Rubrik launches Andes 5.0

Rubrik Andes 5.0 release introduces Oracle database instant recovery, NAS Direct Archive, and policy-driven Epic EHR and certified SAP HANA® protection.

Rubrik has introduced the Andes 5.0 release of its flagship Cloud Data Management platform, delivering a single software to protect, automate, and govern applications and data across datacenters and clouds. Rubrik Andes, the company’s fourteenth and most expansive release, accelerates enterprise digital transformation with groundbreaking innovation for mission-critical applications, including Oracle and SAP HANA databases, and cloud-native applications, including Microsoft Office 365 and NoSQL databases.

As enterprises drive digital transformation initiatives, they grapple with the fragmentation of business applications and data across multiple datacenters and clouds while adhering to ever-more stringent security requirements. To successfully deliver business outcomes, enterprises require a data management solution that can protect applications across datacenters and clouds, automate self-service at scale, and eliminate operational complexity while maintaining governance, compliance, and security against cyber threats such as Ransomware.

“Legacy solutions are not built for digital-minded enterprises to meet compliance and protect against security attacks,” said Rubrik Co-Founder and CTO, Arvind Nithrakashyap. “Rubrik’s Andes 5.0 release provides a single software platform to protect and organize business critical information for implementing governance, meeting compliance, and recovering from today’s intensifying security threats. With Rubrik Andes, enterprises achieve business uptime, accelerate development, and leverage the cloud for all mission-critical and next-gen applications – all foundational to digital transformation.”
