Zero Setup, Instant Access, and Lower TCO With Rubrik, your data is always “on” even when it’s tucked away in an archive tier, such as public cloud storage, on-site object stores, and NFS. We’re excited to team up with Cloudian, provider of Amazon S3-compatible on-site object storage. Cloudian offers HyperStore, software that transforms commodity servers into scalable and fault tolerant object stores. Together, Rubrik and Cloudian simplify how enterprises manage backup and long-term data retention in hybrid cloud environments.

There’s no additional software installations or plugins necessary to connect Rubrik with Cloudian. Just set your target archival location to Cloudian.

TotalJobs Group Ltd. Embraces Backup Simplicity with Rubrik

What happens when one of UK’s leading job boards decides to modernize its outdated backup solution? It teams up with Rubrik. Totaljobs Group Ltd is the UK’s largest and fastest-growing online recruitment company, comprising 190,000 jobs across six job boards. Each month, 7 million jobseekers generate 3.3 million applications on Totaljobs. After struggling with various backup solutions implemented across multiple groups within the company, Totaljobs kicked off a search for a modern backup solution that could simplify daily management and easily scale with a fast-growing business. Holger Sell, Corporate IT Services Manager at TJG outlines their decision process for selecting Rubrik. Struggling Under the Legacy Approach “We had outgrown our current backup solution and wanted to move to a solution that was more modern, able to scale with us, and take up less of our time to manage. We used to deal with failed backups and very poor customer service when we needed to recover any data. In addition, having tape as an archive method meant recovery was extra slow and painful.”“We have virtualised 100% of our infrastructure and our previous solution showed its age. I looked at several known products including those known as market leaders for VM backups,…

Rubrik - Blog - Why Your Hospital May be Held Hostage Without Healthy Data Protection


Why Your Hospital May be Held Hostage Without Healthy Data Protection

There’s a crisis in healthcare. The crisis we are referring to is not the economic system, but rather cyber threats targeted at hospitals’ data. In February, a cyberattack in Los Angeles left the Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center paralyzed without access to electronic records while its hackers held its computer systems captive for a reputedly multi-million dollar ransom. The result – a 40 bitcoin (approximately $17,000) payment and a loss of operations for over a week. This cyberthreat, known as ransomware, is growing and is predicted to increase in 2016. In one week alone, three hospitals were hit by ransomware attacks. How do hospitals protect themselves from ransomware threats? To answer this question, we sat down with David Ramos, who leads the development of Rubrik’s security measures. Ramos has a Ph.D. from Stanford in Computer Science and discovered dozens of security bugs in open source software, including three in OpenSSL for which security advisories were issued. Ramos explains why hospitals are especially vulnerable to these types of attacks, and why data protection and security need to be integrated at the highest standard in a reliable backup solution. Q. What is Ransomware? How is Ransomware different from other cyber threats? A. Ransomware…

A How-To Guide on Rubrik’s vRealize Automation Integration

As the modern data center becomes increasingly more software-defined, it is critical to select technology platforms that will support this new architecture even if you aren’t providing IT-as-a-Service today. The best way to prepare for the future is choosing to implement modern API driven solutions into your environment that automate consumer-oriented services. Rubrik’s API-First Architecture Lets You “Backup-As-A-Service” The Rubrik platform was purpose-built to address this need. Rubrik is an API-driven solution. In fact, the Rubrik UI is simply a consumer of the underlying REST APIs exposed by every Rubrik system. What does this mean? It means that everything in Rubrik is easily automated by REST APIs. Since just about every automation platform supports RESTful APIs, you are free to use whatever software you like or even write your own homegrown solution for Rubrik. Now you can add Backup-as-a-Service into your ITaaS portfolio! An Example Let’s say you have an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution in place (vRealize Automation or vRA for example) where users can self-provision systems. You’re still likely using a manual or semi-manual process by which people request data protection for those self-provisioned systems. In a typical workflow, this would be a form the user would submit, and that form…
