Rubrik works really great, the compression and deduplication rate are incredible!

2018-03-19

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

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

2018-03-09

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

Data immutability 4. Single platform 5.

Cons

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

Amazing product, great simplicity

2018-03-08

Hassle-free backup, no more need to worry about testing the restoration of any data !

Pros

Simply select the SLA and Rubrik will stick to it ! Storage management is also amazing, expect great storage savings !

Cons

The need to have 10GE is in some environment challenging they could have allowed 1Gbps setup with a warning stating that performance should not be optimal.

Does the Job well, Great Product

2018-03-06

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.

Cons

Also there is no batch recovery without using API calls.

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

2018-03-15

I no longer feel the need to babysit and monitor all of the backup jobs in the backup system.

Pros

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

Cons

More storage array integration needed.

Works Great but Lacking as a Overall Solution

2018-07-10

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.

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.

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

2018-03-22

Pros

Cloud Archival - Rubrik allows you to easily archive backups to any Objects based storage (AWS S3, Azure Blob, etc.)

Cons

Access Control - Rubrik's user roles and access could be a bit more granular.

2018-03-09

This has massively sped up and simplified our whole backup process

Pros

The search on the web interface is also one of the best I have used and works really well.

Brik the holes in your data protection strategy

2018-03-17

Much better ROI over traditional data protection solutions like Avamar.

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

Only starting to support in-guest agents for application and database consistent backups.

A backup system that always works

2018-03-16

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.

Cons

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

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

2018-03-26

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

Excellent Backup and Replication Solution

2018-03-22

Pros

-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 experience with Rubrik has been a great experience from POC to installing and using Rubrik.

2018-03-08

Not many dislikes about the product but would like NAS backup speeds to be faster but I have seen improvements with each software updates with new features.

Pros

The ease of use knowing that the product works and you can verify by the Gui and reports. I like how fast software updates are applied.

2018-03-06

Pros

Ease of Use/ Deduplication, Restore capability with ease/ Archival capability. The UI is easy to use.

Cons

Bare metal recovery of physical servers, Limitation with thier edge devices. The Edge device doe not fit a profile for backing up a 5 VM's as of today as thier Space contraints takes much space in our datatastore. The uploads are limited with one per session from edge devices

Makes backups great again

2018-03-28

Pros

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.

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

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

2018-03-19

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

Pros

It provides backup protection for my objects and also provides a way to migrate certain data profiles into the cloud.

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.
