Helping Customers with Their Cloud Journey

There was a time not so long ago when adopting the public cloud was considered too big of a risk for the enterprise. Today, enterprises are seeing public cloud vendors as strategic partners and exploring new ways to leverage the innovation, agility, and scale of providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud. Tim Carr explains how enterprises are embracing the public cloud in a phased approach in this Gestalt IT blog post.  Source: Can a Backup Appliance Really Help your Enterprise Cloud Strategy? – Part 2 These cloud journey phases often look like this: Phase 1: Leverage basic public cloud services that require minimal changes to current workloads or processes. Phase 2: Build out an infrastructure using public cloud resources for new workloads or migrating existing on-premises workloads. Phase 3: Refactor applications to take advantage of public cloud scale and innovations, including more advanced public cloud services. Rubrik was born in the cloud era providing a web-scale platform from day one.

The questions for many DBAs have become, “How can I build a skill set that extends beyond on-premises, across multiple clouds, and beyond?  How can I add value to the data I manage and protect?” Opportunities for the New World Being a modern DBA requires a complete overhaul of traditional operations. This blog post will explore the opportunities you have as a DBA to automate key Day 2 operations, freeing up time to focus on more strategic work that will allow you to transition from a database mechanic into a data steward in the new world.

How Rubrik Andes 5.2 Empowers DBAs With Flexible Recovery Options

Databases are at the heart of the data management strategy for all enterprises. This is because critical applications are built and hosted on databases—both relational and non-relational—so any downtime on databases has a direct impact on the company’s revenue. At Rubrik, we are committed to delivering value to our customers by simplifying their data management strategies across all environments. That’s why Rubrik Andes 5.2, our latest product release, delivers multiple enhancements and capabilities for Oracle databases that provide even more power and flexibility to DBAs. Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management (CDM) platform delivers enterprise-grade protection and DevOps-centric automation for Oracle databases, enabling customers to automatically backup their Oracle database workloads and leverage flexible recovery options in the event of database failure. This allows DBAs to devote their precious time to other demanding tasks without worrying about database backups or relinquishing restore control.  Rubrik’s data management solution for Oracle is built around recovery scenarios that DBAs perform on a day-to-day basis.  Clone Cloning is the most obvious use case for DBAs in terms of using the existing database backups. DBAs frequently clone critical production data and create clones that are used for testing and developing new applications. The Clone option (originally known…
