Case study

Finance, healthcare, retail & consulting case studies

On demand production data devops

Refresh dev, test, and staging environments with always up-to-date production data via command line, docker clients, REST APIs or UI. Transaction log backups update a central database image repo forever, for delivery of writable live secondary databases on demand, in seconds. Automatically apply upgrade, rollback and data masking scripts to the live secondaries


On-demand, tested Disaster Recovery (DR)

A Windocks database image repo at the secondary site, kept up to date with transaction log backups from the primary delivers DR on demand. Save costs by using a single Windocks server as a DR secondary for multiple primaries in different locations. Test DR periodically by delivering live secondaries on demand from the Windocks image. Fail over to warm DR instances or instances created on demand


High confidence cloud migration

A Windocks image on the cloud is updated automatically with transaction log backups from the on-prem primary. This image delivers live secondaries with current production data on the cloud that are tested periodically with mirrored production requests for confidence. When ready, switch over to the cloud production server which has current production data from the same Windocks image


Windocks delivers clones of databases either using Windows VHDX based cloning or using your SAN (NetApp, Pure Storage, Cohesity, etc). The lifecycle of the SAN thin volume clones (creation, volume mounting, SQL Server database attaching, deletion) is automated and managed entirely by Windocks. Database clones are available in SQL Server containers or instances.
