Rubrik today announced the release of Alta 4.2, the latest advancement in its Cloud Data Management platform. With Alta 4.2, Rubrik reinforces its market-leading position as a single control plane for the enterprise hybrid cloud, with further support for private cloud, public cloud, and traditional data center workloads. Rubrik users now have the ability to protect a broad set of cloud-native AWS EC2 workloads and traditional enterprise platforms like AIX and Solaris with the same data management software, helping organizations bridge the gap between existing and future infrastructures.
Most enterprises are interested in developing a hybrid cloud computing strategy to exploit the benefits of public cloud infrastructure as a service/platform as a service (IaaS/PaaS) for better elasticity, agility and overall operational efficiency. According to polling results from Gartner’s Data Center Infrastructure & Operations Management Summit, 32% of IT leaders reported that developing a private/public/hybrid cloud strategy is the largest data center (DC) challenge they face.¹ Enterprises adopting the hybrid cloud look for flexibility to easily migrate workloads across environments based upon economic or business requirements.
“There is no question that hybrid cloud is the future, and adoption will be driven by both present workloads and future architecture,” said Arvind Nithrakashyap, Chief Technology Officer at Rubrik. “We built Alta 4.2 to enable every aspect of an enterprise hybrid cloud strategy. Our goal is to make it simpler for every organization to adopt the public cloud and to build an AWS-like, self-service cloud offering of their own. And we ensure everything is integrated in one, full-featured solution, so your infrastructure team has the same Rubrik experience whether you’re working with proprietary UNIX workloads or cloud-native applications.”
