The Delphix platform is used to create virtual copies of the data (or some of the data) contained within your corporate databases for use in application development, testing, cloud migration, back-up and recovery, and other similar scenarios. The Delphix Engine creates virtual copies of existing data sources for these purposes. Complementing the Delphix Engine is Delphix Data Masking, which allows masking of sensitive data in these virtual environments.
