Cons
It was challenging to back up our Exchange database, which is one of the reasons we did not continue using this solution.The licensing model is not very flexible. Every time we upgrade our storage size, we need to upgrade the Avamar license.The client caches and deduplication system have a few problems.There are limitations when trying to use this solution with Hyper-V.

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.
