Cloud data management platform provider, Rubrik, has been designated a global ISV co-seller through the Microsoft Partner Network and will offer its hybrid cloud data management solution on Microsoft Azure.

Rubrik has updated its cloud data management platform to include support for Microsoft Azure Stack as well as support for application migration to Microsoft Azure through its CloudOn solution. The integration would help companies, governments and nonprofits digitally transform their organizations and fully leverage a hybrid cloud model.

Co-seller designation would enable Rubrik and Microsoft to offer Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management platform as well as Azure Cloud Services and Azure Stack to its customers. Deploying Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management platform alongside Azure cloud and Azure Stack would allow companies to protect, recover, manage and secure critical workloads whether they are in the cloud or on-premises. In addition, customers will be able to use the Rubrik Cloud Data Management platform to “seamlessly” orchestrate applications and data across Azure and Azure Stack.

As a Microsoft ISV Co-Sell Managed Partner, Rubrik expands its reach into the Microsoft customer ecosystem with everything from co-selling to joint demand generation campaigns. Rubrik would deliver a “scalable, efficient” data management solution in the cloud, allowing enterprises to migrate workloads in the cloud and enabling cloud tiering to “cost-effective” locations over time.

“Microsoft Azure is a trusted partner in the enterprise and we’re thrilled to be going to market with Microsoft,” said Ranajit Nevatia, Vice President, Business Development & Alliances, Rubrik. “Together, we will help customers fully leverage a hybrid cloud model so they can digitally transform their organizations, be more productive and move faster.”

Microsoft Azure Stack

“It’s exciting to see Rubrik take advantage of Microsoft Azure and Azure Stack to offer solutions that give our customers choice and make it easier for them to migrate and manage data for both cloud-native and hybrid cloud applications,” said Ron Huddleston, Corporate Vice President, One Commercial Partner, Microsoft.

In July, Rubrik was one of the first data management vendors to announce support for Microsoft Azure Stack and continues to align on technology and shared go-to-market investments. Rubrik pioneered live mount for SQL to deliver “near-zero” RTOs and introduced cloud instantiation on Azure for ‘server-less’ test/dev and disaster recovery. Rubrik has achieved Gold Cloud Platform competency and offers end-to-end coverage of Microsoft technologies and services. For customers in the federal space, Rubrik supports Azure Government Cloud.
