Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
It's an enterprise product. It's a stable product. We have good support. Almost all databases are in the scope.
Backup and archive with a single window, with a single backup job. You only need to type "c".
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 tech support is extremely helpful.
The live mounting and compatibility of different operating systems is great.
Rubrik can also serve as a secondary host for emergency recoveries.
Features we have requested are typically added to the next product release.
Product support team is excellent, with issues typically being resolved on the same day.
A Google-like file search, system scaling, and a frequent development cycle are some positives that this solution offers.
Rubrik has led to improvement by reducing the amount of failed backups, leading to a reduced workload in IT operations.
It has a streamlined user interface, provides an improved tech support experience, and reduces time required to locate and restore data.
You need quite a lot of human resources to maintain a Commvault environment, to keep it operational. Also, it would be nice to if there were an easier way set up some Commvault components.
The HTML interface is a remarkable improvement. However, there are still some features that are not available in that interface that are available in the Java console, but I'm sure that will come with time.
I just wanted to compare the features, which are there in EMC NetWorker, which are not available in Commvault. We have things using Networker.
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.
Mostly controls, visibility, cost allocation.
The new HTML5-based management portals are very nice, but do not yet have all of the features of the Java-based client.
Its cost is high.
I would like to have a built-in index searching ability of files/system files within the Rubrik interface to determine if a file or item exists, rather than just recovering it, and then doing a search for the file afterwards.
Global management of multiple systems is lacking, as is reporting across multiple installed units.
Improving PowerShell integration would greatly simplify Rubrik management.
A singular system is needed to manage all of the clusters.
It is an expensive product.
It does not offer image-level backups for Hyper-V 2012.
Needs integration with video CD (coming in the next release) and a multi-tenant GUI.
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.
It is a great value, but its cost is still a bit high.
The product is not cheap, but for good reason. It simply works and is very fast.
Rubrik is not cheap. Hopefully, you can archive your data on cheap storage to keep the investment minimal.
The cost was less than our previous provider, and this is a much better product.
Rubrik is an all inclusive price. No additional implementation costs or licencing.
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.
