Quotes From Members Comparing Commvault vs Rubrik

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
Backup and archive with a single window, with a single backup job. You only need to type "c".Cloud integration.Great archive feature, OnePass, for the file system and Exchange servers.A very stable and scalable platform (you can backup/restore/protect a couple of MBs or hundred of TBs as well from the same console/platform).One-Pass (Archive) DataBase backup (Online Backup and Granular level restore), VM backup and restore.Well documented SQL views and customizable reports, together with scripts and workflows provides ability to automate processes and ensure proper controls are in place.The cloud integration is a massive win for us, giving us a single backup service for all of our on-premise and cloud systems.The most valuable feature is the ability to backup over the dedicated Fiber Channel directly from SAN.

We had some VMware issue as VMware did some changes on the AHCI drivers. Rubrik saved our environment those times.It works with VMware and Hyper-V without agent installation.Ease of use: Analytics tracking of what is being backed up.Intelligent agent technology.They have a great PowerShell module and easy mediums to speak to the people who create and enhance them.One platform for instant recovery.The search functionality is second to none as the speed of the search is fast across the whole system and predictive.

Cons
I just wanted to compare the features, which are there in EMC NetWorker, which are not available in Commvault. We have things using Networker.Training.Reduce the complexity for better understanding of the reports. There are a lot of variables in which you can get confused while elaborating on reports.Endpoint backup.Mostly controls, visibility, cost allocation.The new HTML 5 based management portals are very nice, but do not yet have all of the features of the Java based client.Bare-metal restore needs some work. It's not intuitive and seems to have been an afterthought.

The open source database needs to be supported.With multiple Rubrik clusters setup in an environment, it becomes painfully obvious that this product needs a central management console.Report enhancement.There are some corner cases where the Rubrik Connector (Agent) still doesn't work for our clients.The functionality is missing, but they are very receptive to our thoughts and ideas.Rubrik can only leverage cloud storage for archiving and has no cloud failover.If I could take a snapshot from a physical and be able to stand it up as a virtual immediately without the need to rebuild an entire system and restoring files, that would be HUGE.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Licensing could be better explained. Sometimes, it's unclear what features are available in different licensing models.New licensing is easy and affordable.There is now a subscription based licence option that, depending on your environment, could offer a more efficient method to licence the solution if you are OPEX cost driven rather than CAPEX.If budget allows using the per socket license and not the agent based with per GB counter for Dedup is the way to go.

The setup cost is a bit high, but the solution is an all-in-one solution.You will pay less than you think for such a wonderful product.It’s simple, straightforward, and we were able to see 50% hard savings.When we compared the overall costs, Rubrik was cheaper because the engineering and operational side required FAR LESS dedication. So, all in all, they actually were cheaper than the competition.
