Role-Based Access Control Enhancements and Best Practices

The Rubrik Andes 5.2 release, now Generally Available, introduced a variety of capabilities to advance enterprise security, compliance, and resilience. One of our most significant enhancements is with our Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) capability, which is designed to help maximize operational efficiency, safeguard against unauthorized access, reduce admin and IT support work, and make it easier to meet audit requirements. Least privilege—the practice of assigning each user the precise amount of privileges to perform their jobs and nothing more—is one of the most fundamental security principles. With our new RBAC capabilities, you can now enforce least privilege and separation of duties policies and achieve all of the above benefits. What is new for RBAC? Andes 5.2 introduces the following three RBAC roles:  Custom Role  Each organization has different requirements and operational processes. Oftentimes, the pre-defined build-in roles won’t be specific enough. They either grant too few or too many privileges that each user needs to undertake. To resolve this problem, Andes 5.2 allows you to create custom roles that grant the precise privileges based on your users’ responsibilities at a more fine-grained level.   Infrastructure Administrator Role  This role is designed for IT personas who are responsible for setting up the…

Rubrik -  - How Rubrik Andes 5.2 Empowers DBAs With Flexible Recovery Options


How Rubrik Andes 5.2 Empowers DBAs With Flexible Recovery Options

Databases are at the heart of the data management strategy for all enterprises. This is because critical applications are built and hosted on databases—both relational and non-relational—so any downtime on databases has a direct impact on the company’s revenue. At Rubrik, we are committed to delivering value to our customers by simplifying their data management strategies across all environments. That’s why Rubrik Andes 5.2, our latest product release, delivers multiple enhancements and capabilities for Oracle databases that provide even more power and flexibility to DBAs. Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management (CDM) platform delivers enterprise-grade protection and DevOps-centric automation for Oracle databases, enabling customers to automatically backup their Oracle database workloads and leverage flexible recovery options in the event of database failure. This allows DBAs to devote their precious time to other demanding tasks without worrying about database backups or relinquishing restore control.  Rubrik’s data management solution for Oracle is built around recovery scenarios that DBAs perform on a day-to-day basis.  Clone Cloning is the most obvious use case for DBAs in terms of using the existing database backups. DBAs frequently clone critical production data and create clones that are used for testing and developing new applications. The Clone option (originally known…
Rubrik -  - Flexible Data Retention Using Enhanced SLA Domains


Flexible Data Retention Using Enhanced SLA Domains

With Rubrik Andes 5.2, we are thrilled to announce two substantive advancements to SLA Domains that ensure IT and compliance are in harmony throughout the data lifecycle: flexible data retention and legal hold. SLA Domains are the fundamental building block of the Rubrik Cloud Data Management platform and empower customers to automate the entire data lifecycle, including backup, replication, archival, and continuous data protection. Flexible Data Retention Backup administrators typically use pre-defined SLA retention policies for different object types that may vary depending on the  workload and if the objects need to be archived or replicated. Oftentimes, admins  need to change the retention policies of certain object types to meet new requirements from different lines of business, optimize storage consumption of servers that are decommissioned, or discontinue archival and replication of certain objects. When speaking with our customers, many stressed the importance of being  able to change retention policies without impacting the retention of existing snapshots. To address these needs, Rubrik Andes 5.2 provides the flexibility to avoid applying changes to existing snapshots anytime an SLA is edited or re-assigned.  Here’s a rundown of how flexible data retention works: The calendar view across all objects also provides granular visibility into…

Have you ever wanted to be more resilient?  Rubrik Andes 5.2 introduces a variety of capabilities and enhancements designed to bring speed and performance for modern IT environments. One of the biggest additions to the Rubrik Cloud Data Management (CDM) platform is enhanced VMware vSphere protection to make your backup performance faster, raise the resiliency of your backup and restore operations, and obtain more flexibility with file restores and VMware Tools. VMware Multi-Node Data Streaming When speaking with our customers, we discovered that many dealt with the challenge of managing very large VMs, especially during the initial ingest. With Rubrik Andes 5.2, we are thrilled to introduce a game-changing way of dealing with multiple-terabytes VMs.  Rubrik’s new VMware multi-node data streaming takes an innovative approach that drastically improves backup speed. To achieve this, Rubrik  breaks down a large VMDK into smaller pieces called shards and processes them in parallel on multiple Rubrik nodes. The system does everything automatically and can improve backup speed by up to 5x for large multi-terabyte VMs. To make sure that your ESXi hosts can handle that, you can always adjust the maximum number of concurrent jobs…
