Top 4 Features to Look for in a GDPR Solution

Changes to Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on May 25, 2018. For those unfamiliar, the law grants European citizens comprehensive rights over personal data that organizations store and process. GDPR places additional burden on the companies, and those that fail to comply face hefty fines. The deadline is fast approaching, yet many companies have not started preparing. While no single solution can ensure compliance, here are four key components to keep in mind as you evaluate solutions: 1. Unified Management Companies often hold personal data on customers, employees, vendors, contractors, and other entities. This data can be spread across a variety of sources like VMs, databases, files, and Exchange Mailboxes. Unfortunately, this fragmented infrastructure makes managing and protecting workloads a major challenge. In addition to being tedious, a patchwork of point solutions can complicate GDPR compliance. Using a single comprehensive solution enables users to define and enforce a data management policy across their entire infrastructure. With Rubrik, one platform supports all common data management scenarios (backup, disaster recovery, archival, etc.) and protects a wide variety of workloads like VMs, physical servers, databases, NAS Shares, and public cloud. This broad and fast-growing support matrix helps organizations enforce their…

NWS Holdings Limited Achieves Unlimited Scale and Immediate Hard Savings with Rubrik

NWS Holdings Limited, headquartered in Hong Kong, is an infrastructure and service flagship of New World Development Company. The company has businesses and investments in Hong Kong and Mainland China with a diverse portfolio that includes toll roads, environmental management, aviation projects, healthcare services, construction, and public transport. Jacky Po and Benjamin Chan, IT Managers at NWS Holdings, discuss how their team leverages Rubrik for cost-efficiency and improved backup performance. What is the IT environment at NWS Holdings? BC: A two-person team supports the entire company’s west office infrastructure and staff. Our environment is 80% virtualized and runs approximately 80 VMs. Our team is primarily focused on achieving reliable data protection and data management agility so that we can scale. What challenges were you experiencing with data protection? BC: We previously relied on fragmented multi-point solutions that lacked scalability. Expanding our environment required substantial planning, as well as additive licensing and hardware costs. Our previous vendor also did not support global deduplication, which led to high storage overhead. In addition, backups were complex and time consuming, and required manual scheduling to accommodate expansion. How has backup and recovery improved with Rubrik? JP: Rubrik delivers hands-free management through an SLA policy…

Recap: Rubrik’s First EMEA Partner Conference

One of the reasons why I joined Rubrik was the channel DNA in our company. At Rubrik, we believe that the channel is a key success factor for scaling and building something epic. Since day one, we’ve been 100% channel driven. With this strategy, we have been able to welcome the “best of the best” partners from around the world to our Rubrik channel family. It was with this mindset that we decided to hold our first EMEA Partner Conference, which took place in the beautiful city of Lisbon. From 20th to 22nd of September, we had an opportunity to meet with our partners and demonstrate our channel commitment. The theme of the conference was Full Throttle, which is exactly what all of our partners are doing every day with us in the field – we go together the extra mile! We invited our TOP 50 partners from all over EMEA to share the experience with peers from across regions, learn how to create even more momentum with Rubrik, hear from our executives first hand, and align with our vision and strategy. One goal of the conference was to ensure that all partners left the conference with a clear answer…

Automatically Provision Self-service Data Management In Your Cloud with Rubrik and SovLabs

Rubrik puts simplicity at the forefront. The easy-to-use GUI is a Rubrik hallmark feature making available quick data protection, instant recovery, and self-service data management. Users can manage their backup services interactively or through the simple, fully-featured automation interface provided by RESTful APIs in order to manage Rubrik’s SLA policy engine. Cloud-scale deployments, however, require automation that spans not only multiple products and services such as name services like DNS and Active Directory, but also multiple product and service categories, including (but by no means limited to) the aforementioned name services, address management, load balancing and, of course, backup services. Fortunately, this is exactly where Rubrik’s API-first architecture really shines, particularly when combined with the power of VMware vRealize Automation (vRA). That said, until recently, making Rubrik’s advanced capabilities available in vRA required administrators to develop, support, and maintain custom integration code. This could delay schedules, increase cost and risk, and reduce agility with every update to deployed technology. Fortunately, SovLabs has recently released a new Backup-as-a-Service Module for vRA that navigates this crucial “last mile” by making the full set of Rubrik data management services directly available from within vRA. With the SovLabs solution, after a simple four-step installation,…
