Data Control Tower (DCT) is a unified data management platform used to enable API-driven DevOps workflows with Continuous Data and Compliance, and centrally manage the entire data estate for all Delphix users. The core of DCT focuses on a centralized, container-based deployment architecture with a robust API library that enables automation and management across multiple Delphix Engines. The DCT container form factor allows users to self-host on their preferred public or private cloud environment. For more information, see Upgrade DCT.
