AERTEC Solutions Ensures Business Continuity and Innovation with Rubrik

AERTEC Solutions, headquartered in Málaga, Spain, is an international engineering and consulting company specialized in aeronautics with projects covering more than 100 airports across 39 countries. Jesús Viciana, Information Technology Director at AERTEC Solutions, chats with me on building a stronger disaster recovery strategy and freeing up time for innovation with Rubrik. What challenges were you experiencing with your previous solution? As we transitioned to a fully virtualized environment, we wanted to move away from legacy infrastructure. Our previous backup software was very complex and difficult to manage. Our backups were failing. Additionally, we had to run all our operations on extremely slow servers.  It was impossible to work with. Last year, we ran into a massive problem when we upgraded to VMware vSphere 6.0. There was a bug in the databases, and when we tried to recover from our backups, the data became corrupt. From a business point of view, it was unacceptable. We started looking for another solution in the market that was more reliable for disaster recovery. Why Rubrik? We needed a solution that maximized the value of our business and ensured recoverability in case of a failure. Rubrik is a powerful tool that was easy to…

Rubrik Raises $180 Million at $1.3 Billion – Why it Matters

This past week, we announced that we raised $180 million at a $1.3 billion valuation. The round is led by IVP (same folks who invested in Slack, Snapchat, AppDynamics, MuleSoft) with strong participation from our existing investors Lightspeed Venture Partners and Greylock Partners. Why raise another round? We have not even dipped into the $61 million from Series C since we’ve been judiciously fueling our hyper-growth with cash flow. Simply put, Rubrik is growing extremely fast. We’ve grown our employees by more than 15x in the past two years. We’ve expanded to 5 continents in 5 quarters. We approached $100 million in bookings in just six quarters of selling. We’ve amassed a customer base numbering into several hundred enterprises, with huge penetration into the Fortune 500 and large governments. When several investors approached us to pre-empt the next round of funding, my co-founders and I saw the opportunity to double down on accelerating our business at a rate that the industry has not seen before. The market demand is there and we can further amplify our innovation lead by investing heavily in R&D. To date, we have rolled out 8 product releases with the latest managing data for cloud-native applications while…

Integrating Rubrik with Redhat Cloudforms Through Ansible Automation

One of Rubrik’s principle tenants is integrated automation made possible by its rich suite of RESTful APIs. Rubrik follows an API-first architecture to enable infrastructure automation with third party services, including simplification of data management tasks and integration with configuration management tools. One example of custom workflows with Rubrik’s APIs is with VMware vRealize Automation. In this post, I will demonstrate another example of automated orchestration with Rubrik with Redhat Cloudforms and Ansible. Introducing Redhat CloudForms and Ansible Tower As of Redhat Cloudforms version 4.1, Ansible Tower is natively integrated. With this integration, Red Hat CloudForms leverages the automation capabilities of Ansible, enabling Ansible Job Templates to be launched from CloudForms Service Catalog as a Service Item. Ansible Tower is a configuration management tool designed to help automate infrastructure operations. Ansible Tower features management of host inventory, Ansible playbooks, access keys and passwords, as well as detailed reporting and auditing of infrastructure deployments. CloudForms is a hybrid cloud management platform based on the ManageIQ community. CloudForms provides a myriad of functions that include: Monitoring and tracking Capacity management and planning Resource usage and optimization Workload life-cycle management Policies to govern access and usage Self-service portal and catalog Controls to manage…

Rubrik, How Are My SLAs Doing?

At Rubrik, we hold a hackathon every year so that engineers have an opportunity to work on their creative ideas. Hackathon projects can include product features, productivity related improvements, and exploratory concepts. This year was our second hackathon, which was held at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA. There was a tremendous amount of excitement built up to the day of the hackathon. As it neared, we were constantly reminded to think of ideas, form teams, and chalk up a plan of execution. Our customers love Rubrik’s simplicity. Rubrik’s UI is minimalistic, user-friendly, and intuitive. The question I asked myself was how can I redefine how customers interact with their Rubrik cluster? The answer – a voice based conversational interface that would make our product even more easy to use. Let’s begin by answering our customers’ most important question – “How are my SLAs doing?” So how did I set out to do this? First, I figured out what building blocks to use. Amazon Lex enables one to quickly and easily build sophisticated, natural language, conversational bots. With Amazon Lex, I could define intents and train the bot to identify these intents. A simple example of intent is to know the…
