Our Response to Commvault’s Pending Lawsuit

As you may have heard, Commvault filed lawsuits alleging patent infringement against Rubrik and Cohesity. Since our inception, Rubrik has been recognized as a market-leading visionary that upended a large, stagnant backup and recovery market once ruled by legacy vendors. As market adoption of new technologies gains momentum, legacy vendors often resort to lawsuits to suppress the originators of innovation. We believe there is no merit to this complaint, and we will always vigorously defend our innovation, patents, and technology. Most importantly, we remain focused on continuing to develop cutting-edge solutions for our customers highlighting our technology differentiation: Simple, policy-driven data management to deliver significant cost savings and operational efficiencies Modern, cloud-native architecture to accelerate cloud adoption Unique immutable backups to provide cyber-resiliency against ransomware API first platform to drive automation and self-service for all your data operations Our business has been experiencing record growth with our award-winning platform, fueled by strong enterprise and government demand. We’ve been recognized as a Forbes Cloud 100 Company, a LinkedIn Top 25 Company, 8X best of VMWorld winner, and Forrester Wave Leader.

Opas AI Team Joining Rubrik to Accelerate Innovations in AI

We are excited to announce that Rubrik has acquired Opas AI, a company that specializes in artificial intelligence for root cause analysis in IT. At Rubrik, we’re focused on building solutions that reduce the friction and time required to run and manage modern IT environments. The Opas AI team will help us accelerate these efforts and enable our customers to more quickly and efficiently respond to problems in their IT operations. Rubrik already employs AI in a variety of ways to deliver cutting-edge capabilities that tackle the biggest data management pain points. For example, Polaris Radar, our Ransomware detection and remediation solution, uses AI to sift through large volumes of metadata to detect and pinpoint security vulnerabilities and ransomware attacks.  Opas AI has developed an AI-based Causation Engine that employs an ensemble of statistical and ML models – deep neural nets, random forests, support vector machines – to “understand” and model the behavioral parameters of applications and their underlying infrastructure. This enables the Causation Engine to quickly diagnose a potential or existing fault.  With Opas AI’s technology, we see a near-term opportunity to enhance our product offerings to provide our customers more proactive alerting and shorter problem resolution cycles when…

Our Perspective on Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant

This week after a two-year hiatus, Gartner published its 2019 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions with a new lead analyst and supporting team. As many know, Gartner’s research can sway market perceptions–presumably based on the firm’s reputation for diligent research and, as Gartner notes, the firm’s “independence, objectivity and accuracy.”  While we continue to seek good relations with Gartner, to put it bluntly, it’s our opinion that the 2019 Backup and Recovery Solutions MQ is seriously flawed. We have engaged with the Gartner team over several months to remedy a number of significant issues and concerns to no avail, so we felt it was important that the market, including our customers, potential customers, partners and employees, have the full set of facts that are pertinent in objectively evaluating the information contained in this MQ.  Based on objective data, since the 2017 MQ, Rubrik has made significant progress in its business, out-paced all of its competitors, and has had a disproportionately large impact on the Data Center Backup and Recovery market. Yet, this progress has not manifested in any significant movement, as reflected in Rubrik’s position within the 2019 MQ. Note: The data cited below is as…

Company

We’re Not for Sale.

I’d like to address a press article suggesting Rubrik is for sale. This story is completely false. I want to make it unequivocally clear that Rubrik is not for sale. We are committed to building a long-lasting, independent company.  Over the past five years, Rubrik has achieved unprecedented growth and customer adoption in a $20B+ market. We are in the midst of a significant and permanent industry transition from complex legacy products to our groundbreaking Cloud Data Management solution. In our most recent quarter, we’ve achieved over 70% growth in our customer base with significant traction in the Global 2000. We were also named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™ and broke into the Top 10 of the Forbes Cloud 100.  We intend to continue building on our leadership position in the Data Management market, while enabling our customers to unlock the value of their data. We’re also expanding our strong ecosystem of partners to deliver comprehensive customer value. In an age of misinformation, I want to set the record straight: we’re flattered by the attention, but we’re not looking for a buyer.

Introducing Rubrik Go: Subscribe to Simplicity

Today, we’re thrilled to announce Rubrik Go, a new evergreen subscription purchasing program designed to help customers easily modernize their data centers. The program applies a SaaS approach and empowers customers to enjoy future innovation through one simple and predictable subscription license. With Rubrik Go, customers can easily access the latest data management technology through free evergreen refreshes, streamlined software editions, and the flexibility to migrate data to the public cloud at any time with no additional costs. A trend we’ve seen among our customers is that as they try to modernize their data centers or migrate to the cloud, many are held back by the lack of flexibility with traditional licensing. This traditional on-premises model typically results in higher capital expenditures, a challenge for companies restricted by annual budgets and the inability to commit to large upfront costs. On top of that, many customers are tired of trying to access the latest technology without battling price hikes, lengthy contract negotiations, and unpredictable renewals. For example, if customers wish to migrate data to the cloud, they often have to repurchase their on-premises license. Rubrik Go is designed to solve these challenges easily. To enable agile infrastructures, Rubrik Go offers a…

Top 3 Mistakes to Avoid When Automating Your Business

Businesses worldwide are leveraging automation to deliver services at a lower cost with a higher level of customer satisfaction. The return on investment for automation is well documented, both in financial benefit and higher customer retention rates. But not all efforts to implement automation are created equal, and many companies stumble to meet their goal. Integrating automation into a business requires planning and strategy. This post walks through the top pitfalls to avoid when implementing automation. Recreating the Workflow The first mistake many businesses make is automating the steps of an existing workflow. This may seem like a shortcut since the workflow provides a blueprint for the steps needed to achieve the end result. But workflows created around manual processes focus more on previously performed tasks than on the entire problem. I experienced this firsthand while developing a process to automate billing based on cloud usage. The existing workflow had many steps that required manually altering the output of the previous step and reformatting it before sending it to the next person in the chain. This process created a significant margin of error, as even minor changes caused the entire chain to break. This leads to our next major pitfall.…
