We’re a patient-focused group, and IT plays a critical role in providing the best patient care and services to our employees.

To support our network of hospitals and patients, we needed a single, secure data management solution for the centres that the Group has in four autonomous communities: Madrid, Galicia, Castilla-La Mancha, and Castilla y León.

Chapters Health System Chooses Rubrik to Combat Ransomware and Manage Nutanix AHV Environment

Headquartered in Temple Terrace, Florida, Chapters Health System is a principal provider of care for persons affected by advanced and life-limiting illnesses. As one of the country’s first post-acute care systems, Chapters Health is a progressive leader in the delivery of hospice, palliative care, and home health services. Each year, Chapters Health delivers hundreds of thousands of healthcare services across eight counties in West Central Florida through its inpatient and outpatient locations. Chris Williams, Director of IT Operations at Chapters Health, and Mike Parkin, Director of IT Security, discuss how Rubrik protects against the threat of Ransomware and empowers their multi-hypervisor strategy. What challenges were you experiencing with data protection? CW: We were concerned with the growing threat of Ransomware, particularly given the prevalence of attacks targeting hospitals and healthcare systems. The previous solution also failed to provide adequate visibility, which resulted in us needing to physically call the vendor to check the status of a backup. Conducting maintenance was a pain, too. Every new software update would result in issues with our agents or logs not being truncated. MP: We wanted to implement Nutanix AHV, which, with our previous vendor, would have forced us to purchase additional hardware and…

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…

Rubrik delivers that speed and modernizes our IT infrastructure. What challenges were you experiencing with your legacy solution?

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. If the business wanted tight RTOs and RPOs, it would have been tough to meet them. It could take one day to restore a mission-critical system, which negatively impacted our business.

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…
