Pros

The integration of this with vcenter is fantastic. The backups are lightening fast and restores are exceptionally easy.
Ease of Use/ Deduplication, Restore capability with ease/ Archival capability.
Great product that is easy to implement but has a lot of useful features.

Pros

Backing up my work is very easy to do. The software is especially good with office 365.
Solid file and database backup feature. Versioning is built into the product with customization of schedules and standardization across customer base is excellent.
Software is easy to use, set up, and administer. Also the cost is so much better than competing localized products.

Cons

Limited reporting built in to the system and not much report or audit customization availible. Also lackluster RBAC implementation.
Missing functionality - allow for more granular intervals across different time segments.
The uploads are limited with one per session from edge devices.

Cons

Lack of support SQL Server 2017, Difficult to review backup manage stats vs billed amounts.
Inability to RESTORE to "another location" OTHER than the local C: drive of the computer you are administering from.
I've recovered several customer files that were inadvertently deleted with very little trouble.

Rubrik

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

Reviewed 3 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

Rubrik

A backup solution that just works!

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

More than any other backup platform, the jobs simply run and succeed without any other assistance needed. It is set and forget, replacing a solution that required daily work to verify/validate/fix issues from the backups. Instant restore is not instant, but sub 1 minute, which is very fast to recover.

Cons

As it started working from most used to least used features, some edge case backups are not supported. No SQL filestream for transaction log backups, no support for smaller database vendors native products.

It does everything promised, and it's super easy to use. Support is incredible.

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

The ease of use and the fact that it just works. When you do need support, they are very responsive.

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. They are completely unmanaged requiring intervention to clean up.

Pros

Ease of use and speed of backups/restores is a real plus. The search on the web interface is also one of the best I have used and works really well.

A backup system that always works

Reviewed 3 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.

Excellent product!!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall this is a really great product. Anybody who has normal backup needs from Virtualization to SMB/NFS shares can use this product. It even has many of the OS level agents and key application agents like SQL and Exchange. It is missing an Active Directory object level backup/restore. They are working on an Office 365 backup capability (most other products don't have that yet either though). Overall this is a really nice product and it should be at the top of your list to consider if you are overhauling or replacing your backup solution.

Pros

Easy to use Simple to manage support is incredible love the simple code upgrade process

Cons

Missing a few features, many of them are legacy, but still missing. Every release gets more features.

Works Great but Lacking as a Overall Solution

Allows us to backup one of our environments across several different locations / servers and have it viewable from one central dashboard.

Rubrik

Rubrik is being used at my organization for backups of virtual and physical servers enterprise wide.

Reviewed 3 years ago

I no longer feel the need to babysit and monitor all of the backup jobs in the backup system. It simply works when it is supposed to at all times. Live recovery is near instant and handles all mounts through the appliance for rapid recovery. Spinning up test SQL servers from mounts are great for our development team also.

Pros

Backups of virtual machines and live mounts are done really well Storage arrays can integrate with Rubrik. Easy cloud archive setup.

Cons

More storage array integration needed. Easier restore for files that download using the browser. I can't get this to work.

Rubrik is very slick, easy to use, and well built.

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Frankly, Rubrik is an amazing product. It works seamlessly, has several advanced features, and is extremely simple to use. It just...works after you set it up. Their marketing is also pretty awesome, with several themed boxes of goodies you'll actually want to keep and use.

Cons

Rubrik is pretty expensive as far as backup solutions go. A lot of organizations will have a hard time justifying the cost, but given the ease of use in recovering from a backup, it can save a lot of headaches and even some downtime. Do some ROI analysis against your cost of downtime to compare. I think it's worth it for a fair amount of SME's doing business today.

Brik the holes in your data protection strategy

Reviewed 3 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.

Makes backups great again

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

When I have used Rubrik it has been excellent, it makes backups easy again and you can near enough set and forget. It doesn't matter if anyone creates a new VM as this can be targeted automatically via the policies to ensure its backed up and your RPO's and RTO's are met. I think it took me longer to rack the device than it did to configure it and take my first backup

Cons

Just needs more SSO and 2FA but to be fair they are ahead of many vendors, just worth checking with an SE if yours is supported

Rubrik

Easy Corporate Backup

Reviewed 2 years ago

This software is robust, yet easy to use. I definitely recommend Rubrik if you have servers with information that needs to be retained.

Pros

Finding backups across multiple servers and drives was a painless task with Rubrik. Navigating to the file or folder you needed to recover was easy and the recovery process was short.

Cons

Depending on the size of the file being recovered, it would take quite a bit of time to restore the file and then you would have to wait on it to be downloaded.

rubrik review

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

prior to the discovery of rubrik and how amazing it works, i had to babysit and personally monitor all of the backups that are ongoing, now, with rubrik, i have more time to myself as i do not have to be there for backups to be take, rubrik just takes care of them all the way i would have done if i was there to monitor it. The live recovery feature is a bomb as it is almost instantaneous.

Cons

The lack of first party tools for native application level understanding is really irking, although the developers are making up for this by the implementation of third party tools, but i feel they are not the best and mire needs to be done.
