VMware Vendor Brief: Rubrik – IT Should Just Work
Rubrik have become the new “cool kid” of backups and in the past couple of years I’ve seen lots of enthusiasm in the community for the product. To reinforce this their stand at the Barcelona show featured a Mercedes Formula 1 car, their marketing giveaways include custom LEGO figures based on Mr Men books (you can’t not be cool with that combination), and they topped it all when they gave away 1000 copies of the Host Resources Deep Dive book by Niels Hagoort and Frank Denneman to attendees. Aside from the swag Rubrik have made impressive steps in the Gartner Magic Quadrant and received awards at VMworld US last month.
So many books, @FrankDenneman and @NHagoort must be getting writers cramp! #VMworld #hostdeepdive pic.twitter.com/ycHXYcK6tS

Whilst at VMworld I was privileged to be able to get a Rubrik executive briefing with Bipul Sinha, Cofounder and CEO, and Jerry Rijnbeek, Director of Sales Engineering. This was a great paring for me, Jerry being the salesman was suitably enthusiastic and outgoing about Rubrik both now and in the future whilst Bipul was quieter, more reserved, whilst exuding confidence in the product they had built and its ability to simply meet a backup requirement quickly and painlessly.
