Delphix Week of Giving

In the frenzied, insular world of a Silicon Valley startup it can be easy to lose perspective on the broader community in which we live and work. Among the great hackathon projects to come from our bi-annual engineering event was the idea of “Angel Sharks”, a group of volunteers at Delphix who provide opportunities for [...]

The Total Cost of Unmasked Data

Data breaches make headlines at a regular cadence. Each is a surprise, but they are not, as a whole, surprising. While the extensive and sophisticated Target breach stuck in the headlines, a significant breach at three South Korean credit card companies happened around the same time.

Enterprise Software Hackathons

At Delphix, we just concluded one of our recurring Engineering Kickoff events where we get everyone together for a few days of collaboration, discussion, idea sharing, and fun.
