With the Andes 5.0 release of its cloud data management platform, Rubrik now offers a single software solution for automating, managing and protecting data and applications, whether on-premise, in data centers or in cloud environments. The release includes specific improvements for business-critical and cloud-native applications from different vendors.

The cloud-based data management platform Andes version 5.0 enables end users to protect and organize all their business-critical information for governance, compliance and recovery from a single platform.

According to the supplier, this specifically concerns data management that enables end users to protect applications in data centres and cloud environments, automate self-service on a large scale and reduce operational complexity as much as possible. This while maintaining management, compliance and security against cyber threats.

In addition, the update for business-critical applications introduces NAS Direct Archive to efficiently and securely manage huge unstructured datasets in data center and cloud storage systems, while searching for instant and detailed data discovery worldwide.

In addition, Andes 5.0 offers specific bare metal recovery applications, including full system migration to any hypervisor or cloud instance, for the Windows operating system. Finally, the release includes dedicated automation, compliance, and security solutions for healthcare providers’ electronic health records.
