Cloud data management company Rubrik has announced the launch of Rubrik Polaris, a SaaS platform for Data Management Applications. Rubrik claims its Polaris solution to revolutionize the data management market – specifically backup/recovery, archival, and DR – by providing a global policy framework, workflow orchestration, and deep data intelligence as cloud-delivered applications.

The Polaris SaaS platform creates a unified system of record for business information across all enterprise applications running in data centers and clouds. The system of record includes native search, workflow orchestration, and a global content catalog, which are exposed through an open API architecture.

Rubrik and other developers will leverage these APIs to deliver “high-value” data management applications for data policy, control, security, and deep intelligence. These applications address the challenges of risk mitigation, compliance, and governance within the enterprise.

“What is so unique about Rubrik Polaris is that it delivers a single system of record across all business information,” said Bipul Sinha, co-founder, and CEO of Rubrik. “We are delivering a new class of data management applications that will allow enterprises, for the first time, to address all segments of the business for compliance, governance, and security.”

Multi-Cloud Control

Polaris GPS is the first data management application debuting on the new Rubrik Polaris SaaS platform. Polaris GPS would deliver a single control and policy management console across globally distributed business applications, which are locally managed by Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management instances. The key benefits of Polaris GPS would include:

  • Global Dashboard – An interactive global map instantly visualizes all applications and data contained across physical, virtual, and cloud topologies.
  • Custom Analytics and Reporting – An on-demand intelligence engine delivers actionable knowledge.
  • Global System Activity – A macro view would provide a quicker time to resolution for any system troubleshooting, enabling enterprises with large, complex environments to quickly identify, isolate, and prioritize incidents.
  • Global Data Management Policy – Enterprises can “easily” produce records to demonstrate global SLA compliance for data spread across on-premises and multiple clouds. Point-in-time activities across different applications and locations can be surfaced through search.
