The Vision Is Bright: Rubrik Named a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant

We are honored to announce that Gartner has named Rubrik a “Visionary” in its 2017 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions. We are entering after only three years of operations in a category that hasn’t welcomed a new vendor since 2014, an unprecedented trajectory. This is a testament to our focus on innovation and customer success. Rubrik is disrupting a previously underserved industry composed of complex and brittle solutions. Rubrik Cloud Data Management was architected to dramatically simplify data management and enable new data services anytime, anywhere, regardless of infrastructure. With a $150 million bookings run rate after only eight quarters of selling, it is clear that the market demand is on our direction. We believe our modern approach has changed the way enterprise customers think about backup and recovery, and the potential of application data when it can be delivered reliably anytime, anywhere. Our solution supports all major enterprise production environments – virtual, physical, or cloud. Rubrik Alta, our ninth and most significant product release, rounds out this support with Hyper-V, Nutanix AHV, native Oracle, and SQL. The release also introduced Live Mount for SQL, a capability that has never been offered by any other solution.…

The Startup Funding Journey

Eric Shanks recently wrote a fascinating article analyzing startup funding using Rubrik as an example. If you haven’t already, go read it now – I’ll wait here until you come back. I’ve always loved figuring out how things work, whether it’s exploring SimCity, learning Netware out of college, understanding channel reseller business models, and now IT startups. However, as Eric Shanks explored, fascination with technology often expands into understanding all the factors surrounding its creation. As we all know, the best technology doesn’t always win. Let’s have a moment of silence for OS/2, Betamax, Novell Netware + eDirectory, and many more. For startups, one major factor is funding, which I’d like to share a few thoughts on. Please note this is my own personal perspective built over the last 15+ years. All About the People Before Round A, it’s more about the people than the product. There’s typically not much of a product at this point, so the main thing to gauge is the team. Looking at Rubrik, all four co-founders, as well as the founding engineers, could literally work almost anywhere they wanted in Silicon Valley. In the past, they’d held positions at Oracle, Facebook, VMware, Google, and more. And…

Top 3 Use Cases for Rubrik with Zerto

In my first post, I’d like to share some of the cool use cases for using Rubrik with Zerto. For the uninitiated, Zerto provides hypervisor-based replication and recovery automation across hypervisors and clouds. The solution delivers RPOs of seconds and RTOs of minutes. Zerto is the logical evolution of storage-based replication/CDP with separate orchestration solutions. Similarly, Rubrik is the logical evolution of data protection and management software that frees your data from underlying infrastructure. If your primary use case is replacing SAN replication and SRM, then Zerto can help simplify and future proof your environment. Likewise, if your primary use case is replacing legacy backup hardware and software, then Rubrik is a no brainer to simplify and future proof. Now that we have established that these are complimentary solutions, here are my top 3 use cases for using them together: 1. Simplify End-to-end Data Protection The first thing users love about both Rubrik and Zerto is that they simplify the complex, enterprise-class backup and replication technologies. In a nutshell, this means that mere mortals with no professional services can achieve the highest levels of data protection assurance with ease. Rubrik delivers the best converged backup solution on the market. It can start ingesting your data to…

Rubrik & Oracle: Not Just a Dumb Target

Oracle databases are a critical part of many IT environments. With the Rubrik Alta release, we are excited to announce support for Oracle. Our goal is to provide core Rubrik benefits such as immutability and a single policy engine for retention + archival + replication, while tightly integrating with native Oracle capabilities. Our approach is to integrate with RMAN to offer agentless support and allow Oracle DBAs to continue using familiar tools. The integration provides support for ASM – a notable difference from array-based snapshot methods. Rubrik supports all database topologies (RAC, Exadata, etc.) and recovery types. While an easy and technically feasible approach would have been providing an NFS export and stopping there, Rubrik is intentionally not a “dumb target” for database backups. Our engineers rejected that approach as not staying true to the core Rubrik platform benefits. However, we are using NFS as a transport mechanism for ingesting RMAN backups into Oracle. From there, Oracle backups are preserved in an immutable format and managed via the same Rubrik policy that applies to all other datasets. Under the Hood The core new feature that supports Oracle backups is the concept of a Managed Volume – an NFS mount point exposed to…
