Prerequisites

This section will detail the hardware/software requirements needed to deploy the Delphix Engine with the Masking service. The Delphix Engine is a self-contained operating environment and application that is provided as a Virtual Appliance. Our Virtual Appliance is certified to run on a variety of platforms including VMware, AWS, and Azure.

The Delphix Engine should be placed on a server where it will not contend with other VMs for network, storage or other compute resources. The Delphix Engine is a CPU and I/O intensive application, and deploying it in an environment where it must share resources with other virtual machines can significantly reduce performance.

Delphix Masking and Delphix Virtualization should never be run inside the same virtual machine. Always use separate, dedicated Delphix Engines for Masking and Virtualization.

Client Web Browser

The Delphix Engine's graphical interface can be accessed from a variety of different web browsers. The Delphix Engine currently supports the following web browsers:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 11.0 or higher
  • Microsoft Edge 40.x or higher
  • Mozilla Firefox 35.0 or higher
  • Chrome 40 or higher

TIP - Microsoft Internet Explorer

Make sure that Internet Explorer is not configured for compatibility mode.
