TDK provides an advanced solution for populating test environments with data that closely resembles production data, with a focus on safety and security. This solution enhances and automates the various features offered by PostgreSQL, enabling data generation, masking, and transformation using SQL and third-party extensions. We have previously discussed this topic in detail in our article here.

Key features

  • Data generation, if you do not have enough production data in the test environment - this will allow you to test your applications, including functional and loading tests
  • Subsetting - creating a small slice of data from a large production database while preserving all data relations and properties
  • Masking - allows you to test, analyze, and share your production data securely
