The Power of Recovery from Long-Term Archive

In the world of backup and recovery today, there are many methods of copying data and ways to store that data. Whether you are sending data to Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, Object Storage, NFS, or Tape, there should be a policy-driven and simple way to accomplish it. Most IT pundits talk about how important it is to backup or archive data; very seldom do they talk about ways of recovering data regardless of location. Rubrik provides a variety of methods to recover virtual or physical machines and restore protected data. Archiving snapshots is a method used to provide cost-effective long-term storage of snapshot data outside of the local Rubrik cluster transparently to the user. There is no need to schedule jobs or tasks to archive data and, regardless of location, all data is accessible from the same search interfaces. Rubrik deduplicates and compresses data before archiving, and encryption is used to encrypt all archive data. Even when archived, a Rubrik cluster can transparently recover a source virtual machine (VM) and mount a point-in-time copy of the source VM. A VM can be recovered by using any of the standard Rubrik data protection methods. Backups are stored on a local Rubrik…

Today, we are excited to announce that Rubrik has agreed to acquire Datos IO, a market leader in application-aware data management for cloud applications built on NoSQL databases and big data file systems. Rubrik and Datos IO share a common vision of building a cloud data management control plane that can automate, orchestrate, and secure data anywhere.

Built for Government: Rubrik Achieves DODIN APL Certification

Today, I’m thrilled to announce that Rubrik has become the first Cloud Data Management platform to be certified by the U.S. Department of Defense Information Network Approved Products List (DODIN APL). This certification, which placed us under the CyberSecurity Tools category, reflects Rubrik’s commitment to building a secure, next-generation platform for government agencies. As the only backup and recovery solution on the Approved Products List, we are excited by the opportunity to further support defense agencies in modernizing their infrastructure and on-ramping to the cloud. The DODIN APL provides a consolidated list of products that are approved for purchase after rigorous evaluation. DOD components are required to fulfill their system needs only through APL listed products, meaning that the APL must be consulted prior to purchasing a system or product. By meeting the strict security standards, Rubrik’s solutions can immediately be used within existing government networks and streamlines the purchase process for customers. In alignment with this certification, Rubrik’s technology also supports compliance with the Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) and Modernizing Government Technology Act (MGT) mandates. These require agencies to improve their infrastructure to be more efficient, secure, resilient, and cost-effective, particularly through increased cloud adoption. The mandates provide…
