What is most valuable?

It has a quick setup and then it is hands-off. It’s a backup product, and you want to set it up and forget about it. For the VMware side, you can set up policies by resource pools, clusters, and folders. This helps with the "set up and... more»

How has it helped my organization?

What do you think of Rubrik?

Primary Use Case Rubrik was purchased to replace our aging backup solution. Providing us an 'all-in-one' unit to manage backup, DR, and BC. • Improvements to My Organization Newly onboarded and very impressed.
