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Amazing, coming off of an old outdated solution Rubrik is leaps and bounds better in pretty much every way.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.

Pros

Data is easily accessible from everywhere and backups are generated automatically and efficiently. The ability to access old versions of backups is especially helpful to never lose progress.
Solid file and database backup feature. Versioning is built into the product with customization of schedules and standardization across customer base is excellent.
Very good customer support, and useful online backup function.

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.

Cons

The load of functions can be overwhelming, especially with all of the cryptic abbreviations. Honestly though, this is not a real con, but rather my own problem.
Lack of support SQL Server 2017, Difficult to review backup manage stats vs billed amounts.
I've recovered several customer files that were inadvertently deleted with very little trouble.

Rubrik

Brik the holes in your data protection strategy

Reviewed 5 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.

Rubrik

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

Reviewed 5 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.

Rubrik

A backup system that always works

Reviewed 5 years ago

Look at it as one of a two system backup strategy for protecting your organizations data.

Pros

You can just set up the system to make an backup and never fails, you don't need to be on the computer watching if its doing anything. Also the Live recovery is very fast, you almost don't notice it.

Cons

Some features missing that are road-mapped for future versions of the software such as support for SQL file-streams.

Rubrik

Rubrik is used as the single backup platform within the business.

Reviewed 5 years ago

It's improved operational efficiency, as we now don't have to spend time scheduling backups, and has created very tangible savings. In the next 5 years we expect to save over 55% switching from our legacy provider to Rubrik. It's also mitigated us against any future data centre blackouts through its Azure replication capabilities - while significantly reducing our power consumption and footprint in the data centre.

Pros

1. Replication to cloud 2. SLA based backups 3. Data immutability 4. Single platform 5.

Out of the box reporting could be better - However the API interface allows the generation of custom reports and the ability to retrieve any detail from the system

Rubrik

Does the Job well, Great Product

Reviewed 5 years ago

Some benefits are that the product does the back up process correctly and efficiently for our data and does not need to be constantly monitored like other programs we have used in the past.

Pros

Some pros of Rubrik are that is automatically balances a schedule. Also the feature to instantly live mounts of virtual machines is very convenient.

Cons

Lack of native AD/Sharepoint/Exchange tools which would be a nice addition. Also there is no batch recovery without using API calls.

No more broken snapshots caused by a proxy crash

Pros

Management is very simple and intuitive Compression and deduplication is incredible It ingests data really fast, reducing the amount of time for backups Archiving is made very simple through the cloud storage integration

Cons

The restore of application items like emails from Exchange or tables within databases has to be done with a 3rd party software, it's not integrated inside Rubrik

One of the Best Purchases I've Ever Made

Reviewed a month ago

There was one time that a fellow admin permanently deleted some backups without receiving confirmation on if they were still needed. It turned out that they were still needed and that the backups would be unrecoverable. There were multiple prompts to confirm this action, so we should not have expected it to be recoverable. However, the fantastic support team at Rubrik said "We can't make any promises, because the data should be deleted already. However, we're going to have our engineers use this as an educational experiment." While they were not able to recover all of the data, as it had been overwritten, they were able to piece together enough for us to get the most critical files. I have never seen a support team go this above and beyond the reasonable call of duty.

Pros

The Rubrik appliance is reliable, has a robust feature set, their support team is world-class (seriously the best in the game), and updates add awesome new features far more often than new bugs.

Cons

It can be a little pricey for small to mid size businesses, but It's well worth that cost. Other than that I have zero complaints.
