Long Live vCloud Director!

Although now focused on service providers, vCloud Director is alive and well, as shown by the #LongLivevCD hashtag on Twitter. vCloud Director (vCD) makes it easy for cloud service providers or managed service providers (MSPs) to manage and operate virtual data centers (VDCs) for multiple consumers or tenants. The solution can automate the creation of VDCs based on consumer resource needs and assign the appropriate policies necessary to maintain a proper allocation of resources. vCD also provides a unique portal for consumers to manage various cloud services and workloads on their own. At Rubrik, we’re excited to further our customers’ abilities to create customized private cloud offerings tailored their environment. Our integration simplifies protection of VMs by recognizing vCD constructs and provides granular recovery at the file-level so that users can choose whether to recover an entire vApp or a subset of VMs. With Rubrik Alta 4.2, we’re pleased to offer support for vCD with the following features: Support for vCD 8.10 and later Autodiscovery of vCD hierarchy SLA-based autoprotect at different levels of vCD hierarchy vCD instance vCD organizations Org VDC vApp Recovery flows Export and instant recovery File restore Network settings Self-service multi-tenancy for Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) Reporting per…

Recap: Rubrik’s First EMEA Partner Conference

One of the reasons why I joined Rubrik was the channel DNA in our company. At Rubrik, we believe that the channel is a key success factor for scaling and building something epic. Since day one, we’ve been 100% channel driven. With this strategy, we have been able to welcome the “best of the best” partners from around the world to our Rubrik channel family. It was with this mindset that we decided to hold our first EMEA Partner Conference, which took place in the beautiful city of Lisbon. From 20th to 22nd of September, we had an opportunity to meet with our partners and demonstrate our channel commitment. The theme of the conference was Full Throttle, which is exactly what all of our partners are doing every day with us in the field – we go together the extra mile! We invited our TOP 50 partners from all over EMEA to share the experience with peers from across regions, learn how to create even more momentum with Rubrik, hear from our executives first hand, and align with our vision and strategy. One goal of the conference was to ensure that all partners left the conference with a clear answer…

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…

Rubrik Helps RFA Deliver Archival-as-a-Service

Grigoriy Milis is the CTO at RFA (Richard Fleischman & Associates) and a 16-year IT veteran with more than 15 years of experience working in the financial industry. What differentiates RFA from other Managed Service Providers? We specialize in providing global data center services to the financial services industry, such as hedge funds and private equity funds. RFA is headquartered in New York City but we operate in New York, Connecticut, Boston, and London. We do a substantial amount of research in the market to stay on top of the latest technology trends that can help our clients. We’ve established a good track record of partnering up with startup companies to help them shape their product roadmap early on. Many of these companies have now become major players in IT markets like security. What drove the initial interest in Rubrik? We actually were very skeptical of evaluating a backup solution given the maturity of the backup market. Backup is an old problem and existing solutions, from decades ago and more recently, are pretty similar across the board. What caught my attention was Rubrik’s public cloud archival capabilities combined with global deduplication. It’s a huge differentiator for Rubrik since everybody integrates…

Building a Managed Service Business with Rubrik

Mike Leone, Sr. Network Engineer at Protected Trust, talks about building a reliable, secure managed service business with Rubrik (and the single bane of his existence). Tell me about what you do at Protected Trust. I’ve been at Protected Trust for the last 6 years. As a network engineer and system architect, I wear multiple hats, dealing with networks, servers, and systems. Protected Trust started out as an Exchange hosting company for high-security level clients and over the years has evolved into a full-service managed services shop (simple email encryption, Exchange hosting, secure cloud, and disaster recovery). Our job is to not only make IT easy for our users, but also make IT secure. Our clients don’t need to see the data center unless they want to. What led you to Rubrik? Protected Trust offers backups as part of its DR-as-a-Service offering. It’s been a challenge trying to find an effective solution to execute on our vision of protecting the full data lifecycle in a secure and reliable fashion. After data creation by our clients, it’s our job to process, archive, and dispose of it properly. We’ve tried multiple backup solutions and found them to be fairly complicated. As you…
