Rubrik and NetApp extend partnership, offer greater data management solutions

By Catherine Knowles

Rubrik and NetApp have extended their partnership to bring greater data management and cloud capabilities to customers.

With this deepened collaboration, Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management Platform will be available on NetApp’s Global Price List (GPL).

Together, NetApp and Rubrik aim to remove the data management complexity by offering a common set of data management tools across a data fabric.

NetApp and Rubrik will continue their momentum into the next fiscal year with NetApp having the ability to resell Rubrik products, Rubrik Go Business Edition and Rubrik Go Foundation Edition, and accelerate sales through NetApp go-to-market efforts.

This partnership is also important for partners of both companies and expands the access for Rubrik partners to more seamlessly connect with the NetApp partner ecosystem, the companies state.

The combination of Rubrik Cloud Data Management in conjunction with enhanced NetApp ONTAP software offers greater consolidation, deeper cloud integration and continuous data availability for improved simplicity, efficiency and protection of business-critical enterprise applications, the companies state.

Rubrik chief commercial officer Wendy Bahr says, “This extended partnership is game changing for our partners and customers because we will have the ability to offer Rubrik’s modern data protection on top of our industry leading systems, software, and cloud service solutions.

"We’re thrilled to deepen our partnership with NetApp and look forward to our future innovations we’ll be delivering together.”

NetApp senior vice president and general manager Kim Stevenson says, “Our customers are experiencing a rapid acceleration to data-driven digital transformation and implementing hybrid multi-cloud solutions to drive innovation.

"Rubrik and NetApp together are delivering data management solutions for digital transformation in a hybrid multi-cloud world.”

Insight Enterprises and GDT also commented on the partnership.

Insight Enterprises chief architect Juan Orlandini says, “The partnership between Rubrik and NetApp is exciting as they represent a foundational element of the journey to a resilient, efficient and effective hybrid multi-cloud.

"Rubrik’s Data Management Platform and NetApp’s Data Fabric enable our clients to create best-of-class services for their traditional and Cloud Native workloads.

"These capabilities, coupled with Insight’s support and managed services, enable organisations to reduce complexity and quickly capitalise on the value of hybrid cloud."

GDT vice president engineering John Woodall says, "This deeper partnership between Rubrik and NetApp is the natural extension of both companies’ strategy of providing data management services for customers no matter where they deploy workloads and will allow customers to realise the full potential of protected data storage and cloud data management.

"This partnership between NetApp and Rubrik expands and accelerates the requirement to give customers the freedom of choice and flexibility they need to derive value from their data; no matter where it best serves their needs, all while keeping their data secure and protected."
