Rubrik, a provider of multi-cloud data control platform, in partnership with NetApp, a hybrid cloud data management company, announced the launch of Rubrik Cloud Data Management for NetApp StorageGRID.

NetApp StorageGRID is a software-defined object storage solution that supports industry-standard object APIs such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) API and OpenStack Swift API.

Rubrik Cloud Data Management for NetApp StorageGRID combines Rubrik’s platform with enterprise-grade object storage to automate data lifecycle management through Rubrik’s control plane, while using StorageGRID as a cloud-scale object-based archive target, Rubrik said.

The new solution will help enterprises quickly find and restore virtual machines, databases, files, and more, regardless of location – in Rubrik, in StorageGRID, and across the public cloud.

With policy engines, the solution can automate lifecycle management while optimizing performance, latency, cost, and compliance.

Customers can easily handle rapid data growth while avoiding forklift upgrades for secondary and archive data. Linear scalability allows teams to grow at their own pace.

The Cloud mobility feature allows IT teams to easily migrate to their cloud provider of choice and migrate petabyte-scale NAS shares directly to NetApp StorageGRID.

With Rubrik Cloud Data Management for NetApp StorageGRID, IT teams can power new business applications while quickly and easily optimizing cost and performance at scale, Rubrik claims.

Wendy Bahr, chief commercial officer at Rubrik, said Rubrik Cloud Data Management for NetApp StorageGRID is powerful solution for enterprises looking to accelerate and simplify data lifecycle management at cloud scale.

“NetApp is a strategic partner for Rubrik and we believe this scalable solution will reduce data protection complexities as data continues to grow,” Bahr added.
