The Right Recipe for a Multi-Cloud Transition

An inside look at how America’s Test Kitchen navigated their multi-cloud journey The outset of a new year (and a new decade) is prime time for IT teams to reevaluate their environments and scope out new data management strategies. And yet, with talk of digital transformation and cloud journeys saturating the air at tech conferences and consuming Twitter feeds, it’s also prime time for IT leaders to catch a case of the buzzword blues. The amount of information and choices available can be more paralyzing than freeing, leaving IT teams trudging into 2020 without any energy or motivation to enact change and modernize their infrastructure.  But before all the buzzwords have you spinning into an existential crisis, consider taking a page out of Dustin Brandt’s book. Brandt, Director of IT at America’s Test Kitchen (ATK), saw a relocation in ATK’s headquarters as an opportunity to reduce their data center footprint and overhaul their entire IT infrastructure. Despite challenges of re-platforming and re-provisioning infrastructure, ensuring consistent security, and navigating complex network integrations, Brandt also seized this opportunity to transition to a multi-cloud model. Take a look at how Brandt and his team made these changes as painless as possible, and what…

Think You’re Ready for Digital Transformation? Set up for Success with Rubrik Andes 5.0

Updated 1/31: Rubrik Andes 5.0 is Generally Available as of January 31, 2019. Digital transformation is top-of-mind for every enterprise. Recent research predicts that by the end of 2019, digital transformation spending will be up 42% from 2017.* At its core, digital transformation means using technology to automate manual processes in order to respond to the market faster. It’s critical for driving key business outcomes such as enabling employees to develop products, delighting customers with rich experiences, and outpacing competition–all while streamlining operations for cost-efficiencies. But in reality, enterprises are still in the infancy stage of their journey. From the beginning, Rubrik was architected to provide the foundation necessary for transitioning into a digital-first company. Here’s how we’ve helped our customers accelerate their digital transformation so far: API-driven automation: CIOs are constantly looking for ways to increase automation to deliver IT-as-a-Service and empower their organization beyond IT. Rubrik was built to be API-first, meaning that everything we do is available over our RESTful APIs. This enables admins to leverage self-service so they can focus on more strategic business goals–faster product development, improved operational efficiencies, and building competitive edge.

VM Linking: Because Data Outlives Infrastructure

At Rubrik, we believe in liberating data from infrastructure so that it can be instantly accessed at anytime, anywhere. This is becoming increasingly important as companies undergo digital transformation, and we painstakingly make sure that we support the full life cycle of data even as the underlying infrastructure changes. With our customers’ needs in mind,  we developed a simple, but very powerful, feature designed to deliver true data mobility – VM linking. The VM linking feature ensures that as VMs are moved between vCenter servers, the Rubrik system is able to correlate the different “identities” of the VMs across these servers. This allows Rubrik to provide consistent protection for VMs and easy access to the VMs historical snapshots, regardless of the vCenter server from where they were taken. VM linking solves some of the biggest pain points our customers have experienced when managing historical backup data in a changing infrastructure. To illustrate, I’ll walk through a few examples of how customers benefit from this new capability. Swing Migration to a Greenfield vCenter Deployment With the new releases of vSphere, along with the ending of support for older vSphere versions approaching, many customers are planning upgrades as part of their data…
