Introducing Rubrik + VMware Cloud on AWS

At Rubrik, we prioritize customer engagement and focus on tailoring our roadmap to our users’ specific needs. When speaking with our customers, we discovered that many are investigating or using VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC) for a variety of use cases. Most commonly, users leverage VMC as a Disaster Recovery site or a place to run production workloads. But once our customers have workloads running in VMware Cloud on AWS, they need an easy way to protect those workloads against data loss or corruption. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that Rubrik has validated Cloud Cluster to protect VMware Cloud on AWS as a fully-supported solution. The validation is a testament to Rubrik’s commitment to building strong joint solutions and supporting the modern enterprise ecosystem. The integration gives Rubrik users the ability to manage both on-prem and VMC workloads from a single solution. All of Rubrik’s values such as data reduction, archive, and search are included. Making It Work To integrate Rubrik and VMware Cloud on AWS, an Elastic Network Interface (ENI) connection needs to be configured between VMC and AWS. This gives the Rubrik network access to VMware on AWS workload VMs. Fortunately, VMware and AWS have made this…

Hello Canada! Meet Rubrik: Redefining the $48B Data Management Market

Having interviewed numerous tech industry thought leaders for IT World Canada over the years, it’s rare to see a company in the triple threat position of having the right disruptive product, at the right time, with a seasoned executive leadership team redefining a $48 billion market. Rubrik is expanding rapidly in Canada. Founded on the mission “to pioneer a fresh approach to an old problem,” Rubrik has made unprecedented milestones–from being the fastest-growing enterprise company in the billion-dollar league to earning the honour as the fastest time in Gartner history that a company has made it from founding into the Magic Quadrant. To gain deeper insight into the disruptive innovation occurring in the data management market, I connected with Co-Founder & CEO, Bipul Sinha. Brian: What market pain did you and your founding partners see that led you to start Rubrik?  Bipul: “The byproduct of new applications created with emerging tech like IoT, mobile, social, and cloud is data. Data is the new lifeblood of business – there are over 2.5 quintillion bytes of data being created daily. Until Rubrik, there was no simple solution to manage and protect all of this data born of the cloud era. Prior to…

Performing DBCC Health Checks with SQL Server Live Mount

For many organizations, Microsoft SQL Server supports their most critical applications and has become a key component for modernizing their data center. However, managing and protecting SQL workloads is often a cumbersome and inefficient process. That’s why Rubrik pioneered Live Mount capabilities for SQL Server, which enables SQL recoveries and clones in seconds. Rubrik’s SQL Server Live Mount brings many benefits to organizations and is best known for providing fast item-level recovery. But Live Mount is also a powerful tool for accelerating app development, supporting many testing and development scenarios. Under the Hood of SQL Server Live Mount Many Rubrik customers chose to utilize SQL Server Live Mount for testing and development use cases due to its high efficiency. With Live Mount, there is no need to provision storage resources for point-in-time (PIT) database copies, nor is there a need to wait for complete PIT copies to traverse the network. This efficiency is achieved by utilizing Rubrik’s resources as the underlying storage that hosts our database file structure. The PIT backups, along with any transaction logs, are replayed and presented to the SQL Server of choice via an SMB 3.0 share. The RBS then creates a new database on the…

Rubrik Doubles Down on Oracle Database Support, Delivering Instant Recovery and Clones at Scale

How long does it take you to backup a multi-terabyte Oracle database? How long does it take you to restore such a large database or clone it for developers? How do you manage hundreds, if not thousands, of backup scripts as your databases proliferate? How do you empower DBAs and developers to self-serve their data recovery and access needs while maintaining data governance and compliance? These are the questions Oracle DBAs and backup admins struggle with every day, especially as their digital transformation initiatives cause mission-critical database explosion and prolonged backup and recovery times. At Rubrik, we aim to remove these pain points and protect the world’s largest databases. We’re excited to introduce new capabilities built to run your mission-critical databases without compromising performance, security, and flexibility for DBAs, developers, and backup admins. Our support for Oracle databases will address three key data management challenges: inferior recovery times of large-scale databases, management complexity from manual scripting, and operational inefficiencies between database and backup admins.   Rubrik debuts Live Mount for Oracle databases, delivering near-zero RTOs with instant recovery and live migration upon failback. DBAs can also provide instant clones to developers, accelerating application development, testing and ETL (extract, transform, and…
