Rubrik Datos IO Streaming Recovery: Near-Zero RTO for NoSQL Databases

Backup and recovery has been overlooked as backwaters of enterprise data. Innovations were incremental at best until the arrival of Rubrik, the company that led the world to rethink backup and recovery as the frontier of data management for cloud-connected enterprises. Data protection has long been a pain point for enterprises across industries. Applications built on top of traditional databases like Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, or IBM DB2 are generally stateful end-to-end. This means that whether you are recovering from media failures, site loss or user errors, you must first shutdown the application, recover the backend database, and reconnect your application before consumers can access it again. However, things are different in the world of next-generation applications that are deployed on modern distributed architectures such as NoSQL databases (MongoDB, Apache Cassandra, DataStax, CouchBase, Apache HBase, and many others). Shared-nothing architectures, eventually consistency nature of write operations, and scale-out capabilities force us to rethink NoSQL backup and recovery. But probably the most important aspect is the shear scale of data sets that are stored and maintained in these modern NoSQL databases. These databases power a number of modern enterprise use cases, including Internet of Things (IoT), security/customer real-time analytics, customer 360…

Introducing Rubrik + VMware Cloud on AWS

At Rubrik, we prioritize customer engagement and focus on tailoring our roadmap to our users’ specific needs. When speaking with our customers, we discovered that many are investigating or using VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC) for a variety of use cases. Most commonly, users leverage VMC as a Disaster Recovery site or a place to run production workloads. But once our customers have workloads running in VMware Cloud on AWS, they need an easy way to protect those workloads against data loss or corruption. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that Rubrik has validated Cloud Cluster to protect VMware Cloud on AWS as a fully-supported solution. The validation is a testament to Rubrik’s commitment to building strong joint solutions and supporting the modern enterprise ecosystem. The integration gives Rubrik users the ability to manage both on-prem and VMC workloads from a single solution. All of Rubrik’s values such as data reduction, archive, and search are included.

Performing DBCC Health Checks with SQL Server Live Mount

For many organizations, Microsoft SQL Server supports their most critical applications and has become a key component for modernizing their data center. However, managing and protecting SQL workloads is often a cumbersome and inefficient process. That’s why Rubrik pioneered Live Mount capabilities for SQL Server, which enables SQL recoveries and clones in seconds. Rubrik’s SQL Server Live Mount brings many benefits to organizations and is best known for providing fast item-level recovery. But Live Mount is also a powerful tool for accelerating app development, supporting many testing and development scenarios. Under the Hood of SQL Server Live Mount Many Rubrik customers chose to utilize SQL Server Live Mount for testing and development use cases due to its high efficiency. With Live Mount, there is no need to provision storage resources for point-in-time (PIT) database copies, nor is there a need to wait for complete PIT copies to traverse the network. This efficiency is achieved by utilizing Rubrik’s resources as the underlying storage that hosts our database file structure. The PIT backups, along with any transaction logs, are replayed and presented to the SQL Server of choice via an SMB 3.0 share. The RBS then creates a new database on the…
