Intro to Rubrik Datos IO 2.5: Your Primer on Our Newest Product

At Rubrik, we believe Rubrik Datos IO has come along at a perfect time. As more organizations choose NoSQL databases to rapidly build their modern applications, they also struggle with ensuring these applications are protected. Rubrik Datos IO was built to tackle this problem head on. We recognize that many of you are interested in learning more about Rubrik Datos IO for NoSQL and distributed databases, and we recently held a webinar to discuss our product – and our customers – in greater detail. Here’s a quick rundown of what we covered in the webinar, which is available to watch on-demand here. The background: why NoSQL databases need data protection Enterprises are increasingly investing in NoSQL and cloud-native infrastructure. As with most big trends in technology, there are many factors behind this: these platforms take advantage of distributed commodity hardware, are designed with today’s unstructured data in mind, and are easier to configure as highly available. Today, applications built on NoSQL databases like MongoDB and Apache Cassandra / Datastax are at the center of many Fortune 500 companies’ operations. Companies that selected these products to help their application developers build faster 10 years ago now have many critical applications at…

Grove Bank & Trust Is Hurricane-Ready with Rubrik

A South Florida staple since 1926, Grove Bank & Trust is the oldest continuously operating bank in Miami Dade County. Named for the Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami that hosts its headquarters, Grove Bank & Trust delivers checking, savings, lending, financial planning, insurance, and investment services to customers through its five branch offices in Miami, Aventura, and Coral Gables. At Grove Bank & Trust, CIO Sergio Garcia leads a team of three that handles all IT functions and initiatives across the entire bank. What challenges were you experiencing with data protection? Our legacy backup solution was unreliable, difficult to manage, and often resulted in failed backups. These inadequacies placed Grove Bank at risk of being non-compliant with SLAs and industry regulations. We have to hold a lot of our data for multiple years, and we weren’t backing up everything that we needed to in case of a disaster. It’s not just that the old solution was difficult to use, it’s that it made it difficult to provide the regulators with proof that we have backups, can recover, and have completed adequate testing. What were you looking for in your new solution? The bank is growing very rapidly, and we’ve been aggressively…

Harnessing Intelligent Application Instantiation with CloudOn

Almost one year ago, Rubrik’s 4.0 “Alta” release was launched to supply those looking to build amazing IT with a solution teeming with helpful features and ecosystem integration points. For application mobility or disaster recovery, Alta introduced CloudOn as an intelligent application instantiation feature that operates across data centers and clouds. The idea is to take all data earmarked for long-term retention and start actively using it to construct workloads in the public cloud, regardless of the source format. This has an added bonus of using data that has already been efficiently stored in the cloud to construct workloads without further incurring a network transfer hit. In a nutshell – Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management software knows which applications have been archived to Amazon S3 or Azure Blob Storage and can convert any of the backup points into runnable, native instances within those same public cloud environments. My team and I even showed this live at Cloud Field Day 2 back in 2017 – no hiding behind marketecture slides or canned videos for this crew! 🙂 While that’s all fine and dandy, the real value can be found in the use cases. I’ve stood up on my soapbox on this topic…

7 Ways to Conquer Billions of NAS Files

During the ancient times of Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP), each vendor had to send your backup data in a proprietary format that locked you into that specific solution. You would also periodically have to backup the same repetitive data in full over again even if that data did not change. Many backup administrators still struggle with protecting legions of NAS data; some struggle due to limited IT budgets, and others may suffer from the comfort of familiarity. Regardless of the source of conformity, it immobilizes your critical data and prevents it from achieving the fluidity of cloud data management. Well, times have changed, and as you know, we are living in a digital world. A world where protecting petabytes of data and billions of files are commonplace, and backup administrators need to arm themselves with a simple approach to protecting NAS data. Here are seven ways to rise above the challenge of backing up billions of NAS files and how Rubrik Alta 4.1 NAS filesets are the perfect weapon for your conquest. Educate yourself on scale-out platforms. In the book The Art of War, Sun Tzu wisely pens that “the greatest victory is that which requires no battle.” In one word, this…

Encrypting Your Data in the Cloud: Rubrik CloudOut with Amazon S3

In a previous post, I discussed the role of data encryption as a critical component of any company’s security posture and the potential pitfalls of not using encryption properly. This is magnified when you are talking about storing data outside of customer data centers in public cloud storage repositories such as Amazon S3, Azure Blob Storage, and Google Cloud Storage. Security is one of the key pillars of Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management platform, and we design security into every aspect of the platform. This includes end-to-end encryption, both in transit and at rest, which extends to our integration with public cloud providers. The majority of Rubrik customers take advantage of our CloudOut capability to store their backup data in one of the big three public cloud providers, often as a replacement for tape. This approach is typically more cost effective, more reliable, and offers better response times in the event that data restoration is required. To secure data uploaded via CloudOut, Rubrik enables encryption in transit using TLS and encryption at rest using various methodologies. No matter the cloud provider, Rubrik applies the same three key principles to how we encrypt customer data: Use the strongest encryption cipher available and…
