MADRID, Spain and PALO ALTO, Calif., February 15, 2018 – Rubrik, the Cloud Data Management Company, today announced that it has been chosen by HM Hospitales, a Spanish hospital group, to become its unified data management platform for backup, recovery, and archival across all locations.

HM Hospitales is a private hospital group that provides comprehensive health care services in addition to research, continuing education and technological innovation. It currently has more than 4,000 professionals among its 14 hospitals, three comprehensive centers specializing in Oncology, Cardiology and Neuroscience, and 21 polyclinics.

Due to the increasing complexity and rising costs being imposed by its legacy backup solution, HM Hospitales began looking for a modern and easy-to-use data management solution to support its network of hospitals, patients and 400 virtual machines.

After deploying Rubrik, HM Hospitales was able to:

  • Achieve 96% management time savings, reducing the daily time spent on managing backup to 20 minutes from eight hours.
  • Meet strict compliance requirements, such as Ley Orgánica de Protección de Datos (LOPD), by using service-level agreement (SLA) policies and backing up to network-attached storage (NAS).
  • Get up and running in weeks, in stark contrast to the years that HM Hospitales’ legacy solution took to deploy.
  • Realize immediate cost savings and a 33% reduction in total cost of ownership (TCO) over the next five years.
  • Due to the successful initial implementation, HM Hospitals plans to expand its Rubrik deployment into new centers.
