints can be selected to register databases. Existing VDBs can also be updated to register with an IPC endpoint.

Provisioning an Oracle VDB
Oracle environment discovery without SSH

It is now possible to discover an Oracle environment without using SSH. You can establish a self-contained, Java-based discovery infrastructure that integrates with environment monitoring, communicates via a common framework, and is able to provide feedback.

Requirements for Oracle Target Hosts and Databases

Discovering Oracle Pluggable Databases in an Oracle Environment

Removal of 32 bit glibc dependency

The Delphix Engine now supports remote hosts with 32 bit or 64 bit glibc libraries. For existing systems the first Host Refresh after upgrade will detect the type of libraries.

Hostchecker now bundles with JDK8 by default, with a separate JDK6 bundle for older OSes that cannot run JDK6.
