Quipu Selects Delphix to Accelerate Time-to-Market, Increase Information Governance

Banking Hybrid Cloud provider to enable continuous delivery and speed up the movement of non-production environments to Microsoft Azure using Delphix Dynamic Data Platform

Redwood City, California, UNITED STATES

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and LONDON, Sept. 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quipu, an IT consultancy and software development company headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany, has announced they are deploying the Delphix Dynamic Data Platform to help move and manage hundreds of databases in multiple development and test environments. This move to a continuous data delivery model is expected to result in an decrease in the time-to-market of releases for their core banking applications and mobile/online services from months to weeks.

Banks around the world use Quipu’s hybrid cloud to run their operations hosted in a secure data centre in Frankfurt.  The Delphix Dynamic Data Platform will synchronise large volumes of masked data between the Private Cloud hosted in on-premises data centres and development/test and pre-production environments in Microsoft Azure.

Quipu has invested in Delphix primarily to

  • Reduce risk of regulatory compliance violations
  • Release changes continuously with improved code quality
  • Increase availability using advanced forensic recovery
  • Reduce capex/opex
  • Enable the use of Microsoft Azure for development and testing

Andrei Georgescu, COO of Quipu, explains. “Delphix will enable us to deliver data anywhere we need it, as fast as we need it. We will able to spin-up environments in the cloud or on-demand, helping us deliver mission critical systems and services at a much faster pace. As we look to build out our DevOps capabilities and increasingly leverage the Azure platform, Delphix is set to become a critical part of our service delivery processes.”

Delivering protected data to the Azure Cloud

As Quipu accelerates the transition to a hybrid cloud model, developers, engineers and support teams distributed in Frankfurt and across eight (8) regional offices around the world will be able to leverage the self-service provisioning mechanisms of the Microsoft Azure cloud to spin-up development and test environments and accelerate the release cycle.

One of the biggest obstacles to adopting Azure are data protection rules such as the forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). Quipu will use Delphix to mask production data on premise and deliver this protected data to Azure.

The second biggest obstacle is size of the data to be transferred. “Without Delphix, we would not be able to operate a hybrid cloud environment so effectively because of the time required to transfer and secure the full datasets,” said Oleg Chuikin – Head of the Service Delivery Department from Quipu. “The Delphix Dynamic Data Platform makes using Azure much easier for us.”

“We are having an Azure conversation with many enterprise customers, and their number one challenge is data,” said Minas Botzoglou, DACH Country Manager at Delphix. “Quipu is a perfect example how companies can use Delphix to accelerate the use of the cloud.”
