Rubrik Datos IO 3.0 to provide simplicity, scale, cloud data mobility for enterprise NoSQL data protection

Rubrik announced Rubrik Datos IO 3.0, codenamed Cygnus, latest release of its data protection platform for NoSQL databases. Enterprises are increasingly relying on born-in-the-cloud applications to run their businesses and serve their customers.

Datos IO 3.0 delivers enterprise-grade backup and recovery to this new genre of massive cloud-based NoSQL applications via fast performance, scalability across hundreds of nodes and multiple clouds, and consumer-like simplicity, the company announced Wednesday.

NoSQL databases have become mainstream, requiring enterprises to rely on MongoDB and Cassandra / DataStax to power some of their most prominent customer-facing applications. IDC has described this transition as an “ongoing evolution” for NoSQL databases as enterprise use cases require scale and new capabilities. This underscores the need for proven, scalable data protection purpose-built to serve NoSQL workloads.

DevOps and database administration teams understand the effort required to manage and protect growing, large-scale distributed systems. Datos IO 3.0 introduces significant updates designed for those enterprise admins, including ultralight NoSQL Service Managers, streaming recovery for fast RTOs, express recovery for full disaster recovery scenarios, and database-level recovery for both MongoDB and Cassandra.

The result is a simplified user experience, from installation to recovery, built to scale with the growing demand of enterprise NoSQL application environments.

Rubrik Datos IO offers purpose-built data protection for MongoDB, delivering enterprise-grade backup and recovery performance for instances of all sizes and schemas.

Datos IO 3.0 introduces a new, multi-node scale-out architecture, the ability to seamlessly recover to and from changing database cluster topologies, and performance improvements for MongoDB backup and recovery, particularly those with high-change rate and sharded clusters spread across dozens or hundreds of nodes.

“With global brands like Samsung, Adobe, Avast and Lenovo relying on our PaaS ecommerce platform, we can’t risk any application downtime,” said SP Naidu, Director, Data Technologies Engineering, Digital River. “With Rubrik Datos IO, we’re confident that if any of our applications built on Cassandra databases are corrupted, we’ll be able to recover from data loss using Datos IO’s point-in-time recovery capabilities. We’ve also truly enjoyed working with the Rubrik Datos IO team; their product roadmap, willingness to partner and collaborate with us makes them stand out.”

“The market has spoken, and NoSQL databases now power the fastest-growing, mission-critical applications in the enterprise,” said Tarun Thakur, general manager, Rubrik Datos IO. “With Rubrik Datos IO 3.0, we are re-affirming our leadership in addressing the data management challenges for NoSQL databases. Our engineering team has built Datos IO 3.0 to address the data protection uses cases for the world’s most popular NoSQL databases running at massive scale, answering the call for effective data protection for enterprise production applications.”

Just as enterprises are standardizing new development on the most popular NoSQL databases, they increasingly view the hybrid cloud model as their standard for infrastructure. Datos IO 3.0 offers enterprises the option to run in Azure or back up to Azure, completing support for the three largest public cloud providers (AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud) along with support for Oracle Cloud. This empowers IT teams to orchestrate and move data across the data center and between multiple clouds.

To help enable companies pursuing digital transformation efforts built on container-based architectures, Datos IO 3.0 also introduces the ability to manage and protect NoSQL databases deployed as Docker containers.

“Cloud storage and NoSQL databases represent the future for enterprise IT, and we are excited to help Microsoft and Rubrik customers realize that future,” said Tad Brockway, Head of Product, Microsoft Azure Storage. “We believe Microsoft Azure Storage is the ideal environment for organizations looking to protect NoSQL data using Rubrik Datos IO.”

Gartner highlights that the modern database management systems (DBMS and OSDBMS) market is about $2.6 billion in spending and growing 50% year over year in adoption.  This type of market analysis coupled with the customer demand that we see guided the vision of Cygnus and its support for growing MongoDB workloads.

High change rates, database node counts, and table counts all tax data protection requirements and demand a scalable underlying architecture to meet these growing environments. One of the most exciting capabilities of Cygnus is a new multi-node, scale-out architecture for MongoDB backup and recovery to address the rapidly growing data sets of MongoDB deployments we’re seeing world wide. Cygnus also brings streaming recovery to accelerate restore times in large, distributed environments. This provides further resiliency from network, storage, and node failures. It also powers Datos IO’s other recovery features, including orchestrated recovery, any point-in-time (APIT) recovery, queryable recovery, and advanced capabilities such as masking and undersampling. In the same vein, we’re introducing a brand new express recovery feature so that organizations can address disaster recovery (DR) scenarios and easily meet aggressive RTOs even when working with extremely large data sets.
