Rubrik -  - Riding the Wave at AWS re:Invent

Riding the Wave at AWS re:Invent

Cloud computing is riding a wave to become the norm for all enterprises, with AWS as the current leader. Amazon recently reported its third quarter earnings, and despite the mixed results, its AWS cloud computing business unit has continued to experience exponential growth. AWS revenues grew 46% and is well on its way to becoming a $30 billion business in 2019. Rubrik, of course, is no stranger to rapid growth in the cloud. From day one, Rubrik has focused on its vision to be the world’s leading Cloud Data Management company, and we have been relentless in building a solution that helps our customers ride the wave in their journey to the public cloud. Along the way, we’ve built a strong partnership with AWS and have been recognized as a member of the AWS Partner Network. We also recently achieved the coveted AWS Storage Competency designation, which validates our approach and commitment to a deeper integration with AWS services. It’s been rewarding seeing our joint customers solve their biggest challenges with our growing portfolio of cloud services for AWS. We extended our cloud story this year by acquiring Datos IO, a market leader in data management for cloud applications built…

Think You’re Ready for Digital Transformation? Set up for Success with Rubrik Andes 5.0

Digital transformation is top-of-mind for every enterprise. Recent research predicts that by the end of 2019, digital transformation spending will be up 42% from 2017.* At its core, digital transformation means using technology to automate manual processes in order to respond to the market faster. It’s critical for driving key business outcomes such as enabling employees to develop products, delighting customers with rich experiences, and outpacing competition–all while streamlining operations for cost-efficiencies. But in reality, enterprises are still in the infancy stage of their journey. From the beginning, Rubrik was architected to provide the foundation necessary for transitioning into a digital-first company. Here’s how we’ve helped our customers accelerate their digital transformation so far: API-driven automation: CIOs are constantly looking for ways to increase automation to deliver IT-as-a-Service and empower their organization beyond IT. Rubrik was built to be API-first, meaning that everything we do is available over our RESTful APIs. This enables admins to leverage self-service so they can focus on more strategic business goals–faster product development, improved operational efficiencies, and building competitive edge. AI-driven ransomware detection: A ransomware attack is no longer a question of if but when and can be detrimental to any business. Radar, our newest…

Back-to-Back Champions: Rubrik Wins VMworld Best of Show 2018, 2017

Rubrik is honored to have Radar, its newest Polaris application, receive two Best of VMworld 2018 U.S. awards: the Gold Award for Security and Best of Show. This marks the second year in a row that we’ve been named Best of Show, and the third year we’ve won a Gold at a VMworld conference. These awards recognize the most innovative new products in the server virtualization, cloud, and end-user computing markets. This year, a panel of industry experts evaluated 75 products in areas such as innovation, performance, ease of use and manageability, and ability to fill a market gap. Each year, the judges select one product as Best of Show, which “represents the best of the best” among the winners in previous categories. We’re humbled to be considered alongside many innovative companies and view this achievement as a testament to our leadership in the data management and security spaces. To win the Gold Award for security, Radar was weighed against many disruptive products that “monitor and protect hypervisors, cloud workloads, guest OSes and virtual networks and enforce security best practices.” The judges commented that Radar showed we “gave serious thought to security and ransomware monitoring in the data protection space.”…
Rubrik -  - Introducing Rubrik’s Corporate Social Responsibility Program

Introducing Rubrik’s Corporate Social Responsibility Program

At Rubrik, we’re committed to building a culture that empowers employees both in the workplace and beyond. We saw firsthand the benefits of giving back last year at VMworld, where we raised $15,000 for the Kevin Durant Charity Foundation. It was clear that this cause had a significant impact on employee morale and the community, and it inspired us to find a way to build philanthropy into our core values. Today, we’re excited to launch Rubrik Beyond Work (RBW), our official Corporate Social Responsibility Program. As part of this program, Rubrik will devote 1% of employee time annually to giving back. The goal is to extend our core business values to communities in need and enact positive, lasting change. Guided by Rubrik’s company values–Relentlessness, Integrity, Velocity, Excellence, and Transparency (RIVET)–we pledge to invest our people, time, and resources in activities that benefit society at large. These are the foundational goals of RBW: Make giving back a priority. Amidst our rapid growth, we are reinforcing a spirit of engagement and empathy into our institutional framework. Do our life’s best work. Rubrik is young, but we move quickly and with purpose. To fully live up to our value of “excellence,” we must…
Rubrik -  - Right Product, Right Team, Right Time: Why I Joined Rubrik

Right Product, Right Team, Right Time: Why I Joined Rubrik

During my 25 years at Cisco, the key trait that helped us stay ahead of the competition was the ability to reimagine ourselves and spot market transitions long before others saw them coming. And in today’s digital world, those market transitions are happening faster and more frequently than ever before. From farming, to manufacturing, to customer engagement – everything that we know is changing right before our eyes. The byproduct of this digital revolution is that companies are now generating data at an exponential rate. In this new world, data is a company’s most valuable asset, after their employees, of course. But companies have relied on outdated legacy technology to manage and protect that data. The result, as you might expect, isn’t pretty—it’s a cumbersome, time-consuming process that stifles innovation and keeps companies from focusing on what really matters. Rubrik co-founder and CEO Bipul Sinha saw this market transition coming. In just four years, he’s built a company on a clear path to becoming a multibillion-dollar business and one of the world’s next great enterprise technology companies. That’s why I’m thrilled to announce today that I’ve joined the Rubrik team as both a board advisor and a personal investor. The…

Rubrik -  - Introducing Radar: Faster Recovery from Ransomware

Introducing Radar: Faster Recovery from Ransomware

Ransomware is on the rise, and it’s only getting smarter. Recent research shows ransomware attacks grew more than 350% annually.* To defend against attacks, many companies typically focus on building a perimeter to prevent malware from ever entering their data center. However, as malware becomes increasingly sophisticated, it’s no longer a matter of if  but when an organization will be hit by an attack. While building a perimeter is essential, preventing every threat, every time, across every surface area is a near-impossible task. In fact, 71% of organizations were hit by ransomware after it successfully bypassed their detection and prevention measures.** Once an attack breaks through your defenses, bouncing back quickly is painful. For many IT professionals, this will bring to mind long nights spent trying to detect an attack, analyze the extent of the damage, and restore quickly from backup files. Resiliency should be stronger, and recovery should be faster. The most effective strategy for defending against ransomware is a defense in depth. This approach encompasses a holistic, multi-level ransomware response strategy that incorporates both prevention measures to keep threats out and strong resiliency to minimize downtime when an attack happens. Meet Radar: Recover Faster. Stay Smarter. We’ve been…

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…
