NAS Direct Archive Built for Scale

Efficiently store massive unstructured datasets elsewhere on-premises or in the cloud. Unlock policy-driven simplicity, cost savings, and high performance at scale. Drive operational efficiencies with incremental-forever backups and fast file scans.


Challenges with NAS Backup Alternatives

Traditional NAS backup methods with scale-out appliances and NDMP enforce vendor lock-in, lower performance, and higher TCO.
NDMP: Backup Performance at Scale

Backup window is too long due to periodic full backup requirements, increasing RPO SLA failure rates.

NDMP: Index and Recovery Performance

Slow indexing creates bottlenecks on the infrastructure; without indexing and granular restores, recovery time is lengthy.

Scale-Out Backup Appliances: Higher TCO

Being locked in with storage provided by scale-out backup appliances results in higher TCO.


A Modern, Vendor-Agnostic Approach to NAS

Our non-NDMP design is the foundation of our vendor-agnostic approach to NAS
Rubrik protects NAS data in a generic format, enabling cross-platform archival and recovery anywhere across public or private cloud. Migrate your NAS data to any storage tier of choice to avoid vendor lock-in or drive storage savings for long-term retention.
Being able to manage our NAS archives within Rubrik’s intuitive environment provides better and more transparent protection for our growing NAS environments and allows us to reap the benefits of scalability and cost efficiencies in the cloud.

Benefits with the Rubrik Approach

Cloud Mobility

Backup window is too long due to periodic full backup requirements, increasing RPO SLA failure rates.

nstant Access

Locate and restore NAS data with granularity down to the file-level. Rubrik indexes metadata to enable global search across on-prem and cloud.

Lower TCO

Minimize storage and egress costs with incremental-forever backups. Rubrik only stores metadata while sending files directly to your archival location.
