Provisioning MySQL virtual databases

The virtual database (VDB) is a Delphix Continuous Data Engine virtualized copy of your source database that runs on your target environment. A VDB is provisioned from a dSource or a VDB snapshot.


To create a VDB, you must meet the following requirements:

  1. Identify an originating dataset and snapshot.

    1. Link a dSource by following the instructions in Linking MySQL data sources.

    2. Select a previously provisioned VDB.

  2. Set up a MySQL target environment as described in Requirements for MySQL staging and target environments.

  3. A MySQL binary with the same version as the source database must be installed on the target environment.
