Rubrik Pricing, Features, Reviews and Alternatives

Rubrik product overview

What is Rubrik?

Rubrik is cloud data management solution which allows users to manage and automate data backup, offsite replication, archiving, and data recovery through a single platform.

Key benefits of using Rubrik

  • The included suite of APIs allows Rubrik to integrate with third party systems, enabling the provision of data management services and automation of disaster recovery workflows.

  • The real-time, predictive search system delivers near-zero RTOs (recovery time objectives), allowing users to instantly locate files, applications, databases, and virtual machines (VMs).

  • Automations can be created through the built-in policy engine to manage the creation, consumption, and retirement of data services without requiring daily operational management.

  • User access can be controlled with granular, role-based permissions, and compliance reporting is automated for completion of internal and industry audits.

  • Users can schedule, customize, and share visual reports, and view analytics on compliance, operational efficiency, and capacity utilization in real-time.

    Pros
    Amazing, coming off of an old outdated solution Rubrik is leaps and bounds better in pretty much every way. They are always releasing new features and things to try out or systems supported.
    The integration of this with vcenter is fantastic. The backups are lightening fast and restores are exceptionally easy.
    Frankly, Rubrik is an amazing product. It works seamlessly, has several advanced features, and is extremely simple to use.
    Cons
    The inability to manage the expiration of relics. When a VM is deleted, the backups remain in Rubrik, but there is no way to allow these backups to expire.
    No SQL filestream for transaction log backups, no support for smaller database vendors native products.
    The RBAC controls are weak currently and the alert management is too high level. The sql backups can be missed if the server is too busy but this is a pro too.

    We use Rubrik to protect Managed Cloud devices for our clients and we love it

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Rubrik has allowed us to stop focusing on the minutiae of running a homegrown backup storage/orchestration product and focus on automation of the infrastructure/deployment instead Rubrik has improved the performance of our backup jobs, allowing us to perform more backups with fewer resources overall Rubrik has given our clients more choice in how backups function

    Pros

    The Rubrik API is central to the product Rubrik backs up VMware-based VM very well Rubrik is a growing company, which makes the personal interaction we have with their folks very rewarding and productive

    Cons

    The Rubrik product is still young (only a few years old), so it has some room to mature, specifically in the non-VMware backup space Rubrik is a growing company, so sometimes it's difficult to build a relationship with tech support staff when you get a new person every time

    Backups made easy

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Easy to install. Support is excellent. The product has saved us a few times with production servers going down. Instant recover is great.

    Pros

    Setup was a breeze. Easy to create SLAs depending on how many snapshots you want of each vm. Migration to either azure or aws is also handy. Customer support is excellent.

    Cons

    No cons at this point in time as we've had no issues whatsoever with the product.

    I am patiently awaiting the release of 4.1 which should bring massive improvements .

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    We haven't progressed far enough with the product to see value to our overall business objectives.

    Pros

    Rubrik is used to protect 1,000+ objects in my environment with 90%+ being VMware virtual machines. It is being used across the whole organization, globally, with three clusters existing to support our global initiatives. It provides backup protection for my objects and also provides a way to migrate certain data profiles into the cloud. Searchable Content - search for file across datasets allows for quick restores.

    Cons

    I am patiently awaiting the release of 4.1 which should bring massive improvements to the functionality of the system as well as add additional features missing from the product. I feel Rubrik is well suited for customers that want to run high amount of snapshots per day and wish for a lower RPO granularity for restore. It is less appropriate for perhaps customers that want to run all their backups in one evening because of how jobs are queued and spread across the backup window. Missing functionality - allow for more granular intervals across different time segments.

    Brik the holes in your data protection strategy

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Much better ROI over traditional data protection solutions like Avamar. Fastest time to market. High rate of innovation delivers great business value.

    Pros

    Fastest time to Market - literally takes minutes to install and setup (assuming your prerequisites are met). High rate of innovation - Rubrik has a very fast release cycle, new features come out regularly. Amazing support - very high NPS score, these guys care about their customers.

    Cons

    New to the market - but these guys are just getting started. No support for non-x86 workloads. Only starting to support in-guest agents for application and database consistent backups.

    We utilize Rubrik both Internally and as our BaaS solution offering. Its robust API interface allows

    Reviewed 4 years ago
    Pros

    Cloud Archival - Rubrik allows you to easily archive backups to any Objects based storage (AWS S3, Azure Blob, etc.) File level restore - Rubrik allows you to download individual files from snapshot based backups. Without needing to mount or restore the entire VM.

    Cons

    Access Control - Rubrik's user roles and access could be a bit more granular. Current options do not allow for limited read-only accounts.
