Rubrik Go Review

Cost effective and has good storage efficiency, but scalability needs to be improved

What is our primary use case?

We use Rubrik Go to back up our enterprise infrastructure, which contains both Linux and Windows machines.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the storage efficiency, as the storage footprint is very good.

What needs improvement?

Integration with the client is something that needs to be improved.

Scalability can be an issue because of the appliances, so improvements can be made in that regard.

I would like to see easier migration.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is good. We use Rubrik Go on a daily basis.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There are challenges with scalability due to the appliances.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not had a need to contact technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to using this solution, we used Dell EMC NetWorker. We switched to Rubrik because it was cheaper.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup of this solution was simple and it took about a week to deploy.

We have two engineers who are responsible for maintenance.

What about the implementation team?

An integrator assisted us with our implementation.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Rubrik Go is more cost-effective than similar solutions by other vendors.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at Veeam before settling on this solution.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Rubrik Go and my advice for anybody who is implementing it is to be clear on the subscription and the plans, as well as the migration effort that is required.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
