Right Product, Right Team, Right Time: Why I Joined Rubrik

During my 25 years at Cisco, the key trait that helped us stay ahead of the competition was the ability to reimagine ourselves and spot market transitions long before others saw them coming. And in today’s digital world, those market transitions are happening faster and more frequently than ever before. From farming, to manufacturing, to customer engagement – everything that we know is changing right before our eyes. The byproduct of this digital revolution is that companies are now generating data at an exponential rate. In this new world, data is a company’s most valuable asset, after their employees, of course. But companies have relied on outdated legacy technology to manage and protect that data. The result, as you might expect, isn’t pretty—it’s a cumbersome, time-consuming process that stifles innovation and keeps companies from focusing on what really matters. Rubrik co-founder and CEO Bipul Sinha saw this market transition coming. In just four years, he’s built a company on a clear path to becoming a multibillion-dollar business and one of the world’s next great enterprise technology companies. That’s why I’m thrilled to announce today that I’ve joined the Rubrik team as both a board advisor and a personal investor. The…

Advancing Your Data Protection Strategy with APIs

In today’s interconnected world, having a stand-alone product that only works within an ecosystem is not a reliable business proposition. The ability to change how data is stored, managed, and recovered is no longer a nice-to-have, but imperative to drive business and processes forward. The Current situation Traditionally, managing data was possible through GUI interfaces and, in some cases, by using not-very-well documented command line tools. Because these toxols are platform dependent and require specific documentation, they can slow down adoption and limit the usability of these products. Furthermore, introducing additional tools often produces a perpetual cycle of deployment and patch management to keep the tools up-to-date. There is also the, even if ever so slight, risk of introducing an unintended security vulnerability by having additional tooling installed on your systems. There have been recent examples in which third-party management tools were explicitly targeted and used for privilege escalation or data exfiltration. The Solution Because of API-driven development, we allow all our customers to interact with Rubrik directly. The advantage of this is that we can communicate with the API from any platform and use any scripting or programming language. As a result, our API-first solution delivers a more dynamic…

Embracing Digital Transformation with Rubrik and Azure

The 2017 Microsoft Ignite conference was an event where several items were crossed off my bucket list. Not only did I get to spend an hour recording an episode of the Datanauts Podcast with the infamous Jeffrey Snover, creator of PowerShell and all-around nice guy, but I also held the privilege of showcasing Rubrik’s official integration across both Azure and Azure Stack in the expo hall. The idea that cloud-born services, such as elastic compute pools and Function-as-a-Service (FaaS) features, can be pushed towards on-prem deployments is fairly magical, and that’s the idea behind Azure Stack. But I’m getting a bit ahead of myself. The real question to answer starts with “why push cloud services to co-exist on premises?” And in this case, I’ll point to the presentation given by Mr. Snover on data center transformation. In it, he shares his thoughts on how the very fabric of being an IT professional is changing. Rather than being tactically focused on resources that create and deploy infrastructure, we’re gaining momentum as strategically-positioned forces that can go beyond staying relevant and actually get ahead of the mounting pile of technical debt that has quagmired progress in the past. Part of this change…

CarePoint Health Simplifies Operations with Rubrik and Microsoft Azure

Headquartered in Jersey City, New Jersey, CarePoint Health is a leader in the delivery of preventive medicine, healthcare education, and disease management. Each year, CarePoint Health delivers hundreds of thousands of healthcare services to residents in Hudson County through its three area hospitals. Lev Goronshteyn, CTO at CarePoint Health, discusses how Rubrik and Microsoft Azure simplified CarePoint’s data management operations and helped them eliminate tape. What challenges were you experiencing with data protection? When we combined the three hospital IT environments, it created a lot of complexity and performance challenges for us. Our old system was inherently difficult to use, our backups were taking 12 hours or longer to complete, and our restores could take hours. We were spending a lot of time on backups, and we wanted to free our employees up to work on other initiatives. We also were sitting on a vast amount of tape, which was challenging to manage and needed to be eliminated. Why did you choose Rubrik and Microsoft Azure? We knew that by transitioning to a hybrid cloud we could unlock cost savings and efficiency gains that weren’t possible with our legacy systems. To get the results we wanted, we knew that we needed…

Today, we’re excited to celebrate the past four years at Rubrik and the growth we’ve experienced along the way. Each year has been filled with unbelievable breakthroughs, but I think this one really cemented Rubrik as the fastest growing enterprise company. To commemorate our growth, as well as the customers and partners who support us, let’s take a look at some of our key milestones in 2017. Expanded Our Enterprise Data Management Solution One of the biggest areas of momentum for us has been in engineering and product development.

Encrypting Your Data in the Cloud, Part 1: Why It Matters

Data Breaches Are Trending While IT security in 2018 has been dominated with news about CPU vulnerabilities, we may very well look back on 2017 as the year of online data breaches and cloud data leaks. From stolen consumer data due to unpatched vulnerabilities to sensitive data leaks due to misconfigured cloud storage buckets, it seems that no one’s data was safe in 2017. For a number of reasons, this is a trend that is likely to continue in 2018 and beyond: The inexorable move from analog to digital means more and more of our data is being stored on computers and websites that are targets for hackers. For example, the Equifax breach impacted 145 million consumers who had personal information stolen. A greater percentage of company employees work remotely using a wide range of devices from desktops to smartphones. This expands the threat landscape and gives malicious actors more ways to compromise valuable data. The growth of the public cloud means that increasingly more data is being stored outside of company data centers in repositories that are accessible via public endpoints. This move to the cloud requires knowledge and skill sets that are still in short supply, leading to…

3 Cloud Data Management Trends to Watch in 2018

Enterprises across verticals are undergoing a digital transformation. They must now operate in the “always on” economy and execute instant service delivery to meet modern consumer demands. This shift requires an infrastructure that supports 24/7 application availability in both data center and cloud, while also ensuring data is protected and compliant. As data management becomes increasingly crucial to meet business goals, companies are exploring new solutions to streamline and automate their processes. Here are the top trends you can expect to see in 2018: 1. AI-Powered Data Management Leveraging machine learning for data protection and analysis provides valuable business opportunities, but enterprises have barely scratched the surface. According to Gartner, AI will be a major digital driver for reinventing both business models and the customer experience through 2025. One application of ML that many companies are expected to explore relates to event-driven IT. This model involves constantly sensing and responding to business events, which could be anything from a completed transaction to threat detection. As companies prepare for intelligent applications and analysis, they will seek solutions that can centralize data management across all their environments. 2. Accelerated Cloud Adoption While cloud computing isn’t new to the enterprise lexicon, it is…
