Most Helpful Review
The Deduplication and Compression are the most valuable. The processing capabilities (version DD670) could be improved.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
This is a superior and reliable backup system that can handle large capacities with little management.
The backup is very secure. The deduplication using EMC is very good. We are able to make systems and handle random cloning. EMC is a very stable solution for making backups.
The product provides good backup and compression services.
The solution's most valuable feature is the integrated deduplication function.
It's very easy to use the domain once it's been set up. The interface is also user-friendly.
The most valuable features are the deduplication and compression and the Data Domain Boost.
We have never had any issues with Data Domain. It has been stable.
The initial setup was straightforward. Deployment takes about two weeks.
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.
The product lacks some security features that would make it more stand-alone and integrated.
They should reduce the CPC cost to customers. The product is becoming very expensive.
The licensing model was the biggest concern for our company, but the poor support after the initial implementation is of equal concern.
The pricing could be better, but it's still not too expensive.
The firmware upgrades could be simplified. I'm in the process of struggling to upgrade right now.
We have had deduplication and replication issues. When we used another backup software we noticed that it didn't have the same issues.
We are not able to deal directly with the OEM we have to go to their partners in Nigeria.
The pricing model needs to be improved.
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
This is one of the more expensive backup solutions on the market.
There are many options in the pricing structure which can cause some confusion and necessitate the purchase of additional licensing.
In Naira it was twenty-five or twenty-seven million (approximately $75,000 USD) for the implementation and maintenance cost for three years.
Pricing is related to size. A lower range solution might be about $33,000. My customers use higher range versions with a price of around $100,000. That's the price for both the hardware and software.
It is expensive, but the performance and deduplication cover for the cost.
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.
