Copies and subsets of sensitive production data continue to be proliferated across the enterprise. Your businesses’ strategic data and customers’ identities should be treated with responsibility. Many organizations are spending large amounts of man-hours year after year securing and ‘prepping’ sensitive data in non-production database environments such as Test, Training and Development . Ongoing support-enhancement projects require unplanned production copies or subsets; however, sub-setting from a production database is no easy feat. In fact, a survey, via the Database Journal, a survey for SQL Server DBA’s, indicates database cloning is one of ten DBA tasks that should be automated due to the repeated requests and effort which equates to higher costs.
