For CIOs, Focus on the Service Experience is Paramount

Four years ago, I sat down with Frank Slootman, now Former CEO of ServiceNow and Data Domain, and shared my idea of re-architecting backup and recovery from the ground up to manage the data explosion in a cloudy world. Backup and recovery was overdue for a technology refresh. There was opportunity to bring the power of public clouds to backup, expand the role of backup data into a business asset for test/dev and analytics, and replace the traditional cumbersome architecture and user experience with one that was radically simple and infinitely scalable. Fast forward to ten product releases and 600+ employees, Frank and I caught up on why he invested in Rubrik and how our vision resonated with him. During the discussion, we traded notes on where IT is headed and what’s top of mind for CIOs. Four out of the five business days, I’m usually found on the road, meeting with customers around the world across all industries. After countless trips, I have noticed a clear trend in my discussions with CIOs – the CIO of today is starkly different from the CIO of yesterday. They are business strategists and spend their time figuring how best to leverage technology…

The Vision Is Bright: Rubrik Named a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant

We are honored to announce that Gartner has named Rubrik a “Visionary” in its 2017 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions. We are entering after only three years of operations in a category that hasn’t welcomed a new vendor since 2014, an unprecedented trajectory. This is a testament to our focus on innovation and customer success. Rubrik is disrupting a previously underserved industry composed of complex and brittle solutions. Rubrik Cloud Data Management was architected to dramatically simplify data management and enable new data services anytime, anywhere, regardless of infrastructure. With a $150 million bookings run rate after only eight quarters of selling, it is clear that the market demand is on our direction. We believe our modern approach has changed the way enterprise customers think about backup and recovery, and the potential of application data when it can be delivered reliably anytime, anywhere. Our solution supports all major enterprise production environments – virtual, physical, or cloud. Rubrik Alta, our ninth and most significant product release, rounds out this support with Hyper-V, Nutanix AHV, native Oracle, and SQL. The release also introduced Live Mount for SQL, a capability that has never been offered by any other solution.…

Rubrik Is Named to the Forbes Cloud 100

Rubrik is honored and humbled to be named to the Forbes Cloud 100 alongside so many innovative companies. Compiled with the help of partners Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures, the Forbes Cloud 100 recognizes the “best and brightest” of private cloud companies. The list is based on operating metrics such as revenue and funding, alongside input from 25 public cloud CEO peers. Rubrik has become the fastest growing enterprise company ever. In addition to nearing $100M run rate in booking in only six quarters selling, we have grown our customer base 11x over the past year and half, and have delivered rapid innovation via nine major product releases. The future is bright with cloud. Rubrik built the first Cloud Data Management Platform to empower customers to mobilize applications, automate protection policies, recover from ransomware, and search and analyze application data at scale. We’ve brought meaningful numbers of large enterprises and their applications to the Cloud, like Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP, Driscoll’s, and Tampa Bay Rays. We do this by making the Cloud incredibly simple, and by delivering compelling new capabilities using the Cloud that can be delivered anytime, anywhere. Rubrik was architected from Day 1 to deliver…

Rubrik Raises $180 Million at $1.3 Billion – Why it Matters

This past week, we announced that we raised $180 million at a $1.3 billion valuation. The round is led by IVP (same folks who invested in Slack, Snapchat, AppDynamics, MuleSoft) with strong participation from our existing investors Lightspeed Venture Partners and Greylock Partners. Why raise another round? We have not even dipped into the $61 million from Series C since we’ve been judiciously fueling our hyper-growth with cash flow. Simply put, Rubrik is growing extremely fast. We’ve grown our employees by more than 15x in the past two years. We’ve expanded to 5 continents in 5 quarters. We approached $100 million in bookings in just six quarters of selling. We’ve amassed a customer base numbering into several hundred enterprises, with huge penetration into the Fortune 500 and large governments. When several investors approached us to pre-empt the next round of funding, my co-founders and I saw the opportunity to double down on accelerating our business at a rate that the industry has not seen before. The market demand is there and we can further amplify our innovation lead by investing heavily in R&D. To date, we have rolled out 8 product releases with the latest managing data for cloud-native applications while…

This is Cloud Data Management

This is Cloud Data Management What is Cloud Data Management? Cloud Data Management is a platform that orchestrates mission critical application data across private and public clouds while delivering data management functions such as backup, disaster recovery, archival, compliance, search, analytics, and copy data management in a single, run-anywhere platform. Built for the cloud generation, Rubrik eliminates the complexity of legacy solutions with an automated policy engine that manages data throughout its lifecycle across all data management functions. This vision to deliver a software fabric for data management is rooted in our cloud vendor-agnostic platform, preventing vendor lock-in to any particular cloud. The cloud is a democracy. In the past, we lived in a restrictive system, one where we were anchored to legacy platforms with a disparate view of our businesses. The cloud represents a new era that liberates enterprises by delivering universal access and automation over their applications. With cloud, enterprises can reduce cost and time-to-market while retaining business agility. The cloud adoption is not a question of “if” but rather “how.” Many enterprises are unable to realize the promise of the cloud because of the limitations within their own infrastructure. They have spent millions and millions on their…
