Rubrik announces Andes 5.0 release for enterprises to protect, automate, govern applications and data across hybrid clouds

Rubrik announced the Andes 5.0 release of its Cloud Data Management platform, delivering a single software to protect, automate, and govern applications and data across datacenters and clouds. Rubrik Andes, the company’s fourteenth and most expansive release, accelerates enterprise digital transformation with innovation for mission-critical applications, including Oracle and SAP HANA business data platform, and cloud-native applications, including Microsoft Office 365 and NoSQL databases.

As enterprises drive digital transformation initiatives, they grapple with the fragmentation of business applications and data across multiple datacenters and clouds while adhering to ever more stringent security requirements.

To successfully deliver business outcomes, enterprises require a data management solution that can protect applications across data centers and clouds, automate self-service at scale, and eliminate operational complexity, while maintaining governance, compliance, and security against cyber threats such as ransomware.

Rubrik Andes delivers instant access, cloud mobility, and self-service automation to mission-critical applications and data. Rubrik Andes debuts Live Mount for Oracle databases, providing instant recovery and clones to maximize business uptime and accelerate application development. Rubrik delivers its trademark operational simplicity via auto-discovery and policy-driven automation for the largest Oracle database environments.

Rubrik Cloud Data Management 5.0 has certified integration with SAP HANA®. Database administrators can use native SAP tools, such as SAP HANA cockpit and SAP HANA studio, to quickly provide point-in-time recoveries with intelligent log management as well as to defend against Ransomware through data immutability.

Healthcare providers facing HIPAA compliance and cyber risk can leverage Rubrik’s hallmark policy-driven automation and Ransomware immutability to easily protect and recover Epic Electronic Health Records (EHR) environments built on InterSystems Caché databases.

Rubrik Andes introduces NAS Direct Archive to efficiently and securely manage massive unstructured datasets across datacenter and cloud storage systems while delivering global search for instant and granular data discovery. Rubrik Andes provides Windows bare metal recovery, including full system migration to any hypervisor or cloud instance.

“Legacy solutions are not built for digital-minded enterprises to meet compliance and protect against security attacks,” said Rubrik Co-Founder and CTO, Arvind Nithrakashyap. “Rubrik’s Andes 5.0 release provides a single software platform to protect and organize business critical information for implementing governance, meeting compliance, and recovering from today’s intensifying security threats. With Rubrik Andes, enterprises achieve business uptime, accelerate development, and leverage the cloud for all mission-critical and next-gen applications – all foundational to digital transformation.”

Rubrik Andes deepens support for cloud-native and next-gen applications, building upon its cloud-native application protection and support of all major public clouds.

Rubrik orchestrates policy-based protection of Office 365 via its Polaris SaaS platform, offering enhanced simplicity and performance for search and restore operations. Enterprises harness the elasticity of a cloud-native platform to auto-scale protection in line with their Office 365 needs and control where backup data is stored in the cloud.

Rubrik Andes now works with Rubrik Datos IO to protect and manage NoSQL databases such as MongoDB and Cassandra, allowing DevOps and database administrators to accelerate innovation for customer-facing applications.

Rubrik Andes introduces Elastic App Service to provide a high performance and secure data service for any application, including Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SAP HANA, MongoDB, and Cassandra. Database administrators can continue using their preferred management tools while using Rubrik’s automated data lifecycle management and data immutability to achieve greater network and storage efficiencies while protecting against cyber attacks such as Ransomware.

Rubrik Andes delivers significant performance increases in the cloud with incremental-forever cloud archival for faster recoveries and lower costs. By using Rubrik’s CloudOn services, enterprises can deliver cloud instantiations of sizable virtual machines in minutes for disaster recovery or test/dev. Rubrik also introduced Rubrik Accelerator for Microsoft Azure, a new offering purpose-built for Azure to provide enterprise data protection and application mobility across datacenters to Microsoft Azure.

“ASL Airlines switched to Rubrik for its ease of use, cloud mobility, remote office orchestration with Edge, and integration with Oracle,” said Fabrice De Biasio, Chief Group Information Officer at ASL Airlines. “We’ve already benefited from three times faster restores and four times administrative time savings. I expect Andes’ expanded offerings — particularly the addition of cloud-native Microsoft Office 365 support — to bring even greater value to our business as we embrace cloud and digital transformation.”

“Before Rubrik, backing up NAS data was a nightmare, and we were limited by our previous solution,” said Brandon Morris, System Administrator at City of Sioux Falls. “Thanks to NAS Direct Archive, we can now mobilize hundreds to billions of files to our destination of choice, unlocking new cloud options and huge cost savings for my team. Combined with new data management applications like Radar, Rubrik will help us drive strategic business objectives, such as fortifying our defense against Ransomware and other cyber threats.”

“With Rubrik’s certified support for SAP HANA in the 5.0 release, we can now protect all mission-critical applications with the same ease and reliability that we have come to expect from Rubrik,” said Toby Tapp, Network Administrator at The Heritage Group.

“One of the biggest advantages with Rubrik over legacy solutions is its policy-based management for Oracle RMAN workloads. As a result, we spend 83% less time on managing our Oracle databases today,” said Edward Poll, Head of IT Infrastructure at Cranfield University. “I’m thrilled to see Rubrik offer deeper Oracle support in Andes 5.0 with even simpler management and instant recovery for our mission-critical databases – all while providing greater flexibility and control for our DBAs, developers, and backup admins.”
