(businesspress24) - Rubrik will enable the university to move to the cloud and protect production and research data

LONDON and PALO ALTO, Calif., June 19, 2019 - Rubrik, the Cloud Data Management company, today announced it has been selected by Coventry University to protect its user and research data across Nutanix, Microsoft and AWS environments. The university will also benefit from Rubrik Polaris, the industry’s first SaaS platform for Data Management Applications, which includes GPS for global data management and Radar for quick ransomware recovery.

Coventry University is a dynamic and outward-looking institution with a tradition of teaching excellence, impactful research and bold international partnerships. Its technology acts as a key competitive differentiator to attract the country’s best students, so the university’s IT team is central to its success.

In order to future-proof its infrastructure and leverage cloud technology such as Microsoft Azure for the first time, the team decided to build a new data centre as its previous on-premises environment did not offer this functionality. With the introduction of the new data centre, the team needed best-of-breed technology that can scale with the university as it grows, offer disaster recovery in the cloud, and integrate with existing Nutanix and Microsoft infrastructure, including Exchange and SQL. The team also required strong cybersecurity credentials when selecting a new cloud data management platform.

Rubrik was the clear choice for Coventry University due to its agility and cloud data management innovation. The university’s team was particularly impressed by Rubrik’s immutable file system, as well as Radar’s ability to leverage machine learning to quickly recover from ransomware. With Polaris GPS creating a unified system of record, and Radar enabling ransomware recovery in a few clicks, the team could see that while backup was previously viewed as an insurance policy, Rubrik’s platform offers tangible business value.

Long term, the IT team also plans to use Rubrik to extract more value from the data they hold by leveraging additional cloud technology, such as Microsoft Office 365.

Comments on the news
“As a leading UK university, we want to use the most innovative technology and work with vendors that are developing as quickly as we are. With Polaris, we can really see how Rubrik is adding value to the backup function - it’s no longer just an insurance policy,” said Steve Rogers, Enterprise Cloud and Infrastructure Architect at Coventry University. “Polaris is what ultimately led us to choosing Rubrik. We have a very strong technological vision and we can see how Rubrik can help us get there, especially with its agile development. Rubrik is the future and that’s where we want to be.”

“We’re proud that Coventry University is choosing Rubrik to further their digital transformation and help them recover faster from threats such as ransomware,” said Martin Brown, Director of Western Europe at Rubrik. “As a very progressive adopter of technology, the university very much aligns with Rubrik’s values and we look forward to developing our relationship further.”
