Exploring Cloud Data Management at Tech Field Day 12

It’s not often that I get to present to a room full of amazingly talented colleagues gathered from all around the world. But when I do, it’s typically during one of Gestalt IT’s Field Day presentations. Recently, the Rubrik team sat down in front of a delegation from Tech Field Day 12 to get nerdy and deep dive into various components within the Rubrik Cloud Data Management stack. The goal was to dissect the simplicity that is baked into our enterprise-grade software offering and showcase how it works. If you missed the event, no worries! I’m going to walk you through the topics we covered and share all of the video recordings. As a special bonus, you can view Rubrik’s past appearances at Tech Field Day 10 and Virtualization Field Day 5. I also made sure to include a special slide for our friend Eric Wright over at Turbonomic because of his Tweet: Dear every single tech marketing team: please stop using the phrase "game-changing". Seriously, just stop. — Eric Wright (@discoposse) November 15, 2016 Rubrik Introduction The first segment provided a level set for those who are new to Rubrik, but also discussed what’s new with the latest and…

Star Wars & Swag – Does It Get Any Better?

We’re definitely believers in the phrase “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” If you look at that from an IT industry perspective, it’s hard to imagine a larger cultural Force when it comes to “acceptable toys for adults” than Star Wars. (Don’t worry, Star Trek fans – we know you’re out there too!) As you can tell from our latest Backup Wars campaign, we’re putting our money where our mouth is: Just for signing up, you’ll get a bunch of free stuff – details at the link below. Join the Rubrik Alliance, get your Backup Wars kit. And make sure to check out the fun new Backup Wars video. But wait, it gets better. Have you ever imagined the magic of truly using the Force? Moving your hands and controlling things through the sheer power of your mind? Finding the Dark Side and embracing it for all its beauty and…mwu-ha-ha-ha…. Sorry, I got a bit carried away there. But there was a point. If you tweet a Star Wars inspired photo or video and tag @RubrikInc + #backupwars, you’ll be entered to win a Sphero BB-8. Control a droid with the motion of your hands…well, your hands while…

Score Snazzy Swag at the vBrownBag End of Year Give Away Extravaganza

One of the spectacular attributes of the virtualization community is the stellar folks who put forth time and energy to help others. A shining example of this is the vBrownBag folks. From hosting technical webinars with industry rockstars to recording presentations at major industry events, the people at vBrownBag provide an excellent resource for technical professionals looking to learn from one another. I remember when I first started tuning into the VMware Certified Professional (VCP) series many years ago and was amazed at how deep the presenter knowledge went. Each year during the holidays, vBrownBag asks vendors throughout the ecosystem to pitch in a few presents for community members to win by signing up for a giveaway contest. Last year, we at Rubrik posted details on how to win one of five copies of the Networking for VMware Administrators book (profits going to Alzheimer’s Association) along with Millennium Falcon LEGO sets. I think it was a fun set of swag for adults and kids to enjoy – or an adult who is a kid at heart. This year, we’re once again contributing to the vBrownBag End of Year Give Away Extravaganza with some snazzy new items! You have until Tuesday, 20th…

Tim Gable, Network Systems Manager, and Shane Hadden, Senior Network Engineer, at Fujirebio Diagnostics, Inc. discuss how they transitioned to an innovative data management solution to complement their shift to virtualization and public cloud. Tell me about Fujirebio Diagnostics, Inc. and your role at the company Fujirebio Diagnostics, Inc. is the world leader in the production of in vitro diagnostics and biomarkers.

Shane and I support the infrastructure that compromises our data center at our Pennsylvania location. The IT department as a whole is 14 team members, but the infrastructure team consists of only 2 – Shane and I.
