San Francisco, CA — July 26, 2023 — Release, the leading provider of Environments-as-a-Service (EaaS), is thrilled to announce the availability of Instant Datasets as a stand-alone product. As one of the most popular features of the Release platform, Instant Datasets is now accessible to all developers worldwide, empowering them with realistic and up-to-date datasets for seamless application development and testing.

In today's data-driven landscape, developers often struggle to work with datasets that mirror their production environment accurately. Creating and managing production-like datasets can be a time-consuming and error-prone process, resulting in application discrepancies and unexpected errors during deployment. On top of that, organizations face challenges in efficiently and securely providing developers access to real production data for debugging and development purposes.

Recognizing these challenges, Release built Instant Datasets as a core feature of its platform, where it quickly gained popularity among developers, helping them replicate their production data efficiently and effectively, and improving their development velocity.

Now, with Instant Datasets as a standalone product, all developers can access this powerful tool to simplify the creation and management of database snapshots in their own cloud accounts. Instant Datasets allows developers to quickly replicate their production data in a performant, accessible, and cost-effective manner. With features such as configurable pools of warm datasets, automated replication workflows, truncation, and obfuscation script entry points, and pause/resume capabilities, developers can efficiently test code and debug applications with confidence.

"Our goal with Instant Datasets is to streamline the development and testing process for developers across all types of environments," said Tommy McClung, CEO of Release. "By providing them with up-to-date and realistic data, we ensure that applications behave consistently in staging and production, reducing post-deployment rework and surprises."

Key Features of Instant Datasets:

  • On-Demand Dataset Replicas: Instantly create up-to-date dataset replicas that activate in minutes, ensuring developers have the most relevant data for testing and debugging.
  • Seamless Integration: Compatible with multiple databases on AWS, and support for GCP and Azure is coming soon, allowing developers to work within their preferred cloud environments and database.
  • Cost-Effective Solution: Instant Datasets optimizes database costs by only activating datasets when required, reducing unnecessary expenses.

To make access to production-like even easier, Release is making Instant Datasets free to the initial cohort of users. Sign up for a free account today.
