Rubrik Cloud Data Management supports Microsoft, Nutanix hypervisors

The Rubrik Cloud Data Management platform has been beefed up with upgrades that are in line with the data protection startup’s mission to be a full-scale cloud data management platform.

Rubrik’s Alta software now supports Microsoft Hyper-V and Nutanix AHV hypervisors, to go with previous support for VMware. Rubrik also integrated its software with Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) and added support for  instant recovery of physical SQL databases.

The Rubrik Cloud Data Management offering combines backup, recovery, replication, Google-like search, analytics, archival and copy data management under a single platform. Rubrik Alta protects workloads natively in Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and private clouds. The company aims to make its software a full-scale cloud data management platform with orchestration and reporting.

Alta provides application-consistent snapshots and restores in the cloud, a single control plane for data protection services for native cloud applications and the ability to replicate data between clouds.

Microsoft Hyper-V support allows the virtual machine deployments to perform flash-optimized, parallel ingest for accelerated snapshots along with incremental forever backup, scale-out deduplication and data compression. Point-in-time recovery, as well as search and restoration of files, is also supported.

“This support for Hyper-V is the same functionality we have with VMware,” Rubrik CTO and cofounder Arvind Nithrakashyap said.

Nine upgrades in less than two years

Version 4.0 of Rubrik Cloud Data Management marks the ninth product upgrade since the Palo Alto, Calif., company started shipping products in 2015.

RMAN support allows Rubrik Alta customers to manage the backups from that application via a policy engine.

“Customers can now orchestrate application data across multi-hypervisors and cloud environments,” wrote Biswaroop Palit, director of product management at Rubrik, in a company blog post.

Rubrik Cloud Data Management software has a CloudOn capability for application mobility across the data center and cloud environments for jobs such as Test/Dev and disaster recovery.

The vendor’s software runs on a backup appliance that uses SuperMicro servers with flash and spinning disk, and has capacities that range from 28 TB to 120 TB. It runs the proprietary, distributed Rubrik Cloud-Scale File system.

The company recently raised $180 million in Series D funding round, bringing its total funding to $292 million. Rubrik CEO Bipul Sinha said the company has a $1.3 billion valuation and he plans to go public in approximately two years.
