Bug Number

The Delphix Engine 5.0 provides a bounty of features, bug fixes, and performance improvements. 

EBS Multi-node appsTier Support

Delphix can now support the automated deployment of EBS with multi-node application tiers, enabling the creation of non-production environments that have multi-node topologies. To find additional information about EBS Multi-nodes, see  Oracle EBS + Delphix: Conceptual Overview.

Integrated Masking

Masked VDB Provisioning

You can now create masked copies of data at VDB provision time, using masking jobs defined on the masking engine that run when you provision or refresh the VDB. It is now even easier to mask copies of production and deliver secure data across teams. From one streamlined workflow, admins can define how/what needs to be masked, who can access the data, and distribute that masked data. To find additional information about masked VDB provisioning, see Provisioning Masked VDBs.

Selective Data Distribution

 You can now replicate masked data directly to a target Delphix engine, while ensuring unmasked sensitive data does not leave the production site. This feature is critical for implementing a hybrid cloud deployment in which you want only masked data in the cloud, as well as other cases in which you want only masked data in target systems, such as offshore QA and outsourced analytics. For more information about selective data distribution, see Selective Data Distribution Overview.

DB2 Support


DB2 LUW will be available on a single machine, single partition DBs on versions 10.1 and above. We will support customers on AIX 6.1+ and Redhat 6.5+. For more information about DB2 LUW, see DB2 on Delphix: An Overview.

Better Data Security

Support for Encrypted Microsoft SQL Server Backups

Delphix enables you to load password-protected encrypted MSSQL backups taken by LiteSpeed and RedGate. You will also be able to use point-in-time provisioning between snapshots. For more information about encrypted Microsoft SQL Server backups, see Advanced Data Management Settings for SQL Server dSources.

Password-protected ASE Backups

Delphix now enables you to extract and load password-protected ASE backups. For more information about password-protected ASE backups, see Linking an SAP ASE Data Source.

Expanded Platform Support

Easy Oracle RAC Node Changes

You can now add or remove nodes dynamically on Oracle RAC target host VDBs. For more information, see Provisioning Oracle VDBs: An Overview.

 Support for Oracle Custom Environment Variables

Delphix now allows you to dictate custom environment variables that you can set prior to any administrative action, such as provision, start, stop, rollback, or refresh. For more information, see Provisioning an Oracle VDB.

Expanded Version Support





  • MySQL Enterprise Edition 5.6 support on Solaris 11, RHEL 6.2, 6.3, 6.4

Improved Jet Stream

Jet Stream Bookmark Cleaning

You can create expiration dates for your Jet Stream bookmarks, so the Delphix Engine will remove them automatically and reclaim space. For more information about setting an expiration date for a bookmark, see Understanding Bookmarks and Working with Data Operations and Sources in a Container.

Multi-owner Data Containers 

Now Jet Stream users can share ownership of a single data container. For more information on multi-owner data containers, see Jet Stream Data Concepts and Working with Data Operations and Sources in a Container.

Technical Improvements

UX Change

Faster Start

For users with a large number of databases, application startup time will be significantly faster.

Improved Masking Workflows

The masking engine is integrated into one OVA. You can now associate masking jobs with a source. You can select masking jobs from a drop-down menu and get started faster. For more information about masking workflows, see Delphix Masking Quick Start Guide - An Overview.

ZFS Improvements

Compressed ZFS Send/Receive

Performance of replication across a WAN (for example, to the cloud) is now improved with send stream pre-compression. This will lower CPU use and improve bandwidth in cases where CPU performance was a bottleneck, or where compression was not previously enabled for replication. All replications are now sent compressed so there is no longer a "compressed" checkbox in the replication UI. There is no additional CPU cost, because the data is compressed when it is first written, rather than as it is being replicated. Reported replication throughput may be lower because the amount of compressed data sent is reported, rather than the amount of uncompressed data. For more information see, Configuring Replication.

Windows Target Environments

Add Windows target environments w/ GUI

You can now add a Windows standalone target environment with the Delphix admin GUI, where you can specify a target host’s address/port/credentials. For more information, see Adding a SQL Server Standalone Target Environment.
