Sandbox with some data


Currently I can have a sandbox with no data (configuration only) or a sandbox with all my data (full). This all or nothing seems a bit silly. It'd be great to have a sandbox with 5% of my data in it created for me by Salesforce. That way, I don't have to spend time creating data that may (or more likely) may not reflect the data in my production org.

    In Winter '14 we will be offering a new product that will allow you to copy a sampled subset of production data based on what is defined in a sandbox template.

    For each object selected to be copied, we will copy up to 10,000 records.  The storage limit for this sandbox will be 5GB and the refresh interval will be 5 Days.  The data sampling does take into account required foreign key relationships.  

    For example, if the sandbox template you define contains Accounts and Contacts, then, when applied to a partial sandbox creation, we will copy up to 10,000 account records and up to 10,000 related Contacts.
