Better NAS Backup RPO with Changelist Snapshots

Although NDMP has long been the de facto approach for protecting NAS data, some limitations have led Rubrik to choose a different approach from day 1, leveraging NFS and SMB instead.  To ensure that customers are able to reliably protect their data and recover quickly from data corruption and data loss, Rubrik takes an approach that obviates the need for complex NDMP implementations. Three-phase Approach NAS protection with Rubrik utilizes a three-phase approach. Each phase is optimized using modern techniques such as snapshot API integration, data partitioning, and parallel file streaming. The Rubrik three-phase approach for NAS protection includes: Scan: Rubrik identifies which files need to be protected for full or incremental backups. Fetch: Rubrik takes the list of files from the Scan phase and reads them over the NAS protocol. Copy: Rubrik compresses, encrypts, and writes the data to either the Rubrik cluster or, using NAS Direct Archive, to an archive location on-premises or in the cloud. NAS Data Scan File scanning has historically been the biggest bottleneck for NAS backup performance. This challenge has only grown as the amount of data has grown. Previous approaches, such as image-level backups, have increased backup performance by avoiding file scanning altogether.…

Top 3 Data Management Trends at NetApp Insight

Last week, Rubrik was thrilled to be a sapphire sponsor at  the NetApp Insight Conference, where we had the opportunity to speak firsthand with our customers, give a sneak peek of our upcoming NetApp SnapDiff integration, and highlight our strategic partnership with NetApp. Attending Insight also provided significant, well, insights into what’s top of mind for IT organizations and the biggest challenges enterprises face with data protection. To help navigate the sea of information, we’ve put together a list of the biggest trends and observations from Insight:  1. Everyone is thinking about multi-cloud. Data is everywhere. As data mobility becomes a reality, so does the concept of data in multiple clouds. This multi-cloud operations paradigm leads to complex management and potential compliance violations. At Insight, it became clear when speaking to customers that they need simplification of infrastructure and operations across all environments, especially as data becomes increasingly fragmented. This strategy complements Rubrik’s founding vision to simplify data management and track and store data where it makes the most sense. 2. Customers are looking for modern data protection and control. Many IT orgs today are faced with the problem of clunky, legacy data protection systems with little ROI. On top…

Expanding our Technology Solutions with Microsoft, NetApp, and VMware

At Rubrik, we build to make our customers’ work easier across their entire infrastructure, especially as they move to hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Customer feedback drives our product roadmap, and we heavily invest in our partners to deliver critical solutions that solve the biggest enterprise data management challenges.  We’re always looking for new ways to innovate and expand our partner ecosystem and are thrilled to introduce three upcoming solutions! Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come: Protecting Azure NetApp Files with Rubrik Unstructured data brings about new data management challenges. In many large enterprises, the size of unstructured data is in double or even triple-digit petabytes and continues to grow exponentially. The sheer volume of data and number of files, which can run into the billions, makes it difficult for backup software to identify which files to protect, as the entire file system needs to be examined for changes since the last backup. This can result in horribly slow backups, failed backup jobs, and unfavorable resource consumption. To solve these challenges, we recently introduced Rubrik and NetApp StorageGRID, which enables users to automate data lifecycle management at cloud scale. We also introduced our first-to-market integration with SnapDiff APIs (expected…

Rubrik + NetApp: Automate Data Lifecycle Management at Cloud Scale

In the 20+ years I’ve been working in tech, one of the things that stands out at Rubrik is its customer and partner-centric approach to building solutions. Here, customer feedback helps drive our roadmap, and we know our partners are critical for delivering our solutions. We’re always looking for ways to expand our ecosystem, which is why we’re thrilled about our new strategic alliance partner, NetApp. Today, we’re kicking off our partnership with Rubrik Cloud Data Management for NetApp StorageGRID, which enables enterprises to optimize data lifecycle management on cloud-scale architectures. NetApp StorageGRID is well-known throughout the industry, and just like Rubrik, the secret sauce is their policy engine. NetApp StorageGRID is a software-defined object storage solution that supports industry-standard object APIs such as the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) API. Users can create multiple service levels with metadata-driven object lifecycle policies, optimizing durability, protection, performance, cost, and location across multiple geographies. As requirements change, users can adjust policies and realign their data landscape. With Rubrik and NetApp StorageGRID, you can now automate data lifecycle management through Rubrik’s simple control plane while using StorageGRID as a cloud-scale object-based archive target. Both Rubrik and StorageGRID index file metadata to enable…
