Disaster Recovery in the Cloud with Rubrik, Part 2: The Architectures

My previous blog post focused on leveraging the public cloud as a DR site for a primary on-premises environment. For this use case, there are several cloud DR options based on a user’s Recovery Time Objective (RTO), Recovery Point Objective (RPO), and financial requirements: Backup and Restore, Pilot Light, Warm Standby, and Hot Site. In this post, I will show how Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management Platform can be used to build out a DR site in the cloud, regardless of the option they choose. Using Rubrik for Disaster Recovery in the Cloud There are a number of approaches that users can take to move data to the cloud, from home-grown scripts to cloud vendor-specific tools to robust data management platforms. In his Gestalt IT blog post, Tim Carr cited Rubrik as a tool that facilitates data archiving to the cloud and provides orchestration capability to help automate the Backup and Recovery option. Rubrik also provides tools to help users build out and extend all four of the DR options. Specifically, there are three important capabilities in our Cloud Data Management platform that support this use case: CloudOut: Archive backup data to object storage platforms such as Amazon S3 or Azure Blob…

Disaster Recovery in the Cloud, Part 1: Knowing the Options

I’ve had the opportunity to speak with many users about their plans for public cloud vendors and disaster recovery (DR). Specifically, users ask me about how they can use AWS or Azure as the DR target for their on-premises environment. This is also a topic that Tim Carr addresses in his recent Gestalt IT blog post. In the first of two blog posts, we will examine the different DR options in public cloud. Why Use Public Cloud for DR? The traditional approach to DR requires significant investment of time and resources. At minimum, users must consider how they would replicate their primary infrastructure to a secondary site. That secondary site needs to be procured, installed, and maintained. During normal operations, the secondary site will typically be under-utilized or over-provisioned. The cost of such an investment is beyond the means of many companies. Even for companies with the means, DR is seen as a sunk cost that delivers little return quarter over quarter. However, not having an adequate DR strategy is also something no company can afford. The public cloud offers a way for companies of all sizes to build DR sites with little upfront costs through a pay-as-you-go model. Options…

Instant Recovery with SQL Live Mount

Rubrik Alta, our ninth and largest product release, expands our focus on creating the complete enterprise data management solution. With this goal comes the need to offer instant data access and recovery wherever that data resides. That’s why we at Rubrik are excited to introduce SQL Server Live Mount, a groundbreaking capability that no other solution has ever offered. SQL Server Support Overview Before diving into our Live Mount technology, it’s important to understand how Rubrik supports SQL Server. Just like many other facets of Rubrik, our SQL support is designed around simplicity and efficiency. To protect databases with Rubrik, the user merely installs the Rubrik connector onto the SQL Server host. The connector is lightweight, requires no restarts upon installation, and will automatically upgrade itself in the future as needed. Once installed, the connector auto-discovers all SQL Server instances and databases on the host. From then on, databases can be assigned SLA Domains, have manual snapshots taken, and be easily recovered. Because our connector is highly integrated within the host, we can use an initial full backup along with intelligent block mapping inside the connector to provide incremental forever backups. This method utilizes the network as efficiently as possible…
