At Rubrik, we build to make our customers’ work easier across their entire infrastructure, especially as they move to hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Customer feedback drives our product roadmap, and we heavily invest in our partners to deliver critical solutions that solve the biggest enterprise data management challenges. 

We’re always looking for new ways to innovate and expand our partner ecosystem and are thrilled to introduce three upcoming solutions! Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come:

Protecting Azure NetApp Files with Rubrik

Unstructured data brings about new data management challenges. In many large enterprises, the size of unstructured data is in double or even triple-digit petabytes and continues to grow exponentially. The sheer volume of data and number of files, which can run into the billions, makes it difficult for backup software to identify which files to protect, as the entire file system needs to be examined for changes since the last backup. This can result in horribly slow backups, failed backup jobs, and unfavorable resource consumption.

To solve these challenges, we recently introduced Rubrik and NetApp StorageGRID, which enables users to automate data lifecycle management at cloud scale. We also introduced our first-to-market integration with SnapDiff APIs (expected to be GA in early 2020), bringing dramatic performance gains and autonomous, policy-driven data management to hybrid cloud environments.

We’re excited to build on this partnership with new native support for Azure NetApp Files (ANF), extending the same simplicity and automation to our joint customers for hybrid cloud data protection. In addition, Rubrik also integrates with Azure Blob Storage for long-term archival.



Rubrik Protection for Azure VMs

You’re probably familiar with how Rubrik automates backup of EC2 instances and enables 1-click recovery to restore a single file or your entire environment in less than 60 seconds. In a similar vein, over the last year, we’ve been working very closely with the Microsoft team to enable cloud-native protection of Azure VMs for near-zero RTOs. With the Rubrik Polaris SaaS platform, you can configure your entire Azure environment and protect VMs in just a few clicks. Infinitely scalable, Rubrik Polaris can extend to cover the entire Azure environment–irrespective of the number of subscriptions, regions, or VMs.




Microsoft Azure VMware Protection Through CloudSimple

Azure VMware Solution by CloudSimple enables customers to seamlessly migrate, extend, and run existing VMware workloads from on-prem environments to Azure for cost and operational efficiency. With our upcoming collaboration, users will be able to seamlessly automate backup and recovery of VMs on Azure VMware Solution by CloudSimple via our enterprise-grade UI. Learn more about Rubrik and Microsoft’s joint solutions here.

Our partner-first approach empowers us to develop cutting-edge solutions that can tackle enterprises challenges while driving business outcomes. We’ll be releasing more details on each of these integrations in future blog posts. Follow us on Twitter (@rubrikInc) or meet us at upcoming events to stay up to date.
