Cons
Make sure you check your backups on a regular basis. Backups do get missed with this tool, for whatever reason.I would like to see the pieces that they have put in the web only to be put into the thick client sitting on the desktop client.The way the filtering goes, if you filter on your view, there is no indication that you have made a selection.

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.
