We're building a new tool to enable rapid SQL Server provisioning, while safeguarding your data and making efficient use of disk space.
SQL Clone takes the pain out of creating and managing multiple copies of production databases, helping you and your team deliver new features and upgrades fast.Download Beta
Your data image is a full copy of your database at a point in time. It contains the source data from which clones are derived and is immutable so cannot be edited. Creating it takes about as long as restoring a backup, and consumes as much disk space as a single restore.
Data images can either be stored locally, or shared with other machines by placing them on a Windows file share.
Clones take up a tiny amount of disk space and take seconds to create. They work just like normal SQL Server databases. You can connect to and edit them with any program.
Changes you make are specific to each clone and are persisted to a local differencing file. The rest of the data is accessed using the data image. To share your changes, just create new data images from your clones.
Create multiple database copies in seconds, using a fraction of the normal disk space. Use these clones for accurate development and testing or to diagnose issues in production.
Create dedicated local development environments for your team to accurately develop, test, and fix code. They get a realistic server environment and data set, without wasting disk space on their PCs.
Use a central UI to define a repeatable process for masking data. Generate realistic test data to replace sensitive data for realistic development and test environments. Restrict access to sensitive data by data image.
