Save on Backup Storage: Send Data from Rubrik to Cloudian

Scale-Out S3 Storage for Future-Proof Data Protection

Rubrik allows IT to easily automate backup, replication, and archive to Cloudian HyperStore by using its policy-based engine. No additional software installation or plugins are needed to connect Rubrik with Cloudian. Rubrik sends deduplicated data to Cloudian, reducing storage costs. If an offsite copy is required for DR, use Cloudian’s policy-based replication to AWS, Google, and Microsoft clouds. Cloudian connects directly to all three, with no middleware or additional software.

Available as an appliance or as software, Cloudian HyperStore is a simple, scalable, and cost-effective S3-based storage target for Rubrik backup. Cloudian disk-based storage provides an on-prem target for your backup data to accelerate RTO and RPO. At up to 70% less cost than public cloud, and with greater performance—data restore in seconds to minutes, not hours to days—Cloudian completes your Rubrik solution.


  • Proven, plug-and-play, exabyte-scalable Rubrik backup target
  • Costs under $.01 per GB per month, including support
  • Policy-based tiering to AWS, Google, Microsoft
  • Most S3-compatible on-prem object storage
  • Fast, local access to data

How the Rubrik + Cloudian Data Protection Solution Can Work for You

Cloudian serves as an on-premises backup, replication, and archival target for Rubrik backup processes. If you wish to move data offsite, policy-based tiering to the public cloud provides a simple disaster recovery option.

CASE STUDY: Ziekenhuis Oost-Limburg (East Limburg Hospital System)

“Thanks to the solution, the engineers, who in the past worked on changing tapes and checking the backups, have time to work out other projects.”

Kurt Gielen
ICT Operations Manager, ZOL

Ziekenhuis Oost-Limburg (ZOL) is a dynamic, non-university hospital with 811 beds. Activities are spread over 3 campuses: campus Sint-Jan in Genk, campus Sint-Barbara in Lanaken and the Medical Center André Dumont in Waterschei.

Orange Cyberdefense, the hospital’s partner for their core network and security solutions, developed a 2-part backup solution with simple, policy-driven Rubrik backups stored on hyper-scalable Cloudian S3 object storage. This combined solution allows the hospital to scale infinitely and securely.
