Rubrik is a data storage and management solution built on a distributed file system running across multiple scale-out storage nodes. Using a software-defined storage design with industry standard server hardware and commodity storage devices, Rubrik scales linearly, increasing capacity and performance as nodes are added. The Rubrik Cloud Data Management solution is sold as appliance nodes, as software-only appliance which can run on customer’s hardware, on hardware for various partners and is available to run in popular public cloud environments.
Rubrik combines data protection with archive, remote disaster recovery (DR) and copy data management (CDM) to create a secondary storage system that can replace multiple pieces of purpose-built infrastructure. Rubrik provides full data lifecycle management from ingest to archive and retirement, using metadata to provide global search capabilities, manage data versions and maintain capacity efficiency as the system scales.
Rubrik has a flash tier that is used to store metadata and to host instant restores. Rubrik leverages erasure coding, a configurable, parity-based schema that increases effective storage capacity while improving fault tolerance and data resiliency. The Rubrik Cloud-Scale File System provides content-aware, global deduplication and compression.
Rubrik stores an initial copy of each data object, then captures changes with snapshots that are journaled in an “incremental forever” process that enables near-real time recovery for backup and DR. With zero-byte clones, Rubrik creates multiple point-in-time copies of data sets to support other applications (e.g. test and development) efficiently. Rubrik Andes 5.2 enhanced cloning capabilities for database administrators, to accelerate development cycle times and recoveries and increase control over retention.
Rubrik replaces dedicated backup software and hardware storage targets, providing near-zero recovery time objectives (RTOs) and the ability to store backups long term. Asynchronous replication and DR are provided for off-site data recovery through the same policy engine that controls backup, replication and archival schedules. Rubrik offers a set of comprehensive APIs that can also migrate data sets to the public cloud.
