How do I use Rubrik with Wasabi?

Wasabi is a validated member of Rubrik's Technology alliance program  and we have worked with Rubrik to certify our joint solution. This solution brief  describes how Rubrik can be used with Wasabi. 

Note: Rubrik's cloud data management software release 4.2.2 and above is certified to be used with Wasabi. The testing below was conducted with release 5.2

NOTE: Rubrik does not support migrating backup data from one object storage target to another. Please contact Rubrik support for more information.
