Cranfield University Chooses Rubrik for Disaster Recovery to the Cloud and Simplified Data Management

Cranfield University, a British postgraduate university, is a global leader for education and transformational research in technology and management. Every year, Cranfield University delivers academic courses in 50 countries outside of the UK and executive development to over 15,000 people. Cranfield is one of the UK’s top five commercial research-intensive universities. We recently spoke with Edward Poll, Head of IT Infrastructure, about their experience with Rubrik. Tell us about Cranfield’s IT strategy. What is the IT team responsible for? As a leading global research institution, demand for agile services from our users is continuously increasing. We need forward-thinking technology within our infrastructure that will give us hands-free management and automated orchestration, providing DevOps-like functionality while minimizing downtime, so we can effectively support the university’s 1,600 staff and 4,000 postgraduate students. Cloud is also top of mind for us, especially for disaster recovery. Our goal is to leverage the agility and cost savings of cloud infrastructure. What challenges did you previously have with data protection? Previously, we were replicating to a third-party host.

Edge-ier Cloud Data Management for ROBO Environments

Imagine a small satellite office with minimal data, but data that needs to be backed up nonetheless. Organizations suffering from the complexity of legacy solutions often face costly and inefficient backup processes when dealing with remote and branch offices (ROBO) data. That’s why we created Rubrik Edge – a software appliance built specifically for ROBO environments that stretches data protection and management to the far-flung corners of our customers’ businesses. With Edge, companies can save time by managing backup and replication policies–rather than creating individual backup schedules–and quickly recover all data, no matter where it’s stored. Deploy Edge at remote locations to backup locally, replicate to a central data center, and archive to the cloud with an easy interface. We’ve gathered three stories of how our customers are using Rubrik Edge to bring operational simplicity and cost savings to their ROBO locations.
