Big news today from storage vendor Rubrik—both on a product front and a business one.

This is a huge round, especially given the current state of the venture capital space, and it is a testimony to Rubrik’s execution to date.

The investment takes Rubrik’s total funding to date to $112 million and will give the company the confidence to ramp up its sales, marketing and operations spend to take advantage of the opportunity it has.

The legacy data management market is estimated to be $48 billion in value, and it is undergoing seismic changes right now.
