NWS Holdings Limited, headquartered in Hong Kong, is an infrastructure and service flagship of New World Development Company. The company has businesses and investments in Hong Kong and Mainland China with a diverse portfolio that includes toll roads, environmental management, aviation projects, healthcare services, construction, and public transport. Jacky Po and Benjamin Chan, IT Managers at NWS Holdings, discuss how their team leverages Rubrik for cost-efficiency and improved backup performance. What is the IT environment at NWS Holdings? BC: A two-person team supports the entire company’s west office infrastructure and staff. Our environment is 80% virtualized and runs approximately 80 VMs. Our team is primarily focused on achieving reliable data protection and data management agility so that we can scale. What challenges were you experiencing with data protection? BC: We previously relied on fragmented multi-point solutions that lacked scalability. Expanding our environment required substantial planning, as well as additive licensing and hardware costs. Our previous vendor also did not support global deduplication, which led to high storage overhead. In addition, backups were complex and time consuming, and required manual scheduling to accommodate expansion. How has backup and recovery improved with Rubrik? JP: Rubrik delivers hands-free management through an SLA policy…

An eight-person IT team supports approximately 400 employees, as well as our entire customer base. What challenges were you experiencing with your previous solution? Prior to Rubrik, we relied on multiple legacy solutions, which was increasingly complex and time-consuming to manage.

Berkeley College Reduces Costs and Integrates with Microsoft Azure with Rubrik

Berkeley College is a private higher education institution that provides academic programs in more than 20 career fields. Today, it has more than 8,000 students at its 9 campuses. Leonard De Botton, CIO, and Joseph Pagano, Director of Infrastructure at Berkeley College, talk about how they reduced time spent managing backup, decreased TCO by 33%, and setup data archival to Microsoft Azure with Rubrik. What challenges were you experiencing with your previous backup solution? Our previous solution wasn’t built for the cloud era. We were protecting data with old age backup when we had new age virtualized servers. Backup administration was complex and time intensive. For instance, backups could take three days on one server, were unstable, and failures occurred frequently. Additionally, replication was cumbersome and complex, requiring us to manually configure processes. Lastly, tape was highly inefficient, expensive, and time consuming. We were unable to set up public cloud with our old vendor. Why Rubrik? We needed more stability and efficiency as well as a solution that could take us to public cloud. We were looking for a solution that could backup in the time frame that we needed. We wanted to backup every 2 hours, but traditional systems…

CAN Capital Replaces Legacy Architecture with a Modern Approach to Data Management

Aileen Wyer, VP of Technical Support, and Maruf Rahman, Senior System Administrator, recently sat down with us to discuss how our partnership helped to modernize CAN Capital’s legacy backup infrastructure to simplify data management. Tell me about CAN Capital and your role. Aileen: CAN Capital has been providing access to working capital to small businesses for over 18 years. I have been with the company for 10 years. In 2016, I moved into tech support and infrastructure management. Our environment at CAN Capital is mostly virtualized with 120 VMs. We have also begun virtualizing our physical servers. We are a small team with only one person dedicated to systems. Having a simple, easy-to-use system is very important to us to reduce the time spent on backup and recovery. Why were you investigating a new solution for backup and recovery? Aileen: One of the first things I noticed when moving into this new role is that we had a lot of legacy systems. A big concern was the lack of backups in production. We had a solution that was extremely expensive and could not backup everything we backup now. We were just backing up systems that were crucial instead of all…

Tampa Bay Rays on Pitching a Perfect Game with Rubrik

Juan Ramirez, Vice President of Information Technology at the Tampa Bay Rays, discusses how Rubrik transformed the game of data management, ensuring operations run smoothly both during the season and offseason. Tell me about your role at Tampa Bay Rays. I’m the Vice President of Information Technology at the Tampa Bay Rays and am responsible for the Rays’ technology strategies and operations. I joined the team in 2006 and am heading into my 10th season. When I joined the department, it was just myself and an assistant. Since then, the department has grown greatly from 2 to 12 people. What challenges were you experiencing with backup prior to Rubrik? Backup has always been an issue around here. Our previous solution was very cumbersome, and since our business grows so fast and is very sensitive, keeping up with the changes on a daily basis was a struggle. Particularly, we had a lot issues with tape and backing up to disk. Also, the recovery and response times were never there. We have 350 VMs, and we try to protect as much as we can. The baseball operations and workloads are the most important to us. Thus, if anyone needs to restore a…

AERTEC Solutions, headquartered in Málaga, Spain, is an international engineering and consulting company specialized in aeronautics with projects covering more than 100 airports across 39 countries. Jesús Viciana, Information Technology Director at AERTEC Solutions, chats with me on building a stronger disaster recovery strategy and freeing up time for innovation with Rubrik. What challenges were you experiencing with your previous solution? As we transitioned to a fully virtualized environment, we wanted to move away from legacy infrastructure. Our previous backup software was very complex and difficult to manage. Our backups were failing. Additionally, we had to run all our operations on extremely slow servers.  It was impossible to work with. Last year, we ran into a massive problem when we upgraded to VMware vSphere 6.0. There was a bug in the databases, and when we tried to recover from our backups, the data became corrupt. From a business point of view, it was unacceptable. We started looking for another solution in the market that was more reliable for disaster recovery. Why Rubrik? We needed a solution that maximized the value of our business and ensured recoverability in case of a failure. Rubrik is a powerful tool that was easy to…
