What challenges were you experiencing with your legacy solution?
As we experienced significant growth, we needed a data management solution that met our scalability needs while providing operational efficiency. We needed a robust IT infrastructure to support our network of more than 230,000 healthcare professionals. Additionally, we were looking for a solution to support our production environment with Nutanix consisting of 2,400 VMs.

Why Rubrik?
As we began to evaluate new solutions, it was clear that Rubrik was the best solution for our needs. One of the reasons we chose Rubrik was for its easy integration with any cloud. In the future, we plan to set up archival to cloud. It also provided high performance and a scale-out architecture while ensuring all our data was secure throughout its lifecycle.

We now use Rubrik for automated backup, disaster recovery, replication, and search. We also deployed Rubrik because it works across all our apps. It protect both our entire virtual and physical environment. In one platform, we can easily manage and gain visibility into all our applications.

What results have you seen with Rubrik?

  • 65% faster backup performance: We are seeing much higher backup performance with over 20% faster full backup and over 65% faster incremental backup for a large VM.
  • Significantly faster recoveries: With Rubrik’s Google-like search, it is easy to recover quickly with reduced time delivering 30% faster recoveries.
  • 70% management time savings: We have reduced the time spent on backup. Now, backup only takes minutes, freeing up our time and resources to work on other important projects.
