There are many solutions available in the backup and recovery space. While a lot of backup vendors have been building their reputation for many years – there is one relative newcomer, and it is called Rubrik.
Rubrik is a platform that works with data in the cloud, and it is used across many different verticals, from delivery to healthcare and government organizations. Rubrik’s solution is also used for backup and recovery purposes in data centers, allowing for easier scaling of the user’s cloud-based services with a high level of security and easy access to business data when needed. It is a relatively young company, too – having been founded in 2014.
Rubrik’s base is a platform that includes data backup, recovery, search, archive and a good number of other operations with data. Rubrik users can easily retrieve lost files, restore their applications and data in case of a failure or a disaster – and with little downtime. It’s all-in-one platform also means that users can access their applications and data (databases, VMs, singular files etc.) both through the cloud and from on-premise locations.
Rubrik is also known for its customizable dashboards and visual reports to provide for useful insights across a user’s cloud environment. There’s also an extensive policy engine to consider, which allows users to create or automate multiple policies, be it for backups, replication or archival, which saves a lot of time and resources.
