Rubrik has made data protection simple by combining its software with hardware into a single appliance and building in scale-out capacity, said Nathan Reynolds, executive vice president and co-founder of Clearpath Solutions Group, a Herndon, Va.-based solution provider and Rubrik channel partner.
The Rubrik r300 comes in two models. The r330 is a 2U chassis with three hardware nodes built inside to support up to 200 virtual machines. The r340 is similar, but has four hardware nodes inside to support up to 300 virtual machines. Both have flash-optimized storage.
The software in the r300 is based on Rubrik’s own file system that uses both flash and disk-based storage to do globally compressed and deduplicated backups. List price starts at under $100,000 for the r330, including all the software capabilities.
