Tampa Bay Rays on Pitching a Perfect Game with Rubrik

Juan Ramirez, Vice President of Information Technology at the Tampa Bay Rays, discusses how Rubrik transformed the game of data management, ensuring operations run smoothly both during the season and offseason. Tell me about your role at Tampa Bay Rays. I’m the Vice President of Information Technology at the Tampa Bay Rays and am responsible for the Rays’ technology strategies and operations. I joined the team in 2006 and am heading into my 10th season. When I joined the department, it was just myself and an assistant. Since then, the department has grown greatly from 2 to 12 people. What challenges were you experiencing with backup prior to Rubrik? Backup has always been an issue around here. Our previous solution was very cumbersome, and since our business grows so fast and is very sensitive, keeping up with the changes on a daily basis was a struggle. Particularly, we had a lot issues with tape and backing up to disk. Also, the recovery and response times were never there. We have 350 VMs, and we try to protect as much as we can. The baseball operations and workloads are the most important to us. Thus, if anyone needs to restore a…

AERTEC Solutions Ensures Business Continuity and Innovation with Rubrik

AERTEC Solutions, headquartered in Málaga, Spain, is an international engineering and consulting company specialized in aeronautics with projects covering more than 100 airports across 39 countries. Jesús Viciana, Information Technology Director at AERTEC Solutions, chats with me on building a stronger disaster recovery strategy and freeing up time for innovation with Rubrik. What challenges were you experiencing with your previous solution? As we transitioned to a fully virtualized environment, we wanted to move away from legacy infrastructure. Our previous backup software was very complex and difficult to manage. Our backups were failing. Additionally, we had to run all our operations on extremely slow servers.  It was impossible to work with. Last year, we ran into a massive problem when we upgraded to VMware vSphere 6.0. There was a bug in the databases, and when we tried to recover from our backups, the data became corrupt. From a business point of view, it was unacceptable. We started looking for another solution in the market that was more reliable for disaster recovery. Why Rubrik? We needed a solution that maximized the value of our business and ensured recoverability in case of a failure. Rubrik is a powerful tool that was easy to…

Evans Vogas, Network Operations Analyst, at Davies discusses how the company revamped their infrastructure to reduce costs, streamline their IT, and move to public cloud.

Secondly, we are working on our ISO 27001 certification, which mandates procedures, especially related to disaster recovery. With Rubrik, we can accommodate some of those policies.

It offers temperature controlled transportation services, as well as warehousing and value-added services.

André Dousse, Team Leader of IT infrastructure at Galliker Transport, explains how Rubrik helps them keep up the pace with their growing industry. How has your industry evolved in the last few years, and what is the role of IT? 15 years ago, when I entered this sector, daily business was done with fax and telephone. Today, everything is IT driven. If an order goes in today and goods have to be delivered tomorrow morning, our IT has to be faster and more reliable. This is especially important for our industry because logistic companies highly benefit from being dynamic. Virtual data centers help us keep up with this need. All our mission-critical data is hosted on our virtualized platform. What were your challenges with backup? With our previous solution, we spent a lot of time just managing our backups.

Fortune 500 Consumer Retail Company Simplifies Data Protection with Rubrik

At VMworld 2016, I sat down with one of our customers at a Fortune 500 consumer retail company to discuss how they are using Rubrik and the benefits they have seen. As a result, they have wiped out management complexity for their backup and recovery environment and created a plan to expand their global footprint. What type of backup challenges were you experiencing? Our team was looking to simplify backup and recovery. We were previously using multiple solutions and were frustrated by the time needed to train employees let alone recover data. It just wasn’t feasible, and we needed faster recovery times. Additionally, our previous solution was extremely expensive. We have two heavy data centers, and we were running out of runway in our remote locations as well as our local locations. To expand storage space within our former solution would have been very costly. What sold you on Rubrik? While we were evaluating other solutions, when we saw your product, it spoke for itself. That was the biggest thing. I don’t think anyone on our team could effectively know how to use our previous product. With Rubrik, I can take anyone off the street, and in less than hour,…
