Most Helpful Review
The deduplication engine. Right now, we're at about 10.5 to 11 times deduplication of our backup data.
You can store backups for a while.
The flexibility. Being able to virtualize it, port it wherever I like, test my backups, test my DR capabilities whenever I like without impacting anybody.
It's pretty simple. Once you set it, it goes; and then the idea of being able to get it to the cloud very quickly. It's kind of a set-it-forget-it.
Most importantly is having that island into that datacenter, and being able to address things in the same console. Thus, it is irrelevant where it's stored.
Being able to move data seamlessly from one-premise to the cloud (Azure). It works great. The backup solution is perfect for us.
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.
Instant recovery of virtual machines allows for the restoration of services in minutes.
I really want to partner it with the SnapCenter. We haven't implemented that yet. We're upgrading all of our stuff to the ONTAP 9, which you had to have.
More than a 500 volume limit. At the moment, it only supports up to 500 volumes for SnapMirror and that's a problem. We've got 750, so a larger limit for volume replicas for SnapMirror.
What could be helpful is different user base authentication so then maybe we could allow different customers to point to a single appliance and they only see the backups and things that they have.
There are some bits it could do better. With tighter integration maybe with Veeam, or something like that, it'd be really good.
More capacity with the basic model of the AltaVault would probably help out.
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.
Lacks availability in a NFR format of virtual appliances to test them in public cloud environment.
