Full Copy Sandbox
Configuration Only Sandbox
|Developer sandbox||Configuration-only sandbox||Full copy sandbox|
perfect, if extension app
slower to copy
giving developers access to data may not be ok
best for feature test
load standard data for regression
best for production debugging
|Testing external integrations||
not a good fit
special cases only
use sample or subset data
works well if using external ids
external system expects full production data to be present
|Staging / UAT||
not a good fit
sometimes appropriate if testing against subset of production data is acceptable, e.g. regional
validation of new apps against production config and data
|Sandboxes Available / Edition||
EE – 1 sandbox
UE – 1 sandbox
UE – 5 config sandboxes
Note: Can purchase up to 6 config only sandboxes

The website of the top tech firm in India, TCS, has been hacked. The site was hacked by an Algerian, according to a report by DNA. The hacker had directed the TCS site to his own and had put it up for sale. The sale messages had been put in English and French.
Reports say that it could be a DNS attack, like the one which Twitter was subjected to some months back. The DNA report says that the hacker said in his post that he has hacked other websites before, including the website of the Bank of Israel.
The site has been restored as of Sunday afternoon. Some users, however, had trouble accessing it even on Sunday evening.
Valentine’s Day started in the time of the Roman Empire. In ancient Rome, February 14th was a holiday to honour Juno. Juno was the Queen of the Roman Gods and Goddesses. The Romans also knew her as the Goddess of women and marriage. The following day, February 15th, began the Feast of Lupercalia.
The lives of young boys and girls were strictly separate. However, one of the customs of the young people was name drawing. On the eve of the festival of Lupercalia the names of Roman girls were written on slips of paper and placed into jars. Each young man would draw a girl’s name from the jar and would then be partners for the duration of the festival with the girl whom he chose. Sometimes the pairing of the children lasted an entire year, and often, they would fall in love and would later marry.
Under the rule of Emperor Claudius II Rome was involved in many bloody and unpopular campaigns. Claudius the Cruel was having a difficult time getting soldiers to join his military leagues. He believed that the reason was that roman men did not want to leave their loves or families. As a result, Claudius cancelled all marriages and engagements in Rome.
The good Saint Valentine was a priest at Rome in the days of Claudius II. He and Saint Marius aided the Christian martyrs and secretly married couples, and for this kind deed Saint Valentine was apprehended and dragged before the Prefect of Rome, who condemned him to be beaten to death with clubs and to have his head cut off. He suffered martyrdom on the 14th day of February, about the year 270. At that time it was the custom in Rome, a very ancient custom, indeed, to celebrate in the month of February the Lupercalia, feasts in honour of a heathen god. On these occasions, amidst a variety of pagan ceremonies, the names of young women were placed in a box, from which they were drawn by the men as chance directed.
The pastors of the early Christian Church in Rome endeavoured to do away with the pagan element in these feasts by substituting the names of saints for those of maidens. And as the Lupercalia began about the middle of February, the pastors appear to have chosen Saint Valentine’s Day for the celebration of this new feaSt. So it seems that the custom of young men choosing maidens for valentines, or saints as patrons for the coming year, arose in this way.
There are several reasons that many giant websites are ending support for IE6:
