Rubrik, Pure Storage, and Cloudian have come together with a unified, data-centric solution that simplifies how enterprises manage backup and long-term data retention in hybrid cloud environments. Rubrik delivers end-to-end data protection, analytics, and compliance for VMs and applications hosted on Pure Storage FlashArray as a secure and intelligent on-ramp to Cloudian HyperStore®. HyperStore is a cost-effective on-prem, multi-data center object storage platform that scales limitlessly while also tiering and replicating with a public cloud.

rubrik-pure-cloudian-solutionPure Storage FlashArray provides fast and reliable block storage for production data and local snapshots. Rubrik directly integrates with both Pure Storage and Cloudian HyperStore, providing a single data management fabric with automated, policy-based protection. Cloudian HyperStore provides on-prem backup, replication, and archival storage for Rubrik data management processes. Policy-based tiering and replication to the public cloud provides extended capacity and offsite storage for disaster recovery.

The Challenge

Managing data growth and protection has become increasingly complex due to legacy architecture. Data centers are strapped with multiple outdated and inefficient hardware and software solutions.

The need for an affordable, simple and effective approach to data life cycle and storage management has never been greater. Enterprise organizations must also ensure that data moving across data centers and to the cloud is simple, seamless, and secure — while also improving restore times from hours and days to near instantaneous.

Next-Gen Data Management

Rubrik eliminates the complexity of legacy enterprise backup and disaster recovery by simplifying and converging legacy architecture. It collapses backup software, catalogs, replication, and deduplicated storage into a single platform that scales linearly.

Deduplication and other data services scale in-line with the cluster to maximize efficiency and savings. It delivers near-zero recovery times without rehydration to primary systems and global file search for instant data access.

Cloudian for Rubrik Capacity Expansion

Cloudian HyperStore is scale-out storage that provides cost-effective capacity expansion for the Rubrik system. Available as an appliance or as software, Cloudian HyperStore is fully compatible with the cloud connector offered by Rubrik.

Cloudian as the Capacity Tier

Cloudian HyperStore is scale-out enterprise object storage that is multi-cloud ready and provides cost-effective capacity expansion with integrated data protection using erasure coding and replication. HyperStore and Rubrik connect seamlessly and are proven together in production environments. HyperStore provides policy-based intelligence while non-disruptive scaling seamlessly across locations with a single fabric for unified control and data visibility. With fine-grain, bucket-level storage management policies, HyperStore also enables customized metadata tagging for intelligent search and analytics.

Simple Integration

Rubrik allows IT to easily automate backup, replication, and archival from Pure Storage to Cloudian HyperStore by using its policy-based engine. No additional software installations or plug-ins are needed to connect Rubrik with Cloudian. Rubrik sends deduplicated data to Cloudian, reducing data transfer and storage costs. With Cloudian, enterprises can also leverage public cloud storage as an additional resource tier or as a secondary offsite location for disaster recovery.

Customizable Data Protection Levels

By combining Rubrik with Cloudian HyperStore storage policies, users can store data in geographically separated regions or data centers. HyperStore also provides the capability of assigning different storage policies on a per bucket basis. For data protection, users can architect the right level of durability — at 14 9s and higher — with data flexibly stored using the right combination of replication and erasure coding.

Replication results in greater performance, but less storage capacity. Erasure coding provides the most cost-effective way to store data because the data is stored in smaller chunks across the cluster. Cloudian HyperStore supports multiple compression algorithms that compress objects on the storage side to save space.
