Ideal becomes Rubrik partner

20 April 2017

Ideal has signed an agreement with Rubrik to become a sales and technology partner in the Rubrik ‘Brik Layer’ partner programme.

Rubrik Cloud Data Management orchestrates mission-critical application data (virtualised and physical) across clouds, while delivering data management functions in a single, run-anywhere platform. Built for the cloud generation, Rubrik eliminates the complexity of legacy solutions with an automated policy engine that manages data throughout its lifecycle.

Rubrik simplifies legacy enterprise backup and disaster recovery. It collapses backup software, catalogue management, replication, and de-duplicated storage into a single appliance that scales linearly. Rubrik’s distributed architecture means that deduplication and other data services scale in-line with the cluster to maximise efficiency and savings. It delivers near-zero recovery times without rehydration to primary systems, perfect for recovering reliably from ransomware.

Great addition

Roland Stritt, channel director EMEA for Rubrik, commented: “From the very first contact with Ideal, it was clear that it would be a great addition to the Rubrik partner programme. Ideal's think customer mindset means that it is trusted by its customers to help them navigate the increasing complexity around data management and backup. We are excited about having Ideal on board, and look forward to working with its teams to help delight its customers.”

Ideal technical director Mick McLean added: “Rubrik has a unique and compelling proposition which solves many of the issues that clients have managing backup across legacy and cloud infrastructure."

"The Rubrik solution simplifies the data centre through a single API-first architecture, providing a multi-purpose cloud data management platform that goes beyond backup. The use of both cloud and automation enables customers to simplify even the most complex backup infrastructures, leveraging the increasing availability of low-cost external storage to retain data over the long-term."
