Announcing Rubrik Mosaic for NoSQL

Today, we’re excited to announce Rubrik Mosaic™ 3.1, formerly Rubrik Datos IO, with enhancements to help organizations protect and manage their Apache Cassandra, DataStax Enterprise, and MongoDB NoSQL databases. This new release includes a host of new features, including support for Microsoft Azure Marketplace availability, the latest database versions and features, new productivity tools integration, and improved performance. Mosaic sets the standard for NoSQL database protection in the cloud, on-premises, and hybrid cloud.  Here’s a quick rundown of what’s new: Support for DataStax Enterprise 6.0 and DSE Search Mosaic now supports DSE 6.0 and 6.7 transparently. With version 6, DataStax implemented a new index format for SSTables that improves performance. Thanks to our partnership with DataStax, Rubrik Mosaic utilizes a new utility purpose-built by DataStax to offer support for DSE 6. If you’re considering an upgrade to DataStax Enterprise, you’ll want Mosaic 3.1. DataStax Enterprise Search is a popular feature, particularly for customers implementing catalogs, document repositories, ad-hoc reporting engines, and other applications that rely heavily on indexing. DataStax uses Apache Solr in the backend to enable search operations on any existing DSE table by creating a Solr index in DSE. With Mosaic 3.1, customers no longer need to rebuild…

How Rubrik Datos IO Reduces NoSQL Backup Storage Up to 96.4%

NoSQL databases are becoming mainstream. As enterprises deal with the changing characteristics of data and applications, many are leveraging the inherent speed and redundancy of NoSQL databases. But the downside of this native redundancy is that NoSQL databases typically store 3 or more copies of each piece of data, resulting in pricey backup and storage costs. Rubrik Datos IO (RDIO) provides powerful space efficiency capabilities in a modern data management product purpose-built for distributed architectures such as NoSQL databases. Our approach helps customers realize their NoSQL database deployments in an easy-to-use data protection solution that enables them to achieve up to 96.4% in backup storage savings. This blog post explores two major features that make this possible: semantic deduplication and incremental forever.   Rubrik Datos IO’s industry-first semantic deduplication is the answer to the fundamental shortcomings that traditional block-level deduplication encountered in the world of modern distributed NoSQL databases (MongoDB, Apache Cassandra, DataStax). I’ll dive into the limitations of two distributions of Cassandra, DataStax Enterprise and Apache Cassandra, and how RDIO addresses them. At a high-level, these deduplication shortcomings fall into two categories: compression and housekeeping. One of the main reasons NoSQL deduplication is challenging is that the majority of…

Challenges of NoSQL Data Management: An Architect’s View

More and more enterprises are adopting modern NoSQL databases like MongoDB and Apache Cassandra (DataStax) to enable rapid development of next-generation applications (AI/ML, IoT, eCommerce, customer experience). However, while these databases can help speed up application development, they lack enterprise-class recovery solutions, putting organizations at risk of data loss. While NoSQL databases offer capabilities such as cross data-center database replication, they do not provide point-in-time backup and recovery. If data errors are introduced or data is accidentally deleted, the databases’ redundant-node replication can lead to almost immediate corruption of critical data across all nodes. In this post, I’ll dive into NoSQL data protection requirements and the technical challenges that enterprise- grade data management solutions must address. Comprehensive data management is a must for running mission-critical applications in enterprise environments (private cloud, hybrid clouds, or public clouds). As the shift to these next-generation applications and NoSQL databases increases, we see new data management requirements emerging: Eventually-consistent databases require novel point-in-time techniques for consistent state across a database cluster. The elastic nature of next-generation databases necessitates backup and recovery to be highly available, scalable, and failure resilient. Backups need to be maintained in native (source) formats for advanced data management services such…

50+ Customer Visits, 1 Key Theme: NoSQL Is Now Mainstream In Enterprise

Over the past year, I’ve had the good fortune of sitting down with leading enterprises to speak with CIOs, enterprise architects, database engineering leaders, and more. Many of these discussions centered on the evolving world of business applications and databases and the challenges of digital transformation initiatives (customer experience, digital banking experience, data-as-a-service, real-time analytics, etc). In these discussions, I gained insight into why enterprises are embracing NoSQL databases, and several enterprise data management trends stood out to me. Here are the top three that I believe are shaping the market and CIO digital transformation initiatives the most in 2019: Enterprise NoSQL Adoption Is Now Mainstream Non-relational NoSQL databases are no longer stepchildren of the relational database space but hold their own prominent place in the enterprise data architecture strategy. In recent years, NoSQL has become critical for building cloud-native applications, given that traditional relational databases cannot deliver the same agility, flexibility, and performance that these modern applications need. NoSQL started with data stores such as MongoDB and Apache Cassandra but is now evolving to include in-memory database stores like Redis and search products like ElasticSearch and Splunk, which are fast developing as cornerstones for operational and analytical use cases.…

Rubrik Datos IO Streaming Recovery: Near-Zero RTO for NoSQL Databases

Backup and recovery has been overlooked as backwaters of enterprise data. Innovations were incremental at best until the arrival of Rubrik, the company that led the world to rethink backup and recovery as the frontier of data management for cloud-connected enterprises. Data protection has long been a pain point for enterprises across industries. Applications built on top of traditional databases like Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, or IBM DB2 are generally stateful end-to-end. This means that whether you are recovering from media failures, site loss or user errors, you must first shutdown the application, recover the backend database, and reconnect your application before consumers can access it again. However, things are different in the world of next-generation applications that are deployed on modern distributed architectures such as NoSQL databases (MongoDB, Apache Cassandra, DataStax, CouchBase, Apache HBase, and many others). Shared-nothing architectures, eventually consistency nature of write operations, and scale-out capabilities force us to rethink NoSQL backup and recovery. But probably the most important aspect is the shear scale of data sets that are stored and maintained in these modern NoSQL databases. These databases power a number of modern enterprise use cases, including Internet of Things (IoT), security/customer real-time analytics, customer 360…

At Rubrik, we believe Rubrik Datos IO has come along at a perfect time. As more organizations choose NoSQL databases to rapidly build their modern applications, they also struggle with ensuring these applications are protected. Rubrik Datos IO was built to tackle this problem head on. We recognize that many of you are interested in learning more about Rubrik Datos IO for NoSQL and distributed databases, and we recently held a webinar to discuss our product – and our customers – in greater detail. Here’s a quick rundown of what we covered in the webinar. The background: why NoSQL databases need data protection Enterprises are increasingly investing in NoSQL and cloud-native infrastructure. As with most big trends in technology, there are many factors behind this: these platforms take advantage of distributed commodity hardware, are designed with today’s unstructured data in mind, and are easier to configure as highly available. Today, applications built on NoSQL databases like MongoDB and Apache Cassandra / Datastax are at the center of many Fortune 500 companies’ operations. Companies that selected these products to help their application developers build faster 10 years ago now have many critical applications at scale. And because these databases enable rapid…
