Today, at Day 2 of Pure//Accelerate, we’re excited to announce support of physical Linux on the Rubrik Converged Data Management platform! Over the last few months, our enterprise customers have asked us to extend our next-gen platform to protect physical Linux servers. This broadens the set of virtual and physical data sources supported on Rubrik. Earlier in February, we announced support for physical SQL to be released in 2016. You can check out the physical SQL demo originally shown at Tech Field Day 10 here.

This product announcement allows us to deliver a set of unique benefits to file servers, web servers, database servers, and legacy Linux apps, including:

  • Policy Automation: You can manage physical infrastructure through our dead-simple SLA policy engine. Just specify the retention and frequency required for data protection and whether replication and/or archival should be enabled. You craft the policy and the engine automates execution of data protection for instant on- and off-site recovery.
  • Distributed Savings and Efficiencies: Rubrik is designed as a distributed architecture that linearly scales, with no limitations. Since the system is a single namespace, data services like deduplication and compression scale in-line with cluster size.
  • Instant Data Access: Rubrik gives you near-zero RTOs with the ability to mount the VMs directly on Rubrik and the reduction of hops data needs to take by converging multiple hardware/software siloes.
  • Google-like Search: Our predictive global file search indexes all data managed by Rubrik, whether it’s stored on the Brik or in a public/private cloud resource (AWS, object store, NFS).
