Intelligent Data Protection: Revisiting Cerebro

Making any sufficiently complex system look and feel simple is a tall order. But that’s precisely what Cerebro does for Rubrik Cloud Data Management! As the “brains” of the stack, Cerebro acts as the autonomous conductor standing on a podium before thousands of critical systems, all eager to be protected or restored as part of the data lifecycle management symphony. Founding Engineer Fabiano Botelho introduced Cerebro in a blog post over two years ago. The time is nigh to dig deeper. The power of Cerebro allows workload data to be freed from the storage tier by unlocking mobility beyond the data center — into the cloud and between different clouds. Cerebro is the system’s brains, accommodating many critical functions of the Rubrik CDM stack. Two of those functions are the Distributed Task Framework and Blob Engine, which together unite as powerful components to ensure Rubrik delivers data that is immediately accessible and recoverable. Distributed Task Framework The Distributed Task Framework is the engine responsible for globally assigning and executing tasks across a cluster in a fault tolerant and efficient manner. It has the intelligence to provide resource utilization and load balancing of all data in a declarative manner. Rubrik’s Distributed Task…

Design Centers and You

A Bit of History I still find technology fascinating – don’t you? There’s a certain joy in tinkering, building, and ultimately creating that never gets old. This goes back to my earliest days when I used ResEdit to change the Welcome to Macintosh screen to say Be very, very afraid, but it remained true after graduating from college and diving headfirst into learning Novell Netware and eDirectory. For those of us with a CNA, it never actually expires and doesn’t technically have to be removed from your resume. I’ll let you decide if it stays or not though. Over time, part of my responsibilities both as a data center architect at a customer and then later as a presales technical director at a solutions integrator involved input on new product evaluations. I had to determine how the various products would or wouldn’t fit into my data center or our solutions portfolio. There are many facets to these kind of evaluations, so it can be daunting to keep track of the mountains of minutia – everything from technical to operational to financial and more. What’s a Design Center? In time, one idea that I came to focus on was a concept…

Embracing Digital Transformation with Rubrik and Azure

The 2017 Microsoft Ignite conference was an event where several items were crossed off my bucket list. Not only did I get to spend an hour recording an episode of the Datanauts Podcast with the infamous Jeffrey Snover, creator of PowerShell and all-around nice guy, but I also held the privilege of showcasing Rubrik’s official integration across both Azure and Azure Stack in the expo hall. The idea that cloud-born services, such as elastic compute pools and Function-as-a-Service (FaaS) features, can be pushed towards on-prem deployments is fairly magical, and that’s the idea behind Azure Stack. But I’m getting a bit ahead of myself. The real question to answer starts with “why push cloud services to co-exist on premises?” And in this case, I’ll point to the presentation given by Mr. Snover on data center transformation. In it, he shares his thoughts on how the very fabric of being an IT professional is changing. Rather than being tactically focused on resources that create and deploy infrastructure, we’re gaining momentum as strategically-positioned forces that can go beyond staying relevant and actually get ahead of the mounting pile of technical debt that has quagmired progress in the past. Part of this change…

CarePoint Health Simplifies Operations with Rubrik and Microsoft Azure

Headquartered in Jersey City, New Jersey, CarePoint Health is a leader in the delivery of preventive medicine, healthcare education, and disease management. Each year, CarePoint Health delivers hundreds of thousands of healthcare services to residents in Hudson County through its three area hospitals. Lev Goronshteyn, CTO at CarePoint Health, discusses how Rubrik and Microsoft Azure simplified CarePoint’s data management operations and helped them eliminate tape. What challenges were you experiencing with data protection? When we combined the three hospital IT environments, it created a lot of complexity and performance challenges for us. Our old system was inherently difficult to use, our backups were taking 12 hours or longer to complete, and our restores could take hours. We were spending a lot of time on backups, and we wanted to free our employees up to work on other initiatives. We also were sitting on a vast amount of tape, which was challenging to manage and needed to be eliminated. Why did you choose Rubrik and Microsoft Azure? We knew that by transitioning to a hybrid cloud we could unlock cost savings and efficiency gains that weren’t possible with our legacy systems. To get the results we wanted, we knew that we needed…
