Rubrik was built on a foundational goal of helping the world’s largest enterprises untap new value from their backup data, an act we’ve coined data leverage. Data leverage is about activating your data exponentially through rich metadata to out-innovate competition. As Gartner puts it, “The move toward public cloud, heightened concerns over ransomware, and complexities associated with backup and data management are forcing I&O leaders to rearchitect their backup infrastructure and explore alternative solutions.” 

We’re honored to announce that Rubrik has been named a “Leader” in the Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions. We have been positioned furthest in completeness in vision–a recognition that we believe demonstrates not only our global team’s ability to come up with radical ideas but quickly bring these innovations to market with precision and excellence.

From our perspective, this accomplishment builds upon our successes and developments introduced over the last year. Here’s a rundown of our latest advancements:

Enhanced Performance, Flexibility, and Compliance for Enterprise Environments 

Rubrik Andes 5.2, now Generally Available, helps enterprise customers improve performance, facilitate security and compliance, and minimize complexity at a massive scale. Enhancements include turbocharged VMware performance with multi-node data streaming (boost backup speed by up to 5x for monster, multi-terabyte VMs) and drastically increased restore speed for VMware vSphere. Network glitches no longer have to keep you up at night with Rubrik’s embedded resiliency, which helps ensure swift VMware backup and recoveries.

DBAs enjoy more power and control with improved flexible recovery options for Oracle databases that are built around common, day-to-day recovery scenarios. Andes 5.2 also delivers two new features to ensure IT and compliance are in harmony throughout the data lifecycle: flexible data retention and legal hold.

New Cloud Innovations for the Data-Forward Enterprise

At FORWARD, our inaugural user conference that attracted nearly 8,000 virtual IT professionals, we announced breakthrough cloud advancements to our Rubrik Polaris Data Management Platform, all delivered as SaaS applications (goodbye infrastructure headaches). 

Customers have long-loved our cloud-native support for AWS and Azure, and we’ve followed up with Rubrik Polaris Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Protection, empowering users to automate data lifecycle management across hundreds of GCP projects and regions while meeting aggressive RTOs. We’ve also extended our robust AWS protection to support Amazon RDS, ensuring app availability across availability zones and enabling minute-level, point-in-time recoveries with transaction logs. Customers have already radically simplified Microsoft 365 protection for email and calendar with Rubrik Polaris, and now they can securely recover files and folders for Microsoft 365 OneDrive protection. 

These groundbreaking enhancements are built from talking to our customers and gaining deep knowledge of their biggest pain points and objectives. Over 2,500 customers around the world trust Rubrik to protect, automate, and govern their applications at massive scale–all via a seamless fabric across data centers and clouds. This is just the beginning of how we can help enterprises get more from their data, and we look forward to bringing even more innovations to the market.
