Cons
I would like more integration with security. We need to show the value of the product in regards to handling security. For example, how it handles current malware or viruses. IBM should be more proactive in this direction.

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.
