PALO ALTO, Calif., December 19, 2018 — Rubrik, the Cloud Data Management Company, today announced that Digital River has reduced storage costs, automated NoSQL backup and recovery, and improved data protection with Rubrik Datos IO software. The global ecommerce technology provider is using Rubrik Datos IO to protect more than 60 NoSQL databases and tables across five different Cassandra database clusters.

Digital River provides ecommerce technology and services that help some of the largest brands sell their products direct-to-consumers online.

“We manage monetary transactions for large ecommerce enterprises. This data is critical for our customers and protecting it from loss is a priority for us,” said SP Naidu, Director of Data Technologies Engineering, Digital River. “With Rubrik Datos IO, we’re confident that if any of our applications built on Cassandra databases are corrupted, we’ll be able to recover from data loss using Rubrik Datos IO’s point-in-time recovery capabilities.”

Prior to Rubrik, the process of building and managing backups of Apache Cassandra keyspaces with different SLAs per application was a time-consuming and cumbersome process for the Digital River team. With Rubrik Datos IO, Digital River was able to deploy a fully automated backup and recovery solution for multiple Apache Cassandra databases that achieved protection from logical data corruption in a highly efficient and cost-effective way. It also enabled an application-centric approach to backup and recovery to address the need for granular database and table-level control for operational ease of use.

“More and more enterprises are migrating to modern non-relational databases like NoSQL to power mission-critical applications. As a result, they need a data management solution that is purpose-built for NoSQL databases to ensure that data is instantly available and protected,” said Tarun Thakur, General Manager, Rubrik Datos IO. “Rubrik Datos IO has enabled Digital River to modernize its data protection operations while also achieving significant performance improvements and cost savings.”

After deploying Rubrik’s Datos IO software, Digital River has been able to automate their NoSQL databases to improve their overall backup and recovery strategy in the event of data loss. Other benefits include:

  • 60% cost savings: Along with realizing the peace-of-mind with any-point-in-time (APIT), Digital River was able to achieve 60% reduction in secondary storage costs.
  • Increased ease of NoSQL protection: With Rubrik Datos IO, Digital River was able to protect 60 Cassandra keyspaces (databases) and column families (tables) across five clusters.
  • Zero performance impact on production database nodes: Digital River has been running multiple parallel database backup schedules with absolutely no performance impact on the source database nodes.
  • Automated and streaming recovery: Because Datos IO offers fully orchestrated recovery back to any Cassandra database cluster with any topology, Digital River can restore its production data into test clusters for application teams in a fully automated manner.
