LKAB Avoids Millions in Downtime & Drives Operational Efficiency with Rubrik

Rubrik is honored to have received the Best Data Security and Data Protection award at VMworld 2019, marking our eighth VMworld award in just four years. This win was in partnership with our customer LKAB, a leading Swedish mining company, and recognizes the automation, increased efficiency, and significant business value they achieved with Rubrik Edge. Winners of the award were selected “based on the business benefits, levels of innovation and best practice their projects demonstrated.” Enabling our customers to tackle the toughest enterprise data management challenges and unlock new value from their data is what drives us. That’s why, in celebration of our Best of VMworld award, I want to share LKAB’s story and the business benefits they’ve realized by deploying Rubrik.  Modern Data Management for Modern Operations LKAB is a state-owned mining company that produced 26.9 Mt of iron ore products in 2018 with ambitious plans to increase production by 5% per year through 2021. Due to the modern technology and high cost of running their mines, IT is a crucial component of their operations and supports business-critical applications, as well as their entire global employee base.  As Robert Pohjanen, IT Architect at LKAB, explains, “Our small IT department…

In the Eye of the Beholder: Rubrik Alta 4.2

In any new release, there are the major features–the items you mention when asked for a 30-second version of “what’s new.” Rubrik Alta 4.2 is no exception, and we’ve talked a lot about the high-level themes and larger features. Perhaps it’s my IT Operations background, but while I get excited about the banner features, I also find the “smaller” items fascinating. I still remember reading release notes as a customer and seeing a feature or feature improvement that, while minor to many, was hugely impactful and an indication of development maturity. If developer cycles aren’t also put towards improvement to existing features or “minor additions,” that’s not healthy and is especially challenging for current customers. Given that, I’d like to take a few minutes to focus on a few less notable, but still important, 4.2 features. Let’s call them “In the Eye of the Beholder” features. Edge on AHV & Hyper-V I’ve spent a lot of time with customers who have extensive Remote Office / Branch Office (ROBO) architectures. Backup and recovery in these environments can be painful–lack of physical space, tape rotation, budget challenges, performance, and more. While Rubrik in the data center traditionally has a 3 or 4 node minimum,…

Since we support eight locations across three countries, it is imperative that we have visibility into all our data and speed of recovery to ensure operational continuity across all our environments. What challenges were you facing with your previous solution? The biggest problem we faced was our lack of a data management solution for our remote environments. We have over seven remote offices and were previously relying on tape for backups. This manual process was complex, time-consuming, and…

How has your industry evolved in the last few years, and what is the role of IT? 15 years ago, when I entered this sector, daily business was done with fax and telephone. Today, everything is IT driven. If an order goes in today and goods have to be delivered tomorrow morning, our IT has to be faster and more reliable. This is especially important for our industry because logistic companies highly benefit from being dynamic. Virtual data centers help us keep up with this need. All our mission-critical data is hosted on our virtualized platform. What were your challenges with backup? With our previous solution, we spent a lot of time just managing our backups.
