We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"The solution has an effective overwrite feature.""The most valuable feature is its ease of use.""The most valuable feature is the daily incremental site backup.""The replication in the recovery region is the most valuable feature.""When I was using an on-premises backup, there was an external hard drive or something like that. I had a backup server, but I had a few problems related to transfer when I had to restore something that I have deleted. I had to wait for after-office hours to do something like that, but now I just have to send a mail. Within one hour, I have my restored file."

"Even though the data is already in the cloud, it's an AWS, so by accessing the on-prem appliance you can still search because it is indexed from that appliance.""In terms of stability, the product is good.""It has an easy-to-use interface that is not complicated.""The solution is easy to install; our team just has to put together the plan, give it to IT and let them handle it. Other solutions are quite complex, but this is much simpler.""The most valuable feature is the ease of use for backing up VMs.""The most valuable feature is the storage efficiency, as the storage footprint is very good.""Rubrik Go is very simple to use."

More Rubrik Go Pros »

"The notifications on the backup and on the mobile app could be more useful. If they could arrange notes or notifications properly and offer services for managing it in our region, it would be helpful for us.""One of the limitations of AWS Backup is that it only does file-based copying.""If AWS Backup were a hybrid solution that also supported on-premises backups then it would be very helpful, especially if you are doing a migration to the cloud.""This backup tool does the full backup of the entire snapshot server. I would like to have the option to not do the full server backup.""Only the price could be improved."

More AWS Backup Cons »

"Reporting could be improved. For now, it's only exported to CSB files.""If you're going for Rubrik, you are not opting for the tape library because Rubrik doesn't have the fiber cable connected to the tape library.""Being a modern backup solution, Rubrik should have an option to back up a Kubernetes cluster.""If you were to compare it to, say, EMC, the availability of the documentation, training programs, and end-user education aren't as good. Rubrik could improve this.""I would like to see better integration with applications, such as those from Microsoft, to make backing up from those applications simpler.""Integration with the client is something that needs to be improved.""You should be able to add more workloads to Rubrik Go."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We don't use a lot of space, only approximately 900 GB, so the price is reasonable. For standing, it's okay. We normally do a payment to SSML, and they are the ones who pay over there. It is around $100 monthly."

More AWS Backup Pricing and Cost Advice »

"This is a very costly solution.""Rubrik Go is more cost-effective than similar solutions by other vendors.""It's an expensive product if you compare it to traditional backup solutions; however, if you compare it as a total cost of ownership for a solution, it is not."
