Now in Rubrik: Orchestrated DR, Continuous Data Protection, and SLA Policy-Based Advancements

At Rubrik, we’re committed to developing strong technology partnerships so that our customers can seamlessly use Rubrik’s innovative solutions to meet business SLAs with their existing systems. One of these critical technology partnerships is with VMware, as many of our customers running on VMware leverage Rubrik to protect their environments, eliminate data management complexity, and unlock massive savings. Today, we’re thrilled to announce additional innovations for VMware with Rubrik Andes 5.1, which delivers groundbreaking solutions for data classification, DR orchestration, and continuous data protection across Rubrik Cloud Data Management (RCDM) and Rubrik Polaris SaaS platform.  Cloud DR Orchestration. VMware to AWS. When it comes to DR runbook creation and execution, many organizations continue to rely on manual processes. These labor-intensive tasks are often error prone, slow, and can lead to loss of critical data. To ensure a high degree of availability and protection, all organizations will benefit from the use of DR orchestration – creating automated, repeatable, testable plans that are integrated directly into IT environments and processes.  Polaris AppFlows is a new SaaS application that delivers radically simple DR orchestration: failover, failback, application migration, and non-disruptive testing from VMware data centers to AWS. AppFlows is tightly integrated into the…

Introducing the Rubrik Authorized Support Partner Specialization

Rubrik has employed a 100% channel-driven go-to-market strategy since day one and this has played a key role in our success to date. Last year we formalized this approach with the launch of the Rubrik Velocity Partner Program, our first global program for resellers. The program has been extremely well received by our partners and we are continuing to offer more ways for partners to grow their Rubrik business — today, I’m excited to launch the Rubrik Authorized Support Partner (RASP) Specialization.  This exclusive specialization extends Rubrik’s world-class support through a small group of hand-picked partners with a proven track record in delivering level 1 and level 2 technical support.

Introducing Rubrik Go: Subscribe to Simplicity

Today, we’re thrilled to announce Rubrik Go, a new evergreen subscription purchasing program designed to help customers easily modernize their data centers. The program applies a SaaS approach and empowers customers to enjoy future innovation through one simple and predictable subscription license. With Rubrik Go, customers can easily access the latest data management technology through free evergreen refreshes, streamlined software editions, and the flexibility to migrate data to the public cloud at any time with no additional costs. A trend we’ve seen among our customers is that as they try to modernize their data centers or migrate to the cloud, many are held back by the lack of flexibility with traditional licensing. This traditional on-premises model typically results in higher capital expenditures, a challenge for companies restricted by annual budgets and the inability to commit to large upfront costs. On top of that, many customers are tired of trying to access the latest technology without battling price hikes, lengthy contract negotiations, and unpredictable renewals. For example, if customers wish to migrate data to the cloud, they often have to repurchase their on-premises license. Rubrik Go is designed to solve these challenges easily. To enable agile infrastructures, Rubrik Go offers a…
Rubrik -  - Incident Response

Incident Response

We would like to make you aware of an issue regarding customer support data. A sandbox customer support & success development environment containing a subset of our customer corporate contact information and support interaction data was inadvertently left accessible for a brief period of time. We investigated and rectified the issue immediately. We have confirmed that no customer-owned data was exposed. Impact This sandbox environment was being used to develop a new solution for customer experience. The sandbox data repository contained customer names, business contact information, support requests, in addition to customer support conversations. Again, we have confirmed that no customer-owned data was exposed. Root Cause Our investigation traced the cause to a developer error. The sandbox development data repository defaulted to a lower access security level and we failed to follow our standard security procedure to appropriately set the access control. To prevent this from happening again, we are rolling out stricter processes such as multiple levels of approvals and security reviews throughout the organization. We apologize for this incident. We are very serious about safeguarding customer information, and this is clearly unacceptable to us. We are continuing to review the situation to improve our processes. We will update this blog…

Drinking Our Own Champagne: Introducing Rubrik on Rubrik

Now, more than ever, IT is transforming from a supportive tool or insurance policy into a strategic business imperative. As someone who has been in the industry for over 20 years, it’s clear to me that we’re at a tipping point at which enterprises must quickly adapt their technologies to drive competitive edge and unlock new business value. I joined Rubrik as CIO last year to build an IT organization that enables the business processes, employee experience, and infrastructure needed to support the company’s unprecedented growth–while also delivering deep business intelligence and keeping us secure. Previously, I led Business Applications at VMware, where I drove IT transformation across people, process, and technology areas to achieve nimble and agile delivery. In other words, I’ve experienced firsthand the unprecedented speed at which data is growing and the challenge of massive data proliferation as we enter the cloud era. Today, CIOs need infrastructure flexibility and a comprehensive platform to manage all of their data, no matter where it resides. Rubrik was designed to address these challenges and has redefined the data protection industry, shifting the perception of what’s possible. That’s why we’re excited to share Rubrik on Rubrik. Using Rubrik to automate, manage,…
