It is fairly stable.If you are a large organization, this is a product for you.Unitrends has helped us cut down the time that it takes to restore a server to its original configuration.Iinstant recovery (allows a spin-up of your image as a VM on the appliance).VM backup is much faster and more reliable, as I can test my backups with Data Copy Access jobs.It is very easy to set up and get started. Almost too easy. We racked this device and had it up and running in less than 15 minutes.It is an easy system to use. The support, if needed, is always willing to help.It is a quick and easy way to organize my backups and to keep track of them.

Cons
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.

There are some questions as to how safely they are storing backup data.The amount of updates which are being released. Updates should be limited to two or three a year, focusing more on quality instead of a rushed bug release.No appliance update notifications.It would be great to have the job throttle/limit the max number of backups on a single ESXi host.It could be a little more customizable.The ability to run just differentials without pulling the full on your archive.There are a few quirks where the GUI, agent, and back-end are not precisely meshed.Network-based storage stability could be improved.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It is a great value, but its cost is still a bit high.The product is not cheap, but for good reason. It simply works and is very fast.Rubrik is not cheap.

No comment.You should be aware how much the monthly costs are to use, what the initial costs for hardware are, and what the options to expand are, if needed.Pricing model constantly changes.We found that the cost of Unitrends was about the same as the Dell DR6300. We liked the fact that the Unitrends appliance was all-in-one.The cost of Unitrends definitely draws you in. The licensing is all included in the appliance, which is a great incentive.Talk with the sales guys. They can work with you on the best package.Initial pricing is competitive. Renewal pricing is steep, so make sure to project costs for the lifetime of the appliance(s).When you purchase initially, get into the program which gives replacement hardware for free when you renew your support agreement.
