What Is Data Subsetting?
Data subsetting is the process of creating a smaller referentially correct copy of a larger database. After subsetting, the cut-down database remains perfectly usable - the data is referentially correct and internally consistent - but total size is much more manageable. The DataBee software provides a simple, repeatable and "push-button" method of creating smaller subset copies of Oracle and SQL Server databases.
What Does DataBee Do?
In one easy to use package, the DataBee software completely automates the process of creating referentially correct cut-down subset versions of large Oracle and SQL Server databases. If you would like an introduction to the art of creating a small referentially correct "cut-down" database please have a look at our Database Subsetting: What You Need To Know white paper.
Why Do You Want DataBee?
Using smaller copies of production databases for test and development can save a lot of time and money. A larger number of smaller databases will lower the number of developers/testers per database and reduce contention. The ability to easily and quickly create smaller test databases can dramatically reduce the wait time for development teams if the database needs to be refreshed and far less disk space will be used.
How Does DataBee Do What It Does?
Simple and understandable rules are defined to extract and load the data. The extraction rules are run to identify the rows in the database (or databases) which form a referentially correct set. Once the extract is complete, the load rules are run to populate the target environment. The rules need only be defined once and numerous extracts and loads can be performed at the push of a button.
Each version of DataBee has been custom written for the architecture of the target database and it operates only on that database. The database specific design makes DataBee simple to use and lightning fast.
Is My Data Too Complex to be Subsetted?
Not likely. DataBee handles even the most intricate data structures. It will preserve data relationships between rows in tables and even between rows in the same table. Rules for foreign keys are automatically created and logical relationships can be easily handled using the numerous innovative tools to find and add simple subsetting rules. Don't worry about the size of the data either - DataBee has successfully subsetted databases containing many hundreds of millions of rows.
What Platforms and Databases does DataBee Support?
Oracle and SQL Server versions are available. The DataBee software is installed on a Windows PC and operates on both local and remote databases. There are no server side components for any DataBee version. Oracle versions 9i, 10g, 11g, 12c and SQL Server versions 2005, 2008 and 2012 are supported.
