What is most valuable?

The absolutely top feature is the easy and fast backup and restore of VMs. It extremely reduces the effort in daily backup and restore tasks. Leading to no more effort for administration of a complex backed up and restored infrastructure.

How has it helped my organization?

* Restore of a mission critical host with legacy backup solution: minimum one day. * Restore of a mission critical host with Cohesity: less than 1 hour.

What needs improvement?

Replication between two Cohesity clusters should be be improved in the next releases. Some workflows in the GUI should also be improved within next releases. Support for more vendors (databases) should also be delivered within the next releases.

* One platform for instant recovery * Search * Development * Cloud

How has it helped my organization?

Rubrik backup is more than twice as fast as our previous solution. Also, its deduplication rate is significantly better.

What needs improvement?

Rubrik can only leverage cloud storage for archiving and has no cloud failover.

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

It’s simple, straightforward, and we were able to see 50% hard savings.

Which solutions did we use previously?

Yes, Asigra. Switched due to cost, near zero recovery times, and the fact that VMDK restores constantly failed.

What other advice do I have?

See past the immaturity of the product. This will improve RPO/RTOs and save you a lot of time and money.
