Rubrik enters AWS and Microsoft Azure cloud families with ‘monumental release’

Company’s push on hybrid cloud comes as bookings approach $100m in annual run rate in six quarters of selling.

Cloud data management company Rubrik has extended its software fabric to deliver data protection for cloud-native applications running in AWS and Microsoft Azure.

The Rubrik cloud data management platform – also named Rubrik – orchestrates critical data management functions, including backup and recovery, replication and disaster recovery, archival, copy data management, search, and analytics.

As the company extends the platform into AWS and Azure, Rubrik said that enterprises will now be able to “get up and running in minutes” by deploying Rubrik as a software instance on AWS and Azure.

Users will also be able to avoid cloud vendor lock-in by migrating data from public cloud to public cloud to optimise application service quality.

Furthermore, the company’s expansion enables those using the service to “start small and scale-out by growing the Rubrik cluster in lock-step with cloud data growth”.

Bipul Sinha, co-founder and CEO, Rubrik, said: “To successfully operate in a multi-cloud world, enterprises require a backup and data management solution that frees their data from the underlying infrastructure. Rubrik encapsulates all data with rich services—policy, security, automation, access control, compliance, and search—to achieve ultimate workload and data portability across any environment.

“With this monumental release, enterprises can instantly access data within a hybrid cloud environment to deliver best-in-class customer experiences, streamline operations, and prepare for future innovations.”
