Rubrik Delivers Certified Protection for SAP HANA

Enterprises are undergoing a dizzying pace of digital transformation. For many organizations, real-time analytics and insights are critical to their transformation success, and SAP HANA is their database of choice. SAP HANA is an in-memory database platform that offers a range of analytics processing capabilities to support enterprise-grade workloads, including SAP’s own 4th Gen product–S4/HANA. In our conversations with customers, it became clear that there is a fast-growing need for simple, scalable SAP HANA protection. To address our customers’ pain points, I’m pleased to share that Rubrik Andes 5.0, our fourteenth and biggest release to date, introduces SAP-certified protection for SAP HANA databases. Under the hood, Rubrik integrates with the Backint interface of SAP HANA to ensure complete protection of customer data. Rubrik brings flexibility and its trademark policy automation for even the largest SAP HANA databases. Here are the some of the key highlights of our integration: Native Integrations: Admins use SAP tools for most of their day-to-day activities, and data protection is an integral part of SAP HANA administration. Considering this, Rubrik has tightly integrated with SAP’s native tools like SAP HANA Cockpit and Studio so that DBAs and backup admins can continue using their existing tools and…

AWS EC2 Protection with Rubrik

For most IT professionals, data protection is a difficult and thankless task. Adding to the pain, data protection tools can be even more complex and brittle than manual processes. Take, for example, the protection of virtual machines/instances in the public cloud. The primitives help protect your data, but automating the process often requires cobbling together various scripts and services that have to be constantly maintained. Solving these pain points was a major part of the recent Rubrik Alta 4.2 release. Based on customer demand, we’ve made simplifying the protection of cloud workloads a key benefit of our platform, beginning with Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2 instances. In a previous post, I provided an overview of the various AWS primitives, such as EBS snapshots and Amazon Machine Images, that are involved with EC2 instance protection. This post will go under the hood of how Rubrik uses these primitives to automate and simplify protection. What Challenges Are We Solving For? We designed Alta 4.2 to address the top data management challenges we heard from customers and prospects who are running workloads in AWS. This includes those who are new to the public cloud and those who run primarily in the cloud. Here…

Your Primer on AWS EC2 Protection

Are you on the cloud-native train? Nowadays, it seems everyone is building new stateless cloud-native applications or refactoring their old “jalopies” to become container-based, microservice-architected, cloud-native “Teslas.” However, that isn’t the reality when you speak with most users. Many are still hesitant to run production workloads in the cloud because they are not sure if their data will be protected and managed. Even current cloud users have concerns about the challenges of protecting their stateful data. Earlier this month, we announced Rubrik Alta 4.2, which extended our enterprise hybrid cloud data management capabilities. Based on customer demand, we’ve made simplifying the protection of cloud workloads a key component of our platform, beginning with Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2 instance protection. Protecting EC2 instances centers on efficiently managing EBS snapshots and Amazon Machine Images. We’ll dive into how Rubrik simplifies AWS EC2 protection in a follow-up blog post. But first, we need to level-set our understanding of related AWS technologies and the possibilities and challenges they present.  Let’s begin with the different storage types that an EC2 instance uses. What is an EC2 Instance Store? An instance store is temporary or ephemeral block storage for EC2 instances. It’s a logical volume…
