Rubrik Doubles Down on Oracle Database Support, Delivering Instant Recovery and Clones at Scale

How long does it take you to backup a multi-terabyte Oracle database? How long does it take you to restore such a large database or clone it for developers? How do you manage hundreds, if not thousands, of backup scripts as your databases proliferate? How do you empower DBAs and developers to self-serve their data recovery and access needs while maintaining data governance and compliance? These are the questions Oracle DBAs and backup admins struggle with every day, especially as their digital transformation initiatives cause mission-critical database explosion and prolonged backup and recovery times. At Rubrik, we aim to remove these pain points and protect the world’s largest databases. We’re excited to introduce new capabilities built to run your mission-critical databases without compromising performance, security, and flexibility for DBAs, developers, and backup admins. Our support for Oracle databases will address three key data management challenges: inferior recovery times of large-scale databases, management complexity from manual scripting, and operational inefficiencies between database and backup admins.   Rubrik debuts Live Mount for Oracle databases, delivering near-zero RTOs with instant recovery and live migration upon failback. DBAs can also provide instant clones to developers, accelerating application development, testing and ETL (extract, transform, and…

Stop Waiting for Full Restores: SQL Server Live Mount for Item-Level Recovery

Regardless of how big or small an organization is, chances are that they rely heavily on a database to power some of their most important mission-critical applications. For this reason, organizations go to great lengths to ensure databases are protected and data has been backed up multiple times to various locations. While the focus seems to always be on backups, a strong data protection strategy must also take into consideration recovery–more specifically, the Recovery Time Objectives (RTO). After all, it’s the recovery that gets us back online, granting end-users and customers access to what they need. The database of choice for many enterprises is Microsoft SQL Server. Traditional recovery methods that move data from a data protection solution back into production SQL Servers are ideal for entire database restores, but they lack the ability to restore individual tables or records. Should we really have to wait for storage to be provisioned and a complete database to be copied across the network just to restore a few rows or records that were accidentally deleted? When dealing with large databases, traditional recovery methods can drastically affect whether or not an RTO is met. Even more, when dealing with highly-transactional databases, companies run…

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…

NAS Recovery for the Cloud Era

At Rubrik, we have architected our product for enterprise scale. Our typical NAS customer has at least a few hundred TBs, up to many PBs, of NAS in their environment.  Backing up this large of an environment while ensuring SLA compliance is a huge challenge for them, as it requires a platform that is highly parallelized, vendor-agnostic, and policy-based. With our customers’ pain points at the forefront of our minds, we have built an innovative solution to managing NAS. A Modern Approach to Backing Up NAS We’re focused on developing a solution that delivers both simplicity and high performance, even in large-scale environments. For enterprise customers with NAS systems, our approach delivers four key benefits: Cost-effectiveness: Just like Rubrik is disrupting the overall backup and recovery industry, we’re developing a truly innovative way of protecting today’s enterprise environments. We take a cloud-first approach to our NAS solution so that users can enjoy the flexibility and cost-efficiency of the cloud. Not only do we provide our customers with the ability to archive to on-prem targets such as NFS and object stores, but we also allow users to store files of both structured data (like documents or spreadsheets) and unstructured data (like PDFs…

Grove Bank & Trust Is Hurricane-Ready with Rubrik

A South Florida staple since 1926, Grove Bank & Trust is the oldest continuously operating bank in Miami Dade County. Named for the Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami that hosts its headquarters, Grove Bank & Trust delivers checking, savings, lending, financial planning, insurance, and investment services to customers through its five branch offices in Miami, Aventura, and Coral Gables. At Grove Bank & Trust, CIO Sergio Garcia leads a team of three that handles all IT functions and initiatives across the entire bank. What challenges were you experiencing with data protection? Our legacy backup solution was unreliable, difficult to manage, and often resulted in failed backups. These inadequacies placed Grove Bank at risk of being non-compliant with SLAs and industry regulations. We have to hold a lot of our data for multiple years, and we weren’t backing up everything that we needed to in case of a disaster. It’s not just that the old solution was difficult to use, it’s that it made it difficult to provide the regulators with proof that we have backups, can recover, and have completed adequate testing. What were you looking for in your new solution? The bank is growing very rapidly, and we’ve been aggressively…

Chapters Health System Chooses Rubrik to Combat Ransomware and Manage Nutanix AHV Environment

Headquartered in Temple Terrace, Florida, Chapters Health System is a principal provider of care for persons affected by advanced and life-limiting illnesses. As one of the country’s first post-acute care systems, Chapters Health is a progressive leader in the delivery of hospice, palliative care, and home health services. Each year, Chapters Health delivers hundreds of thousands of healthcare services across eight counties in West Central Florida through its inpatient and outpatient locations. Chris Williams, Director of IT Operations at Chapters Health, and Mike Parkin, Director of IT Security, discuss how Rubrik protects against the threat of Ransomware and empowers their multi-hypervisor strategy. What challenges were you experiencing with data protection? CW: We were concerned with the growing threat of Ransomware, particularly given the prevalence of attacks targeting hospitals and healthcare systems. The previous solution also failed to provide adequate visibility, which resulted in us needing to physically call the vendor to check the status of a backup. Conducting maintenance was a pain, too. Every new software update would result in issues with our agents or logs not being truncated. MP: We wanted to implement Nutanix AHV, which, with our previous vendor, would have forced us to purchase additional hardware and…

Live Mount: Never Wait for a Restore Again!

If you’ve been keeping an eye on Rubrik, you probably have seen the term Live Mount a lot. So, what exactly is Live Mount? And why is it such a big deal? Live Mount describes the process of restoring a full VM from a backup – in a matter of seconds. Rubrik created Live Mount to satisfy lower RTOs while simultaneously lowering the total cost of ownership. If you need to get your data and application back up and running, but your business cannot withstand waiting for a restore, Live Mount is for you. To fully understand how this works, let’s first explore what a restore is by comparing a well-known backup and restore workflow. Suppose a backup job takes you 1 hour to perform. However, your data gets corrupted and you need to restore. With legacy solutions, a restore could take hours to complete. And every minute that passes with your data down is a financial loss for your business. In a traditional IT shop, the workaround for faster recovery is investing significantly in tools to speed up your backup windows and deploying replication technologies. These costs quickly accrue for a business. Rubrik’s Live Mount capability resolves this issue…

How to Avoid Ransomware Jail

It’s 1983, and Ronald Reagan is sitting down to watch the hit film War Games. Five days later, the president asked his secretaries of state, “Could a scenario like war games ever happen?” One week later, General Vessey returned with the answer: “Mr. President, it is a lot worse than you think.” Was this the first time that cyber security and privacy had surfaced in computer systems? Categorically, no. Security and Privacy in Computer systems 1967 by Willis Ware was the first paper on the topic — written in 1967. So, since the beginning of networked computing, cyber security, and privacy have been a factor. So, why is it suddenly a huge industry buzzword? My thoughts on this are twofold: Across governments, the use and ideas of cyber warfare were dismissed, ignored, or forgotten. But in 2007, the Aurora test categorically proved that cyber attackers could inflict physical damage using computer tools. This was a pivotal moment, as critical infrastructure was at risk. Cybercrime then shifted to the public sphere with cyber groups lining their sights on non-government attacks, such as online fraud, ransomware, malware, and phishing. The role that security and privacy now play in IT and our personal lives…
