Rubrik's tube: Pure play
Rubrik's r300/r500 Series backup appliances now go faster with Pure Storage FlashArray //m arrays in front of them, claims the vendor.
The appliances (specs here (pdf)) are called Converged Data Management systems and provide an on-premises and scale-out system that offers backup, claimed instant recovery, data orchestration, catalog management, and cluster-wide deduplicated storage that is meant to render backup software redundant. Long-term protection needs are served by squirting data off to the public cloud. A Rubrik-Pure combo offers more than 250 TB/hour throughput per Rubrik Brik (based on logical capacity). That's more than 4.2TB a minute and D2D (disk to disk) backup isn't in the same league as F2HFD (flash to hybrid flash/disk) backup. ®
