More Cobalt Iron Pros »

"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."

"In the next release, I would like to see better prices for the licenses."

More Cobalt Iron 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."
