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 working with technical engineers and architects to execute upon strategic goals for their data center initiatives. For business stakeholders, the VMware Ready endorsement and inclusion in the VMware Solution Exchange adds yet another level of comfort and risk mitigation to our products – especially since Rubrik is the first Converged Data Management stack to do so.

For folks at VMworld Barcelona this week, come find us at Booth G208. I’ll also be presenting a Rubrik Tech Deep Dive (STO6287) at 12:30 pm on Wednesday.
