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.

Cons
We want the backup job to consume fewer resources, as the utilization is very high if we choose the best compression.It is missing the file and folder backup; however, this product is meant for virtual machine backup and recovery, so that is really outside of the scope of the software.An improvement would be to include a general data backup solution that is not only for virtual machines.I think it is important to work not only in replicating the virtual machines in Amazon AWS, but in other cloud systems.An improvement would be to give us more control over the email alerts, with different emails going to different addresses based on a set of rules.The upgrade process is a bit dated and could use some changes.UI could use some upgrades. The UI is basic, but functional.​It would be great if the product could be expanded to support other virtual technologies.

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.
