Rubrik Review

Instant recovery of virtual machines allows for the restoration of services in minutes

What is our primary use case?

We use the Rubrik solution to back up our private cloud environment with hundreds of virtual machines.

How has it helped my organization?

The old method of backup wasn't the right product for our cloud solution. The restore and backup times took to long.

What is most valuable?

The most important feature is the instant recovery of virtual machines. It allows us to restore services in minutes.

What needs improvement?

We need one system to manage all the Rubrik clusters. We are now looking into Rubrik Polaris as a solution.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a very stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Not at all.

How are customer service and technical support?

All of the Rubrik engineers know everything about their products.

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

We used NetBackup in the past but it didn't fit with our new requirements.

How was the initial setup?


What about the implementation team?

A Rubrik engineer configured the system for us at location.

What was our ROI?

The instant recovery is what we needed. I don't know the exact ROI.

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

I can't speak for others, but look at what you require in your environment.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

NetBackup, Veeam and Cohesity

What other advice do I have?

Have a look at the Rubrik API Playground to automate a lot of processes.
