Rubrik Achieves Advanced Tier Technology Partner Status in AWS Partner NetworkSeptember 1, 2017
Rubrik, the Cloud Data Management company, today announced it has been named an Advanced tier Technology Partner in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN). Rubrik is a leader in defining the large, emerging market for Cloud Data Management, delivering a solution that allows companies to recover, manage, and secure data across public clouds and on-premises environments.
For cloud-native applications, Rubrik orchestrates all critical data management functions — including backup, recovery, replication, archival, copy data management, search and analytics. As an Advanced tier Technology Partner in the APN, Rubrik demonstrates expertise in data management and disaster recovery alongside the company’s commitment to deep integration with AWS, a key cloud platform for many customers. Technology Partners in the APN provide software solutions that are either hosted on or integrated with AWS.
"Rubrik customers running on AWS can instantly access data within hybrid environments to deliver best-in-class customer experiences and simplify operations," said Ranajit Nevatia, vice president, business development and alliances, Rubrik. "We are honored to be an Advanced tier Technology Partner in the AWS APN Network after only three and a half years in business. This recognition demonstrates our team’s technical knowledge and deep understanding of AWS."
For mid-market and large enterprises, Rubrik Cloud Data Management dramatically simplifies data management to enable new data services anytime, anywhere. In June 2017, Rubrik launched its 4.0 Alta product, the company’s ninth and most significant release to date. Alta rounds out support for all major enterprise environments and applications: hypervisors including VMware, Hyper-V, Nutanix AHV; physical platforms and applications including Linux, Windows, NAS, Oracle and SQL; and archive options including AWS, Azure, NFS, object stores and tape. For application mobility or disaster recovery, Alta introduced CloudOn intelligent instantiation across data centers and clouds. CloudOn delivers on-demand app mobility, meaning users can move applications running on-premises on the fly to AWS for disaster recovery, test/dev, or analytics scenarios.
"Rubrik’s support of Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) helps us ease into cloud services at a cost curve that we’re comfortable with," said Terry Young, senior network and systems administrator, Castilleja School. "In addition, we’re saving on the amount of time to manage tape, and we’re providing an insurance policy by having our data reside in another part of the country in case we were hit by a disaster."
"One of the key reasons we chose Rubrik was because the AWS integration performs seamlessly. The performance and simplicity of Rubrik’s cloud connectivity is excellent," said Shane Hadden, senior network engineer, Fujirebio.
"We use public cloud for instant archive of mission-critical data, long-term archival, and to extend on-site storage capacity. Before Rubrik, we would have tapes exported offsite to Iron Mountain on a weekly basis. Rubrik removes the cost and pain of Iron Mountain pickups," adds Tim Gable, Network Systems Manager, Fujirebio.
Gartner recently positioned Rubrik in the "Visionaries" quadrant of its 2017 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions. As the only new vendor to enter the Magic Quadrant since 2014, this positioning validates Rubrik’s strategy for delivering simplicity to the enterprise.
