Rubrik -  - 2017 in Review: Tech Innovation & Industry Recognition

2017 in Review: Tech Innovation & Industry Recognition

With ten product releases in under four years, Rubrik has experienced tremendous growth as a company and as a technology. This development has come with recognition from leading publications such as Forbes, TechTarget, and CRN, which I find both exciting and extremely humbling. The Technical Marketing team at Rubrik had interesting thoughts around these accolades that I wanted to share with the community. We see value in diving deeper into these acknowledgements, as they provide insight into the changing landscape of enterprise technology and the modern problems organizations are trying to solve. Forbes Cloud 100 Kenneth Hui @kenhuiny For an emerging company such as Rubrik, an award from an organization like Forbes is both a validation of our company’s vision and a recognition of our ability to execute on that vision. That highlights the significance of Rubrik being placed among the top 40 companies in the Forbes Cloud 100 list. As a technologist at Rubrik, seeing our name among other top companies innovating cloud solutions confirms that our goal to simplify cloud data management is resonating with users. Data management has always been difficult and has only grown more so with the explosive growth of digital data. The Cloud has…
Rubrik -  - Recap: Rubrik’s First EMEA Partner Conference

Recap: Rubrik’s First EMEA Partner Conference

One of the reasons why I joined Rubrik was the channel DNA in our company. At Rubrik, we believe that the channel is a key success factor for scaling and building something epic. Since day one, we’ve been 100% channel driven. With this strategy, we have been able to welcome the “best of the best” partners from around the world to our Rubrik channel family. It was with this mindset that we decided to hold our first EMEA Partner Conference, which took place in the beautiful city of Lisbon. From 20th to 22nd of September, we had an opportunity to meet with our partners and demonstrate our channel commitment. The theme of the conference was Full Throttle, which is exactly what all of our partners are doing every day with us in the field – we go together the extra mile! We invited our TOP 50 partners from all over EMEA to share the experience with peers from across regions, learn how to create even more momentum with Rubrik, hear from our executives first hand, and align with our vision and strategy. One goal of the conference was to ensure that all partners left the conference with a clear answer…

VMworld 2017: A Tale of Two Cities

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for the Rubrik team. We’ve experienced the bright lights and excitement of Las Vegas and the historic architecture and rich culture of Barcelona. While VMworld US and VMworld Europe may have had different backdrops, and over 9,000 km of distance between them, their atmosphere was equally as inspiring. As VMware has been integral to our solution from the get go, VMworld is always an exciting time for us. This year was no exception. There were surprise announcements, thought provoking keynote speeches, intriguing breakout sessions, and unforgettable parties. VMworld 2017 has been a stage of innovation for the cloud generation, from its essential role in digital transformation to the technologies that make it secure. An unavoidable theme this year was ‘change’. We’re in a digital period of accelerated transformation, which is – as far as anyone can guess – set to continue. From the very first keynote speech in Las Vegas to the closing sessions in Barcelona, themes of cloud, mobility, networking, and security reigned supreme. After all, they are the topics reshaping all industries at the moment. The opening keynotes, in both Las Vegas and Barcelona, addressed this overarching theme of change, referencing…

Rubrik Hosts Kevin Durant at VMworld Las Vegas 2017

It has been an action-packed month for Rubrik. After only three and a half years in business, we were named a Visionary in the Gartner 2017 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup & Recovery Solutions and reached a $150M annualized run rate. We achieved Advanced Partner Status with AWS and launched a Global Service Delivery Partner program.

Rubrik -  - Fireside Chat with Randy Schirman, Rubrik VP of WW Channel & Service Delivery Partner Sales

Fireside Chat with Randy Schirman, Rubrik VP of WW Channel & Service Delivery Partner Sales

Randy Schirman joined Rubrik in May 2017 to lead its worldwide service delivery partner sales. Since then, he has created a Service Delivery Partner Program at Rubrik that enables service providers, systems integrators, IT Outsourcers, and Hosting companies to offer differentiated services, enable new revenue streams, and drive superior products and performance. Randy brings over 15 years of executive experience, which includes building service provider & systems integration business units, along with leading WW channels and sales organizations within the data communications industry. You had a successful and promising career as the Chief Revenue Officer of Optanix. Before that, you were VP of Worldwide Sales at Talari Networks and Sr. VP of Worldwide Channels at Riverbed. Why did you decide to join Rubrik? As I had opportunity to discuss the market and Rubrik’s vision of a go-to-market solution with the management team, curiosity became interest, which evolved to a passion.  So, many partners delivering legacy services such as BaaS, DRaaS, and IaaS are searching for the ability to differentiate their brand in market. I was drawn in by the opportunity to create a program and align business, financial, and technical solutions from a born-in-the cloud perspective versus retrofitting a legacy company to try a…
Rubrik -  - Get Ready for Rubrik at VMworld 2017!

Get Ready for Rubrik at VMworld 2017!

I’ve had the pleasure of attending a large swath of VMworld conferences over the years. It’s usually a hectic week in which I see many familiar faces within the virtualization community while also trying earnestly to meet new folks who want to chat about technology, career growth, or Game of Thrones. One overtone to the general chaos at VMware’s flagship event is having fun with the folks at Rubrik as we attempt to balance the joys of passing out LEGO kits with sharing knowledge on various techy bits. I’ve had the extreme pleasure of discussing Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management solution while giving back to the community in various Top 10 rated sessions such as Getting Started with PowerShell and PowerCLI for Your VMware Environment. But this year is different since I have an amazingly talented team of Technical Marketing Engineers who have blown the doors off whatever I could come up with solo! Here’s a quick rundown of where you’ll find us all during the VMworld 2017 U.S. conference. We hope to see you at our sessions, the Rubrik booth (#412), and our super slick VIP VMworld Party! Make sure to say hello, as we’ll be handing out some sticker swag and other…
Rubrik -  - The Vision Is Bright: Rubrik Named a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant

The Vision Is Bright: Rubrik Named a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant

We are honored to announce that Gartner has named Rubrik a “Visionary” in its 2017 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions. We are entering after only three years of operations in a category that hasn’t welcomed a new vendor since 2014, an unprecedented trajectory. This is a testament to our focus on innovation and customer success. Rubrik is disrupting a previously underserved industry composed of complex and brittle solutions. Rubrik Cloud Data Management was architected to dramatically simplify data management and enable new data services anytime, anywhere, regardless of infrastructure. With a $150 million bookings run rate after only eight quarters of selling, it is clear that the market demand is on our direction. We believe our modern approach has changed the way enterprise customers think about backup and recovery, and the potential of application data when it can be delivered reliably anytime, anywhere. Our solution supports all major enterprise production environments – virtual, physical, or cloud. Rubrik Alta, our ninth and most significant product release, rounds out this support with Hyper-V, Nutanix AHV, native Oracle, and SQL. The release also introduced Live Mount for SQL, a capability that has never been offered by any other solution.…
