[#Blogged] Different Types Of Sandboxes

Sandboxes :

sandbox is a replica of an engenderment environment utilized for a variety of purposes, commonly including testing and development. Here's how it works: When you engender or refresh (essentially effaces and reconstitutes a sandbox utilizing the same name) a sandbox, a facsimile of the engenderment environment at that point in time is made.


Different types of Sandboxes 


FullSandbox - Plenarily testing changes against authentic data afore promoting to engenderment.  This may include utilizer acceptance testing.  All changes must go through this sandbox.  If multiple admins/developers are working on overlapping areas, this is the place where changes get merged.  Force.com IDE can be habituated to compare changes by separate developers of the same apex code.
Full sandboxes have the same storage limit as your production organization.Once you refresh the Full Copy Sandbox then to refresh it one more time you have to wait for 29 Days.

 Partial Data Sandbox - This is an incipient sandbox type and I am not quite sure what the intention was.  Probably just a more frugal alternative to a full sandbox.  If you have a full sandbox, then partial data sandbox sounds like a good place for utilizer training for incipient features, incipient employees, etc.  Having authentic data can authentically avail with training.  Additionally, possibly a place to work on integration changes since it can hold quite remotely of authentic data.

Partial Data sandboxes have a 5 GB storage limit.
Once you refresh the Partial Data Sandbox then to refresh it one more time you have to wait for 5 Days.

Developer - A place to work through solutions to incipient requisites.  The main conception is to keep arbitrary experimentation out of the full sandbox.  It there are multiple admins/developers, each one should get their own so that they don't trample on each others work (until they deploy to the full sandbox).

Developer sandboxes have a 200 MB storage limit.


Once you refresh the Developer Sandbox then to refresh it one more time you have to wait for 1 Day.


Developer Pro - The main distinction between this and Developer is the amount of data that can be stored.  It additionally prehends some product data from engenderment.  If those two things are paramountutilize this one.  Otherwise, it's interchangeble with Developer.

Developer Pro sandboxes have a 1 GB storage limit.


Once you refresh the Developer Pro Sandbox then to refresh it one more time you have to wait for 1 Day.
