Continued User Experience Improvements

  • Delphix now provides an end-to-end Provision VDB wizard that allows you to pick a dSource or VDB, choose a snapshot or point in time, then provision a VDB all within a single flow. The Data objects list has also been redesigned, making it easier for users to understand at a glance which datasets belong in which groups.
