Strong Enterprise Demand & Rapid Product Innovation: Our Year in Review

This month, we’re excited to celebrate the past six years of Rubrik and the tremendous growth we’ve experienced along the way. At Rubrik, we’re committed to building a long-lasting company that relentlessly prioritizes our customers’ needs at all stages of our journey.  Our most recent fiscal year, which ended January 31, 2020, welcomed many new customers across industries who rely on Rubrik to manage, govern, and orchestrate critical data across data centers and cloud.

Our ability to execute on this vision has been recognized in the market.

Despite our short time on the market, we achieved the highest possible score in the strategy category, with among the highest scores in the security…

Opas AI Team Joining Rubrik to Accelerate Innovations in AI

We are excited to announce that Rubrik has acquired Opas AI, a company that specializes in artificial intelligence for root cause analysis in IT. At Rubrik, we’re focused on building solutions that reduce the friction and time required to run and manage modern IT environments. The Opas AI team will help us accelerate these efforts and enable our customers to more quickly and efficiently respond to problems in their IT operations. Rubrik already employs AI in a variety of ways to deliver cutting-edge capabilities that tackle the biggest data management pain points. For example, Polaris Radar, our Ransomware detection and remediation solution, uses AI to sift through large volumes of metadata to detect and pinpoint security vulnerabilities and ransomware attacks.  Opas AI has developed an AI-based Causation Engine that employs an ensemble of statistical and ML models – deep neural nets, random forests, support vector machines – to “understand” and model the behavioral parameters of applications and their underlying infrastructure. This enables the Causation Engine to quickly diagnose a potential or existing fault.  With Opas AI’s technology, we see a near-term opportunity to enhance our product offerings to provide our customers more proactive alerting and shorter problem resolution cycles when…

Rubrik -  - LKAB Avoids Millions in Downtime & Drives Operational Efficiency with Rubrik

LKAB Avoids Millions in Downtime & Drives Operational Efficiency with Rubrik

Rubrik is honored to have received the Best Data Security and Data Protection award at VMworld 2019, marking our eighth VMworld award in just four years. This win was in partnership with our customer LKAB, a leading Swedish mining company, and recognizes the automation, increased efficiency, and significant business value they achieved with Rubrik Edge. Winners of the award were selected “based on the business benefits, levels of innovation and best practice their projects demonstrated.” Enabling our customers to tackle the toughest enterprise data management challenges and unlock new value from their data is what drives us. That’s why, in celebration of our Best of VMworld award, I want to share LKAB’s story and the business benefits they’ve realized by deploying Rubrik.  Modern Data Management for Modern Operations LKAB is a state-owned mining company that produced 26.9 Mt of iron ore products in 2018 with ambitious plans to increase production by 5% per year through 2021. Due to the modern technology and high cost of running their mines, IT is a crucial component of their operations and supports business-critical applications, as well as their entire global employee base.  As Robert Pohjanen, IT Architect at LKAB, explains, “Our small IT department…
Rubrik -  - Our Perspective on Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant

Our Perspective on Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant

This week after a two-year hiatus, Gartner published its 2019 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions with a new lead analyst and supporting team. As many know, Gartner’s research can sway market perceptions–presumably based on the firm’s reputation for diligent research and, as Gartner notes, the firm’s “independence, objectivity and accuracy.”  While we continue to seek good relations with Gartner, to put it bluntly, it’s our opinion that the 2019 Backup and Recovery Solutions MQ is seriously flawed. We have engaged with the Gartner team over several months to remedy a number of significant issues and concerns to no avail, so we felt it was important that the market, including our customers, potential customers, partners and employees, have the full set of facts that are pertinent in objectively evaluating the information contained in this MQ.  Based on objective data, since the 2017 MQ, Rubrik has made significant progress in its business, out-paced all of its competitors, and has had a disproportionately large impact on the Data Center Backup and Recovery market. Yet, this progress has not manifested in any significant movement, as reflected in Rubrik’s position within the 2019 MQ. Note: The data cited below is as…
Rubrik -  - We’re Not for Sale.

We’re Not for Sale.

I’d like to address a press article suggesting Rubrik is for sale. This story is completely false. I want to make it unequivocally clear that Rubrik is not for sale. We are committed to building a long-lasting, independent company.  Over the past five years, Rubrik has achieved unprecedented growth and customer adoption in a $20B+ market. We are in the midst of a significant and permanent industry transition from complex legacy products to our groundbreaking Cloud Data Management solution. In our most recent quarter, we’ve achieved over 70% growth in our customer base with significant traction in the Global 2000. We were also named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™ and broke into the Top 10 of the Forbes Cloud 100.  We intend to continue building on our leadership position in the Data Management market, while enabling our customers to unlock the value of their data. We’re also expanding our strong ecosystem of partners to deliver comprehensive customer value. In an age of misinformation, I want to set the record straight: we’re flattered by the attention, but we’re not looking for a buyer.
