Palo Alto based cloud data management firm Rubrik has launched the Rubrik Accelerator for Microsoft Azure to offer enterprise customers a single solution to protect and manage data from on-premises to Microsoft Azure.

Rubrik Accelerator for Azure adds to the company’s existing offering for Microsoft customers, which features automated data protection for Microsoft Hyper-V, support for physical Windows and instant database recoveries with SQL Live Mount.

Gartner predicts cloud computing and services will be a US$300 billion business by 2021. Rubrik accelerates the cloud journey with a simple, unified solution for data protection and application mobility across data center to Azure.

“Every enterprise customer I speak with has cloud ambitions. However, many organizations are held back by complex legacy data management solutions that keep the cloud migration process out of reach,” said Mike Tornincasa, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Sales at Rubrik.

“The Rubrik Accelerator for Microsoft Azure makes it easy for enterprises to move to a hybrid cloud model, and in turn, innovate faster, be more productive and unlock cost-savings. Additionally, Rubrik offers customers the ability to manage their entire Microsoft investment on one platform, across on-premises and public cloud environments.”

“Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management platform allows customers to take full advantage of the security, durability, global availability, and scale of Microsoft Azure,” said Tad Brockway, General Manager, Azure Storage, and Azure Stack at Microsoft Corp.

The Rubrik Accelerator for Microsoft Azure offers enterprises:

  • A fast-track to Azure success: Rubrik helps customers easily on-ramp to Azure by providing a single solution to protect and manage data across all environments. Rubrik customers automate archival to Azure for cost-effective long-term retention. As they advance in their cloud journey, they can quickly spin up applications in Azure for test/dev.
  • Unprecedented management simplicity: Customers engage with the same easy-to-use Rubrik interface to manage applications on-premises, at the edge, and in the cloud. Users automate backup, recovery, and archival schedules via one SLA policy engine with just a few clicks, reducing daily management times from hours to minutes.
  • Faster recovery with SQL Live Mount and global search: Customers can recover in minutes with Rubrik’s popular Live Mount solution for SQL, and locate files instantly with predictive global search that spans on-premises and cloud, including files, folders, filesets, virtual machine (VM), and database instances.
  • Free CloudOn and Azure Credits: To reduce the risk of cloud migration, new users of Rubrik Accelerator for Microsoft Azure will receive 6 months of free Azure from Microsoft and 12 months of free CloudOn from Rubrik.

“At CDW, we specialize in helping our customers build cloud deployment strategies across Azure migrations, IaaS and cloud planning services engagements,” said Darin Mock, Director of Software Sales, CDW.

“We are seeing excitement within our software team stemming from partners creating software solutions together to solve complex customer business problems. Rubrik and Microsoft in particular, are successfully collaborating and we are very excited about the introduction of the Rubrik Accelerator for Microsoft Azure. I’m confident it will help our customers with their cloud journey.”
