Rubrik : API Call for Downloading a File from a Snapshot

Background You have a bunch of snapshots in your Rubrik appliance and you would like to download a file from one of them. I have a particular use case, where I need to attach a file to a report email from a backup to prove this has been successfully completed. This is how our DBAs can confirm that Rubrik is doing the job right.

Nutanix CE : Version 2019.02.11 has been released !

Breaking news! Nutanix just released a brand new version of Nutanix Community Edition - 2019.02.11. This release is based on AOS 5.10.1 and then the Prism UI has been revamped ! Upgrade process is smooth as usual with the 1-Click philosophy. As a matter of fact, the general rule of thumb is :  First upgrade Prism Central; Next upgrade AOS; Lastly upgrade hypervisor. Once completed, you have the new software release ! And the famous responsive UI. If you are lucky enough and got sufficient amount of memory, you can deploy prism central and then test Calm. This is not my case as I only have 32 GB per node. To be honest, it's been a while since I was waiting for this new version adding more storage optimization, new UI, ... But generally speaking, this is more to sync CE release with the official AOS release train. To get it now, just jump onto this blog post and follow the instructions.

Webinar : I'm Guest Speaker !

First, I need approval from both my management and the marketing team to decide how this can be done, in what context, how the company brand will be used and what am I allowed to tell publicly. Hopefully this step went well and they all agree on the principle and of course wanted to do some screening on the content before the D-Day. Then, I had to produce content. The subject of the webinar itself was very attracting :  A Customer Love Story: From Legacy Tape to Next-Gen Data Protection with Rubrik and Nutanix.  Ok, let's start from there. Important to know, this will be a shared webinar
