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…

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…
