Clouditalia Drives Adoption of Modern Data Management in Italy with Rubrik

Clouditalia is the first Italian company to provide integrated cloud and telecommunications services dedicated to small and medium-sized enterprises. Last week at VMworld Barcelona, I sat down with Bernardo Marzucchi, CTO, and Delio Trapani, Data Center Technology Manager, to discuss how Clouditalia is using Rubrik to reinforce its competitive edge in the Italian market What differentiates Clouditalia from other Managed Service Providers? Clouditalia is a telecommunications and cloud services provider focused on small and medium enterprises (SME) in Italy. We have 35% of our management infrastructure dedicated to data protection. Our main difference is that we satisfy customers’ needs in a customized manner. Our ability to offer extremely tailored services directed towards our customers’ needs depends on providing the most innovative technologies available in the market. Clouditalia is the first mover in Italy which adopted Rubrik’s solution, giving us a strong competitive advantage in the market. Describe the current IT landscape in Italy. In Italy, the IT transformation is at an early stage. However, the rate of adoption of modern technologies in Italy is growing day by day.

Fortune 500 Consumer Retail Company Simplifies Data Protection with Rubrik

At VMworld 2016, I sat down with one of our customers at a Fortune 500 consumer retail company to discuss how they are using Rubrik and the benefits they have seen. As a result, they have wiped out management complexity for their backup and recovery environment and created a plan to expand their global footprint. What type of backup challenges were you experiencing? Our team was looking to simplify backup and recovery. We were previously using multiple solutions and were frustrated by the time needed to train employees let alone recover data. It just wasn’t feasible, and we needed faster recovery times. Additionally, our previous solution was extremely expensive. We have two heavy data centers, and we were running out of runway in our remote locations as well as our local locations. To expand storage space within our former solution would have been very costly. What sold you on Rubrik? While we were evaluating other solutions, when we saw your product, it spoke for itself. That was the biggest thing. I don’t think anyone on our team could effectively know how to use our previous product. With Rubrik, I can take anyone off the street, and in less than hour,…

Evaluating Rubrik From an End User’s Perspective

Lee Merrill, a Senior Technical Support Engineer at Rubrik, was formerly a customer of Rubrik. In this blog post, Lee shares his experience and what he learned while evaluating Rubrik from an end user’s perspective. How did you hear about Rubrik when you were a customer? I had an excellent experience as a Rubrik customer. We had some pretty significant pain points with backup and had been mainly looking at storage to ease our pain. Disk space was our major issue with backups, so we had to remove backups to keep things going. This was a constant pain and consumed a lot of time. A vendor of ours had heard about “this product” that we should check out. He thought it would solve our backup issues. Afterwards, we had our hands on our first Brik. Describe your experience when installing Rubrik A memory I have with Rubrik is setting it up with Eric. After we ingested one small 50GB VM, I thought we should put our file servers to the test.  Thus, 4-5TB VMs were next. At first, these had a couple issue with ingestion, but some of it was due to us only having 1GB nics. Support and engineering was…

Langs Building Supplies Stops Ransomware Attack in its Tracks

A ransomware attack prevented by a reliable, next-gen backup solution Langs Building Supplies, a leading supplier of timber products in South Queensland, Australia, was recently hit by a ransomware attack. Due to its effective backup infrastructure, the company was able to thwart the threat and restore its data without paying a ransom. Ransomware is a special type of malware that encrypts victims’ data and prevents them from accessing it until a ransom is paid. In a previous post, our security lead David Ramos explained the rising threat of ransomware and strategies for prevention. As Ramos stated, “With an effective backup solution, ransomware can ideally be reduced to a minor inconvenience.” This was certainly true for Langs Building Supplies. We sat down with Matthew Day, ICT and Support Manager at Langs Building Supplies, to discuss his experience defending against a ransomware attack. Q: How were you able to identify a ransomware attack had occurred? A: We have monitoring tools in place to send alerts when there are high change rates in the data structure. An alert was triggered, and we were able to shut down the affected VDI desktop within minutes. Because we could stop the attack mid-stream, we were able…

TotalJobs Group Ltd. Embraces Backup Simplicity with Rubrik

What happens when one of UK’s leading job boards decides to modernize its outdated backup solution? It teams up with Rubrik. Totaljobs Group Ltd is the UK’s largest and fastest-growing online recruitment company, comprising 190,000 jobs across six job boards. Each month, 7 million jobseekers generate 3.3 million applications on Totaljobs. After struggling with various backup solutions implemented across multiple groups within the company, Totaljobs kicked off a search for a modern backup solution that could simplify daily management and easily scale with a fast-growing business. Holger Sell, Corporate IT Services Manager at TJG outlines their decision process for selecting Rubrik. Struggling Under the Legacy Approach “We had outgrown our current backup solution and wanted to move to a solution that was more modern, able to scale with us, and take up less of our time to manage. We used to deal with failed backups and very poor customer service when we needed to recover any data. In addition, having tape as an archive method meant recovery was extra slow and painful.”“We have virtualised 100% of our infrastructure and our previous solution showed its age. I looked at several known products including those known as market leaders for VM backups,…

Pure Rubrik Goodness

As Pure//Accelerate approaches, one of my favorite aspects of winning solutions comes to mind. It’s a virtue that transforms products into MVPs, rather than the drama generators so common on the court and in the field. What is it? Simplicity Businesses have enough knobs and pain points with tier-1 Oracle/SAP deployments and SQL, SharePoint and Exchange farms. The last thing they need is for storage and data protection to jump on the pile. That’s why enterprises need Pure Storage and Rubrik. From the ground up, Pure and Rubrik have simplicity in their DNA. If you have a FlashArray on the floor, then you already know the freedom and ease it brings to storage infrastructure. Gone are the days of tweaking with RAID sets or tuning LUNs to squeeze out a few performance points. With a few cables and a vSphere plugin, Pure serves up datastores and gets out of the way. Rubrik brings the same unobtrusive value to data protection and is the perfect pairing to Pure. From rack & go to policy-driven automation to instant recovery, Rubrik drives straight to the point and with beautiful simplicity.Rack & Go Rack & Go The first thing that stands out with Rubrik is its lean footprint–it doesn’t eat…

Leeward Business Advisors Drives Competitive Advantage with Rubrik

Jason Klein, CTO at Leeward Business Advisors, spends his time hunting for the latest disruptive enterprise technology to transform business outcomes. An IT architect trained in economics, he’s racked up almost two decades of enterprise tech experience. Tell me about Leeward Business Advisors and how it differentiates from other service providers? We’re a Midwest managed service provider that delivers CTO/CIO-level consulting services for all types of organizations, from non-profits with 5-10 users to departments within large, Fortune 100 customers.  We take a business-centric approach that focuses on aligning business leadership with technology leadership. We accomplish this by engaging C-level executives to help prioritize business initiatives and outcomes that can be translated to the technology teams. We then offer services that accelerate those outcomes. How were you solving the data protection challenge prior to Rubrik? Our previous vendor didn’t provide us with any competitive advantage. The product works fine but didn’t fit into our overall service provider approach. We were looking for webscale solutions that could deliver linear scalability and mitigate single points of failure. We ended up hitting some performance and scalability issues with our previous solution. I’ve seen customers switch from X to Y to Z, trying to find…
