Virtual Test Data Management (vTDM)
vTDM provides a lightweight mechanism for Test Data Engineers to rapidly and cheaply provide Testers with access to Test Data. Instead of Testers sharing the same data source, they can access their own virtual copies of the test data, without locking the data for other testers. Each Clone of the Data Source is available near-instantaneously and takes virtually no space. More space is taken up only when a Tester changes data. Data copies can be automatically connected to a SQL Server instance or an Oracle Server instance. Using vTDM minimizes test duration, storage requirements, compute overhead, and therefore, overall costs.
