The Live Mount is one of the most valuable features Rubrik has. It gives me an opportunity to run DR testing. For any patching or DR testing that I need to do, I'm able to run it as if it were my production system but, in reality, it's just a copy of my production system.The fact that the API is so available to us with the playground — there's an internal and public playground — is also valuable. We can write API calls — and although I'm sure there's a way we could hurt the data — we write those calls with a lot of certainty that we won't be destroying anything. We write these API calls using really easy mechanisms and generate automation a lot faster.Also, the web interface is really great. The design, from a user-experience standpoint, is really straightforward and easy to use... they nailed it. Usually, from the very first panel, the dashboard that you land on after login, you've got most of your functionality right around where you need it to be. You've got your new items on the left, you've got your support on the top right. Nothing really seems out of place or just stuck in someplace.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.

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.

[A] feature that the product can improve on is being able to restore Active Directory at a more granular level. For example, it would be good if we could restore actual memberships for users instead of the entire server.I have a personal want which might not necessarily make sense with Rubrik as a company or Rubrik as a software, but it'd be really nice if they could also handle things like item-level backups and restores of Active Directory objects and DNS and DCP objects.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.
