VMworld 2018: Rubrik Style
I first got involved with VMworld in 2015, and every year brings something new both in the depth of learning and the unique community activities. And, of course, I’ve been able to meet some great people I now call my friends. VMworld is quickly approaching, but this time, I have a different seat to watch and participate from. This is the first year I get to go as a Rubrik Technical Marketing Engineer, and to say I’m excited is a major understatement. The team has many activities planned that are sure to help anyone attending. We hope to see you at our sessions, booths, and legendary VMworld party with performances by The Roots and Run-DMC.

Welcome to Camp Rubrik!
This year, we’re thrilled to launch Camp Rubrik, a hands-on event that goes under the hood of our platform. We’re bringing these labs to cities across N. America and Europe (for now) to offer a fresh approach to learning about Rubrik’s founding principles and underlying technology. Here’s a glimpse of what attendees can expect when they arrive to camp: Hands-On Experience Camp Rubrik allows customers and prospects to immerse themselves into our product through interactive labs. By accessing a mobile tactical suite or a remotely hosted infrastructure, participants go through the steps of creating and assigning SLA domains, leveraging Live Mount for a VM and SQL databases, and many other core use cases. The labs consist of eight sections with multiple subtasks. Once a section is completed, attendees earn an exclusive badge that may be worn proudly on their custom Camp Rubrik rucksacks! Thought Leadership Camp Rubrik isn’t just about exploring our product. We aim to create an event that explores the current and future IT landscape as enterprises onboard to the cloud. Prior to diving into our product, attendees will engage in a fireside chat with some of the best and brightest from Rubrik. We also bring in a…
Rubrik Joins Global .NEXT Series for 2017
Rubrik is excited to sponsor Nutanix .NEXT in Washington D.C. and .NEXT Europe in Nice, France. We’re also sponsoring the .NEXT on Tour series, which takes place in major cities worldwide. Rubrik’s strategic partnership with Nutanix began in 2015, and we’ll be showcasing our product at all of the Nutanix events. Nutanix’s hyperconverged infrastructure stack eliminates the bloat of legacy architecture, simplifies datacenter management, and deploys in under an hour. Rubrik Cloud Data Management (CDM) collapses physically separate hardware and software resources – like backup software, catalog management, deduplicated storage, and data orchestration – into a single fabric that scales up to thousands of nodes. Deduplication, compression, and other data services scale in-line with the cluster to maximize efficiency and savings. Rubrik provides complete data protection for Nutanix environments, including automated backup, instant recovery, unlimited replication, and data archival. Nutanix customers can get Rubrik up and running in less than an hour. Rubrik automatically discovers the entire infrastructure running on the Nutanix platform. Users create data protection policies for backup, replication, and archival in a single policy engine. They assign these to the applications based on data governance needs. Customers achieve near-zero RTO and flexible RPOs, conduct instant recovery testing, and repurpose backup…
Exploring Cloud Data Management at Tech Field Day 12
It’s not often that I get to present to a room full of amazingly talented colleagues gathered from all around the world. But when I do, it’s typically during one of Gestalt IT’s Field Day presentations. Recently, the Rubrik team sat down in front of a delegation from Tech Field Day 12 to get nerdy and deep dive into various components within the Rubrik Cloud Data Management stack. The goal was to dissect the simplicity that is baked into our enterprise-grade software offering and showcase how it works. If you missed the event, no worries! I’m going to walk you through the topics we covered and share all of the video recordings. As a special bonus, you can view Rubrik’s past appearances at Tech Field Day 10 and Virtualization Field Day 5. I also made sure to include a special slide for our friend Eric Wright over at Turbonomic because of his Tweet: Dear every single tech marketing team: please stop using the phrase "game-changing". Seriously, just stop. — Eric Wright (@discoposse) November 15, 2016 Rubrik Introduction The first segment provided a level set for those who are new to Rubrik, but also discussed what’s new with the latest and…
