DatabaseCI Docs - Background
Go to the Quickstart if you're already signed up and just want to get started right away.
Otherwise, here's some background on subsetting, how it works, and why it's useful.
What is subsetting?
Subsetting is the process of extracting a part of your database - this could be a specific part, or a representative random sample. This makes it smaller and more manageable to work with, while maintaining all the relationships within the data that are required for integrity and correctness.
DatabaseCI keeps data in your own infrastructure
You run DatabaseCI on your own hardware, within your own infrastructure. This means you never need to send your data to DatabaseCI's servers, or even share your database connection details with us. The only thing DatabaseCI sees of your data is the structure, not the actual content.
