Rubrik Datos IO 3.0: NoSQL Database Protection in the World of Containers

Last month, we were thrilled to announce Rubrik Datos IO 3.0, the biggest Datos IO launch ever. The most exciting additions of this release include new support for NoSQL databases deployed on containers and the ability to deploy Datos IO natively as a Docker container. These capabilities enable enterprises that are adapting container-based architectures to pursue digital transformation and build out their multi-cloud strategies. The Journey from Physical Servers to VMs to Containers The technology around us is evolving rapidly. We started with building applications that run on servers (aka physical machines) and then gradually moved to VMs that allowed us to run multiple applications on a single physical machine. Though this helped optimize data center utilization, procuring and managing physical and virtual machines incurred time and operational costs. Cloud quickly become the solution that enabled faster time-to-market while achieving massive cost savings. However, with so many infrastructure choices, precious developer time is often wasted in deciding the underlying infrastructure. Containers address this pain point by enabling developers to spend time building robust applications, leaving the choice of underlying infrastructure to IT. Organizations are increasingly embracing this next wave to build containerized applications. With containers, they no longer have to…

Rubrik Datos IO 3.0: Enterprise Data Protection for NoSQL Databases

More and more, leading enterprises are turning to next-generation databases to run their businesses and serve their customers. NoSQL databases have become mainstream, with MongoDB and Cassandra / DataStax powering some of the most prominent customer-facing applications. Earlier this year, Rubrik acquired market leader Datos IO after realizing the growing need for a solution built to protect NoSQL databases at enterprise scale. Today, we’re thrilled to announce Datos IO 3.0, codenamed Cygnus, which delivers Rubrik simplicity at NoSQL scale. Our Cygnus release is packed with capabilities to meet the stringent data management needs of large-scale production environments. These features span across three vectors: enterprise-grade features to provide a simple and powerful user experience at scale; new capabilities designed for growing, high change-rate MongoDB workloads; and complete hybrid and multi-cloud support. Here are the key highlights of our new offerings: Enterprise Readiness The majority of our customers are within the enterprise market segment. These organizations are becoming trailblazers of new products and technology for two simple reasons: digital transformation initiatives are accelerating adoption of modern applications and non-relational databases, and modern databases require durable data management that matches the standards of traditional relational databases like Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and DB2.…

Introducing Rubrik Alta 4.2: Purpose-built for the Enterprise Hybrid Cloud

As enterprises undergo digital transformation, many have embraced hybrid cloud by hosting their applications on a blend of infrastructure platforms, including private cloud, public cloud, and traditional data centers. This trend shows no signs of slowing down, with over 90% of enterprises expected to use multiple cloud services and platforms by 2020.* Today, we’re thrilled to help solve the biggest challenges of the hybrid cloud enterprise with Rubrik Alta 4.2. Our newest additions simplify how organizations manage and protect data across their hybrid cloud deployments, whether they are building on AWS or other environments. Here are the key highlights of our new offering: Cloud-native Data Protection Through a Single Control Plane As enterprises look to deploy more applications on AWS, many are burdened with complex and fragmented legacy solutions. Alta 4.2 makes it easier to protect workloads running on AWS EC2 through Rubrik’s cloud-native backup and lifecycle management capabilities. To do this, we use native AWS APIs to take snapshots of the EBS volumes and add core Rubrik services, including Google-like search, policy-driven automation, and instant data access. Our customers can also leverage this feature to instantiate a replica of any EC2 instance in another AWS availability zone or region–with just…

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…

FranceTV Publicité Accelerates Hybrid Cloud with Data Management Built for Security

Pascal Moulin, CTO of FranceTV Publicité, discusses the challenges of a legacy approach, why they chose Rubrik, and moving towards a hybrid cloud strategy with Rubrik. Tell me about FranceTV Publicité and your overall IT strategy. FranceTV Publicité is France Télévisions’s advertising network, accounting for 27.6% of PdA TV in France. France Télévisions is one of the world’s largest media brands with an average of 32.5 million viewers a day and a digital audience of 26.5 million of monthly unique visitors.

Our IT infrastructure is critical to France Télévisions’s advertising and broadcasting operations. To ensure our systems run smoothly, we need a data management solution that is fast and reliable. Rubrik delivers that speed and modernizes our IT infrastructure. What challenges were you experiencing with your legacy solution? We had a traditional legacy backup solution consisting of multiple components such as software, hardware, and tape. It was very complex to manage, and restores were difficult and time consuming. It was also not secure since our data was not encrypted. Overall, one of our key objectives was to refresh…

One Cloud to Rule Them All

Looking at modern IT infrastructures, it is clear we have mostly entered a cloud-first era. Even more traditional enterprises are incorporating a cloud strategy at the risk of being out-innovated or outpaced by their competition. “We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten. Don’t let yourself be lulled into inaction.” — Bill Gates While the public cloud has gained a lot of attention with the rise of Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure, it is important to still ask yourself which “cloud-like” characteristics and services can benefit your particular environment. Not every business will benefit from moving completely into the public cloud. To solve for your specific use case, you need to look at all the tools at your disposal. Journey to the Cloud Not everyone takes the same path to the cloud, nor should they. As Eric Shanks wrote in his Gestalt IT blogpost, “Rubrik’s own Internet page title is ‘The Cloud Data Management Company’ which just screams at customers that it’s a cutting edge future looking company.” I agree that cloud-washing is rampant, and cloud should be considered less of a check box and…
