Arezzo, Italy – November 3, 2016 — Rubrik, the world’s first Cloud Data Management Company, announced today that Clouditalia has deployed its comprehensive data management platform to deliver comprehensive, hybrid cloud data protection services in the mid-market. Clouditalia, a leading provider of cloud and telecommunications services, is offering Backup-as-a-Service, powered by Rubrik, enabling customers with limited IT resources and expertise to benefit from powerful data management capabilities on a self-serve basis.
As a leading cloud service provider in Italy, Clouditalia offers customers of all sizes access to enterprise class technologies via a service-based model. In Italy, 99.9 percent of organizations are mid-market or below (over 3.7m in total)¹, creating a market landscape where the ability of resource-constrained businesses to embrace the economic benefits of cloud is limited by technical complexity and time-consuming processes. Through its deployment of Rubrik technology, Clouditalia extends its competitive edge in the Italian market by eliminating the complexity and unreliability of legacy infrastructure for its clients with a simplified platform for automated data management across on-premises and the cloud.
“Our ability to offer extremely tailored services directed towards our customers’ needs is reliant upon finding and exploiting the most innovative technologies available in the market,” said Marco Iannucci, CEO at Clouditalia. “Rubrik is undoubtedly the right answer to all our needs. It is very easy to use and scale, and allows us to guarantee data instant recovery – something we couldn’t do before. Thanks to Rubrik, we can move more of our resources from data protection tasks to other key tasks within our datacentre.”
Although the introduction of Clouditalia’s new Rubrik-powered services is at an early stage, adoption among existing and new customers is progressing rapidly, and forecast revenues indicate significant net growth for the business. In the coming months, Clouditalia plans to implement Rubrik Edge, Rubrik’s software-only solution for remote and branch offices, to further extend its Backup-as-a-Service offerings for customers.
“We are excited to be a trusted partner to Clouditalia as they deliver next-generation cloud services to the Italian market,” said Bipul Sinha, co-founder and CEO, Rubrik. “Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management solution enables Clouditalia to efficiently deliver more dynamic capabilities within its cloud services portfolio. Supporting Clouditalia’s new self-service model by virtue of Rubrik’s extraordinary ease-of-use and public cloud scalability enables the company to address the entire Italian mid-market opportunity in a sustainable way.”
