Disaster Recovery in the Cloud, Part 1: Knowing the Options

I’ve had the opportunity to speak with many users about their plans for public cloud vendors and disaster recovery (DR). Specifically, users ask me about how they can use AWS or Azure as the DR target for their on-premises environment. This is also a topic that Tim Carr addresses in his recent Gestalt IT blog post. In the first of two blog posts, we will examine the different DR options in public cloud. Why Use Public Cloud for DR? The traditional approach to DR requires significant investment of time and resources. At minimum, users must consider how they would replicate their primary infrastructure to a secondary site. That secondary site needs to be procured, installed, and maintained. During normal operations, the secondary site will typically be under-utilized or over-provisioned. The cost of such an investment is beyond the means of many companies. Even for companies with the means, DR is seen as a sunk cost that delivers little return quarter over quarter. However, not having an adequate DR strategy is also something no company can afford. The public cloud offers a way for companies of all sizes to build DR sites with little upfront costs through a pay-as-you-go model. Options…

Accelerating Your Cloud Data Management Strategy

In my previous blog post, I responded to a Gestalt IT article by Tim Carr that reviewed the typical stages of public cloud adoption in an enterprise. In particular, I focused on Rubrik solutions such as CloudOut, CloudOn, and Cloud Cluster, which provide customers with advanced data management capabilities for each phase of their cloud adoption journey. Tim has followed up his article with a deeper look at how enterprises are approaching phase 2 and the important role that cloud data management plays in their journey. Three areas of emphasis that Tim highlights are security, management tool sprawl, and cloud lock-in. These are areas that Rubrik has thought hard and long about as part of its “clean sheet” approach to data protection and cloud data management. Security While security should always be top of mind, it’s frequently an afterthought addressed in phase 2 or beyond in the cloud journey.  But any time you consider sending data off-premises over the internet, there should be questions about securing data in transit and at rest. Rubrik provides an end-to-end solution beginning with data encrypted as it is being backed up to our Rubrik nodes. Each file is encrypted using client-side encryption prior to data…

Helping Customers with Their Cloud Journey

There was a time not so long ago when adopting the public cloud was considered too big of risk for the enterprise. Today, enterprises are seeing public cloud vendors as strategic partners and exploring new ways to leverage the innovation, agility, and scale of providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. However, enterprise use cases for the public cloud are not restricted to cloud-native workloads, as originally articulated by AWS and others, but also include more traditional and monolithic applications. As Tim Carr discussed in his recent Gestalt IT blog post, enterprise customers are embracing the public could but typically in a phased approach. Source: Can a Backup Appliance Really Help your Enterprise Cloud Strategy? – Part 2 These cloud journey phases often look like this: Phase 1: Leverage basic public cloud services that require minimal changes to current workloads or processes. Phase 2: Build out an infrastructure using public cloud resources for new workloads or for migrating existing on-premises workloads. Phase 3: Refactor applications to take advantage of public cloud scale and innovations, including more advanced public cloud services. Rubrik has built solutions into its Cloud Data Management platform focused on the needs of our customers as they…
