Rubrik has announced the launch of a new technology alliance program supporting the development of an ecosystem of solution partners for the Palo Alto-based company’s Cloud Data Management, Polaris SaaS platform, and Rubrik Datos IO product.
The program offers three tiers of membership with progressively increased requirements and benefits for each tier. Key benefits include access to the vendor’s APIs and engineering resources; joint marketing offerings and sales engagement programs; and also training and support.
“We see our customers investing in solutions that simplify, automate and streamline the integration of cloud into their infrastructure,” said Ranajit Nevatia, the company’s vice president of business development and alliances. “TAP enables Rubrik, and our partners to offer more paths for customers to get to the cloud, more solutions that save time, and new ways to simplify complex IT infrastructure.”
The company hopes its open API architecture will encourage third-party developers to create an ecosystem of high-value data management applications to run on the platform. The TAP is the programmatic underpinning for this objective.
Enterprises are experiencing substantial data growth as a result of digital transformation and other technology developments. The new TAP program is expected to stimulate the development of technologies that effectively address the impacts.
