Today’s interview is with Tom Kennedy, Vice President U.S. Public Sector, Rubrik. The interview takes a look at how the federal government manages data. Commonly called Cloud Data Management.
One of the unintended consequences of the proliferation of “Big Data” in the past decade is self – defining. Today, we many data sets, duplicate data sets, and data sets that are dynamically changing. Cheap storage and easy-to-deploy software has only added to this problem.
Fortunately, the federal government has gotten a handle on this situation with a draft action play called the 2018 Federal Data Strategy. This is an attempt to come up with ideas to handle data in large organizations. They talk about enterprise data governance, access, data for decision making, and public use of data.'Federal data can be in multiple clouds . . protecting and being able to orchestrate that data across all those locations is what Rubrik is all about' Tom Kennedy,VP Public Sector Click To Tweet
During the interview, Tom Kennedy illustrates how systems like Rubrik can help put these concerns into place. Rubrik has only been around since 2013 and has had phenomenal success with helping commercial organizations get a handle on data management. It initially focused on backup and data recovery on organizations that ran in the cloud. The general concept is called distributed storage technologies.
Rubrik has technology that allows organizations to scale complex data sets that include Microsoft, Oracle and many others.
Is cloud management a concern of yours? Every federal agency has data in multiple locations. Each data set has to be managed. Do you rely on vendor solutions like those provided by Microsoft?
