Rubrik Is Named to the Forbes Cloud 100

Rubrik is honored and humbled to be named to the Forbes Cloud 100 alongside so many innovative companies. Compiled with the help of partners Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures, the Forbes Cloud 100 recognizes the “best and brightest” of private cloud companies. The list is based on operating metrics such as revenue and funding, alongside input from 25 public cloud CEO peers. Rubrik has become the fastest growing enterprise company ever. In addition to nearing $100M run rate in booking in only six quarters selling, we have grown our customer base 11x over the past year and half, and have delivered rapid innovation via nine major product releases. The future is bright with cloud. Rubrik built the first Cloud Data Management Platform to empower customers to mobilize applications, automate protection policies, recover from ransomware, and search and analyze application data at scale. We’ve brought meaningful numbers of large enterprises and their applications to the Cloud, like Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP, Driscoll’s, and Tampa Bay Rays. We do this by making the Cloud incredibly simple, and by delivering compelling new capabilities using the Cloud that can be delivered anytime, anywhere. Rubrik was architected from Day 1 to deliver…

Data Protection for the Changing Enterprise

The modern enterprise is changing. We are moving towards a world of containers, API-first architectures, and cloud-native applications; the latter two are discussed by Chris Wahl, Rubrik’s Chief Technologist, in a previous post. Enterprise technology is moving from email to Slack, relational databases to NoSQL, and more. But not every company is moving at warp speed, and both Oracle and Microsoft are still relevant in almost every data center. While Rubrik protects the enterprise on-premises, we are far more than a converged data management hardware appliance. We support multiple architectures beyond hardware via Rubrik Edge, our software-only appliance for ROBO, and Cloud Cluster for cloud-native apps and public cloud data protection. Rubrik is evolving and growing rapidly to meet cutting-edge business requirements while maintaining a Google-like, web-scale architecture and striking simplicity. Let’s Talk Applications! Tim Carr is right (don’t tell him I said that) — DBAs typically do not like to step outside of their comfort zone or native toolsets. Luckily, with our new Oracle integration, Rubrik provides its core benefits such as immutability and policy-driven management while integrating with native Oracle capabilities. Our approach is to integrate with RMAN, which provides agentless support (yay!) but still allows Oracle DBAs to use…

Superior Architecture for a Cloud-Native World

If there’s anything that years of consulting with enterprise clients has taught me, it’s that the world of technology continues to accelerate through iteration after iteration of new architectures, models, and solutions at a pace that is difficult to grasp. We previously lived in a world where all applications resided on bare metal, and waterfall projects took years to release. Now, the rules of small steps and cloud-first are percolating throughout the minds of cloud architects, driving innovation. As Rubrik’s Chief Technologist, I’ve applied a lens to my experiences as an architect to really scratch the surface on this whole cloud data management ideal in an exploratory series of blog posts. In a nutshell, being cloud native, entirely API-driven, infinitely scalable, having instant data access, and, most importantly, being software fueled are the ingredients necessary for moving the needle in the stagnant world of data protection. The Road Traveled Thus Far Two years later, one only has to look so far as incumbent solutions using yet another coat of paint to hide long-tailed technology debts to see the short, dismal future ahead when compared to newer ways of thinking. By wiping the technology slate clean in an effort to make backup…

 Creating a Transformational Shift with Cloud Data Management

Today, I’m excited to announce KV’s investment in Rubrik, a company that will transform how enterprises recover, manage, and secure all their data across private and public clouds. Rubrik is a company with an immense market that hasn’t seen innovation in decades and a great management team with a clear vision. That makes a killer combination. Revolutionizing an Archaic Market Backup and recovery is an extremely archaic market. In the past, it has served as an insurance payment rather than a business asset. From a CIO’s perspective, any money spent on backup and recovery was in hopes that they will never use it. In the best case, it was a complete waste. Think about it — enterprises are spending money that they hope will never be useful, and is of value only in the case of a disaster. Rubrik has redefined the backup and recovery market from an insurance payment to a functional data management platform. You need to manage your data every day, every year, every decade. Rubrik helps you do that very differently and the disaster scenario is only one of many data management functions. This gives CIOs greater flexibility to manage their data based on usage needs…

How Cloud Native Archive Destroys Legacy Cost Models

A while back, I was reading about the woes of one Marko Karppinen as he described the incredible ease of getting data into a public cloud, and the equally opposite horrors of getting that data back out. His post, which can be found here, outlines his crafty plan to store around 60 GB of audio data into an archive for later retrieval and potential encoding. The challenge, then, is ensuring that data can later be pulled down into an on-premises location without breaking the bank or implied SLAs (Service Level Agreements). And this, folks, is the rub when using legacy architecture that bolts-on public cloud storage (essentially object storage) without fleshing out all of the financial and technological challenges. I’ve teased apart this idea when describing the Cloud Native property of Converged Data Management in an earlier post. “Getting data into the cloud is for amateurs. Getting data back out is for experts.” If using a public cloud for storage becomes 100s of times more expensive than intended, while also requiring a significant time investment for the technical teams involved, then it’s not a solution for data protection. While it’s true that the blog post I’m referencing is a single…

Converged Data Management Unwrapped – Cloud Native

Intelligently placing data into a variety of different formats and across geographical locations is non-trivial. With data protection, however, this isn’t just a nice to have; it’s often a functional design requirement. Doing so provides layers of safeguards against data-specific failures as well as local or regional catastrophes. In this fifth and final deep dive series post, I’m going to pick apart how Converged Data Management offers a truly Cloud Native experience for data protection workflows, and how that differs from the traditional approaches. There’s a fundamental difference between adapting a platform to take advantage of cloud data services, such as public object storage with Amazon S3, versus natively making it part of the platform. This difference can be extrapolated into one metric – simplicity. The amount of complexity that surrounds a platform drives greater inefficiencies and increased chances for error. Additionally, the base foundation of a platform ultimately dictates what features and properties are available for a long-term strategy. Without re-writing the platform from scratch – which is something largely avoided in the enterprise market – the choices are limited. After all, the spin-out and spin-in model used by large corporations to innovate doesn’t exist without reason. In the…
