We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The solution is really very stable. One good thing about it, compared to other products, is that you can just run it and forget about it. Unless you come across some interruptions in the network, it works like a charm.We chose this solution for the availability of the databases. We can't afford Oracle Grid, this is the best solution if you want something similar that's less expensive.Technical support is very good. If at any time we write a ticket, we get the appropriate answer on time.Oracle Data Guard is a free solution. When you apply for Enterprise Manager, it comes for free with the solution.If you have a problem with your primary site and can't access your primary database, you can continue working with the database that you have as standby on the other site, by changing its role to primary.Another valuable feature is the possibility of backing up the database from the standby database instead of the primary database, to avoid backup process overhead in the primary system.

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
The implementation is complex for anyone who's jumping into it without any experience. It's all command-line driven implementations. For some, that's a turn-off.For every standby server you have, you must pay a licensing fee, which is the main disadvantage.The database administration needs improvement. With Oracle, we have a lot of features for administrating data, but it might be too many. It needs to be simplified. It should be automated. Looking at Enterprise Manager, there are too many KPIs in place.Oracle Data Guard is stable, but you need to keep monitoring the system all the time. You need to keep monitoring the archives.I think it would be great to have a graphical interface assistant (like DBCA, ASMCA, NETCA, etc.) for initial configuration, monitoring, configuring Oracle Data Guard Broker and all the Data Guard Broker commands, without needing Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control installed.

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.
