How It Works: Rubrik NAS Protection

Have more data than you can actually secure? Learn how Rubrik keeps up with reliable backups, rapid recovery, and flexible NAS data management.

how it works

Unparalleled performance and efficiency

Effortlessly scan, index, and move billions of files and objects in just a week with zero hardware. NAS Cloud Direct employs parallel data streams to optimize network throughput and ensures minimal user disruption through dynamic throttling.

Data Search

Highly secure NAS backups

Protect your NAS data from cyber-attacks with encryption at-rest, immutable, air-gapped backups and credential isolation. Prevent attackers from discovering your NAS backups and ensure data cannot be modified, deleted, or encrypted.

Data Discover

Ransomware detection and sensitive data monitoring

Quickly identify and locate which NAS files were impacted by ransomware using Rubrik Anomaly Detection. Identify the presence of sensitive NAS data and gain insights into security posture to limit the risk of exposure.

On-Premises Object Storage Protection

Robust Support of S3 Storage Platforms

Protect your on-premises S3-compatible object stores and benefit from improved security, ultra-fast speeds, operational efficiency, and quicker granular recovery. Seamlessly integrate with on-premises S3 storage platforms such as Dell ECS, NetApp StorageGrid, Pure Flashblade, Cloudian,, RedHat CEPH and IBM Cloud Object Storage.

Cloud archival for improved cost savings

Identify aged or growing datasets quickly and directly archive to any cloud platform (AWS, Azure, GCP) and storage tier. NAS Cloud Direct optimizes your storage strategy by bundling files into larger data blobs and employing compression techniques for backup and archive data. This not only reduces transaction and storage costs but also results in substantial savings on hardware and licensing expenses.

API First

API integration with storage platforms

NAS-CD offers interoperability with generic NAS systems and API-level integration with Dell EMC Isilon, NetApp FAS, Pure FlashBlade, and Qumulo. As a result, a single NAS-CD instance provides data protection even for heterogeneous storage environments.
