Rubrik -  - Cloudy Explorations at Cloud Field Day 3

Cloudy Explorations at Cloud Field Day 3

As Chris Wahl wrote previously… It’s not often that I get to present to a room full of amazingly talented colleagues gathered from all around the world. But when I do, it’s typically during one of Gestalt IT’s Field Day presentations. While Rubrik has presented 5 times at Tech Field Day Events, presenting at Cloud Field Day 3 was particularly special. For the first time, we were able to host the delegates at our groovy HQ in Palo Alto. The tree outside turned out to be a great location for the Cloud Field Day 3 group photo. BUT…before the Rubrik presentations, we loved watching a brand new company launch from stealth – Droplet Computing. It brought a tear to our eyes as we remembered how we ended our own stealthy ways not even three short years ago. Chris Wahl kicked off our sessions with an introduction to Rubrik, our vision for the future, and recent announcements, including Rubrik Datos IO and the new Polaris SaaS platform. His intro helped set the stage for the upcoming presentations, which was appreciated by Tim Crawford and Scott D. Lowe. Next, we moved into a deep dive and demo of CloudOut, our long-term retention technology…
Rubrik -  - Welcome to Camp Rubrik!

Welcome to Camp Rubrik!

This year, we’re thrilled to launch Camp Rubrik, a hands-on event that goes under the hood of our platform. We’re bringing these labs to cities across N. America and Europe (for now) to offer a fresh approach to learning about Rubrik’s founding principles and underlying technology. Here’s a glimpse of what attendees can expect when they arrive to camp: Hands-On Experience Camp Rubrik allows customers and prospects to immerse themselves into our product through interactive labs. By accessing a mobile tactical suite or a remotely hosted infrastructure, participants go through the steps of creating and assigning SLA domains, leveraging Live Mount for a VM and SQL databases, and many other core use cases. The labs consist of eight sections with multiple subtasks. Once a section is completed, attendees earn an exclusive badge that may be worn proudly on their custom Camp Rubrik rucksacks! Thought Leadership Camp Rubrik isn’t just about exploring our product. We aim to create an event that explores the current and future IT landscape as enterprises onboard to the cloud. Prior to diving into our product, attendees will engage in a fireside chat with some of the best and brightest from Rubrik. We also bring in a…
Rubrik -  - Data Explosion and Fragmentation: Why We Built Polaris

Data Explosion and Fragmentation: Why We Built Polaris

At Rubrik, we’re obsessed with innovation. We thrive on solving the biggest data management challenges in an unconventional and radically simple manner. Today, we’re continuing this mission by launching Rubrik Polaris, the industry’s first SaaS platform for a new class of data management applications. As we spoke with many customers across industries, it became clear that everyone was struggling with the same massive challenge – the fragmentation of data and applications across data center and cloud. As they implement cloud-first and multi-cloud approaches, their applications and data are increasingly decentralized across disparate locations. Coupled with explosive data growth, retaining control of all their data is nearly impossible. They need an organizing principle that centralizes data access, governance, analysis, and intelligence across data centers and clouds. We created Polaris to address this challenge through a SaaS platform that allows customers to organize, orchestrate, and secure applications and data across their entire environment. Polaris delivers a unified system of record that organizes all their business applications and data. Simplicity is in our DNA, so the platform includes native search, security, and workflow orchestration — all on a global content catalogue — to make data easily discoverable and usable. Staying true to the…

Rubrik -  - Rubrik Turns Four: Our Year in Review

Rubrik Turns Four: Our Year in Review

Today, we’re excited to celebrate the past four years at Rubrik and the growth we’ve experienced along the way. Each year has been filled with unbelievable breakthroughs, but I think this one really cemented Rubrik as the fastest growing enterprise company. To commemorate our growth, as well as the customers and partners who support us, let’s take a look at some of our key milestones in 2017. Expanded Our Enterprise Data Management Solution One of the biggest areas of momentum for us has been in engineering and product development. We’ve had ten product releases over the past four years, and the Rubrik Alta 4.0 release was our biggest one to date. Rubrik Alta encompassed all major hypervisors by introducing integration with Microsoft Hyper-V and Nutanix AHV and added support for Oracle databases. This release also pioneered SQL Live Mount and CloudOn instantiation so that customers can leverage cost-efficient test/dev and disaster recovery. Each new feature is driven by our customers, a mindset that’s led us to continue our rapid market adoption and approach a $300 million global bookings run rate. Over the past fiscal year, we’ve grown our global customer base by more than 4x. This growth is a testament…

Rubrik Agrees to Acquire Datos IO to Accelerate Cloud Leadership

Today, we are excited to announce that Rubrik has agreed to acquire Datos IO, a market leader in application-aware data management for cloud applications built on NoSQL databases and big data file systems. Rubrik and Datos IO share a common vision of building a cloud data management control plane that can automate, orchestrate, and secure data anywhere. This acquisition expands Rubrik’s reach into mission-critical cloud applications adopted by the Fortune 500. Enterprises use these NoSQL databases and big data file systems to power the bleeding edge mission critical applications in several domains: Internet of Things, artificial intelligence/machine learning, real-time analytics, eCommerce, security and mobile analytics. As these companies leverage modern NoSQL databases (MongoDB, Cassandra, Couchbase, Amazon DynamoDB) and big data file systems (Cloudera, Hortonworks) to drive digital transformation, the ability to manage and protect these applications is critical. Datos IO’s flagship platform RecoverX has pioneered application-aware data management for cloud applications built on NoSQL databases and big data file systems. This game-changing platform delivers critical backup and recovery capabilities, while supporting modern enterprise use cases like cloud mobility, queryable recovery, and in-place analytics.

Rubrik -  - Built for Government: Rubrik Achieves DODIN APL Certification

Built for Government: Rubrik Achieves DODIN APL Certification

Today, I’m thrilled to announce that Rubrik has become the first Cloud Data Management platform to be certified by the U.S. Department of Defense Information Network Approved Products List (DODIN APL). This certification, which placed us under the CyberSecurity Tools category, reflects Rubrik’s commitment to building a secure, next-generation platform for government agencies. As the only backup and recovery solution on the Approved Products List, we are excited by the opportunity to further support defense agencies in modernizing their infrastructure and on-ramping to the cloud. The DODIN APL provides a consolidated list of products that are approved for purchase after rigorous evaluation. DOD components are required to fulfill their system needs only through APL listed products, meaning that the APL must be consulted prior to purchasing a system or product. By meeting the strict security standards, Rubrik’s solutions can immediately be used within existing government networks and streamlines the purchase process for customers. In alignment with this certification, Rubrik’s technology also supports compliance with the Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) and Modernizing Government Technology Act (MGT) mandates. These require agencies to improve their infrastructure to be more efficient, secure, resilient, and cost-effective, particularly through increased cloud adoption. The mandates provide…

Leadership Lab: Bertrand Yansouni on Building High-performing Channel Partnerships

Bertrand Yansouni recently joined us as VP of Worldwide Channel to lead the vision and strategy for Rubrik’s channel partners. He brings 25 years of experience building go-to-market strategies at enterprise tech companies, including his most recent role as Google Cloud’s VP of Global Partner Sales & Strategic Partnerships. I had the chance to chat with Bertrand about building high-performing channel organizations and leveraging Rubrik’s platform to create market opportunities for its partners. You’re an industry veteran who has driven the channel strategy at tech leaders such as Google Cloud, VMware, and Cloudera. What has been your most valuable lesson about building high-performing channel partnerships? I certainly feel that I’ve learned a lot of lessons throughout my career and that the learning process is never over! When it comes to building high-performing channel partnerships, the most valuable lesson I’ve learned is that there simply are no shortcuts. Building high-performing channel partnerships takes a lot of hard work, requires a lot of “intellectual honesty,” and most of all, it takes unbending integrity.   What do you mean by “intellectual honesty”? What I mean is that as a technology vendor, it’s very easy – at a simplistic level – to think about…

Rubrik Achieves New Federal Certification: Why it Matters

Today, I’m excited to announce that Rubrik has achieved EAL2+ Common Criteria certification for its software-defined appliances. After months of rigorous evaluation, we’re proud to provide our partners and customers with a fully-certified data protection solution that enables secure management of physical and virtualized data, across all locations — on-premises, at the edge, and in the cloud. Over the past year, the interest of Rubrik within the Federal Government has accelerated at a rapid pace. We have been adopted by organizations within the Defense Department, intelligence community, and civilian agencies in support of their mission. With this, our partner community has grown exponentially by embracing Rubrik as a solution partner across systems integrators and value added resellers. We’re excited to continue supporting our customers in achieving their business objectives and know that Common Criteria certification is a meaningful addition to that support.

At Rubrik, security has been built into our platform from the beginning. We provide in-flight and at-rest encryption, as well as offer a FIPS 140-2 Level 2 certified…
