Docker announced general availability of the Docker Desktop for Mac [Apple Silicon], enabling developers to leverage the advantages of the latest Macs powered by the M1 chip and extending the reach of their Docker collaborative application development platform to a new architecture.
Delphix and GenRocket announced a technology alliance designed to fulfill the needs of enterprise customers who desire a comprehensive test data solution that improves software quality.
Delphix fills a critical gap in the DevOps toolchain with automated provisioning of production-quality test data, delivering complete, masked virtual copies of production databases to test environments, in minutes. GenRocket’s complementary capabilities provide data subsets and a patented synthetic data solution for application development and test environments.
The end-to-end test data solution ensures development environments can thoroughly exercise all data-related permutations and branches of an enterprise application, edge cases that are known to exist, and net-new database schema or functionality that have no production data yet.
“At Delphix, we believe every company has the opportunity to dramatically accelerate software release cycles and improve software quality by automating the process of delivering ephemeral, compliant, data-ready environments across the multi-cloud,” said Dan Graves, CTO at Delphix. “The combination of full data sets from Delphix with synthetic data generation capabilities from GenRocket gives our joint customers the best of both worlds when it comes to testing with data.”
“At the heart of this partnership is absolute alignment of vision for the future of test data management: A fusion of data virtualization with synthetic data generation to deliver unprecedented test coverage, quality and speed,” noted Garth Rose CEO and Co-founder of GenRocket.
