Secure-24 and Rubrik Partner to Tackle New Customer Markets

Secure-24, headquartered in Michigan, is a fast-growing managed service provider that delivers mission-critical application hosting, comprehensive managed IT, cloud, and security services to global enterprises. Sean Donaldson, CTO of Secure-24, discusses how their company leverages Rubrik’s robust APIs, high level of security, and cloud capabilities to expand to new markets, including Healthcare and hybrid cloud customers. Tell me about Secure-24’s IT environment and product offerings. At Secure-24, we maintain a highly-virtualized data environment, managing over tens of thousands of VMs globally. We offer a comprehensive business solution to enterprises seeking IT transformation, primarily targeting larger organizations ranging from $1B to $10B in revenue. Our goal is to provide not only backup-as-a-service to our customers, but a service-oriented experience across the entire IT cycle. We focus on running mission critical applications with a high degree of reliance on security, compliance, and governance. What frustrations did you experience with your previous solution? With our legacy backup solution, the recovery process was very manual and required the involvement of multiple teams. RTOs were lengthy, and it was cumbersome to use different tools and procedures for our physical and virtual environments. In particular, we encountered challenges with backing up large VMs in our environment.…

Rubrik Multi-tenancy: Secure Data Isolation for a True Cloud Computing Era

Multi-tenancy is one of the cornerstones of a cloud data management platform. It enables you to support multiple customers (commonly referred to as ‘tenants’) on a single platform. Pooling resources results in lower costs, greater efficiencies, and faster innovation for both tenants and service providers. Secure data and metadata isolation is required in multi-tenant environments. Traditionally, data isolation required for multi-tenant environments is established as physical boundaries. The storage domain, including its compute resources, is divided into multiple partitions, and role-based access control is applied on those partitions, as shown above. Each tenant is given a rigid partition isolated from others using physical boundaries. The resources are often over-provisioned to meet tenant demand during peak usage. Thus, resources are often underutilized and typically wasted. The security principals (user and service accounts) need to be reserved for each partition. Rubrik brings an innovative cloud-based framework for secure data and metadata isolation. This is designed to give the best of both worlds; security benefits of physical boundaries and economic advantages of a true cloud computing model. It is made possible by virtualizing all resources so that tenants can share allocated resources in a secure, isolated fashion, as pictured above. Let’s take a…

For CIOs, Focus on the Service Experience is Paramount

Four years ago, I sat down with Frank Slootman, now Former CEO of ServiceNow and Data Domain, and shared my idea of re-architecting backup and recovery from the ground up to manage the data explosion in a cloudy world. Backup and recovery was overdue for a technology refresh. There was opportunity to bring the power of public clouds to backup, expand the role of backup data into a business asset for test/dev and analytics, and replace the traditional cumbersome architecture and user experience with one that was radically simple and infinitely scalable. Fast forward to ten product releases and 600+ employees, Frank and I caught up on why he invested in Rubrik and how our vision resonated with him. During the discussion, we traded notes on where IT is headed and what’s top of mind for CIOs. Four out of the five business days, I’m usually found on the road, meeting with customers around the world across all industries. After countless trips, I have noticed a clear trend in my discussions with CIOs – the CIO of today is starkly different from the CIO of yesterday. They are business strategists and spend their time figuring how best to leverage technology…
