Welcome to Polaris: Courtesy of Slack and Serverless Compute

At Rubrik, one of the “good problems” we have is massive hyper-growth across teams, which means we have to find easy, scalable ways to communicate to each other. This was put to the test with our launch of the Polaris SaaS platform earlier this year, which led to the Sales Engineer team getting multiple “can I get access to the Polaris demo account?” requests every week. In order to create the new accounts, I simply log into Polaris and select the Invite Users link, and then a welcome email that includes all relevant login information would be sent to the team member requesting access. Even though the invite process was just a few clicks, as someone focused on all things DevOps and automation at Rubrik, a small part of me would shudder every time I had to manually repeat the invite process. That was until Chris Wahl decided to throw down the gauntlet. As a self-confessed Slack (our communication tool of choice) addict, I was immediately intrigued and got to work. I soon had a proof-of-concept Python script up and running that automated the new user invite process. But now what? How could I turn that basic script into a…

Introducing Radar: Faster Recovery from Ransomware

Ransomware is on the rise, and it’s only getting smarter. Recent research shows ransomware attacks grew more than 350% annually.* To defend against attacks, many companies typically focus on building a perimeter to prevent malware from ever entering their data center. However, as malware becomes increasingly sophisticated, it’s no longer a matter of if  but when an organization will be hit by an attack. While building a perimeter is essential, preventing every threat, every time, across every surface area is a near-impossible task. In fact, 71% of organizations were hit by ransomware after it successfully bypassed their detection and prevention measures.** Once an attack breaks through your defenses, bouncing back quickly is painful. For many IT professionals, this will bring to mind long nights spent trying to detect an attack, analyze the extent of the damage, and restore quickly from backup files. Resiliency should be stronger, and recovery should be faster. The most effective strategy for defending against ransomware is a defense in depth. This approach encompasses a holistic, multi-level ransomware response strategy that incorporates both prevention measures to keep threats out and strong resiliency to minimize downtime when an attack happens. Meet Radar: Recover Faster. Stay Smarter. We’ve been…

Data Explosion and Fragmentation: Why We Built Polaris

At Rubrik, we’re obsessed with innovation. We thrive on solving the biggest data management challenges in an unconventional and radically simple manner. Today, we’re continuing this mission by launching Rubrik Polaris, the industry’s first SaaS platform for a new class of data management applications. As we spoke with many customers across industries, it became clear that everyone was struggling with the same massive challenge – the fragmentation of data and applications across data center and cloud. As they implement cloud-first and multi-cloud approaches, their applications and data are increasingly decentralized across disparate locations. Coupled with explosive data growth, retaining control of all their data is nearly impossible. They need an organizing principle that centralizes data access, governance, analysis, and intelligence across data centers and clouds. We created Polaris to address this challenge through a SaaS platform that allows customers to organize, orchestrate, and secure applications and data across their entire environment. Polaris delivers a unified system of record that organizes all their business applications and data. Simplicity is in our DNA, so the platform includes native search, security, and workflow orchestration — all on a global content catalogue — to make data easily discoverable and usable. Staying true to the…
