Rubrik Signs with Promark Technology to Distribute Converged Data Management Platform
PALO ALTO, Calif. – May 10, 2016 –Rubrik, developer of the world’s first Converged Backup Solution, today announced it has entered into a distribution agreement with Promark Technology, Inc. (www.promarktech.com), a premier U.S.-focused value-added distributor (VAD) and wholly-owned subsidiary of Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM). Under the terms of the agreement, Promark will offer Rubrik’s portfolio of appliances that eliminate backup software by integrating deduplicated storage, catalog management, and data orchestration into a single, scale-out fabric.
“Rubrik’s radically new approach to data protection delivers game-changing simplicity, manageability and ROI,” said Bill Cordero, Head of Worldwide Channels at Rubrik. “We are pleased to work with Promark to bring this solution to their growing network of channel partners.”
The company’s r300 Series dramatically reduces TCO by replacing legacy architecture with a unified, scale-out, easy-to-use platform that distributes data, metadata and tasks across the cluster for linear scalability and performance. Rubrik’s 100 percent channel-focused business model is disrupting a $48 billion backup and recovery market. The two companies team up to enable the solution provider and managed service provider (MSP) community to pursue commercial and public sector opportunities.
“Rubrik complements Promark Technology’s emerging technology portfolio,” said Dale Foster, Executive Director and General Manager of Promark Technology. “We are thrilled to make an easy-to-use, easy-to-scale platform available as we help extend this to the channel.”
Rubrik provides the industry’s first scale-out Converged Data Management appliance, delivering automated backup, instant recovery, unlimited replication, and data archival at infinite scale. Rubrik is built by key engineers behind Google, Facebook, VMware, and Data Domain. Rubrik has been named to Gartner’s Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies, 2016.
