0-60 in 1.9 Seconds: Rubrik Goes “Plaid” with Microsoft Azure

Today, just months after the Rubrik Alta 4.1 release, we’re excited to announce that Rubrik has been designated an ISV co-seller through the Microsoft Partner Network to offer our hybrid cloud management solution on Microsoft Azure. Expanding our partnership with Microsoft enables enterprise, government, and nonprofit customers to transform their organizations and fully leverage a hybrid cloud model. Rubrik’s unprecedented growth and the breadth of its development mirrors some of the most innovative companies to date. As I was finalizing the content of this joint announcement, my son texted me: Tesla released a roadster, and it’s exactly everything you could ever want from a car. Welcome to “Plaid Mode.” To me, our extended partnership with Microsoft is Rubrik’s Plaid Mode. In a mere few months, Rubrik has gone from being a small partner to being a top MS ISV. We began our Azure journey earlier this year. The initial step was to target new features for Azure  to bring us into a leadership position among cloud providers. Our engineers delivered at lightspeed with the release of Rubrik Alta 4.1. The release expanded our CloudOn services to Microsoft Azure, pioneering server-less conversion of VMs to cloud instances. This lowers the costs…

Rapid Restore: Rubrik + Pure Storage

What do you get when you combine a scale-out Rubrik Cloud Data Management (CDM) platform with a scale-out Pure Storage FlashBlade? The result is web-scale uploads, rapid restores, and instant access to granular data across a far wider timeframe and in a substantially smaller form-factor than legacy solutions. This is a joint solution that will provide your data center with 50x faster restores at blazing throughput because every minute counts during recovery. You can no longer afford to wait to modernize your legacy Backup and Recovery environment, as time is of the essence. Today, there are many priorities that are top of mind for CIOs; the proliferation of data, rising malicious threats, and the digital transformation in which technology converges into our everyday lives. Rubrik and Pure Storage have aligned with those priorities by offering an architecturally-matched solution for copy data since Rubrik integrates with Pure Storage FlashBlade as a scale-out archival tier via NFS (with S3 coming soon). Rubrik CDM will ingest your data with parallel streams across multiple nodes, taking advantage of its scale-out architecture and performance. This capability delivers superior Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) for simple, automated workflows. The intelligent policy engine is built to make use…

Getting Strategic with Copy Data Management

Copy data management (CDM) is a term that we hear a lot in the industry. Yet, many of us don’t have a clear idea of what it really means. In this blog, I’ll walk you through what copy data management is and what makes Rubrik a strategic tool for it. The amount of data collected and processed by businesses has grown exponentially. Adding to this increase, a recent study performed by IDC cites the average number of copies per piece of data is 13. As you can imagine, this growth of data and copy data uses up storage space and can hinder performance. In fact, IDC estimated that 60% of storage is provisioned to store copy data – even with deduplication. This tells us that IT organizations need a reliable and scalable approach to managing copy data. An effective copy data management solution creates space efficiency and easily unlocks copy data use cases — such as test/dev, backup and recovery, and replication — across your entire infrastructure. So, let’s get a little closer to home. At a recent user group event, I had the opportunity to speak to a room of IT professionals and ask them a few questions: How…

Want Google Cloud for Data Retention? Rubrik Has You Covered!

Rubrik has long provided customers the option to archive backup data to public cloud storage offerings such as Amazon Web Services S3 and Microsoft Azure Blob Storage. Archiving data to public cloud storage has become an attractive alternative to tape media for customers who require off-site retention of backup data. Many users recognize that public cloud storage solutions provide better durability, scalability, resiliency, availability, and convenience than tape media — and at a lower price point. Continuing our commitment to provide customers with choice of public cloud options, Rubrik has added support for archiving to Google Cloud Storage in our new Alta 4.1 release. To better understand Rubrik’s integration, let’s first go over object storage technology and the basics of Google Cloud Storage. Object Storage Overview Google Cloud Storage is an object storage solution that is offered as part of the Google Cloud Platform. At its core, object storage offers users a non-hierarchical namespace in which they can store different types of data using simple HTTP calls. Typical use cases for object storage include: Hosting web pages, videos, and music files A repository for user home directories Backend storage for file-sharing applications such as Dropbox Archiving target for backup data…

For CIOs, Focus on the Service Experience is Paramount

Four years ago, I sat down with Frank Slootman, now Former CEO of ServiceNow and Data Domain, and shared my idea of re-architecting backup and recovery from the ground up to manage the data explosion in a cloudy world. Backup and recovery was overdue for a technology refresh. There was opportunity to bring the power of public clouds to backup, expand the role of backup data into a business asset for test/dev and analytics, and replace the traditional cumbersome architecture and user experience with one that was radically simple and infinitely scalable. Fast forward to ten product releases and 600+ employees, Frank and I caught up on why he invested in Rubrik and how our vision resonated with him. During the discussion, we traded notes on where IT is headed and what’s top of mind for CIOs. Four out of the five business days, I’m usually found on the road, meeting with customers around the world across all industries. After countless trips, I have noticed a clear trend in my discussions with CIOs – the CIO of today is starkly different from the CIO of yesterday. They are business strategists and spend their time figuring how best to leverage technology…
