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.

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

Reviewed 4 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

Easy Corporate Backup

Reviewed 4 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 4 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.

Amazing backup solution, always adding more features!

Reviewed a year ago

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. It's great.

Pros

It's FAST. Backups complete in no time. We used to have a 12-16 hour long backup window, with Rubrik that's been shortened to about 3 hours and it doesn't even need that. Also it's build "custom" so no need to plug in Java or linux commands, most stuff is done through the gui or APIs and it all easy to understand, learn, and use.

Cons

Replication and archival could use some help. Replication only to another Brik, and archival, while it works, is slow and tends to not be very space or bandwidth efficient.

Does the Job well, Great Product

Reviewed 4 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.

Set it and forget it (Mostly)

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

I do not need to monitor it all the time. I can just create SLA's and apply them to VM's/servers. Then I can sit back and let it backup. When we have run into issues support has been very easy to work with. Since they are still a new/growing company they take customer feedback seriously and look to implement it where they can.

Cons

Some features do not work as shown, but support has been great to help resolve these issues. We were sold on some features that currently do not exist but will be coming in a future update.

Works Great but Lacking as a Overall Solution

Reviewed 4 years ago

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

Pros

Dashboard interface is extremely easy to use for real time tracking of backups. Great customer support if you experience any issues.

Cons

Interface is somewhat all over the place when it comes to checking the status of recently run backups causing us to experience delays when tracking which are successfully completed vs those with errors.

Excellent Backup and Replication Solution

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

-It's quick and fast. -Easy User Interface and Beautiful design -Pretty much universal support: Windows, Linux -Easy to learn and it's like an Apple Time Machine backup where you can browse for files and mount pretty much instantly.

Cons

Nothing bad about this product. The product performs well and efficiently. Pricing is a different issue because you pay what you get and this product delivers well so it's expected.

The Rubrik platform is very easy to deploy and simple to manage.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

The software is built really well with an easy look and feel. The backups can be run automatically on several different schedules and the recovery time on the appliance can be completed in minutes.

Cons

The only Con is not a direct integration to tape backup. It requires a third party solution that is an additional purchase with and additional support contract.

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

Reviewed 4 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.

Hands down the best backup product I have used

Reviewed 4 years ago

This has massively sped up and simplified our whole backup process

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.

Cons

Cost but its still worth it with the features it offers. Could offer more in the way of e-mail reports and breakdowns on Jobs
