This is Cloud Data Management

This is Cloud Data Management What is Cloud Data Management? Cloud Data Management is a platform that orchestrates mission critical application data across private and public clouds while delivering data management functions such as backup, disaster recovery, archival, compliance, search, analytics, and copy data management in a single, run-anywhere platform. Built for the cloud generation, Rubrik eliminates the complexity of legacy solutions with an automated policy engine that manages data throughout its lifecycle across all data management functions. This vision to deliver a software fabric for data management is rooted in our cloud vendor-agnostic platform, preventing vendor lock-in to any particular cloud. The cloud is a democracy. In the past, we lived in a restrictive system, one where we were anchored to legacy platforms with a disparate view of our businesses. The cloud represents a new era that liberates enterprises by delivering universal access and automation over their applications. With cloud, enterprises can reduce cost and time-to-market while retaining business agility. The cloud adoption is not a question of “if” but rather “how.” Many enterprises are unable to realize the promise of the cloud because of the limitations within their own infrastructure. They have spent millions and millions on their…

Announcing Sponsorship of VMunderground at the 2016 VMworld US

It’s no secret that one of the most valuable things about the VMworld conference is the ability to network with your peers. With so many other folks around who are tackling challenges in the data center, the ability to hear their stories and pick their brain has a high value. Plus, some great friendships can be forged – some of my favorite people are those I met at a previous VMworld! One hallmark of the show is the VMunderground event. It’s a gathering of folks before the chaos begins – a chance to meet and mingle before we are all run ragged with announcements, sessions, keynotes, and other technical delights. I first attended this event when it was held at VMworld 2011 in Las Vegas at the Nine Fine Irishmen. And guess what – it’s back at the same venue! The other snazzy thing about VMunderground? Rubrik is a sponsor! We’re happy to support such a great, community-focused event and have a great amount of appreciation put forth by the team that runs such a high profile and excellently executed event each year. So, make sure to grab a ticket (and if you don’t have one, we’ll have a few…

Security 101: What Security Really Means For Data Management

Data security is not a new priority for enterprises. In earlier blog posts, we discussed the rising threat of ransomware and how a next-gen data management solution prevented a ransomware attack. Given the exponential growth of data and increasing trend in data breaches, it is imperatives that businesses apply the highest security standards to all their data. However, the concept of security is often confounded in the context of data management. To clarify the important terms, components, and their implications for data security within enterprise backup and recovery, I sat down with Adam Goldberg, who leads product development for Rubrik’s security solutions. Adam comes from a security background with previous experience at the Department of Defense.Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) FIPS 140-2 is the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) security standard used to accredit cryptographic modules. It is often a requirement for a product to be installed in a location where sensitive data is stored. The FIPS 140-2 standard extends far beyond the federal government. For example, financial and healthcare institutions collect, store, and transfer highly sensitive information that needs to be secured. While FIPS 140-2 features four levels of security, only Level…

Evaluating Rubrik From an End User’s Perspective

Lee Merrill, a Senior Technical Support Engineer at Rubrik, was formerly a customer of Rubrik. In this blog post, Lee shares his experience and what he learned while evaluating Rubrik from an end user’s perspective. How did you hear about Rubrik when you were a customer? I had an excellent experience as a Rubrik customer. We had some pretty significant pain points with backup and had been mainly looking at storage to ease our pain. Disk space was our major issue with backups, so we had to remove backups to keep things going. This was a constant pain and consumed a lot of time. A vendor of ours had heard about “this product” that we should check out. He thought it would solve our backup issues. Afterwards, we had our hands on our first Brik. Describe your experience when installing Rubrik A memory I have with Rubrik is setting it up with Eric. After we ingested one small 50GB VM, I thought we should put our file servers to the test.  Thus, 4-5TB VMs were next. At first, these had a couple issue with ingestion, but some of it was due to us only having 1GB nics. Support and engineering was…

Pump up the Excitement – VMworld Approaches!

Has it really been a year already? Apparently so, because another gauntlet of VMworld conferences approach and is bristling with energy and excitement. The Rubrik team and I will once again be embarking on an adventure to tour the Las Vegas and Barcelona events, spreading some serious amounts of knowledge, heavy-hitting swag, and a plethora of other surprises. This year, with thanks to our swelling customer base and buzz around making data protection “not suck,” we’ve set the bar to ludicrous speed with a Platinum presence and all the trimmings that goes along with that. I’m stoked! Earlier, I blogged on Wahl Network with an outline of sessions in which I’m excited to present with the likes of Duncan Epping, Kyle Ruddy, Chris Gurley, and Eric Shanks. If you’re interested in learning more about Rubrik CDM, data center automation, PowerShell and PowerCLI scripting, vRealize Automation blueprints, or vRealize Orchestrator workflows – and you’ll be at either of the VMworld events – you’re in for a treat! Stay tuned for even more epic details as we get closer to the VMware event of the year! 🙂
