Deploying a Secure Data Protection as a Service Solution with Rubrik Polaris

Cloud security is one of the topics du jour in the enterprise IT space. In fact, it’s a big enough topic that Amazon Web Services (AWS) hosted their own security conference, AWS re:Inforce, back in June. It highlights the challenge with securing your data in the cloud,  especially if you are using tools and approaches that were not designed for security from the start. Not adhering to good security practices exposes cloud customers to the potential risk of being hacked and having data stolen. To assist customers and partners with building secure solutions, AWS has codified recommended practices and principles into the security pillar of their AWS Well-Architected Framework. The Well-Architected Framework is a tool for evaluating the soundness of any solution running on AWS and leveraging their services. The framework is comprised of five conceptual areas called pillars, including the security pillar.  So where does Rubrik Polaris fit into this picture? We previously announced the general availability of AWS native protection support in Rubrik Polaris, our Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform for cloud data management. Now, we want to explore how Polaris is able to build a secure solution for protecting Amazon EC2 instances and Amazon EBS volumes using the recommended…

Automating VM Protection in Rubrik with vSphere Tags

An oft ignored but useful organization tool, tags are labels that can be applied in your VMware inventory to organize and sort objects. Tags allow you to attach metadata to objects, making it easier to sort and search through your inventory. But wait…there’s more. Tags can also be used in conjunction with other programs like vRealize Automation to help manage an objects lifecycle.  Seen in the picture below is an assigned tag on a VM. To get the most out of vSphere tags, it’s important to also understand the concept of categories.  Categories can be used to group your tags together. Think of it like a large filing cabinet: each drawer is a category, and inside of a drawer, there are folders with objects. These folders have a tag or label on the top. As an example, you may create the category of Operating Systems  that contains tags like Windows 10  or Windows 7  and so on. Here is a very simple diagram of the hierarchy: This is one of the ways tags and categories can be used to help organize your environment. Here’s how you add a category for tags in vSphere: So what could we use categories and…

Announcing Rubrik Mosaic for NoSQL

Today, we’re excited to announce Rubrik Mosaic™ 3.1, formerly Rubrik Datos IO, with enhancements to help organizations protect and manage their Apache Cassandra, DataStax Enterprise, and MongoDB NoSQL databases. This new release includes a host of new features, including support for Microsoft Azure Marketplace availability, the latest database versions and features, new productivity tools integration, and improved performance. Mosaic sets the standard for NoSQL database protection in the cloud, on-premises, and hybrid cloud.  Here’s a quick rundown of what’s new: Support for DataStax Enterprise 6.0 and DSE Search Mosaic now supports DSE 6.0 and 6.7 transparently. With version 6, DataStax implemented a new index format for SSTables that improves performance. Thanks to our partnership with DataStax, Rubrik Mosaic utilizes a new utility purpose-built by DataStax to offer support for DSE 6. If you’re considering an upgrade to DataStax Enterprise, you’ll want Mosaic 3.1. DataStax Enterprise Search is a popular feature, particularly for customers implementing catalogs, document repositories, ad-hoc reporting engines, and other applications that rely heavily on indexing. DataStax uses Apache Solr in the backend to enable search operations on any existing DSE table by creating a Solr index in DSE. With Mosaic 3.1, customers no longer need to rebuild…
