What is most valuable?

In terms of Rubrik Go's most valuable features, their VM features are good.

What needs improvement?

If you're going for Rubrik, you are not opting for the tape library because Rubrik doesn't have the fiber cable connected to the tape library. But if a customer is looking for backups on the tape library, it should all work because in… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Rubrik's licensing is on a yearly basis. It depends on how much storage you are utilizing online. Sometimes if we go over the VM basis, it will cost us more, so we go on a capacity basis. So, it depends on how much storage you are procuring… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Currently, I am using Veritas. I didn't switch. I just checked Rubrik as of now because I needed to know the ins-and-outs of how it works and what other features it has and what it supports. It has these things, but I still haven't really… more»

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of 1 - 10, I'd give Rubrik Go an 8.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature with Rubrik is that even though the data is already in the cloud, it's an AWS, so by accessing the on-prem appliance you can still search because it is indexed from that appliance. It can be restored from cloud directly to your Rubrik or to the terminal unit or server. With… more»

What needs improvement?

One of the issues with the product is that you cannot postpone a specific backup job. If you try to do that, every backup job is paused. It's a global pause, not just a specific object-level pause. I would like to see them include a feature that would allow me to pause per object level because if… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

In terms of appliances, there isn't any complex licensing. Extra costs are related to capacity. If you need to archive your data in the cloud, that would involve an additional license fee. It's an expensive product. Most of the target customers are from major vendor-based enterprise companies but on… more»

What other advice do I have?

Rubrik is a backup or cloud data management company but they are now focusing on the security side and are including data classification. I don't know if that's a good thing. I always recommend the version prior to the latest one. If there are any issues with bugs or something isn't quite right in… more»

What is most valuable?

Clients find the cost very good and enjoy the large cloud compatibility. It also has good automation. The solution is easy to install; our team just has to put together the plan, give it to IT and let them handle it. Other solutions are quite complex, but this is much simpler.

What needs improvement?

The support needs to be improved. There are some areas where we're dependant on the support team and we can't resolve issues that are on-site. The solution doesn't give too much user interface to the end-user and seems to hold back a lot of resources. If you were to compare it to, say, EMC, the… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I've previously used EMC. While Rubrik is easier to install, EMC has much better documentation for the end-user to take advantage of.

What other advice do I have?

We work with a hybrid deployment model. I'd advise others to look at their environment before considering the solution. Users considering it should take time to figure out their scalability expectations as well as what other applications they're running and what their database is. Although I haven't… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it is a hyper-converged backup appliance with everything in one box. It has an easy-to-use interface that is not complicated.

What needs improvement?

There should be an option to generate reports in PDF format, rather than only in Excel, or CSV format. Being a modern backup solution, Rubrik should have an option to back up a Kubernetes cluster. Other solutions support this, yet I have not even seen it on their roadmap. It is the next big thing… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This is a very costly solution.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ease of use for backing up VMs. The speed of reading and writing VMs is very good.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better integration with applications, such as those from Microsoft, to make backing up from those applications simpler.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I also have experience with Commvault complete and Acronis. The performance of Rubrik is similar to that of Commvault. Commvault has all of the features that you want from a backup solution, including things that other solutions do not have, apart from Symantec.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Rubrik Go. This solution is very simple and easy to use, and it is easy to implement, but I would like more enhancements and features to be added. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the storage efficiency, as the storage footprint is very good.

What needs improvement?

Integration with the client is something that needs to be improved. Scalability can be an issue because of the appliances, so improvements can be made in that regard. I would like to see easier… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Rubrik Go is more cost-effective than similar solutions by other vendors.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to using this solution, we used Dell EMC NetWorker. We switched to Rubrik because it was cheaper.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Rubrik Go and my advice for anybody who is implementing it is to be clear on the subscription and the plans, as well as the migration effort that is required. I would rate this… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at Veeam before settling on this solution.
