With data volumes, backup and recovery requirements becoming ever more demanding in Formula One, the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team is investing in “class-leading” technology in order to stay ahead. That’s why Mercedes-AMG Petronas has confirmed a new team partnership with Rubrik, specialists in Cloud Data Management.
Specifically, the Mercedes-AMG Petronas team will be using a multi-node Rubrik cluster at their Brackley headquarters to protect the team’s critical race data. The team will also use Rubrik’s REST API (Application Programming Interface) to integrate with its current tools to analyze their data utilization. With this information, the team expects to become even more efficient in how it manages and utilizes the vast volumes of race data.
“We are delighted to welcome Rubrik to Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport,” said Toto Wolff, Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport. “In the fast-moving world of information technology, it’ s essential to be right at the forefront, particularly for us in the area of data management, and we look forward to working with Rubrik to maximize our potential in this area.”
Rubrik delivers cloud data management for enterprises with data protection, search, analytics, archival and copy data management. Hybrid cloud enterprises would benefit from Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management platform with simplicity, instant data access, app-mobility, policy-driven automation, Ransomware protection, and analytics at scale.
