Rubrik -  - Announcing the New Rubrik Master Technical Certification

Announcing the New Rubrik Master Technical Certification

The past week was a whirlwind for the team here at Rubrik. We’ve toured through Europe to chat with press (New Statesman Tech, Compare the Cloud, etc.), distributors, partners, and customers (such as Totaljobs Group Ltd) as part of our official EMEA launch event. The energy and excitement for Rubrik is palpable – alleviating the pain of legacy architecture and helping businesses embrace the next generation of converged data management to solve concrete problems that plague companies today.As Rubrik enters more data As Rubrik enters more data centers across the globe, we felt the need to further empower our channel partners’ engineers from a technical perspective. While it’s certainly true that our solution is incredibly simple to deploy, consume, and scale (because of all the smarts baked into the fabric), engineers always want to pull back the covers and understand how any solution works at a deeper level. We agree. Knowledge is an asset when doing data center design against the functional design concepts – requirements, constraints, and assumptions – that are used to craft meaningful IT. And so, I’d like to introduce the world to the Rubrik Master (RM) Certification program. Rubrik Master is a project that my team…

Rubrik -  - Just Backup and Chill with a No More Flaky Backups Kit

Just Backup and Chill with a No More Flaky Backups Kit

Next-generation solutions are cutting a wide swath through the modern data center because they fundamentally pivot how we think about and execute upon technology. At Rubrik, we’ve set pinpoint focus on making the world of data protection – backup and restores, disaster recovery, and searchable archives – as simple and intuitive as possible. This means abandoning the legacy architecture approaches that only bring incremental improvements to the table, and instead creating a new, ground-up solution that encompasses a scale-out design, convergence between software and hardware, and a breathtaking user experience. Quite simply, you deserve a platform that has abstracted away all of the imperative muck that surrounds typical backup jobs. If your data protection platform is designed to be intelligent, it can be fed declarative statements into a policy engine and do the remaining work on your behalf. This is how Rubrik operates, and it paves the way for bringing performance, testability, and reliability to your end-to-end protection plans. In the spirit of creating something fun to demonstrate this point, the team has created a video entitled Just Backup and Chill to showcase the frustrations encountered with legacy backup infrastructure. If this strikes a chord with you, share the link with a…

Rubrik -  - It’s Official: Rubrik is VMware Ready!

It’s Official: Rubrik is VMware Ready!

We all enjoy adding new, innovative technology solutions to our data centers to increase productivity, solve difficult challenges, and gain a competitive edge in the market. However, this often requires a bit of a balancing act against the risk of making changes to the status quo – both in terms of the technology used and assuaging stakeholders that financially critical workloads will continue to function. In the case of Rubrik’s Converged Data Management solution, the r300 Series Hybrid Cloud Appliance, adoption has been spectacular and customers have shared some really snazzy feedback on how their operations and work-life balance has improved. We sweep away a very large set of the complexity surrounding data protection, disaster recovery, and workload restores, allowing IT professionals to innovate their skill sets and processes. The large number of customer testimonials we feature certainly help back up our claims, but there’s still more we can do! Today, I’m really excited to share that we’re making data center adoption of Rubrik’s flagship product line even easier with the announcement of our VMware Ready endorsement. This is VMware’s highest level of endorsement and requires passing a grueling battery of testing and standards requirements, proving that we’re fully invested in…

VMworld LEGO Giveaway of Epic Proportions

It must be nearly time for VMworld, because I’m tingly with excitement. From Opening Acts through vBacon, the community glow this annual virtualization event puts out is both educational and energizing. Hopefully, you’ve managed to secure your pass and find a hotel that doesn’t require both legs and arms for the nightly deposit. And remember folks – avoid the Tenderloin! On a related topic, you might have noticed me dropping some epic Star Wars LEGO sets at various VMware User Group events as Rubrik giveaways for those in attendance. And there’s a mountain more where that came from! In fact, my co-presenter Arvind “Nitro” Nithrakashyap and myself have picked out our favorite sets from the Battle of Hoth series! I’m going to call this photo Serious Business to reflect our somber moods. 😉 What does this all have to do with VMworld? Here’s the scoop – I’ve painstakingly collected all of the Battle of Hoth Star Wars LEGO sets from Episode V. And one lucky winner can take them all home (or we’ll ship them to you)! Simply sign up and attend our session at VMworld entitled Instant Application Recovery and DevOps Infrastructure for VMware Environments – A Technical Deep Dive for a…
Rubrik -  - Welcoming Chris Wahl to Rubrik

Welcoming Chris Wahl to Rubrik

Today at Virtualization Field Day 5 (#VFD5) we were thrilled to welcome the newest member of the Rubrik family, Chris Wahl. Chris is a respected voice in next-generation data center technologies and has earned his reputation in the community over the past decade with hands-on experience with enterprise infrastructure design, service orchestration, and data center automation. However, many of us know Chris through his blog, Wahl Network, which ranks in the Top 10 Virtualization Blogs and has earned the favorite independent blogger designation for three years running. He’s also led and presented at VMware User Groups (VMUGs) across the globe, co-authored Networking for VMware Administrators, and holds two VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX) certifications. The Opportunity Ahead So, why did Rubrik and Chris join forces? “For far too long, backup and recovery has been a neglected corner of the data center,” Wahl says. “Recent technology breakthroughs have opened the door for Rubrik to create a simple solution that abstracts away the vast majority of data protection road blocks. It’s an extremely exciting time to be working in this space.” We couldn’t agree more. Getting the Word Out on Rubrik There’s no excuse for complex, brittle architectures, frustrating user experiences and worst of all…

Rubric for Building Rubrik

“Heroes get remembered, but legends never die,” Babe Ruth famously said. When we came together to form Rubrik, we envisioned creating a long-lasting, successful company. Company building for the long haul entails examining and designing every aspect of the business carefully. Delivering great products is only half the equation. How we achieve it is equally, if not more, important. A Fresh Perspective Innovation is the reason for our existence. We are fanatical about making our customers’ lives better by building game-changing products. Achieving user delight through simplicity makes our world go round. We identify core issues, and use a fresh new approach to solve these problems. Case in point: our engineers come mostly from the consumer world (Facebook, Google) and use these learnings to solve deep enterprise infrastructure problems. We care more about capability than experience. Enduring Institution We are building an institution that is meritocratic, risk-taking, and transparent. Our team is a melting pot of diverse talents, experience, and culture. Lunch at Rubrik is like a big, noisy Sunday family dinner—everybody eats together. We foster collaboration and facilitate communication by sharing an open workspace and using tools like Slack. Design Orientation Design is core to our DNA. This goes…
