Palo Alto, CA – October 20, 2016 – Rubrik, the Cloud Data Management company, today announced that Rubrik and its customer Totaljobs Group, earned Best of VMworld Europe 2016 in the Data Protection Category.

Winning customer case studies were evaluated by a panel of independent judges based upon innovation, improvement in manageability, business efficiency, best practices and measurable impact.  Computer Weekly and TechTarget sponsored the contest.

“We are excited to earn Best of VMworld in Barcelona with our customer Totaljobs Group,” said Karl Driesen, Head of EMEA Sales. “Our fast growth in EMEA is based upon delivering real value for customers like Totaljobs Group, by eliminating their complex infrastructure, reducing their time spent managing data, and helping them exploit cloud economics.”

“[Totaljobs Group] opted for Rubrik’s technology, allowing it to ditch tape-based backup in favour of the public cloud, resulting in lower costs, faster recovery times and a better overall end-user experience,” noted Computer Weekly.  “This project is a great example of how addressing the limitations of the underlying infrastructure can support any business in the quest to grow and scale.”

With Rubrik, organizations shed complex, legacy solutions for a simplified data management fabric that recovers, manages and secures data across public and private clouds. Rubrik’s solution spans backup and recovery, disaster recovery, archiving and compliance, search, analytics, and copy data management.

In just five quarters since introducing its product, over 100 customers from mid- to large enterprises have purchased Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management solution, including multiple Fortune 500 customers. European customers include Totaljobs Group, Clouditalia, Assured DP and other commercial and government entities. Forbes recently announced Rubrik as one of 2016’s Next Billion Dollar Startups and Wealthfront named the company as one of 2017’s Career Launching Companies.

This past August, Rubrik announced the Early Access Program for Rubrik Firefly, which supports physical workloads (Microsoft SQL, Physical Linux) and extends to edge environments (remote and branch offices).

Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management solution is globally available through the Company’s 200+ solution partners.
