Rubrik and AHV: Say No to Proxies

The last couple of years I am a huge fan of backup software that removes the need for having proxies. Rubrik provides a proxy-less backup solution by using the Nutanix Data Services Virtual IP address to talk directory to each individual virtual disk that it needs to back up.
Rubrik and Nutanix have some key advantages with this solution:
• AOS 5.1+ with version 3 API’s provides change region tracking for quick efficient backup with no hypervisor based snap. This allow for quick and efficient snapshots.
• With AHV and data locality, Rubrik can grab the most recently changed data without flooding the network which can happen when the copy and VM might not live on the same host. For Nutanix the reads happen locally.
• Rubrik has access to ever virtual disk by making an iSCSI connection to bypass the need of proxies.
• AOS can redirect the 2nd RF copy away from a node with it’s advanced data placement if the backup load becomes too great during a backup window. Thus protecting your mission critical apps that running 24-7.
• Did I mention no proxies? 🙂
